75cl bottle, sticker 2009, poured into a Cantillon sherry glass today, 10/4/2013. Bottle split into 4 pours. Drank this next to a 2013 Classic Geuze.

Review #274.

Pours a hazy golden colour, with an effervescent white head that disappears fairly quickly, especially compared to Classic. Retention is not high, but I suppose that's because there is no 1 year old lambic to provide the sugars that the bruxellensis need.

Smells full of lemon, zest, with lots of Cantillon earthiness and funk. Even a bit on the sweet side. I would say this smells more intense than the Classic Geuze, but with less lemon. I can't pin it down, but it has that component that the Classic Geuze and 3F Oude Geuze don't have that 3F Golden Blend does.

Flavour is quite vinous, like a nice clean chardonnay with a lot of earth and funk, Cantillon-style. It is fairly acidic on the side of vinegar, not quite heartburn-inducing but definitely sour. There is some sweetness as well. Some oak barrel rounds out the flavour.

Medium bodied, thicker bodied compared to the Classic Geuze. OK carbonation, not as crisp and refreshing as Classic Geuze but it does the job.

Very interesting take on the geuze style. I don't think this is supposed to be a classical geuze style, but rather more of a blend of 2-year old lambics. It shows here- more complex but less effervescent and refreshing than Classic Geuze. Worth trying at least once, but I would suggest that your resources are better off going towards the Lou Pepe Kriek or Framboise.
