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.

Ah, my 1st non-fruited lambic. Strong golden yellow pour, medium pale color. One inch thick true white head that has no intention of leaving. Mad carbonation, this beauty is lively. Funky fruity aroma, fermented peaches and pears with mild banana and some very noticeable tart yeast scents. The mouth feel is sparkling and bubbly at first, but immediately becomes sour. The initial sensations soon vanish into a wonderful dry tartness. Flavor is lightly complex. Fermented musty malt accompanied by tart citrus. Teasingly sweet them bam! A smack of sourness hits you, which is surprisingly crisp. I also picked up on a hint of celery along with many other earthy tastes. Dry, very dry with a nice white wine quality. Wow, this is one unique style for sure.

From the bottle at Bruxellensis. Hazy gold with lasting off white head. Some sourness on aroma, really quite drinkable, nice grapefruit touches. It’s pretty good. Excellent fruit flavours and not too acidic.

FatPhil (13255) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 5, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 375ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) Light orange, thin head. Aroma is very dry and quite sour. A bit savoury too. Something phenolic and chemical, maybe like cider in some ways. Grapefruit and apricot on later tasting. Taste is mindblowing. Dry dry cider - apples, phenols, oak. Powerful but mellow.

bottle - Pours yellow with a two finger white head. The aroma is of wild yeast and tart grapes. The flavor is tart with plenty of funky wild yeast and a little fruit (white grapes?). It’s fairly light bodied and has a very dry finish. I enjoyed this one though for me it didn’t reach the level of their Kriek.

doublebock (551) - California, USA - AUG 31, 2007
Golden color. Extreme carbonation. Thick soapy and foamy white head. Champagne like aroma. Taste is sharp and tart that surrounds the tongue with some sweet cherry-apple like fruitiness. Smooth finish.

Enjoyit (3752) - Vadum, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2007
Pale yellow of color with a small white head. An aroma of vinegar, sour, bitter apples and notes of flowers. A flavor of vinegar, oak and sour. A nice and easy gueze.

Christian (12619) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2007
Orange with a small white head. leather, barnyard, wood aroma. Flavour is like a slightly simpler Cantillon, not exceptional, but absolutely not bad either

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Poured a deep orange color with brownish hues. Thin large-bubbled head dissipates quickly. Lactic tartness present with a sweet grainy aroma. Not a ton of funk, but a decent aroma. Nice palate, not too thin or overcarbonated. Taste is dry throughout, with a tart bready start that gives way to a sharp dry sour finish. A nice finish, but I’d like a larger funk component to it. Interesting to move around the gueuze category a bit after having a few of the ones with high standing.

Tranquillity (1771) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 17, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 Bottle @ Pikkulintu, Helsinki. Great aroma of green apples and citrus. Pale hazy with a beige head. Taste mellow apple juice, not too dry. Very fancy finish.
