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: APR 5, 2011 75cl bottle at home vintage 2008. A great gueuze, one of the best. Aroma is Brett and hay. Taste is Brett and lemon and lime. This or cantillon? Tough call, ill have both please! Cantillon is cheaper though. 75cl bottle at home vintage 1999. Thanks Anker!!! Got this in a trade and I decided to open it during the worst winter storm I have ever experienced! It was -14 outside with a snow blizzard and thunder/lightning over my house all at the same time. Oj83 managed to get up to my house through the snow so I decided to pop open the 1999. This was still very highly carbonated with an appearance like a good champagne. The aroma was of lemon and lime with a hefty dose of blue cheese. The flavour was exceptionally balanced with the mushroom/blue cheese working well with the citrus profile. The mouthfeel is excellent with the spritzy carbonation making this geuze very refreshing. Thanks again Anker, an epic beer for an epic storm!

Bottle. Poured a hazy gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of tart fruits with a bit of a peppery note. Flavor was similar that grew with sour and tart fruit notes throughout that led to quite a dry finish. Really enjoyed this and it is a very good example of the style.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2010 Pours a light golden color with minimal head. Smells of strong earth, funky basement, and a soft sweet fruitiness to it. Tastes very tart on the palate. There are other flavors of tart fruit like apples and pears along with a nice earthiness that adds good complexity. Long dry finish hangs on the lips.

First true lambic. Excellent yeasty, musky, and sour aroma. Mild carbonation. Distinct flavors (in a good way). Smooth finish. Looking forward to my next lambic.

Brilliant light amber with no head. A hint of sweetness at the start, then turns a mellow funky orange sour.
