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".

Copenhagen 19/10 2014. Bottle brought by ny brother in law (bucket of beer). Looks a bit like morning urine. Hazy with almost no head. Very distinct sour aroma. Dull mouthfeel due to low carbonation. Very strong citrus and lemon taste and sour Belgian aftertaste. At first quite unconfortable - But it gets better after your mouth gets used to it. My first queze - a quite special experience.

CEZ (403) - Milano, ITALY - FEB 20, 2015
"Cantillon 100% Lambic" bottle. Hazy light golden body, fine thin head. Strong yeasty aromas, cheese, vinegar, citrus, some horse blanket, with flowers and green fruit in the background. Moderatley sweet, nicely acidic and refreshing, dry and slightly astringent/salty finish. Amazing. Slightly challenging for non-lambic lovers due to the initial sourness but still balanced and easy to drink. Overall impression is excellent.

at_the_hop (30) - Worcestershire, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2015
Tart, fresh and phenolic in equal measure. World class. Would win awards as a cider. Challenging and drinkable at the same time. Don’t drink too much or too early the hangover is a killer.

torleifm (17) - NORWAY - FEB 13, 2015
Ravgul, klar, greit skum. Syrlig aroma med preg av fjøs, epler og sitrus. Syrlig og frisk, med noe sødme i avslutningen.

electrotype (320) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2015 Mon premier "Overall" parfait, 20/20. Cette bière représente, en effet, parfaitement ce que j’aime : une complexité exemplaire associée à une facilitée de boire incroyable. J’aimerais avoir accès à des bouteilles de cette bière 365 jours par année! Le côté sûrette et citronné est totalement balancé et n’est aucunement agressif. Le corps et l’impression en bouche sont si parfaits qu’il est prèsque difficile d’y porter attention : tout se concentre sur les saveurs! Ce n’est peut-être pas la plus rares des Cantillon, mais c’est malgré tout celle qui me plait le plus de cette brasserie jusqu’ici.

Chapeau... une très, très grande bière!

Bottle @ home. Pours with a bright orange beautiful colour, small white rocky head. Aroma is very rich in typical lambic aromas: very strong leather, basement aromas, some fruit in the background. Taste is slightly sweet, slightly bitter, medium sour. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation.

Bottle 37,5 cl from Cantillon, @ home. Although I am not an expert in gueuze I must admit this is good stuff!
