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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Enjoyed from a 12oz bottle in a wine glass. The beer pours a medium yellow to very light golden color, with a small white head. Aromas of Brettanomyces and tartness. Flavors that seem to show several different strains of the aforesaid "wild" yeast, along with the remnants of lactic bacterium. The beer is revelatory in the sense that it shows the true art of the blender, who created this nectar from three seemingly disparate products. Absolutely amazing, and worth every penny.

Cristobal37 (1084) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 15, 2017
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.

antsaluga (99) - Krakw, POLAND - MAY 4, 2017
Pomarańczowe, lekko zmetnione z dużym wysycenie. Buduje duża biała pianę. Aromat bardzo intensywny. Dużo aromatow białego wina. Poza tym bardzo charakterystyczne nuty dla dzikich drożdży. Skrzane, lekko ziemiste. Świeże i kwaskowate. W smaku kwaśność mocno dominuje, wzmocniona dużym nagazowaniem piwa potęguje przyjemne lekkie szczypanie w język. Potem do głosu dochodzą nuty dzikich drożdży. Jest stajnia, delikatne nuty skrzane, cierpki posmak. Finisz bardzo długi i wytrawny, lekka goryczka kojarząca się z łodygami kiści winogrona. Mega piwo.

Tinaccio (255) - 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.
