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.

DraftDodger (1733) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 28, 2017
Copenhagen 28/10-2017. 75 cl bottle from Vin De Table, NV. From the 16/17 season (assemblages no. 8) with an ABV of 5,4. Simple stylish bottle wit a big "3" printed on the bottle. Pours hazy golden yellow with small white head. Settles as thin rim of foam alongside the side of the glass. No lacing. Settles as thin patch of foam floating aimlessly around. Aroma is fresh and tart with a nice dry streak. Some slightly sweeter unripe apples in the background. Fairly strong carbonation and watery palate. Flavor is tart fruit with only subdued sweetness. Finish is dry as a white wine. Nice crisp and dry geuze. Makes me miss summer.

kaserov (1023) - Oviedo, SPAIN - OCT 25, 2017
Color dorado anaranjado, translúcido de inicio, más turbio al final de la botella, con capa de espuma blanca de tres dedos de grosor (apariencia jabonosa y buena retención). Carbonatación alta. Textura acuosa y ligeramente efervescente. Aroma ácido suave y realmente fresco, con reminiscencias herbales y especiadas y madera (menos presente que en otras Gueuze que he probado). Sabor ácido de entrada, con algo de madera, fruta (pera, manzana, limón) y final de ligerísimo amargor. Seca.

Golden color, large beige head. Tart aromas with gooseberries, vinegar, citrus and earthy hints. Sour taste with earth, gooseberries and lemon juice. Too sour for me.

Muggus69 (2748) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - OCT 17, 2017
Corked & caged 375mL bottle from Carwyn Cellars, Melbourne. BB 26/08/2036
Pours a lively clear pale gold body.
Complex aroma - cereals & hay, white wine vinegar, green apple, bruised pineapple, grapefruit, white grapes, nice hint of oak.
Lovely texture, very fine bead, bracing acidity, long drawn out finish, moreishly mouth puckeringly juicy.
Intense body - lots of grapefruit, and grapes, and oak, and green apple. Acidity builds, acetic acid twang, funky hard cheese notes, beautifully balanced.
Fantastic beer - amazingly elegant!

zizivan (22) - SLOVENIA - OCT 16, 2017
Too carbonated, but very nice, smooth deep barnyard funk well balanced with complex medium high sourness, full of different sour fruit aromatics (citrus).

wojanex (459) - warszawa, POLAND - OCT 14, 2017
Nos elegancki, dzikość drożdży jakaś ucywilizowana, jeśli to spocona siodło, to siedziała na nim perfumowana szlachcianka. W ustach już więcej brettów, wytrawność, goryczka. to nie mój styl: szanuję ale kocham.

Villyzzz (458) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 13, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma has sour citrus and barnyard with a cellar feel. Taste is sour with grapefruit, rowen berries and leather with some barnyard. Really nice.
