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".

Gold in colour with little carbonation. Good and sour with some smooth lactic and yeasty qualities. A touch of woodiness on the finish too. This is some great stuff. Thanks radiomgb!

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 25, 2004
Vintage 2002: Small bottle. A mellow gueuze for certain. The most beautiful gueuze I’ve ever poured. Light hazy flax with a reslilient foamy white head that mounts up like vesuvius. Massive and lovely. Nose is interesting. Green apple, oak and only a slight tinge of bretts. Very sour (lactic) and yet not very "hot" with bretts. No crackling fried pork smells, no hazy hot yeastiness, very mellow and subtle. I kind of like that. Flavors also reflect this. The horseblanket has really been put away on this one it is replaced with an overt green apple tartness and a hazy, dignified oakiness. The oak is beautifully round and intensely subtle. Exquisitely dry. The oak really contributes to this. Aftertaste is pungently apple-like. Grannysmith would be proud! At first this was sort of a dissapointment. As I sink my teeth into it it really impresses me. Not as good as the Lou Pepe for certain but a Damn Fine Gueuze. G-rat

Yummmmmmmm. I’m verging on changing my preferred category from Stouts to Lambic/Gueuzes. and this is one of the reasons why. Wonderful aromas waft upward - vinegar acidity and puckering sourness with some earthy yeastiness. Yummm. Thirst-quenching tart flavour that refreshes instantly and forces you back for more as soon as the dry finish leaves you. Yummmm.

burcusabrews (106) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 29, 2004
super concentrated sour lemon rind adn strawberries on the nose. Cloudy golden yellow with a trace of a white head. Super balanced with a great lemon flavor and a clean finish. Really nice geuze but lacked some dimension

dirkules (629) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2004
I wasn’t sure whether or not this one would be worth $14 for 375ml but It was quite close. Amber hazy with a floral tart and acidic taste. Some rhubarb and apple aftertaste makes this one really special. I might not be completely sold on gueuze, but this is a step in the right direction.
