UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Bottle, 7%. Very nice earthy, citric aroma, smells like 3 Fonteinen. Hazy dark golden colour. Sparkling, leaving a small bubbly white head. High carbonation. The flavour is sweeter than expected, still nicely earthy. Good citric flavour, very well-rounded. Mild and pleasant. The carbonation is too high for me, the flavour gains a lot after the beer has been swirled around a bit. 8 3 9 3 20

traPISSED (102) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - MAY 25, 2010
Bottle 75cl at home. I was very excited to try a Geuze that contained so many base lambics and this one lived up to my expectations. The nose is very similar to the 3F Geuze. Very lively and fresh with plenty of Brett and funk. The sourness is there but its a great balance and compliments the beer. I hope that this is made again! My favourite Geuze so far.

Pours out gold with lots of bubbles. Smells sour and somewhat funky. Flavor is quite tart with some mild funkyness. Great citrus and sour fruit flavors. Not sweet, nice dry mellow finish. A great Geuze.

joet (2158) - Santa Rosa, California, USA - JUN 5, 2014
UPDATED: JUN 29, 2014 Golden with transient white foam, slightly hazy. Dried hay, earth, rustic aromas. Lemon and grapefruit. Soft acidity. Really opens up with increasing temperature. Very full aroma. Some woody character. Light astringency perhaps related to tannins. Dry, refreshing, drinkable. Finishes lightly sour. This is an amazing blend. In an evening of many other top notch beers, this was a great standout.

rbrazell (1629) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2014
Bottle at Edmunds Oast. Clear deep golden pour with a fluffy white head. This is seriously one of the biggest noses one a Geuze I’ve ever smelled, huge skunky, hay, blue cheese, sweaty aroma with lemon peels and tart citrus. Flavor is deliciously funk forward and complex with layers of yeast character and earth with tart citrus peels. Dry sour finish. SO FUCKING GOOD.

Geuzelambix (243) - København, DENMARK - APR 13, 2011
Seriously this is one of the best beer I’ve ever had. It was of course acidic but also rather flowery with wonderful sweet notes. Had it on a small street bar in Brussels and hated myself for not buying these cheap when I had the chance. Dear Pierre - thank you for selling this to us.

Marheb (2002) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
Un assemblage alléchant et complexe qui laisse briller des notes de chlorophylle, carambole, citron, foin et levure. Magistrale élégance.

Timvim (76) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2014
2013, Bottle #25189 @ home 20140708. Cloudy straw colored liquid, dense compact white head with excellent head retention (there is still head after 15 minutes in the glass). Light, a bit vinous aroma with funk, apples, cherries. Taste is very complex yet perfectly well balanced with funk, grain, oak, green apples, vanilla, cherries, green grapes. Medium, refreshing lactic and citric sourness. A tannin twang, perhaps a tiny bit too much. Wow.
