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.

A case of this just showed up on the shelves, although iím not sure if this is still made. Pours a hazy orange with a smooth white head that stays forever. Very bretty aroma, lots of dry straw, barn kinda smells and the sour acidic nose that you would expect from a geuze. The thing i really like about Oud Beersel is they donít have a overwhelming sourness, much more palatable and refreshing than others. Very carbonated and dry, with some nice tart fruit esters.

pilsnerrogge (2514) - FinspŚng, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2005
Light brown/orange colour. Thick head. Acidic barnyard-aroma. Well-balanced apple-sourish flavour with a nice raisin-sweetness lurking in the background.

PorterPounder (5607) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Callandro Supermarket, Baton Rouge, La. - 12.7 oz botle. Pours a murky medium golden with a long lasting fluffy, airy white head. Aroma of a bottle wine left open for a day, a bit of spice - ginger perhaps. Nice sourness, that is puckering, but in a pleasant way. Has a bit of a winey essence to it and some sour cherry notes. Mouthfeel is sour and puckering. Very decent Gueze.

marcus (6606) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 27, 2005
This orange-colored lambic ale poured with a nice white head, eliciting a sour, fruity aroma. The initial flavor is also sour and fruity with a very dry finish. This is a perfect drink fo recuperate from yard work on a hot summer day.

Cloudy light orange color. Thick and lasting white head. Sour aroma with a hint of grapes and cheeses. Flavor is sour but not gut wrenchingly so and thereís an interesting earthy flavor in there as well. Enjoyable beer for slow drinking. Expiration date says best before 2025 so I think Iíll let a couple of these age for awhile.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Pours light orange with nice white head, made up of tiny bubbles. Aroma is very sour, tiny bit of vinegar and musty (maybe the cheesy smell people have listed. Carbonation is just right. Flavor is very sour and tart, but very dry in the finish. Some fruity character I canít pinpoint, either real sour apples or lemon peel.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Bottle. Sour, musty/dirt (a sandy loam)dusty malt aroma. Dark amber color - slightly cloudy with giant head that quickly collapses. Moderate tart malt flavor - not puckeringly sour - mustiness apparent throughouth with the slightest hint of sweetness. Well blended - no flavor tends to overpower this lambic. A nicely drinkable brew.

Murjy, golden pour. Smells of mushrooms, earth, cheese, and other bizarre scents i canít put my finger on. Pretty acidic, and dry mouth feel. Bitter, and rather grapefruity taste, but not much of a pungent after taste. I rather enjoyed this after getting past the smell.

This is the new Boon-brewed stuff, which was in abundance at Supersaver, so I picked some up. Yes, I like it. I am coming to realize that my problem with lambics stems mostly from expecting all of them to be like Cantillons, and that Cantillon pretty much has flooded the market in many places. But see, I donít really like that extreme degree of sourness. I like my sour medium, mixed with noticeable malt and noticeable funk. Drinking Cantillons is a chore I donít have patience for unless Iím going slow to rate one. But THIS, this I could drink every day, and I am glad to have found a real lambic that has kicked me over my concerns about liking this style.

Pours a hazy grey-yellow with a soft yet crackly-sounding white head. Aroma of dirt, hay, stones, nuts, sprouts, and cheese. Taste a delicious mix of refreshing (not overpowering) sourness, light notes of funk, and lots of chewiness from the malt, including some ítypicalí beer notes such as floral overtones. Refreshing and delightfully drinkable.
