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.

Mesjasz (544) - Lodz, POLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Bottle, fresh one. Hazy golden color, white head that quickly disappear. Aroma is barnyard, funk, wet leather, sour grapes, lactic and lemon acidity. Taste is very dry, medium sour, light bitter. Taste is funky, barnyard, leather, hay, light lactic, lemon, hint of wine vinegar. Aftertaste is light tart, light bitter with herbal and citrus flavor. Very tasty stuff.

Hoprider (266) - DENMARK - DEC 17, 2015
Pours a clear deep golden with a two finger foam head that stays a good while. The nose has yeasty tartness, some of these funky qualities that are so hard to describe. Not much lemon but maybe some damp grass, clay or wet rock. Good nose on this one. The taste is good too but a little more harsh with a very drying end. Aftertaste is seriously tart. Everything develops very nicely with time. Good geuze.

The_Osprey (4893) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
37.5cl cork and cage bottle at home, as ’Oud Beersel Oude Geuze Vielle’, 6% BB March 2035. Picked up at the brewery in Beersel. Clear orange, highly sparkling, big foamy white head. Aroma is fabric cushion, musty, toffee apple. Nice balanced aroma. Body is medium, smooth, soft carbonation. Taste is apple peel, elderflower, a touch papery. A little tart and dry, but not what I would call sour. One of the least sour gueuzes I’ve tried. It’s a nice, balanced beer but perhaps not as complex and potent as the style can get.

procraste (391) - FRANCE - DEC 11, 2015
Une acidité assez courte, en pointe. Du raisin blanc acide, du citron bien sûr, du poivre aussi. un nez funky. Très joli gaz fin et long en bouche qui soutient bien les arômes. C’’est plutôt bien même si je ne suis pas trop fan du frutié ici ...

Schwieriges Bier. Ob es gut ist, vermag ich gar nicht auf Anhieb zu sagen, aber sicherlich wird es kein Favorit. Denn ich bin Biertrinker und trinke selten Wein oder Champagner vor. Bei diesem Oude Geuze geht es aber eindeutig Richtung saurem/trockenem Wein/Apfelwein oder Champagner. Hopfen ist fast nicht vorhanden. Sicherlich sehr interessant und ein weiterer Beweis für die Vielfältigkeit von Bier - mein favorisierter Geschmack ist es aber nicht. MHD 2034!

badhack (474) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 19, 2015
Dry, light gold, sour, effervescent carbonation, some pungent mouthfeel. Lightly malty with some fruit and yeast from the bottle conditioning.

cargo150 (1289) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2015
Couleur blonde assez translucide avec une mince mousse blanche assez resistante. En bouche cereales bien acide, agrumes. C’est assez simple mais bien fait. Une gueuze dans la moyenne!

Hazy golden colour. Taste is sour hints of grapes and citrus. Combining nicely with dark chocolate cake.

Maakun (2363) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Slight hazy golden with fizzy white head that leaves a nice film of tiny bubbles. Sour grapes, light fresh green leaves, funk, dank basement, lemon, light herbs and fresh cut wood. Over medium sour and light bitter. Medium bodied with very fizzy carbonation. Very pleasant thought a bit unrifined gueuze.
