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.

Bottled. Pale w/ yeast clumps, fiizzy. Very interesting nose follow by a very off putting fucked up "who pissed beer into my" champagne flavor. Palate had some lingers of that cool foreign nose... but this beers really not for me.

Camons (6260) - Hasselager, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle @ Home, 2012 vintage. Pours light golden with a white head. Aroma of light sourness, barnyard, leather, wine grapes, lemon. Flavor is nicely sour, leather, dusty, wet wood, barn, citrus, lemonpeel, a touch of white sugar-like sweetness. Medium body, soft carbonation, light acidic finish. 2281114

jphartley (25) - 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.

Pyöräkadulla 11/2014. Wine-like fruity taste, quite sour aftertaste. Complex.

ALLOVATE (2459) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2014
Chilled and into a straight-wall Lambic glass. Soft, pastel orange and misted by yeast. Very fine, very intermittent carbonation fares a short lived foam. A white film lasts the length. VInous, plump, beyond dry nose but hinting at Chenin and Chardonnay grape juice, boiled rice, soft phenols, hessian sack and lime coola cordial. Very fruity, very vinous, wine-like with plenty of white wine in the length. lime, lemon, tangy and sour with supple fruit sweetness balancing. Hints at oak, pine, light must in the finish. Lightly spritzy, mouth-filling yet light in body; definitely holds on the palate. This is refreshing, but lacks the depth of the greater spontaneously fermented ales. A great Gueuze for those unfamiliar to the style. (37,5cL, BB 05/11/22[?], The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

Bière légèrement acide, mais pour une geuze, douce. Forte odeure non rance. goût classique de la geuze adouci. Bière très bien équilibré. Parfait pour découvrir la geuze.

Ulysse (88) - Brussels, BELGIUM - NOV 14, 2014
Enjoyable lambic aroma. Not the stinky sweaty type. Abundant gas upon opening the bottle. Just the right amount of acidity for those who don’t enjoy overly acid beer.

pivnizub (9001) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2014
Bouteille: Deep golden, hazy with floaties, stable creamy off-White head; fruit-vinegar - mainly - in the nose, some cellary notes, not very "Bretty", residual caramel detectable, too; moderate sour flavour with a delicate sweetness, tart and stringent MF, medium bodied; lingering tart-sour finish, again is a faint sweetness detectable. Good, but not the real Thing...

Bottle from Hop City. Pours a hazy golden work a thin spotty layer of off white head. Aims and taste of tart, some sour and fruits, with ample carbonation.

BrewGoblin (448) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
Scrumptiously sour she be! The hazy, bright orange copper liquid is festooned with a thick white head. Notes of tart fruit, yeast, white wine and wheat bring a complex bouquet forth. Quite tart and fruity, a sour Greek yogurt taste is left on the tongue. This fun brew has a very fizzy and medium carbonated body with the fizz really resting in the mouth. A great beer for a relaxing moment.
