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.

Too carbonated, but very nice, smooth deep barnyard funk well balanced with complex medium high sourness, full of different sour fruit aromatics (citrus).

Nos elegancki, dzikość drożdży jakaś ucywilizowana, jeśli to spocona siodło, to siedziała na nim perfumowana szlachcianka. W ustach już więcej brettów, wytrawność, goryczka. to nie mój styl: szanuję ale kocham.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2017 Bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma has sour citrus and barnyard with a cellar feel. Taste is sour with grapefruit, rowen berries and leather with some barnyard. Really nice.

Nice orange pour, bit of white foam. Nose has this deep musty lambic sourness. Tastes tart, nice barley biscuit base with beautiful sour acidity. Funky farmhouse character there as well, elegantly bitter. Finishes dry, long tart linger. Great classic.

Taste from a 375ml bottle courtesy of David at Fat Fat Beer Horse, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of white wine and cider. Sour taste and finish.

PlutonowyMan (849) - Baardegem, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2017 Kolor miedziany, klarowny. Piana jest biala, wysoka, i bardzo trwała. Redukuje do grubej warstwy, pozostawiając sporo zdobień. Aromat kwaśny ale i mocno soczysty. Jest owocowy, gdzie wiodące są nuty jabłek, pomarańczy z dodatkiem agrestu i wanilii. Smak: cierpki, lekko ściągający, wytrawny kwaśny ze sporą dawką owocowości.  Goryczka pestkowa idzie w parze z cierpkością. Wysycenie wysokie w kierunku do średniego, pasuje idealnie.

Bardzo fajne oude geuze. Dobry balans między kwasowością, słodyczą i goryczką.

Une bière ambrée avec une forte carbonatation ainsi qu'une bonne effervescence. Au nez, on trouve un espèce de mélange entre levures sauvages et un aspect plus salin qui me fait penser un peu à une gose. En bouche, un trouve un aspect citronné, ainsi qu'une bonne acidité. Les levures sauvages arrivent un peu plus en second plan. La bière à une finale assez sèche qui me rappelle un peu le vin blanc. La bière est plus facile à boire que bien des gueuzes. Bien faite.

Big white head .Aroma of fresh cutt grass, sour and salt lemon, vinegar, leather . Taste of lemon, wet leather, green apple,vinegar,sour white wine,gooseberry, intensely herbal mid palate, hay, moderate funk. Absurd complexity, changes sip to sip, really dry. Among the best geuzes for sure.
