4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear to hazy gold from the bottle depending on when you pour and how much yeast is mixed around, bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to leave moderate lace. Aroma of funky brettanomyces notes, hints of wood, subtle acidity, light fruitiness. Taste follows, so much going on its hard to pick out all the flavors. Awesome, especially when the blender pours it for you.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Really nice aroma of funky peaches and lemons, with excellent translation of these into flavors that are not overly acidic or too heavily carbonated. A cut above Cantillon Classic, in my opinion.

At the MBR Sour Beer tasting. Thanks to whoever brought it! Murky yellow-golden body. Citric, funky, fresh aroma with a light malty touch. Bitterish citric not too sour clasically funky taste, light sweetish touch. Interesting, balanced Oude Geuze that did not disappoint!

UPDATED: SEP 4, 2016 75cl, jan 2009 bottling. Opens with a big plop, big gusher! First glass is mostly foam. On to the second... Pours a hazy orange with bubbly head. A: mellow and fruity sourness, nice tart maltiness, lime, melon. T: follows aroma, very manageable tartness in beginning. Malts and fruity tones in development, mostly melon, lime, light sour apple note. Nice bitter finish with orange and melon tones. Very accessible, fruity, yet delicious. High carbonation makes it a heavy drink though.

Bardzo klasyczny aromat skóry, ziemi, siana, agrestu, winogron i cytryny. Smak średnio kwaśny, wytrawny i z lekką goryczką ziołową.

De Cam oude Geuze ’13 Vintage consumed on 160708
Pours a clear amber-orange color with a bubbly, medium head, which turns out to be unusual stable.
Smells of a profound funkiness, entangled into dried apple peel and dusty, old oak. Has a mineralic stony quality with wet mushrooms and a flowery grassiness to it. White bread and sour lemon pulp compliment both to the pungent funk in this, establishing an awesome, aromaful nose, which is hard to compare to any of the other Lambic.
Has a lively but fitting carbonation and an utmost refreshing light body, revealing tons of flavor nuances. This creates an ever developing taste, which focusses throughout on its taste defining sourness.
Tastes of moldy earth, old apple peel, wet stones and a juicy lemony whiff. The lemon turns more flavorful after this initial stage, opening up the palate to a well dosed sourness, defining the flavors without getting close to numbing the tongue. Apple gets a tad sweeter during the finish with an aqueous softness, wrapped up by crisp lemon peel.
Drinks very nice, full of fruit supported funk with a bright, soft finish, soothing the sourness without loosing any character. Moldy, matured white wine characteristics get combined with crisp lemon and create an inciting potential.

375ml Bottle, 2009 vintage. A hot day like today calls for a refreshing lambic so I cracked my 2009 Oude Geuze from De Cam.
6.5% and a crystal clear deep gold with an incredible nose of oak, lemon, ripe bananas(?), and a peppery/woodsy funk.
Medium bodied with a sharp carbonation and a dry finish.
The taste is tart, acidic, tannic oak, white pepper and very dry. Man this hits the spot. If you’re a fan of lemonade on a hot day then grab a geuze to enjoy.

On draft at the Sovereign in Georgetown. Pours a clear light copper with an off white head. Woody, musty aroma. Flavors of bandaids, dank straw and tart apple. Yum.
