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.

EKGoldings (649) - Radford, Virginia, USA - NOV 14, 2012
I had taste from a couple of bottles of this recently from some work were doing. Brisk acidity with funky fruity characteristics expected in a gueuze. I buy & try every gueuze I can get my hands on and this is one of the best Ive had.

cmacklin (976) - 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.

I think I have to accept that lambic styles are not my thing. There seems to be a potential for something that I would like and for that reason, I have been trying different lambics. This one was the most revered of them and also the one, I liked the least.

Jashiu (637) - Gdask, POLAND - DEC 27, 2016
750ml bottle from sklepzpiwem.pl Gdańsk.
2016 vintage

Funky barnyard and citrus fruits aroma.
Taste is very bitter, bitterness resembling that of grapefruit albedo, some white fruit pit taste (grape pits). Medium sourness. Rather long and unpleasant finish of pits and grapefruit albedo bitterness.
Overall I was greatly disappointed by this one. I guess I should not have drank it fresh without aging as its harsh and needs balance.

Parmenion777 (192) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
A clear bright gold pour with a good sized frothy white head. A pungent aroma, of tart green apples, lemon juice, hay and yeasty. An initial tart sourness, apple and grapes before a some malt sweetness kicks in with a lemony sourness in the finish. Fairly smooth medium bodied and moderate to light carbonation. A very good lambic.

Flaske p Agenturet. Aroma syrlig duft, duft av gammel do. Utseende uklar gylden med hvitt skum. Smak syrlig eplejuice, en anelse hvetemalt. Srdelses inspirerende surl
