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".

Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to Momar42 for all three gueuzes (and the kriek surprise afterwards!) This was part of the gueuze showdown, pitting Tilquin’s gueuze against the juggernaut duo known as Cantillon Gueuze and Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze. Part of a 750mL bottle poured into a Cantillon tulip. Notes from last night’s Skins/Cowboys game. A: Pours a hazy golden color. The head is a half finger white color with poor retention. S: This one had the most balanced hybrid between winy fruit tartness and earthy funk. A very expressive aroma, and the best one of the three (by a small margin). T: Acetic sourness comes on the palate fast and hard, and then afterwards cheesy, earthy funk...finishes the flavor profile fast and hard. This was the boldest and most complex of the three, yet it wasn’t that much harsher than the 3F (certainly it was somehow more subtle than Tilquin’s offering). Shockingly easy to drink for me. M: The finish is the ’dirtiest’ and most tannic of the three, closing the palate with big dryness, yet minimal harshness. This one is actually pretty thick in its texture, accentuating a fuller level of carbonation than the 3F Oude Geuze. O: This was the winner in my book - but I wouldn’t dare recommend this one to beginners. There is a sense of subtle delicacy to it; however the bigness of the acetic sourness, wet hay, and cheesy funk WILL scare off the average Fat Tire drinker the way a celery stalk scares off a fat kid. And moreso than the other two gueuzes, in fact. To those acclimated to the style’s idiosyncrasies, this one’s hard to beat.

Pours a deep golden colour, with a small head that fades soon, leavinga good lace. Aroma of grapefruits, apple, citrus, cider. Creamy palatae, normal carbonation. TAste is the same as aroma; apples, grapefruits, cider.

rumproasts (4828) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Tap at Logan’s. Golden with one finger head. Can’t say I’ve had anything quite like this. Lemony vinegar funk. Light white grape. Very good, but I had crazy expectations for this.

andrei79 (25) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 15, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2016 Remembered as more impressive. This time it was raw but subdued. Little carbonification, (un)noticeable from pulling out the cork. Taste like faded citrus fruit and peel, a little funk that lingers in the after taste with a bitter sensation. Bottled 23.11.15. Lot: DN Temp 5C. Bought at brewery.

Rugamu (132) - SPAIN - JUN 12, 2016
Cerveza lambica que me sorprendió muy gratamente por su buen paso en boca, suave y sabroso sin el punto ácido que suelen tener las cervezas de fermentación expontanea. Puedo repetir de esta cerveza sin problemas por el sabor tan bueno que tiene, que no carga.

Ataraxia (473) - Massachusetts, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Light golden color, white lacing. Muted aroma of funk, lemon, and musk. Taste is more bitter than tart or funky. Light body, moderate carb, and a rather abrupt finish.

Fint pissgult och underbart! Grumlig, benvitt huve! Naturliga bubblor! Doft av gröna äpplen, hö, vinäger, citrus & nystädad allmän toalett! Riktigt bra syra i smaken, doften går igenom i smaken & men lämnar eftersom sig en liten bitterhet från en äpplestjärna :D ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smashing. Smells like aging Roquefort in a cave with dripping ceilings. Dank funky awesome. The intensity of the long finish lingers
