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.

BillHick420 (444) - California, USA - DEC 19, 2012
Pours hazy yellow with a white, dissipating head. Sour, yet fruity nose. Tangy, sour fruitiness with hints of orange, some yeast. Refreshing arrival, and a dry finish. Respectable geuze.

patricks110 (2191) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
A good introductory gueuze with delightfully tart and dry notes. Zest citrus, light floral notes. Earthy and musty with a well balanced bitterness. Overly sweet malt base. Nice golden orange body with a steady, effervescent carbonation stream.

mecafilo (153) - Perugia, ITALY - AUG 29, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 Bottle @ Elfo?s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a clear dark yellow colour, medium persistent white rocky head. Aroma is the usual gueuze, with clear notes of basement aromas, leather and fruit; very composed and elegant. Taste is medium sweet, slightly sour. Little to medium body, watery texture, soft carbonation.

Padron4KM (705) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2015
375 ml bottle, best before 7/03/2032 stamped on label.
Hazy dark golden, thick, fluffy, lasting white head, nice lace.
Aroma is vinous, lemon, green apple,yeast, soft cheese.
Flavor is tart, lemony, green apple, brett. Light sweetness keeping it all reigned in. Not super complex, but still tasty.

Gription79 (2691) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Poured from a 375ml bottle, thanks Mike. Malty, light soreness, oxidized, musty, fruity, cheesy. Solid, but not as tasty as I would have thought for a geuze.
