COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blend of 1, 2, and 3 year old lambics.
A true Geuze - a blend of 1, 2, and 3 year-old lambic, unfiltered and unpasteurized, and aged in the bottle for at least a year after blending. Refermentation in the bottle gives this Geuze its famous champagne-like spritziness. The lambic that goes into it is brewed only with 60% barley malt, 40% unmalted wheat, aged hops, and water, spontaneously fermented by wild yeasts, and matured in oak casks.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 21, 2005
2003: Pour is golden straw with big bubbled fast fading off white head...smell is sour, dirt, apples, vinegar, and for sure horseblanket funk...taste is sour and musty with hints of dirt, cobweb, slight bitterness, and apples...good, but I think maybe a touch over-rated...

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2006 2000 is the beauty, great geuze..creamy, smooth. 2003Malt and vinegar. Very smooth. Enormous head. Creamy in mouth. Great for its style, which I am trying the highest rated for the experience. Vinegar in aroma. Tough to finish a bottle,

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2005
Bottle from Beers of Europe - Identified as ’Oud Beersel Oude Gueuze’ on their website, but the photo was of this. Yay! Hazy orange with no head. Glorious balanced aroma with lemon, wood, brett, barnyard, green apple. Lemon-sour in the mouth with glorious puckering finish. Classy stuff.

harrisoni (13288) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 3, 2005
Bottle, St Albans Beer Festival 2005. Hazy orange colour. Sour, lemon, really lovely flavour, really intense and superb. Didn’t like lambics and gueuzes to start with but hey, your palate gets educated after a while

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2006 375ml bottle served in (I know it’s wrong, but we had nothing more suiting at home) white whine glass. Cloudy yellowy orange. Yellowy white head. Smells burnt, danish cheese, sour, malt, wheat, acrid, sulphuric, citric acid. Taste is sour, burnt, cork and perhaps lactic(?). Sour, bubbly, a little bit slimy,very sour aftertaste, leaves a sulphuric or limestone character.

Sten (621) - Westerlo, BELGIUM - SEP 26, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2006 Hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma is sour. The taste is acidic. A very good gueuze. (Corked Bottle 37.5cl and 75cl 6 alcohol% in my version)

GregClow (2858) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2005
Bottle at O’Brien’s, San Diego, shared with a bunch of RateBeer locals - courtesy of DaSilky1, I think. 2001 vintage. Sweet Jesus, there was MOLD on the LABEL! That’s gotta be a good sign. Hazy golden colour with a decent white head. Amazing funky/cheesy aroma, with serious moldy blanket notes. (As I wrote that, I realized that it probably doesn’t seem very appealing, but oh, it was...) Complex flavour - tart apples, sour lemon, musty leather, wet wood. This just makes me sad that the selection of gueuzes and lambics is so pitful back here in Toronto...

Oh how I love guezes!! Pours a cloudy orange color with a thin head and little bit of lacing. The aroma is very tart and sour and the flavor is nice and tart to match, suprising fruit in the flavor as well. vinous notes in the flavor and slight wood like finish. nice and dry, just the way i like my guezes!
