COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

ansalon (4302) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2018
Pours dusky orange with a medium frothy white head. Aromas of cellar, farmhouse, garden branch, ripe apple, green grapes. Taste is wonderful: earthy, rich, aromatic with a nice depth of autumn leaves and umami notes along with some fruit and grape tones. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

MatChar (125) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2018
Bottle (17-03-2016). Appearance: almost clear, light orange with some yellow reflections, awesome white thick foam with good retention, medium to high carbonation. Smell: lemon, green apple, smooth oak. Taste: notes of white grapes, lemon, apple cider and some smooth grain/cereals, incredibly well balanced oak aromas, great complex wild yeasts aromas, low to medium sourness, great dryness and low sugar, with awesome texture and feel. Overall: high quality, high complexity, yet juicy and quite drinkable geuze, some of the most balanced used of oak aromas, a personal favourite, highly recommended (even quite young).

Juks (1267) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2018
750ml bottles compared 2016 and 2017. Pours clear golden (2017 is little bit more cloudier, darker) white head stays. Aroma is bit dusty, whitecurrant, husky, dried apple chips, nutty. 2017 is more funky. Taste is more fruity in 2016, more complex. Ripe apples, apple vinegar, woody. Medium body, 2017 carbo is more livley. 2016 is really complex and well balanced. I'm not sure if it's from ageing or 2016 is much better.

guzgorog (991) - FRANCE - FEB 5, 2018
Robe orangée trouble, mousse ivoire, à léger cratère, de très bonne tenue, surtout pour une gueuze ! Nez boisé, acide, cidre, raisin blanc, mais boisé surtout. Bouche complexe, attaque acide avec des notes de citron et de raisin, levures sauvages, puis les notes boisés dominent, avec des touches de grain. Superbe carbo, avec une belle pétillance fine, bonne longueur, acidité agréable. Superbe gueuze travaillée et complexe, avec du caractère, qui reste malgré tout assez facile à boire par rapport à certaines de ses cousines !

sharkydodson (1988) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - FEB 2, 2018
the aroma of fruits and berries with shades of apple vinegar, dry wine and some herbs... the taste is fruity and winy with notes of sour citrus, berries, sour milk, yeast and some spicy grasses... sour, tart and dry aftertaste...

TomHendriksen (1074) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 1, 2018
Fles gedeeld met Roelzie1986. Het is een oranje geel bier met een medium schuimkraag. Het heeft een frisse zurige geur. De smaak is zuur en droog. Het heeft een mondgevoel van champagne.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2018 Fles 37,5cl thuis. Errug zuur. Prima te drinken. Wat nadrukkelijker dan de echte gueuzetoppers. (11-2007)
