COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"For Akkurats (Stockholm/Sweden) fifteenth anniversary, Jean Van Roy has made a very special Gueuze. It is a blend of one, two, and three year old lambic and was bottled in April of 2005. It has then been fermented and matured for five years in the deep caveaus of Cantillon. 15 years is the minimum age for driving a moped in Sweden, which is why we are choosing the name, Gueuze Vélomoteur."

Bottle @ Akkurat. A great gueuze with the high quality of Cantillon. The funk, barnyard and dry, dirty countryside is all there but apart from the aging it has little that adds to either complexity or taste.

gn0sis (52) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Tasted at Akkurat with Joe in 2012... A special bottling for moto subculture. Tasty, cheesy, funky and plenty of character, though nothing specifically sets it apart from a normal Geuze of this age. Extremely tasty but seemilngly underwhelming while tasting the Reed Geuzes and Goldackerl, et al. A solid oude gueuze and a cool bottling to try in Stockholm.

75cl bottle at Akkurat. 2005 cork. It pours a golden/light amber colour with a large white head. Aroma is wood, funky with fruitiness and some spices. Some cheesey and horseblankety notes. Taste is rich with funk again and tartness sorrounded by a sort of yogurt-like sweetness. Citrus and lemon peel notes. Some wood too. Mostly dry finish. Palate is silky, with good carbonation. So easy to drink, I’m glad I had a whole bottle for myself. This is a bit too young maybe, not on par with some older geuzes I’ve tried.

Dunt (283) - Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle at Akkurat. Pours a dark yellow/light orange in color with a fingers worth of quickly dissipating white head. Nose is still incredibly bright lemon despite being in bottles for 8 years. There is a good amount of accompanying stone fruit as well in addition to the barnyard funk, horse blanket, and all around mustiness of typical Cantillon. Taste mirrors the nose, bright citric character with just the right amount of backing funk. The stone fruit is a little more prominent in the flavor. We paired it with a peach dessert they offered and the flavors were explosive together. Light mouthfeel, spritzy carbonation, restrained acidity, and a moderate finish. Nice gueuze and a pleasure to try. Probably some better options here but a nice experience nonetheless.

ChinoSkillzian (160) - The Hills, California, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle from the source. Pours an ethereal hazy golden yellow. Nose of lemon peel, faint oak, citrus, and acidic funk. Fresh palate of lemon, lime, tart green apple, with hints of musty oak and nice, lively carbonation. Finish is nicely pure and drying, memorable but not lasting, with notable acidity. Overall a pure expression of raw Gueuze characteristics.
