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.

glennmastrange (2804) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle. Moderate aromas all around. Straw for the malt, herbs for the hops, cobwebs and cellar for the yeast, with a heavy background note of wood and a powerful solvent smell. Head is large, frothy, white with good lacing and is fully lasting. Color is hazy, but sparkling amber/tan. Flavor starts heavily acidic and sour then finishes the same way with loads of bitterness. Palate is medium, watery with a bit of slickness and has an extremely fizzy carbonation. It finishes heavily astringent. Like the Flemish Sours, how the hell does one drink this and say they enjoyed the experience? I’m done being daring with my tasting of the unknown.

cgreb (422) - Marburg, GERMANY - NOV 27, 2008
bottle - hazy orange beer with almost no foam. Very sour aroma. Reminds on vine. The same for the flavour. Tastes very sour, like a brut cider. A little bit of "cellar" flavour. Very special beer but not my style.

mgermani (1002) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 27, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy pale golden-brown with no head to speak of. Aroma of sweet pineapple, vinigar, cider, quite pungent. First time I tried this was after a bunch of artificially-sweeneted lambics and my tastebuds were not happy. Re-corked it, left it in the fridge for nearly a month, and now I’m liking it a bit more. Very dry but with a lingering sweetness that balances nicely. Vinigar-cidery taste with a touch of spice, like cherry-pie (might be brett?) Thin body, barely carbonated. Not really my cup of tea, but complex enough to be interesting. Wouldn’t really want any great quantity of it, though. Many thanks to Boutip for the trade.

1999 bottle, sampled at RBSG 08. Pours a golden-amber. Aroma is sweet and sour, very fruity. Crisp, sour-sweet taste, citrus and other fruits. Light lingering sour sweetness. Very tasty and refreshing.

dnlsartin (80) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Cloudy appearance. Light-bodied. Apple, lemon, citrus, and floral notes form a wild, acidic sour for a tart, bitter, and sparkling finish.

MrBunn (2789) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2008
750 ml bottle. This comes out a fizzy amber and you can pick out the sour aromas as soon as the cork comes off. Head is big and kind of soapy-looking. Closer inspection of the nose reveals a grassy, lemony, funky tartness. Flavor is funky and tart, but has lots of other stuff going on... apples and oak with a very dry finish.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Bottle shared by lithy at the Pre-Brewer’s Jam Tasting. Pours a dark yellow with a fizzy, off-white head that leaves light lace. Musty, earthy aroma with some spices. Nice sour that brings out that white grapes, apple, and hay flavor. Medium body. Sour throughout, but not overwhelming. Dry but expected. Very enjoyable.
