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.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Rated 8/3/07. Bottle at Redlight Redlight. Courtesy boboski. Cloudy, yellow-gold body with the thinnest, faintest film of white micro-bubbles on the surface. Leaves behind a snake-like lacing. The aroma is a very dank, dusty, yeasty, farmhouse-like smell that is actually oddly appealing. The flavor has quite a bit of sour lemon, grapefruit, and sour apple. Its very reminiscent of a crisp Sauvignon Blanc. There is clearly alot of ascorbic acid in there, which undoubtedly accounts for the sourness. On the light side of medium bodied, with a clean, lip-smacking finish. Very nice for my first experience with geuze.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2007
Corked bottle from Flaco Alto. Thanks! Pours clean, lively cheddar orange with a nice off-white head. Aroma is cozy barnyard with nutmeg and coriander in there as well. Slight bit of apple in the fragrance. Flavor is sour lemon and lime, with a touch of sour orange and apple. Very mouth puckering finish. Nice, clean mouthfeel. Great gueuze.

voota (765) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2007
Cloudy golden with a big fluffy white head. Smooth aroma, lots of oak, citrus and funk... but still very clean. Medium body, sharp acidity. Smooth flavours of citrus... really hard to tell what I’m picking up in this beer, a problem I usually have rating Gueuze in general. Its just tart and ridiculously quaffable.

downender (7925) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2007
Bottle. Near orange coloured with a rocky white head. Aroma of yeast, grapefruit and honey. Plenty of acidity in the mouth with a flavour of bitter lemon and summer fruits. Very good, but not my favourite gueuze.

LordCorkscrew (1774) - Ronco Scrivia (GE), ITALY - JUL 23, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2007 Bevuta a casa di Sergio che ce l’aveva in cantina: ottima gueuze (o meglio geuze?) però un poco più blanda di quella del Cantillon secondo me. Slurp

Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Courtesy from Robo @ Knightly Spirits. Poured orangey-gold with big chunks and 1 inch thick head that held firm for 32 seconds. Decent lace. The aromas of citrus, vinegar, and skunk enveloped my room. Tastes include sour yeast, green apple, fruity white wine, musty skunk, with a little soy. Aftertaste is huge with sour citrus. High carbonation and prickly fiz on the palate. Good stuff.

jercraigs (9836) - 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 (8640) - 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.

luckygirl (1223) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2007
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 (7850) - 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).
