Geuze is a classic among the Belgian Ales, following spontaneous fermentation in wooden barrels (no yeast or sugar added), young and old Lambic are blended; which results in a dry, tart and fruity wine like taste. Oud Beersel Geuze Ale is the white sparkling wine of the ale world.

skortila (4801) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2004
Dusty, oaky, citrus aroma. Cloudy, orange coloured with a lasting white head. Taste is tart, quite sweet for a gueuze in good balance with some bitterness. perhaps slightly too sweet. Green apples, citrus and oak. Very dry palate. Pleasant and refreshing. Easy drinking.

MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2004
Very strong aroma of cellar, wood and dust. Quite bitter and dry. The flavour is very sour and dry. Highly carbonated. A very fresh brew and a really good geuze.

Cloudy amber (I may have decanted some of the yeast, but I thought I was careful). The head is thin and fleeting. The first burst of the aroma is the smell you get after having just bitten into a green apple. Under that is cheeze and hay that has sat in storage for too long. The apples carry into the flavor, but instead of the green apples, it changes more like a cider apple. Very fruity, but there’s not the harsh sour punch I was expecting of something like Cantillon. The tartness here is a part of a balanced, but complex, flavor instead of the dominating characteristic. A very drinkable gueuze.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2004
Cloudy gold/yellow with good head and great lacing. Small bubbles that make it very creamy looking. The nose is not as sour as other gueuze beers I have tried. Nice and creamy with a sour/dry oaky finish.

unclebleen (620) - California, USA - JUN 8, 2004
Pours a nice looking amber color with lively carbonation and a big white head. Good lacing. Aroma is sour grapes, apples and some barnyard. The flavor is excellent. Sour cheese with all sorts of stuff going on in my mouth. Body is dry. What a great Gueuze.

Well, this was just fine and dandy, but following the Cantillon gueuze it just seemed that all was diminished. I enjoyed the Cantillon for the bolder, more assertive flavor, but was very glad to have tried both and have seen just how wide the difference was.

My first of this style and I really enjoyed it. Sharp tartness in aroma and flavor with a dry mouth. Very good.

madsberg (10608) - Søborg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2004
Bottled @ Delirium Cafe, Brussels: Golden coloured. Unclear. Off white lasting and dense head. Good sharp sourness in the aroma. Tart, very acidic and loads of earth notes. Very dry flavour. Has some light fruity notes. Has sharp acidic notes on a nice earth base. Dry sharp sour and fruity aftertaste. This is a really good one, that concludes my 8 days adventure in Brussels and Bruges. The following months will be dedicated to some of the 25 beers I had with me home.

Bottle from Only Fine Beer (Bottles’ website). Deep, blooming orange, with a towering, cloud-like white head. One of the best looking beers I’ve ever seen. Superb aroma - tart, fresh, sour and malty sweet. Marvellously, deliciously brilliant beer!! Hits the tastebuds with a fruity, flavour packed burst: orange, pineapple, then a sour wave, which slides over the tongue, and into the throat letting go before the onset of any harshness. Perfectly balanced. The best gueuze (or geuze) I’ve had.
