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".

Cork and cap bottle. Poured cloudy orange color with a minimal fizzy head that diminihed quickly with fair lacing. Heavy fruity and sour citrus aroma. Medium to full body with a dry texture. Heavy tart sour flavor with a medium bitter finish of long duration. This is a standout beer for a select few.

Christian (11893) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2007
Yellow, lasting bubbly white head. Nice geuze aroma of leather, wood, barnyard, hint of malt. Classic Cantillon house flavour, best described as grapefruit peel in a leather cover. The definitive Cantillon, and I love it.

My first gueuze!. Nice aroma acetic and sweet. OK apperance, not much head, but then again is there supposed to be? Special taste, but I like it. A bit lactoacid.

Bottle Conditioned at The Oude Arsenaal, Antwerpen. Gold colour with thin head. Challenging lemon acidic tart lambic with a deep fruity flavour. A smashing beer.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2013 25.4oz bottle-pours a thin white head and yellow color. Aroma is first grassy, then overwhelming moldy cheese, barnyard-I smell the cows, then Joe read the label! After warming: grassy, overwhelming moldy cheese, barnyard, light fruit, yeast. Taste is citric acid-lemon, green apple, then tart/sour and sweet, vinegar. Vinegar overrides all else. Probably a great beer to some tastes, not mine. Thanks jwc215 for sharing. 1.8 *121201-750ml bottle @RLRL-thin white-hazy gold. A-funk, lt malt, brett. T-tart/acidic, lt malt, fruit, funk. Sipping. 4.0 ****************130817-16 yr old 750 bottle-thanks Skyview @RBSG-Minni

thewolf (11590) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 24, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2007 Bottle, from Kolding Vinhandel. Bio. Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a fine medium white head. Flavour is a little underwhelming, sour berries and vinegar. Flavour is fresh and quite tart. Sour and fruity. This lambic feels up my mouth nicely. Fresh and lively, but very much a lambic in the oldfashioned sense.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2013 375ml bottle. (7:3:8:4:15=3.7)
Sharp as a geuze should be. Fills the mouth, tingles. Leaves sharpness, sweetness and light berry hints after (long after) swallowing.
Rerate: What was I thinking? This is sharp and crisp and beautiful. Classic geuze. Adjusted numbers accordingly.
Rerate: 375ml bottle (8+:5-:8:5-:17+=4.3-) Bottled 14Mar2012 One of the best ever. Great balance - beautiful sharpness, but also beautifully mellow - a lovely shiver down the spine on swallowing. This is the world’s best gueuze, of that I’m sure.

375 ml green corked and capped bottle 2006 poured a clear gold with a lingering ring of off white foam. Aromas of sour citrus, horseblanket, light leather and a hint of vinegar. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a tart dry finish. Flavors of unsweetened white grapefruit, light leather and light funky barnyard with a crisp dry lingering tart finish.
