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."

Marsiblursi (3028) - Göteborg, - 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.

tom10101 (3104) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2014
Bottle (750 ml) @ Akkurat. Hazy golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is heavier than usual Cantillon gueuze with grass, mushrooms, nice funk, dusty notes light minty notes and hints of citrus/lemon. Taste is also a bit heavier with moderate acidity, grass, funk, minty notes, oak and dust. Light/medium body, but mouthfeel is full. Medium carbonation. Dry and oaky finish. Nice gueuze. Not the most drinkable, but very tasty. Good balance. It suffered from the comparison with old 3F gueuzes (1999, 2002) that we had the same day though.

Review from notes. Bottle from Akkurat.

Pours golden yellow, white thin ring, wisps. Nose is musty oak, citrus, some funk, light sweetness. Flavor is citrus, oak, tartness, grassy notes. Light body, dry tart finish.

A wonderfully aged Gueuze that I’m super-happy I was finally able to try. Hopefully there’s a full bottle with my name on it when I visit Akkurat in the future.

ansalon (1624) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle at Akkurat. Pours a somewhat muddy peach with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of funk, citrus, farmhouse, soil, elderflower, slight metallic notes, and oaky mustiness. Taste is funk, citrus, sour peach, farmhouse, honey, musky notes and towards the end slight mushroom, and umami notes almost. Mouthfeel is somewhat sprightly with medium carbonation and a dry sparkling finish. Fantastic!

JulienHuxley (3482) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2014
Bottle at Akkurat. Slightly hazy gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is really nice, super dusty, grassy, leafy notes, light mushroomy aromas, a hint of rosemary or something herbal of the sort. Taste is fairly acidic, sharp lemony notes, dusty, grassy farmyard funk. Palate is light, bone dry, with light prickly carb. As far as aged Cantillon gueuze goes this is really tasty but I still think it is far from Drie fonteinen for this.

Taste is medium tart citrus and apples, light dry wood and medium funky barnyard notes. Finish is light to medium tart citrus and green apples, earthy and light dry wood. Medium bodied, very smooth, dry woody.

manker (50) - SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
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 (53) - 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.
