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. Clear golden with a huge champagne-like head. Lovely aroma funk, meadows, wild strawberries, citrus and lactic bacteria. Sour upfront with hints of sweetness and light bitterness on finish. Bone dry, highly carbonated. Amazing!

Tinaccio (185) - Milano, ITALY - APR 30, 2017
750 ml bottle from St Albans Beer Shop, St Albans, UK. Shared at home with friends. Colour is hazy orange with a medium to big, frothy, lasting white head. Aroma is complex. Sour, acidic fruits, citrus, but something sweet too. Then grass, earth, barnyard, wood. Taste is medium to light sour and light sweet. Body is medium to light, carbonation is soft. Great for me.

psydtamales (8) - Yorba Linda, California, USA - APR 22, 2017 does not count
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.

ironcontra (69) - POLAND - APR 17, 2017
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 (1614) - 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.
