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.

In tulip from 375ml bottle. Great effervescent head that reminded me of a sparkling wine, and, a tart but refreshing nose. A little bit of wild yeast funk, but, rather mellow with only enough tart to make it refreshing. By no means overpowering; a nice mellow but interesting beer. My only wish it was a bit warmer (drank it right out of the cooler). Definitely one for cellar temp.

mariuspoenari (1288) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 17, 2016
37cl bottle. Clear pale orange pour with a tall white head and visible strands of carbonation. Smells like baking soda, lemon zest, barnyard funk, rotten leaves and mould. The taste follows the same notes, with some added grapes, white wine and gooseberries. Dry, moderately sour and lightly bitter, with a medium body, high carbonation and a sour refreshing aftertaste.

375ml bottle. Pours hazy orange golden with a beautiful creamy white head. Aroma is lactic acidity, yeast, light lemony aroma, funky notes, light mineral hint. Taste is similar, excellent balancement of the sour component, rich funkyness, very easy to drink. Medium body, lively carbonation. Excellent.

I loved the colour of this. I knew I’d like it as soon as I poured and smelled. Overwhelming citrus on the nose and certainly on the taste buds. It’s very sour and given I love sour drinks it’s right on the money for me. I’ll be buying a lot more of this.

Bottle sample tasted at BBF Lab Madrid 2016 on the 02/07/2016. Pours a hazy orange colour with a quickly dissipating bubbly head. Aroma of grapes, flowers, citrus and hay. Taste is of grass, caramel and tart. Oily mouthfeel, very low carbonation. Next one please!

07/06/2016 - 37,5cl bottle @ Brik Brak, Brussels. Hazy yellow with fading white head. Nose is hay, sour, some apple. Taste is sour, some wood, green aplle, very easily drinking. Nice quick refresher but lacks complexity.

ThreeCats (801) - ISRAEL - JUN 7, 2016
Very clear golden color with a big spritzy, but quickly dissipating head. Aroma of white wine, with a strong bret presence. Taste sour but not overpowering. Complex yeast flavours. I’m a big fan of oud bruin, so this was a little one dimensional to me. Very good though.

ComradeK (1100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2016
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy light gold, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Old leather, citrus oil, light raspberry and herbal nettle notes make for a very enticing aroma. Potent sourness up front brings in raspberry and lemon notes. Leathery funk and oak bring complexity to the mid-palate and the finish is cleansing and sour. A complex, strongly sour gueuze. Highly enjoyable.
