Hazy golden colour with a white head. Tart fruity aroma with dusty notes. Flavor has a nice blend of sweet and tart notes with a light dusty finish. Sombeast (151) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2007
From notes 1 week old. Served in a flute glass. Slightly cloudy pale gold in color, with a perpetually replenishing head. Aroma is tart, distinctly dusty, and lemony. The flavor on this one just ’pops’, starting with an effervescent carbonation sting turning quickly to a tart, dry sourness. Lemon-sour finish. Light bodied. Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007
Overall a very wellbalanced and easy to drink Oude Gueze. Aroma is sharp and sour, in a refreshing way. Nice balanced sourness in the flavor aswell with notes of citrus. Not overly complex but again, a good introduction to the style. stouby (4666) - Holbæk, DENMARK - MAY 13, 2007
Bottle at the Copenhagen Beer Festival 2007.
Golden with a white head. Aroma moderate malty (fruity) and acidic Flavor light sweet, heavy acidic, long duration. Light in body. zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2007
Bottle. Pours hazy orange yellow, white head and floating chunks. Aroma is funky tangy bleu cheese, musty, fruity. Flavor is sour tart, tangy bleu cheese, sour dough, fruit, slight cream cheese. Not terribly complex, but still good stuff.

Bottle labelled: best before 07-01-2025. I decided not to wait that long, and poured this hazy golden brew into a Belgian goblet as a large foamy white head developed and stuck around for a long time, although lace was limited. Distinct brett aroma, but also notes of honey, lemon, and light stone fruits. Light to medium body and a palate cleansing acidity produce a refreshing mouthfeel. Acidic and sour, yet not everly so, followed by some astringency. All in all, very pleasant, and a good choice for warmer weather. I had it with some grilled triggerfish, and it was the perfect accompaniment. beermaniac (86) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2007
Aroma: Straightforward barnyard, bretty notes. Also hints of straw, strong fruits, niced aged character. Hint of butterscotch as it warms.
Appearance: A shade darker than I would have though, also still within range at a darker gold color. Nice white head.
Flavor: Brett and fruit, mirrors aroma. Not one flavor element really is in the forefront, well-balanced in flavor with typical lambic presentation.
Palate: Extremely sour, but its a gueze! You don’t get used to the sourness like you do in other lambics.
Overall: Good stuff, complex, packed full of flavor and aroma, with prerequisite sourness. DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2007
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy yellow color with a really big, fluffy white head. The biggest head I’ve seen on a lambic yet - leaves thick soapy lace down the glass. Aroma is light fruit, maybe some apples, dry and very winey. Taste is mellow, balanced, smooth with just a bit of tartness. This is a nice geuze. Well balanced and refreshing. redlight (2318) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Farmhouse, horse-blanket, musty aroma, with notes of grapefruit and vinegar. Pours golden pale with a huge head that is lasting! Citrus, grapefruit, kumquat up front. Smooth sourness, with a bite towards the end. Finishes very clean, lendering slightly. Great gueze!

I had to add, after pouring in the rest of the bottle a huge yeast cake is snaking around the glass. awesome. I guess i’ll get my daily dose of vitamin B.

One of the more easy accessable geuzes, caused by the lack of extreme grapeness and sourness. But it’s very complex and has a very high drinkabilty for a geuze-newcomer
