Enjoy the beer that you deserve.
This complex and very refreshing wheat ale ranges from dark straw to pale amber in color, is light-bodied, is moderate in strength, and is characterized by intensely fruity, sour, and acidic aromas and flavors. These ales range from being very dry to mildly sweet.
Gueuze lambic, possibly because of the blending that occurs, is generally smoother than Unblended Lambic. Some modern commercial examples are considered to be more sweet than the style profile permits.
These are uniquely sour ales from the Senne (Zenne) Valley of Belgium. They trace their roots to a centuries-old farmhouse brewing tradition. 'Gueuze' is the French spelling, while 'geuze' is the Flemish spelling. Versions of this beer made outside of the Brussels area of Belgium cannot be called Lambic because of an appellation protection. However, these versions are referred to as 'lambic-style' and may have a faithful resemblance to those of true origin.
