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: MAY 27, 2015 Bottle. Last beer of the night, still made its mark. Great flavor, sour after taste that lasts. Need to get my hands on one bottle and try aging this. 3.8 04 vintage. Golden pour ... looks a gueuze, smells like a gueuze, and tastes still like a gueuze definitely gets better with time. 4.1

Bottle shared. Poured claoudy orange with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of pepper & spice, wood tannins, sour/tart fruit & lemon. Taste is simialrly tart with lots of oak, fruit, spice. Flavor has some extra sour candy flavors to it. Body is dry and light. Finish is tart. Overall, a very nice, complex, and refreshing lambic.

Rune (11641) - Troms, NORWAY - JUN 7, 2009
Available at Vinmonopolet in Norway. I bought two 375ml bottles for an educational experience. Dark green bottle topped by a wire cradle and a cork. Opens with a sharp shot followed by smoke. Rocky and noisy white head. Golden-brown body. Intense aroma of woody acidity and tart apples. Lemony acidity in flavour with yeasty notes. Lingering dry ending. Not quite there yet (Troms, 31.05.2009).

Had this before, but the rate comes from a bottle @ De Garre. Orange with tight white head. Aroma is full of pepper, miinerals, and funk. Taste is slightly sour with lemony notes. Not too spritzy on the palate. Finish is sour and drying with little lingering. A classic for sure, and my rating for this likely increases as this ages.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 3, 2009
750ml Bottle: Tart aroma of fruit, spicy wood, and minerals. Poured amber/orange in color with a small, off-white head that lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Sparkling. A few mall particles. Heavily tart flavor. Tastes of tart fruit, tons of wood, light pear, slight vanilla, and acid. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Woody, tart, lightly dry finish. Delicious.

bboeckl (142) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2009
Poured a orangish red with big foamy head. Strong sourness up front. Lots of fruits and floral form a backdrop for the sour vinegar. These would include sour apple, citrus and hibiscus. Beneath the fruits is yet another layer of maltiness-wheat and pale malts. A musty yeast theme connects all these layers. This beer is either the product of thousands of years of diligence and beer knowledge or simply the beauty of throwing together local ingredients with the natural yeast in the air and crossing fingers. What ever it is, it works.

kopher (593) - New York, USA - JUN 1, 2009
cloudy burnt orange, thick foamy white head. very dry sharp citrussy aroma, tons of green apples and some yeast. taste is extremely sour in the front (and middle) and ending with some super dry bittersweet apples, long sour candy finish. other flavors are hard to discern, there is some woodyness (part of the dryness) and some yeast. medium carbonation and body take a back seat to flavors.
