Buonissima gueuze, bella da vere con il suo color arancio con sfumature dorate, al naso è dolce, maltata con delle note acide discrete, in bocca non è mai astringente, anzi, ben equilibrata con note dolci. corpo leggero, carbonazione ben presente,

375 ml bottle. Pours a slightly veiled pale golden with a resilient, thick white head. Aroma is tart, unripe fruit and green apple. Flavor is malty, oldish, some metal and fruits. Finish is tart, some herbal bitterness. Very dry, very oldish and dusty...unripe fruits. Lingering dryness and dustiness. Medium body, average to strong carbonation.

Ferris (5002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2010 - White grape, tart fruity apricot and pear. Cloudy gold with a decent white head. White wine and pear notes dominate, Tart but not too much and quite easy drinking for a Geuze. Very nice.

jphartley (30) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2014
37.5cl Bottle - Sterk Avondverkoop, Amsterdam Typical Geuze aroma, but verging on the floral. Nice bouquet. Flavour is sweet for a geuze, but not too sweet. Just right. Nicely balanced. The bubbles tickle your tongue. Overall I liked this one a lot. For the price (roughly 4 euro) this is great value.

I have had this beer many times over the years. I always enjoyed this Oude Geuze and thought it competed well with all the other common versions of the style. A had a particularly older bottle shared by Infra (maybe about 8 years old) once that did not age well at all. However, I also had a bottle that I aged about the same time and it was not at all as oxidized. This particular rating is for a blind tasting of the beer that was about a 2 year old bottle. It did not score significantly different from Boon Oude Geuze or Tilquin.
