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."

spdyfire83 (32) - 5280, Colorado, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Hazy, dull hay. 1.5+ (bubbly white) fingernail head on medium pour. Smells of lemon zest, old musty hay, barnyard funk, and touch of unripe fruit. Crisp and refreshing from the start. Distinct citrus sharpness is present all throughout - not overpowering, but balanced by barnyard must, touch of oak, and dry dustiness. Very refreshing!

Marsiblursi (2993) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2012
(Bottle) Pours hazy golden with a medium sized, off-white bead. The aroma is mega funky with notes of horse blanket, mouldy basement and barnyard brett up front alongside clear lacto notes. Also boat loads of citrus (grapefruit and lemon), elder, sweaty cheese, phenols (smoked meat) and subtle spices. Touch of pineapple. The flavour is dry, medium to heavily acidic and tiny bitter with notes of brett, lacto, citrus, cheese, wheat, white bread and phenols. The mouthfeel is soft and tart with a light to medium carbonation. Citric, funky and wheaty finish. Light to medium bodied.

omhper (19216) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 4, 2011
Bottled at Akkurat. Stockholm. Hazy golden, brief lively head. Citric nose with plenty of barnyard. Acidic with lots of juicy lemon. Fairly light bodied with spritzy mouthfeel. Citric acid is prominent, mild salty bitterness. Alive and refreshing. Very elegant.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 2, 2011
Bottle at Akkurat. Bright golden color, medium white head. Aroma of dusty pink grapefruit with some floral notes. Sourness is much softer than the usual Cantillon, with grapefruit, apple and wet socks. Very easy to drink.

MrChopin (3220) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Hazy gold, wispy white head that becomes a thin ring. Nose is dusty and peppery, light peach and citrus before brett dominates, bit eggy. Flavor is more Cantillon brett-forward lambic, funky with heavy citrus and light peach, some pineapple emerging amid the stinging carbonation that accompanies the leathery finish. Very pleasant and nicely complex, though brett-harsh and somewhat all over the place.

Bottle @ Akkurat. Hazy, dark golden appearance with a tan head. Funky, cheesy, rich lemon, very sour, tangy, complex nose. Richly tangy, big lemon, a touch oaky, refreshing, very rich sour, somewhat funky flavor. Nice brew.
