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.

Bottle at North Bar. Rating #300! Chess to Erin and Will for helping me decide. Pours a orange gold, small head. Aroma is classic gueuze - grapefruit, horse blanket, straw, but with a lovely redcurrant/raspberry thing going on. Taste is similar - upfront sherbet giving way to grapefruit/lemon tartness, straw/grass notes, and a lovely sour grapefruit finish that pickers and lingers for years (and turns a bit mandarin-ish while its at it). Not as puckering as a Cantillon, but more four than a Mariage Parfait or a Cuvee Rene. Lovely, lovely, lovely. Gueuzey yumminess. Mmmm.

Fine gueze. Leathery, citrus and stable-ish aroma. More sour than acidic. Mine was a bit too carbonated which made it more difficult to enjoy.

From a shared bomber at a party. Aroma is dry funk. Flavor is VERY funky with a good but not overwhelming dose of sourness as well as a good dry backbone and some sweet wheat. Somewhat light bodied. Good beer.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2017 Bottle at home. Has a nice sour taste possibly to sour not sure I like this compared to boon. It produces little head and has a taste of apples

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2017 great geuze. sauer, but not too much, I’d say somewhere in the middle, full of taste and sauer enough to be great. Also a little hints of bitterness. The nose is great.

Primekick (91) - POLAND - JUL 28, 2017
Intensywny kwaskowaty aromat, duzo stajni, agrest, winogrona, ocet. W smaku równiez dosyc kwasne, cierpkie, mocno sciagajace. Lekkie i orzezwiajace.

4.2
Zilverenmaan (214) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 27, 2017
Aroma and taste mostly tart, soft, not very sour, rather fruity. Distinctly bitter en astringent finish. Tartness is elegant and subtle but very rich and complex of taste and aroma. Excellent geuze.

From Zombier. In Teku glass. Playing Pillara of Eternity. It may be fault of my palate, but although I havent found it completely disgusting i didnt enjoy it either. Just tartness with some lemon
