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.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - JUN 29, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2011 Hazy apricot pour with small white head that dissipates slowly, leaving nice lacing behind it. Aroma is tart; lemon and some grapefruit notes combine with fermented apple and funk. Flavor is quite tart and sour, having notes of cider, and fermented berries. Palate is smooth and caressing with pillow like carbonation leaving a very dry finish. After having a 1998-2002 vertical, I must up my rating significantly... The 4.8 rating is for the 1999 vintage specifically.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2010 Pours a hazy peach with a white head. Aroma holds fruity nectars, but in a definitely funky way. Flavor is also full of funk and fruit, with a long lasting and full flavor. Palate is impressive; massages the tongue with the tart fruity notes, but doesnt overpower it as some lesser lambics do. Very nice brew. Re-rate 11/16/10-- 2008 bottle. Wondrous dark, musty funk in both the aroma and flavor, though the nose is particularly delightful. Excellent stuff

Bottle at The Rover, Gteborg, shared with Gnoff and friends. pours hazy golden, white head. Aroma and taste, plenty of tartness with hints of fruits, lingering sweetness quickly overwhelmed by a sea of tartness.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - JUN 26, 2009
Slightly hazy, golden pour with a big, frothy, white head. The aroma is oaky white grapes with notes of black pepper, bright citrus, honey, grass and brett. Sour white grape flavor with hints of lemon, pepper, wheat, and oak. Medium body with lots of effervescent carbonation and a dry tart finish.

Ibrew2or3 (8358) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2009
This 2004 vintage pours copper with micro thin white head. The aroma is apples, other varied fruity sweetness and a tart Brett like quality. The taste is thin on the mouth with brief fruitiness, too brief to really discern what sort of fruitiness it was, before a solid load of tartness takes this to the finish. Not much else going on.

gunnar (8431) - Sandnes, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2009
Bottle375 ml.Pours murky yellow/orange with a good 3 " frothy white head. Citrus and vinegar aroma. Flavour is first off all a fizzy sour cacophony, green apples and citrus. Not the last for me!

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 22, 2009
Bottled 375ml. Ordered from crackedkettle.com. It pours a murky milky orange beer with a fizzy white head. Burnt match, algae, rhubarb and horse blanket showing up in both nose and taste. Lively carbonation. Decent sourness. Good lacework. Nice.

KnutAlbert (6740) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2009
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Bread, grapes, vineager and cider aroma fills the room. Citrus is the dominating element on the palate - clean crisp lemon juice. Some grapefruit, no sign of the malt involved. Funky dry tail. A very welcome addition to the Norwegian market.

gerome (21) - FRANCE - JUN 19, 2009
A yellowish orange appearance. A funky aroma consisting of cheese, mold, lemons, and vinegar. The flavor was lemon, hay, salt, vinegar, cheese, and orange peel. It was very complex and funkdified. Overall it was a great one

Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2009
Bottle 37.5cl. Pours a murky yellow/orange colour with a good size head and loads of carbonation. Smell is rather absent, can smell the sourness there but the rest is hard to detect. Taste is very sour, but just right, nice mixture of apples and oranges in the flavour there too and has a nice little bite at the end when going down. Good gueuze!
