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.

Hazy golden beer with a thin white head, amazing sour wooden grapefruity aroma and taste, the sourness hits your tastebuds. makes a homerun and stays to celebrate in your mouth for quite a bit. Amazing.

2007 vintage shared by Nate pours hazy pale orange with small fading head. Nose is incredible musty citrus funk, hay, barnyard, straw, cereal. Taste is bright crisp tart lemon, lime, woody funk, hayfield. Finish is sour lemon, lime, grapefruit, dank funky barrel, a bit of acidity on the tail end. Fantastic!

750 ml to taster (shared by blomster). Looks good; a hazy orange with off-white lacing. Smells like funky baby shit, but in the best of ways. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Good beer.

kermis (4293) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 27, 2014
Bottle shared 2007 vintage, finally getting to try this beer. Pours hazy golden amber with an off white head. Aroma of dank cellar, cobwebs, barnyard, light horse blanket, tart fruits and light wood. Flavour is light sweet and moderate acidic. Soft in the palate with a beautiful subdued tart fruitiness and soft perfectly balanced funk. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Simply amazing. Awesome.
