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.

Orange yellow body with just a few white bubbles. Lemony woody aroma with some grapes. Lemons right off in the taste with the oak and some general delicious funk. Lingering sourness but a clean finish

2 finger white head. Dissipates quickly.
Hazy, deep amber to light brownish coloured beer.
Aroma is barnyard, light soil, red and green apples and light lemon with a hint of wet wood. Definitely good but not that exciting in my opinion.
Taste is white grape, green unripe apple, barnyard, lemon, light vinegar and light mint with a hint of soil.
High tartness. Dry but not at all overwhelming, quite juicy actually! Medium-low bitterness.
Overall: A lot of white wine-esque qualities in this Gueuze. Not my favorite style of beer but I definitely appreciate the craftsmanship. For a 6% beer it feels pretty big and filling, even though the fizziness and tartness makes it feel light at the same time. Good beer but not something I would rush to pick up again.

I love the complexity of this beer. It is sour, sure, but all is in balance and when you get used to the sourness all of the other flavors come up. Malt, oak, fruits. Great!

Aroma sour, green fruit, very strong. Smell of apple fills the room.
Hazy yellow with small bobbles, and a hugh white head that disappear quickly.
Extremely sour and acidic , with a taste of apple, quite unlike anything I’ve ever had. Taste more like a sparkling wine, then a beer. But without any bad aftertaste. Carbonation is spot on. Basically no hop taste and as powerful it is in the front of the mouth, there is not much in the back.
Not my taste, guess I’ll have to revisit, when I’m more familiar with lambics.

W aromacie nuty winne,octowe, winogronowe, delikatnie skórzane i delikatnie drewniane. W smaku kwaśne, winogronowe, odrobinę nawet słodkie, a na finiusz wytrawne. Na finiszu wybitnie limonkowe. Tworzy bardzo gęstą i trwałą pianę. Do tego jest ma barwę pomarańczową i jest mętne. Naprawdę niezłe.

Flaska från SB. Tack till JoacimMvp! Klarguldig med vit skumkrona. Klara och rena smaker och dofter av gröna äpplen, päron, hö och gräs, lite grön vindruva med lätt sockersötma och nötiga inslag (typ sesamkaka?). Lagom och ren syrlighet, alldeles lagom stram och torr. Oerhört lättdrucken. Ren och klar standardgeueze i hög klass!

Grateful to be finally able to try this legend. Pours iridescent gold, solid white head. Nose was first champaign, cider, fruity, apricots; turned funky, wet leather later. Mouth: The first moments are frighteningly flat, nothing happens and then boom!, the what they probably call the horse, stable etc. For the lambic-beginner that’s quite a shock. Sulphur. Citrusy astringent. Greatly acidic. Carbonation: average to high.

W aromacie nuty szampańskie, jabłko kwasnosc, dzikie nuty konskie, skora. Barwa ciemnozlota, piana drobna, bardzo obfita. W smaku intensywnie kwasne, jest tez dzikosc, jest takie sciagajace. Bardzo lekkie, orzezwiajace. Kwasnosc w tym piwie jest bardzo szlachetna. Swietny kwas.
