750mL 1999 ed courtesy of Travlr and again courtesy of Armand. This is so insanely good. Note that this is the 1999- which many consider the best geuze ever made. Armand I think would agree. From talking to him directly, this one is made with Boon, Girardin, and Lindemann’s lambik. This, as Armand said, can never be replicated and is really just a product of pure luck and circumstance.

The 1999 geuze I have had twice and love it to death. First, it pours like an unblended. It is super deep, cloudy orange with no head. Aroma is incredible. You can smell it from 20 feet away: huge leather, tannins, citrus, blood orange, mango yogurt, feet, sweat. Taste is beautiful soft yogurt/lactic, bright citrus, curacao, grapefruit, just mouth-watering all the way around without being too sour or acetic. The Girardin being blended in here is just so awesome as a base lambic. Very quick, zippy palate. I can’t find anything wrong this this geuze and see no reason to put it up with J&J Blauw.

I am rating the 1999 ed mainly because I like to score a beer the highest mark that I have ever given it, even if I have had multiple samples that are inferior. I feel it is unfair to average out all of my scores for special lambics like this. I've had dozens of normal 3F Geuze bottles, but the 1999 is by far the best.
