Editor’s Note: There is a lot of confusion on this one. Please look at your bottle. It belongs here only if it says "Vintage" on the label. If it does not, it belongs under the regular Oude Gueuze listing. The above vintage guide is not what you should go by, as there are both 2002, 2003, 2004, etc...releases of Vintage and Regular Oude Gueuze.

pentaz (1240) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle - Vintage 2002 @ Sur Smagning, Mashup Beer Festival. Pours cloudy orange with a lasting white small head. Aroma is barnyard, grapefruit, lactic, citrus-fruit, leather, apple, wood, light musty and a hint of something petroleum-like. Taste is light+ sweet, bitter and tart. Body is medium, texture is soft, carbonation is moderate. Finish is moderate long and very dry and tart with lemon. A very rounded geuze. I’m impressed with the elegance of a brew at this age.

Lilja (1685) - Malmö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2013
Drucken på flaska på Brekeriet bar i Djurslöv. Smak och doft gödsel, stall med toner av jäst och omogna äpplen. Syrlig smak med fatkaraktär. Riktigt gott.

HopRedHead (383) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours cloudy orange with a short, lively white head. Aroma is immediate citric sweetness, lemongrass, brett, lemon peel and champagne. Flavours are a perfect blend of sweet and sour - loads of citrus balanced out by dry barnyard yeast notes. Like a fine champagne, this is to be enjoyed in the company of good friends.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2014 Really close to perfection and one of the best beers I ever had. Every sip is a delight and an event in itself. It was 37,5 cl of pure liquid awesomeness.

Bottle. Hazy golden orange pour, foamy white head. Grain, lemon, musty hay, lots of funk, leather, sour green apple, oak, and yeast. Complex and delicious. Love good lambic.
