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".

Had it from the source in Brussels, nothing better! Not overly sweet but not too bitter. Tartness is lemon in nature with a somewhat dry note. Mouthfeel is lively but not overdone. Very different beer but a must try.

World class yes, sour patch art lemon aroma. Great super dry champagne like palate. Taste of salty goaty cheesy funk. Ends of a super tart mango dry finish.

Slightly hazy dark golden. Small white head, sparkling. Acetic aroma, fruity and funky. Sour, acetic flavour. Lemon with a sharp sourness and a tart, bitter finish.

AtronSeige (966) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 12, 2015
Aroma: Medium sourness, barnyard, tart. Light spicy, peppery. Appearance: Slightly hazy gold body. Small, off-white head. Flavour: Medium-light sourness, light barnyard, tart. Well balanced. Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium-high carbonation. Overall: Good beer. Still not a style I want to drink many of, but definitely 375 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre! 17E. Gueuze

Vells (1003) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 11, 2015
Classy geuze! Bit acidic fruity - berry like sourness. Lovely lemon, mango, wood. Finishes more tart and quite dry. Enjoyable brew.

Bottled 1 Dec, 2014; drunk 10 July, 2015 at Känguruh in Vienna, Austria. 0.375l pour into Belgian challice. Pours a bright orange, moderately hazy, with no head to speak of. Nose is musty. Like a winter coat pulled out of the closet in August. Barnyard and dirt. Maybe even a hint of manure or moldy cheese. These don’t sound like good things, but strangely they work fairly well. Body is thin, crisp, and tart. Biting. Taste is intense. Starts out tart and gets tarter. Tastes like sour oranges, maybe sour cherry, some hay, and ends with a bit of dirt. Hard for me to describe accurately beyond intense. Complex. A beer made for sipping.

My favorite! This gueuze is special. And if you have the chance to taste it at Cantillon, in Brussels, the experience is even more magnificent.
