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.

[37.5cl 2005 bottle, home, 03/01/10] Poured with absolutely no head. Aroma was incredibly funky: barnyard, lemon, leather, vinegar, earthy tones. Very sour, acidic, funky taste that lasts and lasts. Almost eye-wateringly puckering. Gave a sparkly mouthfeel. Very complex; this almost goes without saying, given the notes.

bursprak (763) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 16, 2014
375 ml bottle split two ways, ’08 vintage. Dark golden pour with a tiny head that quickly fades and leaves small lacings. Loads of funk, barnyard, green apples, lemon peel and some leather. So mellow but yet so complex. This is wonderful stuff!

GothGargoyle (1420) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
2008 vintage thanks to Mathias. Slightly cloudy golden orange with a good creamy white head. Aroma bus barnyard funk, mature cheese, dried stone fruits, hints of preserved figs. Medium bodied, tart and funky on the palate, very well balanced and complex, lightly fruity finish. Taste is dried apricots, peach pits, mature cheddar, candied citrus, hint of sour peach candy. Delicious.

Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Dave. 2006 Vintage.Thanks man! Pour is slightly hazy orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Big funky, lemon rind, biscuit, sweet tarts, urine, slight cheese, and wax in the aroma. Taste is lemons, some grass, dough, biscuit, stone fruits, orange, and vanilla with a semi sour finish. Slick mouthfeel with almost no carbonation. Nice stuff - just wish it had more carbonation.
