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.

UPDATED: MAR 6, 2010 2004 bottle sampled June 2009 to celebrate signing on our new home.

Sometimes when Im about two bolts into a lead climb I decide that Ive bitten off more than I can chew and I wonder why in the hell I go climbing in the first place and why anyone would do this one purpose and I wonder whether Im man enough to do it, let alone enjoy it....

The aroma of this one, tart and aggressive, funky and balsamic, makes me feel that way.

....and then I just let it flow and as Im lowering off the anchors, Ive got this happy glow.

Yet after the second sip Im loving it and Ive got that lowering off glow now as the deep, dry brett lays across my tongue and I look longingly at the empty glass.

Shared this one and both of us commented on how wonderfully crisp and dry it was. I also liked the tartness. The color was a little too dark and made me wonder if it was still fresh - but it was.

Off brown gold pour with foamy head and lace. Tart with brown sugar aroma that hints of fruit. Big tart dry flavor with a hint of fruitiness and funk. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. A very nice beer.

andersand (529) - Malm, SWEDEN - JUL 14, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2010 Very funk oriented mild gueuze though not without tasty grape and lemon notes. Packed with hay and barnyard notes and finishes leaving a yummy brett blancet on your tongue.

Flaske: Nu er jeg normalt ikke pjattet med for sure l, men denne sag blended i 2003 var outsstanding. Klar duft stald og funk. Flot orange klar l med et flot skumhoved. Smagen er til at begynde med en kende for sur, men vokser langsomt p dig. Virkelig positiv overrasket.

UPDATED: JUN 23, 2013 april 27, 2010 bottle consumed january 21, 2012. pours a clear golden orange with a quickly disappating foamy white head. aroma of dusty, fresh soft leather, rustic wet grass, pear skin, and a light doughy herbal note. taste is bright tangy red grapefruit and tangerine lemonzest. creamy sour yogurt with a touch of lemon zest. sourness. 7 out of 10 on the old dry scale. that classic drie fonteinen character that pops in some of the classic dre fonteinen beers is relatively subtle and young. 6-7 year old bottles of this seem to be the sweet spot. like quite a bit always, but if you catch a good batch at a good point in time, look the fuck out.

2001 bottle did quite a few reps. awesome cheese, dusty old cellar, leather funk. super good.

Drink4Satan (676) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 1, 2009
Pours out a translucent honey-orange colour with almost no head to speak of. The nose is extremely citric, with some suggestions of peach, and of course, that deliciously filthy barnyard funk, in all its tart, acetic, bretty glory. The flavour starts off with lemon rind, funky brett yeast and some super-sour and tart green apple. The finish is very salty with a lingering of barnyard/horse blanket dankness. White pepper and plenty of wood is present toward the finish. The mouthfeel is thin, crisp, and drying. The carbonation is appropriately prickly. The brightness from the one-year-old and the earthiness from the 3-year-old. Really intense, even for a gueuze!

Bottled on 1/17/06. Pours a hazy burnt orange with a prominent airy white head that steadily vanishes. Its beautiful; it glows! Aroma of green apples, champagne grapes, and a bit of lemon. Lots of tart and sour citrus flavors with a hint of hops. Its sort of hard to decipher any specific fruit. A dry and sour finish w/ some champagne grape flavor mixed in for the finale. The sourness lingers on the palate. This is a great spring, summer, or autumn beer.

Apricot pour with nice sticky white head. Nice fruity funk aroma. tart notes. peppery lemon spice. a bit of sweetness and a lot of tartness, especially at the finish. still retains some fruity characteristics though. not especially complex but has a great tart character and a nice smooth palate
