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.

tart is dominant, some citruses, some gentle hay, wheat. too gentle aromas. pale, clear, white foam, minimal head. perfect. medium sourness, some citruses, not much else. light body, slick feel, nice fluffiness from the wheat, nice lively carbonation. finish is gentle and smooth. I’ve had much better.

DandyWolfFloyd (987) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Aroma - funk, barnyard, spiced wheat, and sweat. Appearance - the body starts a clean Mikado yellow, with good nucleation. Further pours add a cloudiness as the yeast is poured in. The head is about 2" and white, and settles into a film of foam. Taste - is tart and funky. There is a definite salty, somewhat sweaty, some horse blanket, and a little cheese. White flesh fruit, pretty dry in the taste. Palate - between light and medium body, the texture is dry and champagne like, lively carbonation, dry funky and tart finish.

DerGantzel (261) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2016
Fresh floral, citrus aroma. Clear and pale with a fine head. Medium sweetness and light bitterness in harmony with medium-high sourness. Soft lively carbonation, full body. Very good geuze!

Rask0lnikov (435) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 15, 2016
Pale yellow colour. Medium head. Grass, vinegar, wood again. Funky, grassy, woody at first. Bit of vinegar. White wine and even slight oakie sweetness in the end. Really refreshing and enjoyable experience.

KoNrRiI (1036) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 7, 2016
0.375 bottle. Hazy, gold color with a small, white head and a yeasty suspension just beneath it. Aroma is very acetic, apple, lemon, tart citruses, and some hay. Taste is sour to the bone, fruity, citric, acetic, somewhat vinous. A medium body, a slick texture, and a fizzy carbonation. Finish is obviously sour, fruity, vinegar makes an appearance. Overall, despite all the aforementioned, unsavory-sounding flavors the beer is splendid; its sourness does not offend and the entire experience is pleasant.

Bawelt (375) - Lyon, FRANCE - JAN 25, 2016
Pas mon style de prédilection mais reste incroyablement agréable, d’une buvabilité à toute épreuve. Nez très léger et vivant : du blé à mort, des fruits légers du verger, de la paille. La bouche est assez sèche, acide biensur, équilibrée et part sur un cidre assez noble mais pas agressif.

Ottima gueuze, non do il massimo perché ce ne sono di migliori ma ha un ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo.
