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.

sweetish cidery nose, a bit leather and hay as well. Amber/orange, champagne pearls, low but stable head. quite subdued flavors - I really had to go looking for them: A bit barnyard, some roses, apples,lemons - but low acidity. Light mouthfeel, even a bit watery. I don't know, somehow this wasn't the big epiphany for me - I think I will let the second bottle sit for a year or two and try again....

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2003 Aroma: Bouquets of roses, with sweet and honey flavors thrown in, also a very strong minty smell Appearance: Slightly cloudy, hibiscus yellow Flavor: Sweet, smooth, with slight carbonation and floral and oak barrel flavors. Also, strong minty flavor, similar to that of toothpaste. Palate: Bubbly, tingling up front and tart in the middle. Overall: Not bad, but expected more.

3fourths (8493) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 1, 2003
Smells fruity and floral, sour and punchy. A slightly ruby-orange, hazy appearance. Dry, light and crisp, stinging the lips and sour throughout with the usual lemon and medicine (band aid) flavors. Nice, but average.

caesar (5640) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2003
Probably the best gueuze i've had. Golden color, medium white head. Aroma is old gueuze, oak, apple, melon. Bit sweet, bit sour taste, maybe a bit more watery not as sticky taste and palate as some other gueuzes like the Girardin.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2003
Murky golden/orange hue, frothy white head. Aroma was earthy with notes of sour apples, yeast, lemon, and horseblanket. Flavor was fruity up front with much sourness behind that, followed by earthy flavors and some oak. Lively mouthfeel, with a sour and dry finish.

hopscotch (9996) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 15, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2014 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Really murky, peach-colored beer. Tons of yeast floating around. The nose is of lemons, straw, leather and is very vinous. Earthy, musty, woodsy flavor. Extremely sour on many levels. Lemon peel to finish things off. Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Short, sour finish with yeasty bitterness.

Large white head. Hazy gold/brown color. Sour woody nose. Light body.Fruity, sour apples , acidy, more woodyness coming through. Kinda creamy and prickly on the tongue all at once, WOW! Bone dry, fruity acidic finish is nice. I,m not a Geuze man, er uh i wasnt, till last night. Impressive.

ClarkVV (4058) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 4, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2006 Medium yellow with some gold hues and even some light orange tints, quite hazy. Tons of foamy white head. Smells tart and yeasty. Lots of lemon and some peppery spice aroma. Begins medium tart with some nice dry grainy malt and hops but quickly blooms into a bigger juicy malt and yeast body. Lemon, mild citrus and some spices, with medium carbonation on the palate make for quite a lively beer. Flavor has ample tart lambic flavor but is wonderfully balanced by a sweeter, light candied flavor. Stays very juicy through the finish, with quite a complex finish. Initially has some problems with carbonation and astringency, with quite a bitter palate, but this is much ameliorated by the sweeter sugar flavor and bigger finish, the sugary taste would get a bit cloying if you drank more than one of these, I’d imagine. I really appreciated that the flavor crescendoed as the beer finished and a wonderful aftertaste lingered. Too many beers do quite the opposite. Rerate. Not quite as wonderful as the last bottle. Still a very apple and sulphur nose, which I like, but the flavor tapered off too much towards the end of the glass. Body not quite as hearty as I remembered. Finish gets a bit lost amid water, lightly sweet something, and wheat dryness.

Dry, bready, moss, lemon, oak aroma. Same flavors but soft and round. Fairly subtle example. Hue darkened towards the top. Tasty.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - OCT 25, 2003
Very complex. Slightly mild compared to other top class geuzes. Not very offensive, but still absolutely wonderful.
