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.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 Glowing peach yellow. Aroma is strong with ethers and hexane, backed with figs, cherries and apples. Starts very sour and puckery, with some rubbery sugars. A dose of must. Melds into an almond fruity mellowness. Foams strongly in the mouth. My first Lambic, too sour for me. Best aspect is sugary light lemon aftertaste. Improves towards bottom of bottle, with a little warm, a hint of nice alcohol and a more reduced sourness.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Bottle. Nose-notes of light geuze and cork. Taste-light citrus, malt, some lingering sweetness. Not bad but it is not as poweful as I would like.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Hazy, orangey golden beer with a fairly decent head. Tart and citrusy indeed, but for a traditional gueuze this is almost smooth and soft and almost easy to drink. But then of course it hasn’t got quite the same complexity as the more extreme gueuzes. Still an experience though. 110700

leaparsons (9543) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Hazy orange and brown with a small off-white head. Aromas are tart citrus with light cheesy mustiness, quite agricultural. Flavours are initially melllow fruitiness followed by lemon and unripe apple tartness. Some mustiness - but not to the aroma’s extent. Fairly dry on the finish. Very decent.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle - corked and caged 375 ml] Clear amber pour with lots of carbonation. Almost like champagne. Very slight champagne-like aroma of apples, yeast and acidic fruits. Very acidic flavor that begins with a taste of apples and then goes quickly to a warming and dry flavor with hints of straw, apple cores, wood and earthy notes. Very good.

Oud Beersel used to be one of the better real gueuzes, but this brewery unfortunately closed down some 2 years ago. Some bottles are still available in specialised Brussels beer shops, as the stock of gueuze in casks has been put into bottles. A loss for the gueuze beer lovers!

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2005
A case of this just showed up on the shelves, although i’m not sure if this is still made. Pours a hazy orange with a smooth white head that stays forever. Very bretty aroma, lots of dry straw, barn kinda smells and the sour acidic nose that you would expect from a geuze. The thing i really like about Oud Beersel is they don’t have a overwhelming sourness, much more palatable and refreshing than others. Very carbonated and dry, with some nice tart fruit esters.

pilsnerrogge (2755) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2005
Light brown/orange colour. Thick head. Acidic barnyard-aroma. Well-balanced apple-sourish flavour with a nice raisin-sweetness lurking in the background.
