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: 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.

Baltimorioles (40) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2010
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.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2010
Bottle 2-1-08. Aroma has notes of sour funk, lemon citrus, wood, flowers, dough and cobwebs. Good nose. Medium/dark orange hue with an average sized foamy head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is sweet and heavy sour tartness. Palate is medium bodied and lively with an astringent sour finish that burns all the way down. Overall a really good brew that had a terrific mouth feel. Great stuff.

GodOfThunder (1271) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2010
2005 vintage, thanks to cmillward. Pours flat and light bronze. Dusty aroma of socks, lemons and bitter lemon peel. Flavor reminds me of eating a lemon seed on accident. Bitter as hell with a musty finish. Great!

4.2
brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 15, 2010
A: The cork almost popped out of the bottle as soon as I loosened the cage. The pour is a light orange color with a massive, pillowy white head that sticks around forever. S: Tons of bright acidity and a wonderful "greenness" to the beer. Lots of lemon, green apple, grapes, grass, and wet hay. T: This one picks up where the nose leaves off. Lemon and green apple sourness are intense up front and an earthy funk and oak tannin quality on the back end. M: The body is medium with a lot of carbonation, maybe a bit too much. A nice dry and crisp finish. D: It’s too bad these guys won’t be brewing anymore, but I’m glad they’ll still be blending and giving us some great gueuzes.

peteinSD (1468) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 14, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Hazy straw yellow and gold in the glass. Quickly fading head; steady carbonation. Tart. lemon, funk, sour in the aroma. Oak, lemon pucker sour, funky tartness, and a lingering almost white wine note in the taste. Each sip produces a slightly different level of funk and sour - excellent beer. (7/10 rating of 8/3/9/4/18) September ’12 opening of a 4/27/10 bottle. Clear, golden yellow pour with a froth of white foam. Aroma is lemon, tart, hay, cheese funk, light sour, and grain. Taste is quenching tart and sour with lemon and funk intermixed with grain, pepper and an intense tart dryness through the finish. Dry, clean mouthfeel. Excellent with much more complexity than most, but not all, Cantillon Classic Gueuze I’ve enjoyed. Bump the score to 4.3
