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.

KM (416) - Troms, NORWAY - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle. Yellow unclear body. Huge fluffy white head. Sourish aroma, a particular sweetness that is hard to describe. Very sour flavour, after a little while a strange maltiness. Long sour finish, like champagne. A litte too sour. (At home, 010709)

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2011 At the sour tasting, thanks Lee, pours hazy yellow to orange with a nice head that leaves a nice lacing, aroma of sulfur, horse skin, saltiness, pop-corn, seaweeds, cocoa and some shit, flavor is acidic with some herby hops, fresh leaves, lemon skin, ether, pleasant dryness, extremely refreshing, full bodied, amazing. 9/4/9/5/17[4.4] 2008 bottle, orange with a nice soapy head that diminish quickly, "wet" aroma, some olives, grapes and lemons can be sensed (very pleasant), dry and sour flavor, zesty on the tongue with almost no sweetness, delicate vinous notes with some lemon and hay, low bitterness towards the end. Full bodied. Great stuff 8/4/8/5/15[4.0]

Kestral (506) - rnes, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange, sparkly and fizzy tan head that dissipates quickly to a ring. Aroma and flavour is heavy on wood, quite fruity, with notes of sour lemon, earth, bread, yeast, and loads of cheese like funk. A refreshing and drinkable sour. Body is light, carbonation is prickly, but fittingly so.

CheersMate (1342) - Portland (Sellhood), Oregon, USA - OCT 8, 2009
750 ml bottle picked up from Greens Liquor store in Atlanta. This is a bottle from February 02, 2007. I think this is my first lambic - gueuze. Smells a wee bit like some charred wood, with some funky fruit. Yeast aroma is pungent. This is a very nice nuanced pungent beer. Slight bread, and little sour as well. Very nice nuanced aroma. Nice fluffy head that fades away only slightly. Nice haze dark orange color. Funky sour flavor with some yeast. Nice flavor is you ask me. I am just starting to like the sour-type beers. Slight charred wood flavor in there as well. For $20 it is a little expensive, but having it aged 2 years without having to do it myself is ok with me. Overall, pretty damn good beer.

375 ml bottle - February 2006 bottling; cloudy, straw gold; aromas of funky cheese, lemons, barnyard funk and fruit; texture is soft and delightful; mild flavors across the palate that arent as harsh as the nose would suggest; tasty, soft, smooth, subtle and yummy
