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.

Realy bad taste. Prefer Geuze from Hanssens Brewery, which has a better caracter.

canary dog (649) - Rutland, Vermont, USA - FEB 23, 2014
Dull and golden in color with a thick but quickly fading head. Dry and tart, with some obvious apple or pear wine attributes. Finishes very dry and acidic, with a touch of raw bitterness. Quite a nice drink.

Tsestah (16) - Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Un joli colet de fines bulles coiffe le liquide jaune pâle quasi opaque. Le nef est légèrement fruité au début, puis disparait rapidement pour ne laissé que l’acidité à venir au gouter. C’est un oude gueuze, c’est donc d’un goût très complexe, d’abord acide, puis quelque peu fruité. Pensez à des baies renommées surettes, telles les gazelles noires, raisins trop jeunes, sinon pensez à des pommettes vertes... rien de précis cependant. Une bonne oude gueuze.

EdKing (1754) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottlle in Craft Clapham. Clear pale amber, medium bubbly white head. Lots of crisp clarity in the nose - dry, clean, apple skins, green apple sour and tarts, soapy, light apple tannins. On the taste its also very dry, crisp and clean, with light apple skins and tannins, crisp tart sourness, vinous yeast character, only slight funk and horse blanket. Not overpoweringly sour but restrained and very dry.

Tobiasoe (51) - NORWAY - FEB 9, 2014
Off-white head medium to abating over hazy orange beige beer. Medium plus aroma intensity, citrus vinegar, funk, medicinal and herbal notes, faint honey. Pronounced flavour on the palate, tart and sour with medium carbonation, medium minus bodied, hay, grass, unripe apple and funky grapefruit. Smoothing on the midpalate and refreshing but then short, maybe not the acidity as long nor flavour as complex as hoped.

MattiasA (612) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2014
Classig Geuze. Not too extreme with the acidity like some others (3F?) wich is sad for us fanatics but good for the newcomers to lambics.

unclemike (2180) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Hazy beige-amber, but with some sparkle. Thin head. The aroma has the usual cork/leather/horseblanket stuff, plus a nice herbal overtone (sage, savory) 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.

Gueuze molto buona, anche se non straordinaria. All’impatto acido tagliente si aggiungono sensazioni più morbide, con sfumature rustico-terrose che forse sporcano un po’ il gusto. Rimane un ottimo prodotto!

KapitiCritique (345) - Xincheng, Henan Province, CHINA - FEB 3, 2014
Nose; sparkling when opened, yeasty and apple & citrus, some acid and a tad earthy; Appearance: partly cloudy and a hint of gold, good head with minimal lacing; Taste: Sour, big taste, dry, not astringent though; Palate: creamy with clean finish. Overall: drank a second bottle
