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".

This one is an old time classic and I have enyoed it soo many times. I have always avoided serving it to new comers to the lambic world cause I always have thought that it was a pretty agressive gueuze. Appearently I have never rated it - but here goes. 37 cl bottle from Ølbutikken (also availeble rather cheap at Ørsted Ølbar if you want it a night out) Corked and caped like always with Cantillons - pretty cool. Served in the small fluty cantillon glass. Pours a fizzy and sparkling hay yellow with a rather thick foamy crown. The nose is some how artificial. Cleaning spirits and soap long with some urinals, vinegar and sour green apples - I love it ;-). The taste is goo plane sour with a low key finish where the bitter- and sourness gets softened by some sweetness. I find this as I said rather agressive and actually unbalanced compared to other gueuzes. That doesn’t change the fact that I really like this beer - its powerfull with a temper and it freshens you up way better than 10 Red Bulls. Grapefruits with a tiny layer of sugar is the impression I get when drinking it. Nice. The palate is medium to light with a low oily feeling,

french tickler (649) - Aylmer, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 20, 2008
Cloudy golden poor with a tiny head that quickly fades. Aromas of apple cider, rhubarb, unripped bananas, white wine, alcohol and herbal hops. Acid, sour, salty... Great balance and a lighter lambic compared to its other brews. Added flavors of light white wine, rhubarb and sour apples.

Majek (648) - Ząbki, POLAND - JUN 5, 2015
Hazy, straw color and small head. Medium intensive aroma of sourness, acid apple, wheat and horse blanket. Taste is minimal sweet, medium to heavy sour and medium to heavy dry. High carbonation. Medium body. Very refreshing, sour and well balanced gueze. Very good stuff.

Bottle, thanks Sersdf. Cloudy honey colored pour with a thin white head. Yeasty, spicy, bready aroma with citrus-pith like notes. Flavor is pretty much all sour and bitterness. Tastes like under-ripe grapefruit with a little less tartness. Really, really interesting. Subtle complexity. Fresh on the palate. I don’t know anything, really, about the style or the brewery, but I’m intrigued. This is definitely a style I’m interested in exploring more.

slightly opaque orangish yellow. nice fluffy white head with great retention. outstanding lacing. very tart nose. unripe peaches, a nice vinegar aroma, but subtle, some grape notes. almost chardonnay like. lemons and some spun sugar. absolutely outstanding...like biting into a key lime. very tart, but sweet at the same time.

Metalhead (643) - Lake Zurich, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2005
Aroma of sour apples,mild vinigar,hint of old well used horse blanket. Puckering and mildly mouthwatering initial taste that was semi sour but quickly turned drier than I would have liked. 375ml,cork date 2002. Not bad but would have expected more for my $6.

At the brewery, bottle to glass. Golden yellow with a thick white foamy head, gliding bubbles of different sizes. Smells like a muscat but not fruity, with cobwebs of dusty brett on the sides. Acid in the flavor is like proseco and almost as dry. The middle is like Munster cheese, kind of chewy. Finish is long and slightly bitter, dry, with Brett strong on the back of the tongue. All of the flavors are distinct and each has definition, yet the whole works well as a conglomeration; nothing gets shadowed by another part. Great beer.

pours a non carbonated clear yellow gold with flat head. very strong bret sour tart aroma. First sip impression is the mild nature behind the strong aroma. very mildly complex, the tartnes and sourness comes more in the second and third sips. gets better the more you approach it, a great compliment to a good cheese plate.

Hazy orange body with a minimal white head. It’s useless to describe how it is, everybody on this site should know this beer. A must!
