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.

Bottle shared at Where the Wild Beers Are NYC 2009. The aroma is barnyard, a little tart lemon in the background. Very nice! The appearance is an ornage/yellow, white head. The flavor is earthy, leather, lemons, other tart and sour fruits. The finish is a tart lemon, like a sour lemon drop. Beautiful. A classic beer.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 2, 2009
Bottled Feb. 01, 2008, good for at least ten years. Pours after the pop of the champagne cork with a mostly clear, gold color, lots of effervescence, and a head which is mostly full, fluffy, foamy, white, fully lasting and leaves some frothy lace at the bottom of the glass. Nose is typical oude with a lot of earthy, tart, funkiness going on; tartness is lemons and lime peel, tannic and wet oak notes, horse blanket, wet earth, mushrooms, even some sharp cheese notes. Flavor is still young with more tartness and sour notes than expected; puckering sour lemon notes dominating with also wet oak (almost cork-like), faint horse blanket, light sour apple, very tannic, bread yeast, and some drying bitterness into the finish. Palate is puckering, fizzy, light to medium, dry finishing, and refreshing. Finishes very dry, still sour with lemons, wet wood, and some earth and faint sharp cheese on the tongue. Still somewhat of a hard style for me to rate with so many differences from most beers I am used to drinking. However, it is a dying style that is refreshing change from the norm. This one was a bit more sour than I normally like but the nose was more than complex and I did find myself drinking it very easily. Still a marvel in brewing.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 29, 2009
The pour was pale yellow and slightly hazy. The head was white, fizzy and active. The aroma was tart citrus with light funk. The flavor is citrus, mild funk, some cheese and a bit of wood or oak. Thin body, refreshing to drink. Not bad.

Bottle shared with savvy1982... Thanks Kyle! Pours a bright yellow with a large white head. Aroma is earthy and tart. Mushrooms, earth, lemons, oak, and horse blanket. Tastes very similar. Palate is very nice. Simple, biting, abrasive, enjoyable. Just not as complex as I would like.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 23, 2009
Bottle, shared with hobbersr and macadem. Pours hazy gold, with an incredibly persistent thin white head, lovely lacing. Aroma is very earthy, dead leaves and the dirty ground, oak acid, funk, mushrooms. And yet it has a bright sunshine and lemon/grapefruit side to it as well. Piercingly dry and austere in the mouth, quite sour for a gueuze. Still very earthy, plenty of acid and tannin, mild oak, a shade simple, especially in the mouth, but nonetheless, an excellent gueuze.

2007 bottle, shared with Narnad. Red-orange, hazy, with a small white head. Aroma: some soft cheeses, sourdough, yeast. Flavor full of grapefruit and grapefruit rind - very, deliciously tart. Cakey finish. Delicious on a hot day.
