Editorís 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.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 17, 2012
Vintage 2007. Pours a hazy and orange beer with a weak white head. The aroma is fruit, basement, some tart and grapefruit. The flavor follows the nose with additional bitterness. The palate is fruity with bitterness. Overall a good beer.

750ml bottle dated 11/30/2006 thanks to grownfool. Iíve heard a couple people say this vintage is no good, donít believe them. Hazy orange like a gueuze would. Smells like citrus, hay, barn, phenols. Tastes pretty great, sour citrus with abut of plastic at the end but damn was this easy to knock back! Overall I lived it and wish I had more. Itís really too bad gueuze isnít priced more like IPA because I would hawg it down. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-02-2011 19:45:32

McGrupp612 (139) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 27, 2012
750 ml 2007 (december) bottle. Dark gold pour with a fluffy white head. Classic 3F funk but much stronger. Damp basement, earth, sweaty feet, high quality Parmesan (well aged high quality hard Italian cheese), and lactic sourness. The earthy, musty funk translates well Into the flavor. It is incredibly complex and well balanced by lactic acid, citrus pith and a little bit of lemon flesh. Mild astringency with a dry finish and medium carbonation nicely complement the funk and sour. Awesome beer and Iím glad I have a couple more for the cellar. Far superior to valentines day version.

BenH (2146) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2012
Bottle. Golden with white head. Aroma has typical lambic funk but much more intense than a typical geuze, very musty with some sharp notes. Taste is again extremely intense funk, earthy must. Extremely sour, an assault on the mouth. An intense beer, delicious.

UPDATED: FEB 16, 2013 Opened this baby to celebrate my 28th birthday and my engagement to my beautiful girlfriend. One of the oldest gueuzes Iíve had to date, really been looking forward to popping this. Pours a murky orangish brown in color with a half fingers worth of tight white head. The nose is straight dirty funk. There is lemon, dirt, manure, wet dog, horse blanket, and must. The flavor mirrors the nose, there is a bunch of lemon rind and must. Light mouthfeel, almost a little watery, light carbonation, gentle acidity, and a long finish. Had this side by side with Armand & Tommy and I thought it blew Armand & Tommy out of the water. The funk has taken a nice, big hold of this and isnít letting go. Armand is a magician.
