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 !!!!!

Bottle. Clear golden color with quite thick white head. Aroma is quite tart with funky elements and some berries, fruits and a hint of yeast. Taste is fruity but quite sour and dry with long nice aftertaste. Flavors of sour apples, berries, citrus and wood. Well balanced and very drinkable.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2016 Bottle from Alko, Espoo. Pours cloudy golden with a little but well lasting head. The aroma features yeasty barnyard themed notes and sour fruitiness; also a touch of pale maltiness. Taste is fresh, crisp and quite sour and tart; apple, black currant, citrus fruitiness and some grain. The palate is medium-bodied, the carbonation lively. Refreshingly sour and fruity.

ksiwzos (123) - GREECE - SEP 3, 2016
Aroma has a nice funkiness, lemon, salinity, notes of burnt plastic, soapy hops, some nice phenols. Beautiful and complex! Funkiness isn’t very intense but beautiful. Pale and almost crystal clear with normal white head that dissipates. Taste is tart with some botanic notes, brett is intense too and strangely a bit hoppy. Makes me salivate and want more! Some citrus overtones. Body is light ot medium, light carbonation and very dry. Amazing beer...

dandeman (826) - 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.
