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.

How can I not rated this one before? Aroma is "green" fruity with stable characters and grapefruit and light dusty hay. Taste is funky citrus with and unripe green apple touch. Earthy herbal characters brings depth and balances out the sourness really well. So good. This particular bottle was from the 2016 batch, and I think I like it even more when its fresh and crisp even if a stored bottle can give you rewards with further taste experiences.

Słomkowa barwa. Klarowne, mocno nasycone. Bąbelki stałe grają w szkle. Bogata piana. W aromacie owoce. Głwnie winogrona i aromaty stajni, odrobina skry. W smaku dominuje solidna kwaśność. Naprawdę solidna. Ściągająca podniebienie. Nasycenie wzmacnia teksturę.

2016 - Pours slightly hazy orange with high white head. Aroma of apricots, grapes, green apple, white wine, hay, leather and light barnyard. Refreshing with medium sourness, some tartness and winish o and herbal bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Very high carbonation, a bit to lively for me, but still a very good drinkable.

Corked bottle. Hazy honey gold with lots of fizz and sustained head. Vinegar, dusty basement must aroma. Tart, thirst quenching, citrus, light vinegar, lemon tree leaf bitterness if youve ever licked a leaf from a lemom tree. Fantastic geuze, really complex, but satisfying and enjoyable.
