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.

BlackHaddock's rating

BlackHaddock (6774) - Shropshire, - NOV 5, 2012
Green 37.5cl bottle: best before 9th Dec 2019. Poured carefully into two old Home Ales half-pint countryman tankards on 3rd Nov 2012. Almost clear old gold to new golden in colour, no real head to talk about. The smell and taste reminded me of good quality scrumpy, cooking apples, baking powder and Bicarbonate of Soda: very acidic. I actually thought this was OK and drinkable compared to others in this style. Try as I might, this style of brewing/bottling and blending still leaves me unimpressed somewhat. I want to embrace the idea of Lambic beers and Geuze but struggle to feel the wonderous excitment other beer geeks get from having beers from this stable or other Lambic breweries.

Złote, zmętnione, biała, dość trwała piana. Nos: białe winogrona, agrest, funk, czasem wychodzi coraz więcej siana i stajni. W ustach średnio-wysoka kwaśność, więcej stajni, owoce bardziej schowane. Posmak pestkowo-porzeczkowy, trochę ściągające od tanin.

john44 (2676) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2017
Bottle. Hazy gold in colour. Very earthy, leathery, yeasty barnyard funk aroma and taste. Earth, leather, wood. Funky & musty. Vinous. Tart, sour, dry taste throughout. Citrus-fruity (grapefruit & lemon and hint of green apples). Fairly spritzy. Long very dry, dry finish. Nice Gueuze. (2008)

750ml (2008) courtesy of Spacecoyote. Poured a hazy burnt orange color with a small fizzy off white head. Aroma/taste of sour fruit, peach skins, bitter grapefruit, funk, and toasted grains. A real treat I got to try this aged.

Very nice lambic, not as balanced as Golden Blend, but still very good. Recommend to everyone.

mariuspoenari (1992) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 8, 2017
Had this a few times, this is the first time I also review it.
75cl bottle at home. Hazy orange pour with a tall off-white head. Notes of macerated apples, peaches, pears, salt and other salty minerals, apple vinegar, barnyard funk, hay. Medium to light body, super crisp, dry and refreshing. In my opinion, the best year-round gueuze that you can find. Absolutely delicious.

Buena gueze bastante afrutada, con los toques cidos de todas las guezes. Entra muy bien, para beber despacito. Se puede beber.

Nice fruity flavour. Nice fine foam. So far, so good. Then the flavours. This isnt for me. Really acidic. Grapefruit bitterness, raspberries, wheat, lemon, lemon zest. Im glad to have tried this, but couldnt finish the bottle. Well-made, but not for me.

cmacklin (1011) - 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.
