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.

[37.5cl bottle, Pivo - York, 12/01/10] Classic funky gueuze nose: wood, vinegar, lemon. Moderate sourness for a gueuze. Dry finish with a fair amount of carbonation.

Padron4KM (690) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2015
375 ml bottle, best before 7/03/2032 stamped on label.
Hazy dark golden, thick, fluffy, lasting white head, nice lace.
Aroma is vinous, lemon, green apple,yeast, soft cheese.
Flavor is tart, lemony, green apple, brett. Light sweetness keeping it all reigned in. Not super complex, but still tasty.

Gription79 (2648) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Poured from a 375ml bottle, thanks Mike. Malty, light soreness, oxidized, musty, fruity, cheesy. Solid, but not as tasty as I would have thought for a geuze.

Poured medium amber with a disappearing off white head. Aroma is tart and vinous. Light to medium body, flavour is fruity, spritzy and tart.

Hopmaestro (641) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2015
Aroma is sour and earthy. Taste is fruity and malty with a super barn taste. Let us keep it short here. This is a killer gueuze!

King_Alex_II (671) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 1, 2015
Clear golden color with a pretty foam head. Sour lambic funky smell with less cheese and feet than other gueuzes have. Little over carbonated, with a fresh sour funky taste and a cheese note. The aftertaste is dry and leaves a sourish taste and an almost tart hint. The beer is a bit over ambition in its carbonation. The side flavors don’t develop very much, but this is still an awesome drinking beer, since it’s not insanely complex.

apickles (263) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2015
Golden brown colour, cloudy with a slight off white head. Vinegary sour nose, slightly sparkling in the glass. Sour to taste, a little banana on the finish.

bartlebier (2654) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUL 23, 2015
Regular 37,5cl bottles, latest sampled bb04/2033. Thirst quenching, young and green apple-inflected Oude Geuze, offering fresh lemonade and cider spritz instead of complex funk or bretty depths. Musty aroma, pollen and lemin blossom stored in a damp cellar, atop fresh Granny Smith juice and lemonade. Young cheese rind, whey connects lactic elements in aroma and the dry juicy aspects of taste. Mouthfeel as ever very quenching and champagne-spritzy. Now that it’s more widely available in larger supermarkets, certainly the go-to all-purpose Oude Geuze - curious about what the 6% will do in aged samples over 3yrs.

Silvan7 (885) - Samarate, ITALY - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle (2012) @ home. ambrata, opalescnete. schiuma bianca grossolana abbastanza persistente. aroma agrumato, citrico, scorza d’arancia, vaniglia, legno, aspirina, cantina. Zucchero filato. Gusto acido, piuttosto amero, frumento, legno, polvere. Molto carbonata, corposa per il suo stile, . non molto calda, spigolosa, equilibrata ed armonica.
