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".

Bottle provided by Baron whilst watching football. Thanks for bringing the Loons bro, I love drinking dis shit. 2011 vintage poured into a New Belgium tulip. Poured a golden brown in color with about a fingers worth of tight white head. It’s hazy in clarity. Nose is comprised of lemon and a ton of dirty funk. It’s surprisingly funky for this stage in its development. There is must, horse blanket, wet hay, and some cat piss. Flavor is less funk focused, there is still some sweetness accompanied by the lemon rind. There is some funk on the finish, but not a bunch. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation is low, gentle acidity, and a moderate finish. I love Classic Gueuze/Gueuze BIO/etc., so I always think its a treat to have. I prefer 3F Oude Gueuze in terms of standard gueuzes, but this is probably a close second. Thanks for bringing this Baron.

Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with a short head diminishing immediately to a thin skim, no lacing. Nose is slight barnyard funk, woody notes, apple and citrus. Taste is tart and sour, funk, and citrus. Medium body and low but sustained carbonation, puckering and dry finish. Bloody marvellous. Tangy and tart, with a pleasant funk. The standard by which gueuze is measured, and with good reason. I don’t see how this can be given anything but full marks.

MrJoller (55) - ITALY - AUG 16, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Pale orange pour with a little bit of a very fast vanishing head, aroma is a strong winey character less present at taste, taste is sour, acidic, funk/barnyard and citrus. Paired alongside some sushi and some italian prosciutto and pancetta. Other one tasting with me said it’s better with sushi. Complex, rich, mouthfeel is really pleasurable, strong barnyard character, incredible.

First of this style. Outstanding flavor. Makes me want to go to Belgium. Sour and almost dirty sock flavor that combines for a perfect beer.

JBPortland (747) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 10, 2014
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 (619) - 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

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!
