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.

alteregoo (1147) - POLAND - SEP 4, 2016
Piana gruba, sycząca, szybko opada do zera. Barwa złota, mocno opalizująca. Aromat delikatny, głwnie niedojrzałe jasne winogrona, cytryna, delikatna kiszonka, trawa, skra, stajnia... W smaku dość kwaśne, wytrawne, powiela się wszystko z zapachu plus odrobina ził, cierpkich owocw (pigwa?), starego drewna, octu jabłkowego. Goryczka niewielka, pestkowo taninowa. Wysycenie średnie.
Przyjemne, delikatne i ułożone, kwaśno dzikie Gueuze, bardzo stylowe, orzeźwiające, pijalne, chciałoby się wręcz powiedzieć "dostojne" - jak dla mnie super na cieplejsze letnie dni.

PotjeBier (2881) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
Bottle with bottling date October 2014, next to a bottle of Millennium Geuze. Hazy golden color. Creamy white head with a thin layer retention. Aromas: green apples, leafy hops, sour, wood, sour fruit. Flavor is rather sharp sour, fruity. Light bodied. This was much sharper and "greener" than the MG, which was mild, soft - and I liked that one more.

Palate is tangy, high spritzy carbonation, uber dry in the finish. Good.

gyhallmanti (331) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2016
75cl bottle split thanks to SimonBlok. Pours a hazy orange colour with a big white head which recedes to a layer on top. Aroma of dust, apple, grapes, lemon. Taste is medium sweet, light bitter, fairly sour with a jaw cringing and mouthwatering finish. Notes of leather, something i can only distiguish as royal club bitter lemon, citrus, apple, light caramel. Texture is sticky, medium to light bodied with medium carbonation.

ctipping (1595) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2016
375 mL bottle. Bottled 11/18/2010. Originally reviewed 9/5/2011. As soon as the cage was untwisted, the cork shot out of the top and hit the ceiling. Nice. Golden straw body with lively bubbles. Huge head that almost overflows my glass. The head is also lively and eventually dies down to a nice pillow of foam. Perfect look for a beer. Smell has tons of funk. Definitely more prevalent than the sour smells, which are hardly present. The tartness is more of an acidity that pierces through the funky hay smells. Taste is much like the aroma, the tartness is not on display. Its the funk. Great grassy and woody flavors intermingled with acidic sourness. The finish has a peppery oak finish that comes off as the slightest bit bitter. A little heavy fresh, considering how effervescent the flavors are. Not really dry at all, which is what I expected. Strong carbonation, which does help alleviate the weight of the beer. With some age, this beer dries out, cutting much of the sweetness. Complex and playful. I would drink this over nearly any gueuze out there. The more I drink it, the more I appreciate its quality.

Orange a bit cloudy with a small white head. Sour with maracaju like fruit taste. Very refreshing on a hot day.
