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.

Pietrocafe (2) - BELGIUM - MAR 2, 2008 does not count
good flavor, nice colour, perfect taste, Mostly lasting number 3 in the list of my personal geuze

4.1
AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Clear amber with a thin white head. Big aroma is oak, cedar, musty, lemony, wheat. Medium body. A mouth puckering tart dry taste at first is grainy wheat lemons, hay, wet wood. Has a very light touch of sweetness to finish. A very refreshing, crisp taste and mouthfeel here. Not as complex as some guezes but still very good. 4147

Bottle @ Yespr tasting.
[thank you, faroeviking]
Pours a muddy pale yellow with a smallish bubbly white head. Aroma is funky, barnyard, very classic lambic, but with a tendency to have some apricot aromas as well. Dry mouthfeel. Quite tart flavour with moldy, funky and woody characters developing nicely.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - FEB 23, 2008
Good, but not as complex as I was hoping. This representation of geuze was a touch on the sweet side and didn’t have that much sour going on. Now...it certainly wasn’t Lindeman’s in terms of sweetness, but it was noticable. Not bad for the person cracking into the sour beer world, but not something I would buy a case of.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2008 37.5 cL bottle, thanks to faeroeviking. Pours hay orange with a lacing white head. Light orange fruity to dry funky aroma. Flavour is smooth acidic with a solid brett and a dry woody note. Dry woody finish, mellow woody note.

375ml bottle. Pours hazy golden color with foamy white head. Aroma sour, yeasty and grassy. Taste tart, yeasty and lite citrus with very dry finish.

Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - FEB 7, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2008 Bottle at Akkurat. First one was very funky so I complained and got a new one and a chat with one of their beer guys. The second one was better but very odd. Bit sad about it as I love the Oud Beersel Oude Kriek but... this is how it has to be. Aroma is fresh but also farm-like, tarty and the acidity is evident from smell alone. The taste, however, has an unusual bitterness but very little tartness. Still feels somehow flat and soft... (Old rating: 7, 4, 4, 2, 7) Re-rate, 37,5cl bottle from Systembolaget October 6th, 2008: Tart aroma with hints of bitterness and boiled sweets. Better than I seem to have found it last time. Still quite thin on the palate and there’s an unusual bitterness to it that I don’t associate with Geuzes. Not unpleasant, mind you. Not particularly tart on the flavour and I think the hint of boiled sweets carries on with a bit of fruitiness. Still probably least of the proper Geuzes I’ve had and at the price I’d rather get something else. Still nice to get that shot of Geuze I get all too seldom.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2008
Darker yellow to light amber coloured beer with some light carbonation and a rather small white head. Sour fruity and light woody aroma. Little sour full body. Finish is sour fruity. Good but not the best.

3.8
Yves (3042) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - FEB 2, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2009 Light amber coloured beer, medium carbonation, almost no head. Sour aroma, just reminded me to sour candy balls. Strong sour palate ending smoother. Nicely balanced. Good one.
