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.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2006
This was something new and different for me. I had absolutly no idea what to expect when I cracked the bottle. Poured a golden colo, big white head. Aroma of sour apple, yeast. The mouth feel was great, kind of a sticky sour that just coated your mouth as it went down. This was my first real foray into unique belgian beers, up unitll this one I had only tried doubles, tripels, and quads from some of the well known brewers, but this really blew my mind.

375ml Bottle, Best By 26/01/2025

Golden/amber starts mostly clear (finishes mostly hazed) with a longstanding white head and persistent effervescence. Aromas are interesting but mostly unappealing: sour apple, armpit/funk, basement, Limburger cheese. (I still can’t understand high aroma numbers from raters that detect "barnyard" and "horse manure" scents as seen below & next page.) Acidic in nose, mouth & stomach. Fluffy mouthfeel. Starting with brief metallica, the flavor is thoroughly tart with some fruitiness and a dry, sometimes salty finish.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2006
The beer after it pardon and decanting from the 375ml green bottle sets in the glass a beclouded deep amber with a portly and creamy light tan head, after its erosion, the lace forms a tight girdle upon the glass. Nose is that of a wet farmyard, grassy, musky, with a bit of sweetness backed by a citrus like tartness, start is lightly sweet with an immediate sourness at the back, the mouth feel light to medium. Finish is ferine in its acidity, the tartness lingers long, dry as a bleached desert bone and another excellent example of the Gueuze Lambic, a real treat I must say.

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2011 yummy. poured into a baileys glass--the closest thing i have to a tumbler. aroma of sour apple juice, and barnyard yeast--a smell i have grown to love. mouthfeel is champagne like but this beer has so much more going on than any sparkling wine i have ever tasted. more apples, yeast, acidity in the palate. absolutely delectable. very well balances and just a pleasure to consume.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2006
Bottled at the Derby CAMRA summer festival 2005. It’s got everything going on; hazy body, exploding yeast in a farmyard for a nose, a sourness that dances across your tounge rather than turning your gums up. Best bottle of the day.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JAN 23, 2006
Apple juice coloured clear body with little acid, large creamy beige head. Strong apple, peach, peer, alcohol, leaves in the aroma. Sour flavour, fruits, cheese, vivid mouthfeel.

JonMoore (1963) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 18, 2006
Bottle. Hazy amber colour with a large white head. Huge aroma of sour champagne, with some cheese/barnyard in the background. Flavours are sour, fruity, some sweetness - it’s like an idealised form of champagne - although one shouldn’t cheapen this magnificent beer by comparison to that inferior offering. Complex and well balanced. Outstanding.

Mmm lambic. More of these should definitely be available darn it. Very thick off white head. Cloudy amber colored body. There’s really not a ton of difference between this beer and the other Boon Gueze. This one is perhaps a bit drier, less sweet. It really is uncanny how much these beers taste of champagne (at least in terms of the palate). I’ll always be a fan of the Lambik style.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2006
quite a tasty lambic i must say...a typical gueze appearance...very hazy yellowish body with aerated, white head....aroma is huge in tart cherry, yeast, and leather....the flavor and palate will kick your ass! the sour nature of the beer will tear your tastebuds apart...very yeasty and musty flavor, but has added hints of grapes and citrus

12.7 fl oz bottle via trade with FlacoAlto - Thanks Sebastian! Pours amber/golden fairly clear with a whispy offwhite head that stays around a while. Lots of sediment as I got to the bottom of the bottle so i can’t give it a 5 for appearance.. Aroma is yeast, cheese, and some citrus fruit. Flavor is more on the fruity side. Some definite sourness there, some cherry and maybe even a touch of lemon, some apple there too... Sour but not nearly as much so as I would have guessed that it was going to be. Palate is very champagne like, spritzy with a great dry finish... My mouth watered from the sourness all through it but it watered for more when I got to the bottom of the glass... I can’t believe I waited this long to try the style.. It is quite tasty and unique and I can honestly say that I liked it.. Thanks Sebastian for opening the way for a new style for me...
