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.

750ml bottle @ Alexs. 1999 Vintage : ABV 6.5%. Pours a darker straw golden colour with a slight haze and a healthy off white head that dissipated after some time. Nose of citrus, funky barnyard, musk, hint of vinegar. Flavour is tart, sour, barnyard, oak, citrus, and wow this is smooth. Compared to a fresh geuze the sharpness that is generally there is muted. This leaves a wonderfully delicious geuze that really drinks like a fine champagne. Thank you Alex for opening this gem.

Bottle->tulip. 2014 and 2004 side-by-side. Hazy gold with small offwhite head. Tart and funky barnyard and citrus, complex yet very quaffable. Age mellows the funk but fuses the flavors nicely. Just awesome.

37,5 cl bottle, served in wine glass. Poured cloudy golden amber with a huge frothy, spidery 4 finger off white head. Lively carbonation in glass. Aroma: barnyard, citrus, green apples, basement, blue cheese, musk, vinegar. Taste: tart & sour, barnyard, oak, blue cheese, goat, vinous, dusty granny smith apples, funk, rotting hay, peach, citrus, green grapes. Medium body with a long, sharp sour and dry finish with a hint of fruity sweetness in the background. Absolutely delicious geuze that really drinks like a good champagne. A great work of art...

Una delle migliori Geuze mai bevute. Buona, ottimi aromi e profumi, acida e molto dissetante.
