Perseverance and a dry finish, a difficult combination
It is thanks to our many years of experience and our new brewing hall built in 2013 that we can shift the limits of traditional Lambiek beers. This experience and this tool allow us to continue and completely create new Geuzes with a great complexity and balance. It allows us to explore new possibilities. Bringing such dry finish and fullness together was a big challenge. But the result is a pleasant, complex and well-balanced Old Geuze.Share:
