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.

Jashiu (701) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
750ml bottle from sklepzpiwem.pl Gdańsk.
2016 vintage

Funky barnyard and citrus fruits aroma.
Taste is very bitter, bitterness resembling that of grapefruit albedo, some white fruit pit taste (grape pits). Medium sourness. Rather long and unpleasant finish of pits and grapefruit albedo bitterness.
Overall I was greatly disappointed by this one. I guess I should not have drank it fresh without aging as its harsh and needs balance.

Parmenion777 (203) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
A clear bright gold pour with a good sized frothy white head. A pungent aroma, of tart green apples, lemon juice, hay and yeasty. An initial tart sourness, apple and grapes before a some malt sweetness kicks in with a lemony sourness in the finish. Fairly smooth medium bodied and moderate to light carbonation. A very good lambic.

Flaske p Agenturet. Aroma syrlig duft, duft av gammel do. Utseende uklar gylden med hvitt skum. Smak syrlig eplejuice, en anelse hvetemalt. Srdelses inspirerende surl

Bottle at Compton des Arts. Pours golden with entry of fizz and a cream head. Nose is nice and sour, plenty of bret. Taste is lovely and sour but not too overpowering. Really refreshing.

Kita (2018) - Koper, SLOVENIA - NOV 26, 2016
Corked bottle, 0.375l. Cloudy bronze amber color with thin creamy off-white head, yeast residue and sparkling appearance. Aroma is vinous, musty, woody, yeasty and fruity, mainly of currant and gooseberry. Taste starts sour citric and grainy, following is woody vinous and chalky, mouthfeel is crisp and dry with mild spicy note, while finish is very mild bitter. Medium body, creamy texture and fizzy carbonation in palate. Couldnt wait for more than 2 years with aging...
