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.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle. Light yellow body, big fluffy white head, very effervescent. Moderately fruity aroma, yeasty, light barnyard, lemon/grapefruit comes out a lot after taking a sip. (7+) Flavour is lightly sour, very light fruity lemon notes and mild yeast. Spritzy palate is quite light but bubbly. Great aroma leads to a bit of a let down in the overly mild favour. Not too sour, but not much flavour either. 7+/4/6/3/13-14

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2007
[410-20070708] 12.7floz (w/ jerc, tuqueboy). Medium skunky aroma has strange fruity notes mixed with tire rubber. Slightly hazy, light lime yellow body with a long-lasting foamy fluffy white head. Dry yeast flavour holds medium alcohol, light acetone and light citrus peel. Dry light-medium body. Mild as geuzes go, really strange nose on it.

Bottled. SB 23 on cork. Beer is clear, light/medium gold with a small, white, bubbly, mostly and rapidly diminishing head.<P> Aroma is compelling; lean and vivid. Malty with just a trace of toasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate note of lemon, herb; Yeasty with moderate notes of feral barnyard, tart horse blanket; Light note of genuine raspberry, subtle honey.<P>The flavor is lightly sweet, heavily acidic/dry, trace bitter with a long, light/moderately acidic, lightly bittersweet finish. Sweaty note in the retros.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P> Thrilling.

Svesse (7640) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUL 6, 2007
(Bottle, Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 3 July 2007) Hazy brownish amber colour with brief off-white head. Acidic, lactic nose with notes of horse blanket, old socks and blue cheese. Acidic taste with vinegar and cloudberries. Mature, musty, almost woody character. Harsh notes of bitter almonds. Dry, but not super dry. Superb, mature geuze with its own identity. According to the beer list it was a vintage 2000, but nothing on the label confirmed it. At least, the best before date was 2021 (and it will probably be quite nice after that as well).

Nephilium (1617) - Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Poured into a goblet. Pours a clear straw, with a big fluffy white head that fades down to about an eighth of an inch. The aroma is sour apples, a touch of lemon, and a back end of dust. Nice sour flavor, with apples and lemons being the most noticeable. Moderately long finish, very crisp mouthfeel. Definitely something I want to pick up some more of, and see how it ages.

mjg74 (2945) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUL 3, 2007
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours a medium amber color with a nice sized off-white head. Aroma is sour and somewhat dusty. A bit of a citric tartness, sort of like a collins mixer. Flavor is quite tart. Nice fruity sourness. Nice intersting brew.

Proteus (98) - FINLAND - JUN 29, 2007
375 ml bottle and a 750 ml bottle. The beer was bottled 2003, a slight difference between the small and the big bottle: whilst the carbonation had almost completely faded in the small, the big bottle’s gueuze had just the right carbonation. The aroma was very sweet and fresh and because of the age it had a familiar cellar-like aroma. The taste was heavenly, a bit sour and balanced with a hint of apple. Definately worth a long time storage!

WeeHeavySD (3365) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 23, 2007
375ml bottle @ Hamilton’s. Pours orange with a bright white ring head. Aroma is big full of funk and vineagar. Farm funk, sour, acidic aroma. Taste is big bold, other worldly and full of acidic funk. I feel like I can tell a good gueze from a bad gueze, but amongst good guezes i’m not sure if I can fully discern difference. Full mouth sticky palate overall great full flavors nice to know that the taste of a great gueze can come at any point in a night of drinking.

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2007
Pours a slightly cloudy orange with a small white head. Very fruity acidic smell. Some lemons and citrus fruit. The taste was fairly acidic but nothing overpowering. A little bit tart. Lemons and citrus fruit abound. Its a nice gueze, very refreshing and easy to drink. Nice sour aftertaste in the finish. Excellent gueze.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JUN 16, 2007
375ml bottle. Clear amber with a huge head. Fair lacing. Aroma was sour, with hints of white wine and citrus. A tangy, sour taste that you can feel all the way down your throat and into your stomach. Funky horseblanket sour with a bit of dust. Tangy texture, dry finish. Great stuff.
