Clear, straw colored body with a frothy white head. Musty, barnyard aroma with some green apple. Very dry up front, with some major oak notes and tartness that resembles granny smith apples. Light acidic vineagar note before the dry, woody finish.

Bottle: Golden, slightly dirty and cloudy, large white frothy head, fairly nice lacing, very strong carbonation. Tart floral nose, wheaty, smells fantastic. Moderately tart up front, quite dry, long lingering wheaty sourness, woody. Fairly clean, slight citrus sweetness on the exit that includes a little bit of rind, remains fairly woody. Big in body, nice airy/bubbley mouthfeel. Very enjoyable.

Clear effervescent gold with a large white head. Sour apples, cider like aroma. Strong tart fruity flavour, nicely sour with noticable alcohol in the finish. Some background barnyardyness. Champagne like, but of course much better. Very good.

Thanks to Eyedrinkale for bringing and sharing this.
Not sure of the vintage, but definitely an old bottle, likely by several years. Poured an effervescent golden with a white head. Tart farmhouse aroma. Taste is horse blanket and lots of dry toffee; not a whole lot of sourness to this one. Definite dusty character as well. Very drinkable lambic.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 375ml bottle from Pitfield Beer Shop. Hazy gold colour with thin white head. Sourness is evident with lemon and grapefruit and a bit farmyardy. Some nice citric hop. Alcohol gives the sourness balance in mouth, but doesn’t suffer from any burn. Finish has some sourness and dryness. Good lemon and grapefruit finish. Enjoyable 3.9/5.0 I must have been off my tits in 2005, this is so much better than a 3.9. Lemon farmyard aroma, just more or less perfect in mouth. Bitter, sour hoppy finish. Gorgeous.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2007 No# 83. My first full bottle of geuze all to myself. Aroma is totally wild, White grapes, baby sick, onions maybe? Taste has the same white grapes with a well balanced sourness, not overpowering. Very refreshing beer. RERATING: Noticeably fuller than the oude geuze when having them head to head, and maybe even some alcohol as it warms in the finish. But alround an increadibly complex and amazing beer. RERATE: Gettin better everytime. A gueuze that makes me all silly and stupid.

Great lasting head. Special smell and taste of medicine or bitter buds? Sour taste of milk.
