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.

mpersinger (365) - , California, USA - NOV 12, 2011
375 ml bottled on Nov 18, 2010, purchased from Ledgers a few months ago. Cork was chueco, and ready to go. Citrusy floral volatile aroma gives way to oak, dried apricot and damp linens (a refined barn yard, if you will). Theres quite good clarity here, and color is golden with a brassy orange hue topped with half-inch plush, persistent white head of tightly-packed tiny to medium bubbles with rising columns, leaving some lacing. Medium body and perky effervescence support a flavor profile rich with some triple cream soft French cheese, tropical fruit and fruit punch around a core of dried cantaloupe and honey that is then punctuated by quite tart lactic and red fruit sour, followed by a sweet lull then a blooming finish of fresh grapefruit that dries and sweetens. Lemon meringue flavors emerge as it warms. (Seems like you can taste oak in the dregs.) Heres to Lucky!

Large white head that quickly dissipates, big barnyard funky earth notes on the aroma that translate right to the palate. Excellent balanced dry tartness with an equally balanced carbonation. Perfect for summer. Makes me very curious to pair it with some cheese.

Phenomenal and close to style, but from the economic viewpoint and my amateurish palette, not worth the premium over an Oude Boon Gueuze.

Bright orange with thin head. Aroma and flavour have some sherberty tartness. Chalky in a good way.

ALIBALI (1558) - Kiel, GERMANY - APR 7, 2017
Yauuuuu!!! Ich lieb mein funky Gueuze. Wunderbar anzuschauen, liegt es doch honiggelb und edel beschumt im Glas. Der betrende, cheesy muffelnde, Aprikosen Stinkysmell lt mich laut auflachen..ein Witz??? So lovely 😀!!! Dann, die Rutsche....es kommt sauer, spicey, bleibt immer prickelnd brettig und ist einfach nur zum niederknien. Lang sitzt man mit einem Lcheln im Gesicht, unglubig da...hhhuuuuiiiiii 💣 375ml Meisterwerk von FINESTBELGIANBEERS.COM. Thanx Maui...for the hot Tip 😊. Vintage 2014. Vielleicht 9???

Pours large, murky golden with a frothy, creamy, lasting and lacing white head. Nose is heavy, green apples, citrus, vinegar, moderate yeast and light floral and warm spice. Taste is moderate sweet and heavy sour, light bitter with a lasting, sour finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is lively. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pitch992 (196) - SLOVENIA - APR 1, 2017
Bottle from Pivotoc at belgian beer fest ljubljana. A gusher. Cork blew a few meters high immediately after opening the metal protection. Could be stored badly as it was not cooled. Anyhow, Aroma was citrus, hay, horse blanket, acid, oak, low herb. Appearance is pale golden, clear, white head with good retention and is clear. Taste is similar to aroma and nicely balanced. Acidity is high but not agressive or harsh. Palate is light body, slick feel, spritzy. Overall very drinkable, pleasant and nicely complex.

Hrlijk. Geen poespas. Paardenstal, goudbloem in aroma. Zuur en lichte wrangheid mooi in balans! Volle smaak. De afdronk is zeer complex. Mijn favoriete gewone oude geuze.
