COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

more agressive, sharp, effervescent and foaming, sour and a range of farmhouse aromas. a compelling brew

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 1, 2002
Big granny smith apple nose. Palate is light and bone dry with a touch of iron and quenching acidity. Similar to a sparkling fino sherry. I expected a little more barnyard flavors.

2000: Spicy and sweet with a distinctive glue taste. It did have the thickest head out of the fest. Dry finish.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - OCT 21, 2002
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2003 Tart and complex, horseblanket, fresh manure, old cobwebs, citric, hints of pepper and wine grapes. Lord, it's a tragedy that this is gone for good!

DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 15, 2002
UPDATED: APR 7, 2003 sweaty cheese, citric howls and barnyard leather in the nose..cloudy orange with a stable white covering...the sourness is there but it doesn't tweak your mind..its subtle but powerful at the same time..very woody, cheesy, leathery..lots of oak notes and although its a very tasty gueuze..i think it could use more tartness and a stronger brett profile.

Oakes (12723) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2002
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2009 Hazy beige-amber, but with some sparkle. Thin head. The aroma has the usual cork/leather/horseblanket stuff, plus a nice herbal overtone (sage, savoury) and lots of wood as well. It starts cheesy, with some slight phenolic notes, has a malty but firm middle. The finish is semi-sweet for a gueuze, fairly cheesy, and with only a little bit of tartness. Very approachable.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2002
Leather and cork in the aroma and the acidic smell that warns of a tartness to follow. Complex body with hints of leather, finishes tart. Very nice geuze.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 6, 2002
Cloudy look, small head. Extremely strong lemony citrusy flavours. A bit one dimensional and not for everyone.

Once you get through the huge meringue-like head there a pleasant champagne-like nose. Extremely fizzy. Citrusy, slightly fruity taste but mostly sour. Kinda herbal in the end. Very vinous overall. Man, what pressure in the bottle: I wasn’t even done untwisting the wire clasp and the cork shot out, hit Yogi_Beera in the head, then off the lamp before landing safely atop the kitchen cabinet. Powerful stuff!
