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.

This has been and always be my favorite geuze. As I sip the bottle from my hotel room in Brussels, I am reminded how important this beer is to the history of Brussels. The aroma is powerful with hints of lactic and Brett that remind me of all the complexities of this beer. The beer bone dry with a good biting acidity that comes alive with all of the carbonation in the mouth. The brewer closed down in 2003, but opened up and are starting a revival of sorts. They are making a wonderful triple to help get the lambic side of things going again. The color is of straw with lots of effervensce and a slight whippy white head. The taste is amazing with so many layers and depth. There is citrus, hay, wet horse, wool and a soft malt character that is there for those who choose to dig deep into this beer. The finish is dry and grainy/bready with a zesty sour note. It is a must try even if only to keep this tiny brewery alive !!!!!

dandeman (809) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
En fût à L’Autre Œil le 8 juillet 2016. Le liquide se présente blond / doré avec une toute petite mousse. Au nez c’est très acidulé et fermier.En bouche, les premières notes développent des accents forestiers, des notes de sapin, de vert, accompagnées d’un fruité aux notes complexes. Nous avons droit à toutes les composantes des levures sauvages avec les notes de vieille ferme, de crin de cheval, de vieux cuir. Une bière très relevée mais aussi douce à la fois.

lesifflebiere (1645) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2016
Des notes de pommes, de raisin et des promesses d’acidulé dans cette infusion dorée tirant sur le cuivre ; belle petite mousse blanche en lambeaux. La bouche offre des fraises, des cerises, des pommes et un peu de céréales blondes en clôture. Mince, directe mais joliment complexe, épicée et désaltérante, c’est un délice de tous les instants, un brin rond et convenu mais passablement réussi.

konungen (431) - - JUL 30, 2016
Grumligt gul/guld färgad öl med liten vit krona. En fantastisk öl tycker jag, denna flaska hade lagrats en tid och ölen var grym! Lagom sur, en bra fräschör, lite stall känsla, citrus, lagom torr. Riktigt bra ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gehbe (177) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUL 30, 2016
Hazy gold with a big white head. Clean and lovely nose of brett and lactic. Crispy dry without excess acidity. I love the clean palate and the balanced taste, wonderful.
