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.

yespr (30631) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 26, 2008
37.5 cL bottle, thanks to Jeppe. Pours hazy orange with a slowly diminishing off-white head. Aroma is barnyard and orange fruity. Light wood note. Flavour starts solid citric before a dry wooden note appears. Light orange fruity finish with a that classic brett/yeasty tartness. Dry and wooden yet smooth and fruity too - nice balance.

Ungstrup (29017) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 11, 2006
An unclear orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is super acidic with notes of grapefruit and wood, and the flavor is also lovely acidic with lots of grapefruit notes, and with a dry metallic end.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 10, 2006
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Pours a hazy honey golden with a creamy, off-white head. Distinct acidity in the nose, but also fruit, barnyard, manure and horse sweat - all the usual Brett characteristics. Light body with lots of fruitiness, citrus - grapefruit in particular - and acidity. But actually surprisingly smooth and mellow. This is not the kinda gueuze that makes your tongue crumble. Thanks to BierKönig for sharing. 100306

oh6gdx (20216) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled (thanks omhper). Firstly, the cork flew in the wooden roof, and almost broke it, so beware of high pressure. A bit hazy golden colour, mediumsized head. Aroma is sourness and fruits. Flavour is dry and sour oak. Extremely smooth to drink. Long sour fruitish aftertaste. Just superb!

omhper (19185) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2006
Bottled. Hazy golden, firm fluffy head. Distinct citric nose where barnyard is very evident. Soft, lively and juicy with concentrated flavours. Acidic and ultra-complex, yet frefreshingly drinkable. A super premium gueuze.

2012-10-28, corked half bottle, 9-5-8-3-17=42
bottled 10/02/2005, bb 02/2015, 7+ years old
Label "De Nachtlichten" by Schilderij Felix De Boeck

Hazy amber color with frothy generous head. The aroma is sour, with cellar smells, a bit citrusy, wood (chestnut honey like) and lightly corky too. The mouthfeel is smooth, well carbonated; tart and a bit astringent; plenty of citrus peel, oranges and grapefruits; dry; fat final, woody.
This is an imposing Gueuze, big more than elegant.

2006-06-05, corked half bottle, 9-5-8-5-17=44
Hazy blond color; giant head; intense and fine perlage. Strong aroma, dry, of cellar, citrus fruits (lemon and some grapefruit). Over a soft malt there is an extreme astringency; the sourness is ordinary for this kind of beer; at the end the astringency dominates again, with grapefruit sourness and fruitness, and bitter orange peels. Complex. A great pleasure.

21st May 2008. Nice Geuze for me (a non sour lover). Not too sharp or dry but not much fruit either. A Pleasant puckerer! Goes down very easily with a lip smack at the end!
