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.

375 ml bottled on Nov 18, 2010, purchased from Ledger’s 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). There’s 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.) Here’s to Lucky!

Offar (7) - DENMARK - JUN 16, 2017 does not count
Aroma sour, green fruit, very strong. Smell of apple fills the room. Hazy yellow with small bobbles, and a hugh white head that disappear quickly. Extremely sour and acidic , with a taste of apple, quite unlike anything I’ve ever had. Taste more like a sparkling wine, then a beer. But without any bad aftertaste. Carbonation is spot on. Basically no hop taste and as powerful it is in the front of the mouth, there is not much in the back. Not my taste, guess I’ll have to revisit, when I’m more familiar with lambics.

W aromacie nuty winne,octowe, winogronowe, delikatnie skórzane i delikatnie drewniane. W smaku kwaśne, winogronowe, odrobinę nawet słodkie, a na finiusz wytrawne. Na finiszu wybitnie limonkowe. Tworzy bardzo gęstą i trwałą pianę. Do tego jest ma barwę pomarańczową i jest mętne. Naprawdę niezłe.

Flaska från SB. Tack till JoacimMvp! Klarguldig med vit skumkrona. Klara och rena smaker och dofter av gröna äpplen, päron, hö och gräs, lite grön vindruva med lätt sockersötma och nötiga inslag (typ sesamkaka?). Lagom och ren syrlighet, alldeles lagom stram och torr. Oerhört lättdrucken. Ren och klar standardgeueze i hög klass!

Grateful to be finally able to try this legend. Pours iridescent gold, solid white head. Nose was first champaign, cider, fruity, apricots; turned funky, wet leather later. Mouth: The first moments are frighteningly flat, nothing happens and then boom!, the what they probably call the horse, stable etc. For the lambic-beginner that’s quite a shock. Sulphur. Citrusy astringent. Greatly acidic. Carbonation: average to high.

W aromacie nuty szampańskie, jabłko kwasnosc, dzikie nuty konskie, skora. Barwa ciemnozlota, piana drobna, bardzo obfita. W smaku intensywnie kwasne, jest tez dzikosc, jest takie sciagajace. Bardzo lekkie, orzezwiajace. Kwasnosc w tym piwie jest bardzo szlachetna. Swietny kwas.

How can I not rated this one before? Aroma is "green" fruity with stable characters and grapefruit and light dusty hay. Taste is funky citrus with and unripe green apple touch. Earthy herbal characters brings depth and balances out the sourness really well. So good. This particular bottle was from the 2016 batch, and I think I like it even more when it’s fresh and crisp even if a stored bottle can give you rewards with further taste experiences.

Słomkowa barwa. Klarowne, mocno nasycone. Bąbelki stałe grają w szkle. Bogata piana. W aromacie owoce. Głównie winogrona i aromaty stajni, odrobina skóry. W smaku dominuje solidna kwaśność. Naprawdę solidna. Ściągająca podniebienie. Nasycenie wzmacnia teksturę.

2016 - Pours slightly hazy orange with high white head. Aroma of apricots, grapes, green apple, white wine, hay, leather and light barnyard. Refreshing with medium sourness, some tartness and winish o and herbal bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. Very high carbonation, a bit to lively for me, but still a very good drinkable.
