The world's classic Gueuze. A blend of one, two, and three year-old lambics creates a second fermentation in the bottle. The champagne of Belgium. In contrast, the Lou Pepe Gueuze is a blend of three 2-year-old lambics.

Newer vintages are labeled "Organic Gueuze", "100% Lambic Bio" or "Classic Gueuze".

My first gueuze!. Nice aroma acetic and sweet. OK apperance, not much head, but then again is there supposed to be? Special taste, but I like it. A bit lactoacid.

bottle labeled as organic gueuze. sweet and acidic aroma, chalky and fruity and musty smell. holy crap that’s sour; like a liquid version of those candies "warheads" that dries up like rubbing alcohol. tingly and complex, and definitely a sipper.

Pours with an orange-gold body topped by a thin head with little lacing. It’s sour and tart with a nice barnyard note and a touch of lemon. Light bodied, crisp and dry.

2002 vintage. Large foamy white head atop a hazy gold color. Wet rotting vegetation, must, and horseblanket aroma. Bracing sourness that wraps around dusty cobwebs and barnyard flavors. Sourness lingers in the finish, with dried horse manure characters. Mouthfeel is medium light and dry.

Bottle. Amber beer with a thin white head. Sweetish malt aroma with a lemon/tart finish. Tart flavor with some sweetness at end. Lemon/grape/green apple fruitiness. Refreshing and dry finish. Not nearly as sour as other Cantillon beers I’ve had.

09.01.05 375ml bottle, cork date 2003. Paler orange-golden pour with only a trace of head. Aroma is woody, citrus, burning grass, and barnyard. Interesting ashy notes all over the palate, otherwise acid with a blast of sourness. How does that make sense? Juicy pockets of lemony acidity linger around the mouth. Lots of complex grass flavors: dead, old, mulchy, fresh cut, dandelion and clover.

Tasted this at the Cantillon Brewery, Brussels. Have to confess it wasn’t my all-time favourite. Colour was light, slightly cloudy with a small head. Aroma of apples and vinegar. Taste was very sour and had a bitter aftertaste, more grapefruit than hops. People tell me it’s an acquired taste.

Robe blonde légèrement voilée. Arômes de liège. Saveurs sûres et acides de pomette. Subtilités intéressantes au niveau des saveurs aigres.

Thanks Chuck! Poured from a 12 oz bottle all over Chuck’s laptop... I eventually got to sample this beer after he was done cleaning. The aroma is very strong. Mostly, it smells like leather. There’s also some sourness to it that initially hides the leather aroma until you get used to the sour. The leather smells like one of those nice supple leather jackets that are $500+. Anyway, the appearance is a very hazy straw gold color with a thin white head ring. The palate is fizzy and almost comes off as REALLY salty. The flavor is a very sour grape and apple with some leather undertones. Kinda has a flavor that reminds me of nickel as well.
