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".

poured a slight cloudy golden yellow colour with a white head. barnyard, lemons, grapefruits, acid, hay, vinegar, citrus, grains, tart. however for me the 3 fonteinen geuze is a bit better. because of the more sharp sourness.

Bouteille 37,5cl. 28nov2013. Belle couleur blond doré, mousse furtive presque absente . Nez levuré et boisé. Acidité vineuse et aigre très agréable , qui lui confère une belle longueur en bouche , en sent bien la levure et le chêne , finale sèche et astringente . Carbonation très faible. Simple et élégante...une très belle bière. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bouteille 37cl @Bioplanet {Bouchon Août 2013}. Belle robe cuivrée sans col ni effervescence. Nez assez doux, suret avec un pointe de boisé, quelques effluves maltées, peu houblonné. La gorgée est assez douce et développe des arômes fruités de raisin, de pomme, courts en bouche mais long en arrières goûts et en saveurs: l’orge offre un belle rondeur un pue miéleuse, et le froment tapisse bien tout le palais. L’attaque est acide sur des notes fines. En finale cette acidité reste tenace sur les papilles avec un houblon fleuri très discret qui pique la langue. Belle dégustation qui a de la mâche. Assez succulent !

Bottle from Beautiful Beers, consumed at home. Orange-ish gold, effervescent carbonation with minimal head. Scent of grapefruit and lemon, spruce, ginger. Taste is a dry uniform sourness, bordering on acrid. Soothingly tempered aftertaste. Mouthfeel is surprisingly watery, but the carbonation is pleasant. Grows on you.

Cosa dire della regina delle acide? Semplicemente meravigliosa! ambrata sporca con schiuma poco persistente. Al naso un forte profumo di legno bagnato e frutta verde. In bocca corpo medio e decisamente acida come poche nel suo genere. Fruttata ed amara con finale acetico molto gradevole. Birra solo per intenditori consigliata a chi cerca una birra extrema o persone col palato allenato. Crea dipendenza!!

Bottle. Hazy honey gold with cloud like white frothy head. Delicious aromas of lemon blossom, lime juice, apple cider vinegar, oak, some barnyard funk and wet hay. Incredibly complex flavours of sour lemon and lime juice, yeast, a salty/savoury element and oak aged apple cider. Rich, well carbonated mouth feel with immense tartness intertwined. Magnificent beer, which keeps beckoning another sip in a bid to grasp the full flavour profile.

From tap. Sunny gold with smallish whit head. Nose is straight funk. Some gym sock. Oak barrel. Tart apples. Taste is crisp throughout. Bright body of cherries, some apricot. Vague wine qualities. Acidic. Well executed, but no the most interesting of their offering by a mile.
