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 !!!!!

Kosmokrator (485) - ITALY - SEP 18, 2014
Limpido color oro con massiccio cappello di soffice schiuma bianca. Aroma fruttato e delicatamente acetico con sentori di mele, pere, uva e un tocco di scorza d’agrumi; gusto acidulo e morbido, non eccessivamente aspro e con un finale di media secchezza che ricorda un vino brut. Leggera di corpo e frizzantina ma ben strutturata, una gueuze più che discreta!

Bottiglia, colore oro pallido con una schiuma grossolana ma persistente. Un’ottima gueuze non troppo acida e molto beverina

Andy_ (684) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2014
375 ml bottle @ Cafe Derat, Utrecht.
Orange clear beer with white head. Aroma is citrusy crisp and sour with some barnyard. Flavor is sour, citrusy crisp, yeasty and peachy fruity. Thinner than medium palate with strong foamy carbonation. Finishes with a bite of bitterness and crisp sourness. Adding the yeast turns the beer hazy, adds sourness and tones down crispness. Very refreshing, not too vinegarish.

Lukasmh (115) - Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours cloudy yellow, tiny white head and sparkling. Aroma is apply, some stall and a bit leather. Good blend of the different brett characteristics. Taste is sour and acid apples. Really soft carbonation that makes it really drinkable. Finish is coating tart.

Marheb (2048) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
(Cuvée 2007): Exubérance verdoyante, chlorophylle, menthe, foin humide dans un liquide affolé mais cohérent. Acidité adéquate, une touche acétique et lactique, équilibre incroyable considérant l’age.

Dit was persoonlijk voor mij een van de mindere oude geuzes dat ik al gedronken heb.
