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.

Suttree (5266) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2006
Orange, cloudy, with a thin head. Big lemon and white vinegar aroma, plus a hint of mustyness. Citrus dominates the flavor at first, with notes of stone, smoke and dust creeping in. Insanely drinkable. As it warms, more hints of smoke pop up. Really enjoyable.

Lubiere (10490) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2005
Bottle shared with Hunsell at Café Bar Le Duc, ’s Hertogenbosch. Light blond lambic with a creamy white head. Aroma of sour cream and chesse and horseblanket. Puckering sour lambic with aging cave dust and light sour cherries. Rich mix of sour and fruity notes, earthborne flavours from the cave. Excellent. And a steal at 3 euros in a bar. May 1, 2005.

guzzler67 (1529) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 11, 2005
Cloudy, blood orange appearance with some flocculation. Earthy, yeasty, acidic aroma, blending green apples, grapes, leather and mustiness. Complex, shifting taste: tart, sour, grapefruit, bleu cheese just for starters. Reminiscent of a sparkling white wine. Very dry finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 6, 2005
Wispy head, poetic lacing on a pellucid zinc body. The nose is wet and woodsy with ripe cheese and light barnyard. The flavor is musty like damp plank and tart with fluid citric notes. Not overly complex yet finishes in a tobacco and tart fruit tail. Good but not quite world class.

Mungo (2471) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2005
Bottle (from Bitter virtue, BBE 2023). Restrained aromas of musty cellars and cheese with gentler citrusy apple notes and an out of place thin lagery malt which quickly fades. Very gentle tartness which produces an easy going balance. Perhaps lacks the full complexities of some lambics or the more aggresive power but ends up as a great beer to drink rather than be broodily introspective over.

Dorwart (2394) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Huge off-white head of fine bubbles. Dense and creamy on top. Wonderful carbonation. Fruity aroma with sour apples, lemon, oak and maybe a hint of raspberry. Color is a dark apple cider. Sharp and sour flavor. But not a sourness that makes you pucker but the kind of sour that makes your mouth salivate non-stop. More apples, white grape, straw and a bit of lemon. Quite complex. Finish is slightly dry and leaves a long sourness in the mouth. Some pretty damn good stuff.

Bov (9815) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 2, 2005
pours a cloudy copper colour with a nice firm creamy head and a nice lace; powerful and complex aroma of vinegar, grapefruit, hay and acidic cream; notes of cork; solid malt body, very intense sourness; long and dry aftertaste of green apples and vinegar - refreshing, complex and diabolically pleasant

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Lemon, oak, strawberries, some vaguely vinous notes (Grape soda) and acidic funk un the nose. Golden brown body with a thinnish head. Kinda dirty looking but I did pour in all the dregs. Flavor is grapey, funky, lemon, wheat. Quite tart. Nice dry finish. This is nice but I’d rather have a different brand.

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2005
12.7 oz bottle. Pours a clear light copper with a massive billowing fluffy head. Aroma of Granny Smith apples and citrus fruit. Heavily acetic flavor with more Granny Smith apple flavor, lemons, sour patch kids like tartness, some light yeast. Very winelike with a Chardonnay finish minus the butter and oak. Mouthfeel hallmarked by a lively fizziness with a medium body. Nice astringent finish with apple cider notes. Infection perfection.

beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - OCT 10, 2005
Bottle, sorta aubrun coppery pour, fluffly white head that stuck around. Yeasty lemony and light apple aroma. A bit acidic and fairly tart, with a little funk (but not a whole lot), lemons, apples, some spice, yeast. Complex but well balanced. Very tasty.
