English: Gueuze (or Geuze) is a type of lambic, a Belgian beer. It is made by blending young (1-year-old) and old (2- to 3-year-old) lambics into a new beer, which is then bottled for a second fermentation. Because the young lambic is not fully fermented, it contains fermentable sugars, which allow the second fermentation to occur. Lambic that undergoes a second fermentation in the presence of sour cherries before bottling results in kriek, a beer closely related to Geuze.
Nederlands: Geuze (veelal ook aangeduid met de Franse spelling gueuze) is een biersoort die ontstaat door het mengen van jonge en oude lambieken en deze te laten hergisten op fles, soms nog jarenlang. Het mengen van die bieren wordt steken genoemd. Dit geschiedt in het Pajottenland en in de Zennevallei.
