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.

karpik (466) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 7, 2016
Aroma of lemon, barnyard, horse blanket. Pours golden with tall white head. Taste is medium sour, tart with lemon, funky and vinegar. No bitterness at all. Overall very refreshing and quite easy to drink lambic.

bg80 (84) - California, USA - APR 3, 2016
Bottle. Champagne-like fizz and aromas. Sticky lacing and big head. Pleasant tart acids and grapefruit-like bitterness. Not quite as sharp as some others. Also distracting iron-like metallic taste at the finish. Would definitely drink again, but not my favorite.

Dervock (850) - AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2016

islay (2038) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 27, 2016
12.7 oz. bottle, consumed on 3-27-16. “Best before 17.03.2035,” presumably meaning it was bottled on March 17, 2015, making it just over a year old. Labeled as “Oud Beersel Oude Geuze Vieille,” but I’m presuming it’s the same as the one listed here as merely “Oud Beersel Oude Geuze.” Pours an initially clear bronze with many large bubbles and a large amount of uneven, cream-colored head. Hazy and highly effervescent in the second pour. Quite cloudy in the final pour. Looks good in each iteration. Fresh, tart yet sweet, yeasty smell. Lemon poppy seed muffin scent. Lemony and bready smell. Mineral, almost metallic aroma. Quite tart taste. White vinegar and lemon flavors. Funky. Brett eventually comes through. Orange that is a week or two past its prime. Lemongrass. Gin and juice cocktail. Light, sour/dry aftertaste that is very slightly chemical. Light to medium body. Some froth in the palate. Ordinary palate effects. Overall, a nice, likable, and good beer but nothing special. I wish I had let it age for a couple of extra years.

sjogro (2136) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle at Mrk’s. Clear golden with thin white head. Some active lacing. Wet hay, sour grains, unripe grapes. Medium sour, hint of salt. Minerallike texture, medium body, above average carbonation. Quite sparkly, strong minerallike geuze. Pretty nice!

ForlornHope (357) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 18, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours very lively pale amber with a thin, tight white head. Musty aroma, citric and earthy. Taste is initially sweet, then tart. Great balance of sharp, acidic, lemony sherbet. Lively on the tongue due to it’s high carbonation. Crisp and very refreshing. Excellent.

The taste is definitely between ale and sparkling white wine. I’ve had it twice, once on its own and I thought it didn’t taste enough like beer, the second time with a meal and I loved it. So I would say fans of the lambic style would like it on any occasion, while more standard beer drinkers would probably enjoy it more with a meal.
