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".

’11 bottle -Pours golden w/light carbonation, decent amount of haze. Pineapple, bandaids, lemon peel and oaky must on the nose - big typical lacto/pedio sour tinge, touch of vinegar, too. Taste is very balanced, not mouth puckering, but really round. Tart hints of apple cider vinegar, lemon and ripe pineapple. Delicious...

At the brewery following the tour. Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head. Aroma of pear, apple, sourness, and mildy funky basement. Taste was lightly sour and fruity with a nice little bite to it. Body felt pretty light and it was easy to drink with a dry finish. Well done.

Bottle of 75cl. TEH Gueuze ! One of the greatest btw. Superbe taste of lambic, improved with the little sour, yeasted aroma. Nice and sweet palate. Try it with two sugars. Beware of the ascending head :)

Tart and funky, hazy and delicious. A sweetness to the aroma and the tart is pretty subdued. A bit of funk on the finish, but real nice.

Yeasty start, then sour, citrous and acidic. Not lot of body. Overall a good lambic.

GlasgowTAD (77) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2014
Golden and bears a great resemblance to apple juice in the looks department. Short lasting head. Smell is lemon/lime. Taste is tart, sour and lime. Had this on tap at Moeder Lambic and much prefer it to bottled version; as it is not as harsh and pretty easy to drink.

neongolden (477) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
(On tap at barVolo for Zwanze Day 2014, Sept 20 2014) Pours lightly hazed gold with a medium white head, lace. Aroma of sour pear, slightly rotten fruit, earth and light wood, funny salty buttered lobster aroma (!) over top, a little vinegar. Palate has loads of vinegar, lemon, crabapple, Brett barnyard, herbs restrained but lots of wood from mid-palate on, a bit of old bittering hop medicinal dryness. Lingering acetic acid. Actually rather funky throughout. Medium body with high active carb. I feel like this is one of the most acidic, earthy and funky of the Cantillon beers. There is a ton going on but it’s not as soothing and perfectly integrated as some of the others.

markschiedon (228) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2014
Drinking from tab at Borefts festival 2014. The aroma is like sniffing a glass with champaign. The unclear golden-orange beer has a small white head. The taste is mainly sour. Some bitter underneath. Medium carbonated.

Bottle version. Sour apple nose. Lime tart flavor, vinegar, dry sour finish. A quite well-rounded gueuze, pretty silky and accessible.
