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.

vyvvy (5892) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 30, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2008 Pours orange with large dense light beige head. The aroma is tart, sour, grainy, funky, citric, tannin and with wild yeast - lots going on here. Light crisp body with light stinging sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with lots of graininess with a heavy sour kick, lots of yeast and intensified lemon aspects. The finish has some oak added in. There is a lot of crazy complexity going on and I’m not sure how to really describe it, but I do know I give this beer an enthusiastic Thumbs Up . (8/3/8/3/17 - 3.9)
Rerate notes - Let this get much warmer than initial notes and the flavors opened up a lot with a cheese-like mustiness and horseblanket. The palate was much softer with gentle soft carbonation. The flavors from the initial notes were still there, but when blended with the new aspect it increases the complexity and enjoyability a lot. A great gueuze.

DarkMagus (504) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2007
Clear golden-yellow color with a bubbly head that fades away quickly. Insanely funky, musty aroma with some woodiness, a light sourness, and a mysterious "bad but good" sort of thing. Flavors were mouthwateringly sour, musty, fruity, woody, and a bit cheesy. Highly carbonated and fizzy, but soft and champagne-like mouthfeel. Very, very dry finish. Great stuff, really enjoyable. I need more.

Clear yellow color, with a few fine bubbles. Aroma is complex, acidic.. almost like green apples. Incredible, funky flavors. Crisp, dry finish. Very full bodied. Outstanding.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 28, 2007
Rich grainy/sour aroma. The balance of sour and grain is just right. Not too tart.

DMRz (230) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2007
Sweet intensely earthy aroma. Sweet and sour flavor that ends with sour yeast. While gueuze is not my favorite style, this is quite tasty.

Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2007
From notes 1 week old. Served in a flute glass. Slightly cloudy pale gold in color, with a perpetually replenishing head. Aroma is tart, distinctly dusty, and lemony. The flavor on this one just ’pops’, starting with an effervescent carbonation sting turning quickly to a tart, dry sourness. Lemon-sour finish. Light bodied.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007
Overall a very wellbalanced and easy to drink Oude Gueze. Aroma is sharp and sour, in a refreshing way. Nice balanced sourness in the flavor aswell with notes of citrus. Not overly complex but again, a good introduction to the style.
