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.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2017 W aromacie białe owoce, jabłka, bretty, wiejsko. W wyglądzie brzoskwiniowe, mętne, z niezłą białą pianą. W smaku owoce, jabłka, bretty, wiejskie klimaty, trochę kiszonki, na finiszu trochę słonecznika. Ciało średnie, pijalne, taniczne. Bardzo dobre, smaczne gueuze.

Złote, zmętnione, biała, dość trwała piana. Nos: białe winogrona, agrest, funk, czasem wychodzi coraz więcej siana i stajni. W ustach średnio-wysoka kwaśność, więcej stajni, owoce bardziej schowane. Posmak pestkowo-porzeczkowy, trochę ściągające od tanin.

john44 (2718) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Hazy gold in colour. Very earthy, leathery, yeasty barnyard funk aroma and taste. Earth, leather, wood. Funky & musty. Vinous. Tart, sour, dry taste throughout. Citrus-fruity (grapefruit & lemon and hint of green apples). Fairly spritzy. Long very dry, dry finish. Nice Gueuze. (2008)

750ml (2008) courtesy of Spacecoyote. Poured a hazy burnt orange color with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma/taste of sour fruit, peach skins, bitter grapefruit, funk, and toasted grains. A real treat I got to try this aged.

Very nice lambic, not as balanced as Golden Blend, but still very good. Recommend to everyone.

mariuspoenari (2004) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2017
Had this a few times, this is the first time I also review it.
75cl bottle at home. Hazy orange pour with a tall off-white head. Notes of macerated apples, peaches, pears, salt and other salty minerals, apple vinegar, barnyard funk, hay. Medium to light body, super crisp, dry and refreshing. In my opinion, the best year-round gueuze that you can find. Absolutely delicious.

Buena gueze bastante afrutada, con los toques cidos de todas las guezes. Entra muy bien, para beber despacito. Se puede beber.

Jesper86 (88) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2017
Nice fruity flavour. Nice fine foam. So far, so good. Then the flavours. This isnt for me. Really acidic. Grapefruit bitterness, raspberries, wheat, lemon, lemon zest. Im glad to have tried this, but couldnt finish the bottle. Well-made, but not for me.

cmacklin (1016) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2017
750ml bottle. (2014 vintage) Pours a hazy pale orange-gold with a medium, fizzy, short lived, off-white head that dissipates to an outer ring, leaving spotty lace. Funky aroma of leather, barnyard, skunk, vinegar, citrus, yeast and oak. Fruity flavour of lemon, grapefruit, orange, green apples, wheat, yeast, barnyard and oak with a crisp, sour, bone dry finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. A great lambic with some complexity.
