I agree with the Commercial Description: ''sparking and refreshing¨.
If I wasn´t sparked up enough, I had the pleasure to try this with Duff in some pub under London Bridge on southside the name of which is not so important right now. Tart and the bit of the blue cheeze that´s been sitting in the olive juice on the snack tray and all the Jatz are gone so I´ve gone and used my unwashed hands straight to the mouth despite the rags I may or may not be on right now. Beautiful geuze, beautiful company. Juergen_F (21) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 11, 2010
37,5CL bottle, 2005 vintage / over sized Bordeaux style wine glass. Being familiar with the regular Oude Geuze Boon, I was excited to find a bottle of the Mariage Parfait in the Beer store that I always go to. It pours a very nice slighty dark orange and hazy liquid with a nice head. Smelling and tasting this is like is like visiting beer heaven; this truly is one of the greatest of all beers and one of the greatest in its style. Frank Boon did a truly wonderful job in selecting and blending his very best Lambics from various vintages. Apple, orange, citrus and woody notes from the casks are some of the tastes that I noticed in this beer. This has champagne-like qualities with a lovely sparkle and sourness and sweetness in perfect harmony. The finish is very dry like it should be. This is a beer to share with good company instead of wine. It goes very well with white meat as well. I have another bottle of 2005 vintage still maturing in my cellar, I really wonder what it will taste like in a couple of years. I do not easily rate beers this high, but everything about the Oude Geuze Mariage Parfait is just.... parfait! madsenbryg (371) - Holstebro, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2010

One of my favorite beers tout court, and one of my favorites geuzes. Sour, sour, sour, but in a mellow way. Sprankles at the thongue.
Also very useful as aperitif. Sissio (1724) - Orsenigo, ITALY - DEC 26, 2015

Was recommended this beer by a fellow patron at the Delerium Cafe in Brussels. I received a 2003 vintage, served in authentic glassware. Head was pure white and sparkling. First taste was lemon, sweet and tart, and the aftertaste was wonderfully dry. I would compare it to a fine champagne. cortomaltese (13) - , ITALY - MAR 4, 2010
La mia Geuze preferita!Anche se anomala per via del suo grado alcolico alto.Gusto intenso e persistente.L’alcol è ben nascosto dalla sua forte acidità.
