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.

500mL bottle. Pours like champagne. Or ginger ale. Depends on your mood. Ok, I admit it, I made the mistake of drinking this right out of the fridge. Not a good idea. Very dry and tart when itís cold. However, when itís close to room temperature, itís pretty damn good, and complex. Sweet across the tip of your tongue. Sweet with citrus, banana, honey and spice from cloves. Tart apples and grapefruit greet the back of your throat, which leads to a tart dry finish. Thereís a nice farmhouse mustiness throughout. The aroma stays remarkably constant throughout the temperature change. Itís obviously musty with horseblanket and a little cheese, but thereís also sweetness from banana and apple and a yeasty/spicyness. Iím still new to the lambic thing, but I think Iím getting the hang of it.

Thanks to JPDIPSO for sending this. Pours a cloudy peach color with a thick bubbly white head. Strong and very interesting aroma of apples and cheese, it feels tart and musty. The flavor shows apples and cheese, itís tart and acid with some mustyness. All the elements fit very well together and they are supported by a light and dusty palate, the carbonation is lively and contributes in giving the flavors a little push and shove. This is a truly excellent gueuze.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 Glowing peach yellow. Aroma is strong with ethers and hexane, backed with figs, cherries and apples. Starts very sour and puckery, with some rubbery sugars. A dose of must. Melds into an almond fruity mellowness. Foams strongly in the mouth. My first Lambic, too sour for me. Best aspect is sugary light lemon aftertaste. Improves towards bottom of bottle, with a little warm, a hint of nice alcohol and a more reduced sourness.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - AUG 1, 2005
Bottle. Nose-notes of light geuze and cork. Taste-light citrus, malt, some lingering sweetness. Not bad but it is not as poweful as I would like.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2005
(Bottle 37,5 cl) Hazy, orangey golden beer with a fairly decent head. Tart and citrusy indeed, but for a traditional gueuze this is almost smooth and soft and almost easy to drink. But then of course it hasnít got quite the same complexity as the more extreme gueuzes. Still an experience though. 110700

leaparsons (8726) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2005
Hazy orange and brown with a small off-white head. Aromas are tart citrus with light cheesy mustiness, quite agricultural. Flavours are initially melllow fruitiness followed by lemon and unripe apple tartness. Some mustiness - but not to the aromaís extent. Fairly dry on the finish. Very decent.

zach8270 (3801) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUL 4, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2008 [bottle - corked and caged 375 ml] Clear amber pour with lots of carbonation. Almost like champagne. Very slight champagne-like aroma of apples, yeast and acidic fruits. Very acidic flavor that begins with a taste of apples and then goes quickly to a warming and dry flavor with hints of straw, apple cores, wood and earthy notes. Very good.
