By mixing young (one-year old) Lambic with older Lambic a second spontaneous fermentation in the bottle is obtained. The result is called GUEUZE.
The beer pours with a very fluffy, pillowy, pale colored head which is lightly hazed, gold-straw colored. The aroma is of ripe farmhouse cheese as well as notes of straw and wheat. The beer is extremely tart and sour up front and finishes with a solid astringency with hints of lemon and tart grapefruit flavours. Warming brings out a hint of acetic spiciness that boosts the complexity even a bit more. Very light and spritzy. Beer and Food Pairing: Cheese (buttery; Brie, Gouda, Havarti, Swiss, sharp; Blue, Cheddar, pungent; Gorgonzola, Limburger)
Tenability: 2 years at least after bottling
