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".

375ml bottle (8/2013 vintage) pours hazy toasted orange with a finger of head. Nose is musty wood funk, lemon, apple, citrus, hay, toasted bread crust, old attic floorboards. Taste is balanced tart acidity, lemon crisp, dry old wood, old wood closet funk, citrus, lime, apple. Finish is dry dusty barrel, funky apple, grain, stale bread, soft tartness. Fantastic.

Peacehammer (621) - California, USA - AUG 3, 2014
2013 bottle labeled Gueze. Brilliant pale orange. Sour, fruity tannic nose. Very bright and awesome. Sour, balsamic vinegar and oak tannin all across the palate. The definition of Gueze

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sour, citrus, tart. I thought this was very good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy lemon with negligible head. Aromas of sour apples. Taste sour with some tempering sweetness. Very little carbonation. Finish quite puckering and acerbic..

Blonde aux reflets jaunes foncés. La pomme surette, la Granny Smith et la poire asiatique sautent aux narines. Des notes de terre noire et de plate-bande nous donnent l’envie de jardiner! Attaque vive, franche, qui se perpétue dans une superbe allonge. Un classique!

Alusmamuts (281) - LATVIA - JUL 24, 2014
Strong sour aroma. Yellow / light amber with medium whire cap, which fastly disapperas. Sour cider type taste with a strong citrusy bitter note on the last half of tongue.

375ml Belgian flag bottle in Paris July 2014. Dark gold. The aroma starts with grass, hay and a tart,funk element that's cut with strong lemon zest. The taste follows suit with strong citrus acidic notes. The tartness and funk balance each other perfectly and as the beer warmed up pepper and wood notes came out. The mouthfeel was nice and light with high carbonation. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bamsen78 (3140) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2014
Bottle @ Staminee de Garre, Brugge. Pours slightly hazy light amber with small white head. Clear, vinous aroma, with subtle notes of fruit and touches of hops. Vinous flavour with dusty notes and touches of leaves, as well as bitter, hoppy hints. Dry and sourish, but rather mild, aftertaste. Low carbonation. Decent, indeed.
