Tasting Manual: Oakwood, complex and perfectly balanced, with smoky and spicy touches. This Traditional Oude Geuze is the favourite of out team of tasters. It is pleasantly full bodied, complex and has a few smoky and spicy touches. These unique flavours are due to the oak cask, which used to be used by red wine makers in France’s Rhone Valley. The oak leaves a clear mark on the general taste, adding an extremely welcome touch to the Lambic’s aroma.
