Blend of 1, 2, and 3 year old lambics.
A true Geuze - a blend of 1, 2, and 3 year-old lambic, unfiltered and unpasteurized, and aged in the bottle for at least a year after blending. Refermentation in the bottle gives this Geuze its famous champagne-like spritziness. The lambic that goes into it is brewed only with 60% barley malt, 40% unmalted wheat, aged hops, and water, spontaneously fermented by wild yeasts, and matured in oak casks.

mpersinger (336) - , California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
375 ml bottled on Nov 18, 2010, purchased from Ledger’s a few months ago. Cork was chueco, and ready to go. Citrusy floral volatile aroma gives way to oak, dried apricot and damp linens (a refined barn yard, if you will). There’s quite good clarity here, and color is golden with a brassy orange hue topped with half-inch plush, persistent white head of tightly-packed tiny to medium bubbles with rising columns, leaving some lacing. Medium body and perky effervescence support a flavor profile rich with some triple cream soft French cheese, tropical fruit and fruit punch around a core of dried cantaloupe and honey that is then punctuated by quite tart lactic and red fruit sour, followed by a sweet lull then a blooming finish of fresh grapefruit that dries and sweetens. Lemon meringue flavors emerge as it warms. (Seems like you can taste oak in the dregs.) Here’s to Lucky!

Salmoniform (269) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2014
Poured from 750 to glass. Orange straw hue with fizzy white head. Aroma is funk, salt, straw, lacto, Brett, farmhouse esters. Mouthfeel is fantastic with light body and great carbonation. Taste is dry throughout with sour following and acidic finish. Overall...fantastic what else can I say?

Douberd (1719) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2014
Bottle 375 ml, c&c, into a tulip, ABV 6% Deep golden orange colour on the body, tall white head, froathy, with low retention, leaving light lacing on the glass. Sour aroma, wood, cork, grassy old hops, a bit of funk. Very sour, some lemon, floral notes, very tasty. Medium thin body, high carbonation, moderate tartness on the palate. Overall really good.

Aroma is sour with some floral notes. Taste is a lemon sourness with some distinct wild yeast tastes. Lots of carbonation here. Thick lace head retains well.

oliodnb (147) - ITALY - APR 6, 2014
Beautiful light orange color, fluffy white head, very high carbonation. Sour smell with some yeast, some metallic notes and a very particular aroma that I cannot identify, not exactly good but definitely not bad. Sounds weird but there?s also some old cheese smell. Taste starts very acidic with a lot of lemon taste but with also a sour herbaceous note that reminds me of currant. Notes of wild yeast and damp wood. Slightly salty finish.

Raddler (22) - Lund, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2014
funky sour aroma, golden orange with a lot of carbonation, white head. Sourness not overwhelming with some nice funky character.

miquelcrush (131) - Granollers, SPAIN - APR 3, 2014
Cerveza muy ácida, en el primer sorbo da una sensación muy rara en la boca pero a medida que se va bebiendo va gustando mas y mas

Bouteille 375ml, 2012. Couleur jaune paille trouble, mousse blanche très effervescente et fuyante. Arôme de citron, acidité, brett, paille humide, un peu terreux. Goût de pomme verte subtile, brett, cuir, bonne acidité, sèche, légère amertume en fin de bouche. Carbonatation élevée, corps moyen. Superbe.

Renobob (453) - Besançon, FRANCE - MAR 25, 2014
J’ai découvert les gueuzes avec cette bière. Et je n’aime beaucoup les gueuzes en fait... L’acidité assez violente au palais est à peu près le seul souvenir qu’elle me laisse.
