Oud Beersel Oude Geuze
one of the my favorites. unique and excellent. beautiful foam stays all day long. amazingly complex taste from wild fermentation. lemon and grapefruit taste with refreshingly astringent. some floral and earthy touches. amazingly balanced. low bodied, but feeling is awesome due to high carbonation. no need to taste hops. highly drinkable despite some sourness. amazing beer.

Oud Beersel Oude Geuze
Bottle from Delhaize in Brussels. Pours hazy yellow. Nose is apple, white wine, honey, woody, ginger. Heavily carbonated (same as the kriek). Palate is apple, woody, some oaky bitterness. Very Good, but too much carbonation. Need to drink a vintage!

Oud Beersel Framboise
Oud Beersel Framboise aka ’How to rape lambic’. Horrendous sweet aroma. Sweet jam and flat cheese strawberry. No framboise at all... I do not understand that this fine brewery makes this sweet mess.

Oud Beersel Oude Kriek
Not my favorite old kriek, but still very nice. Intense ruby red colour. Lemony sour aroma. This lemon/citrus is also in the taste. Sour, lambic, barnyard. Palate slightly tart. Aftertaste is rather flat and one-dimensional.

Oud Beersel Oude Geuze
From bottle in Belgian ale glass. First time I’ve tried this style. Pours orangish yellow with frothy head and fruity & earthy nose. Forward tartness and lemon sourness but a bit more complex than a standard sour. It grew on me.

Oud Beersel Oude Kriek
375ml bottle obtained in a trade. Pours a beautiful dark cherry mahogany red with a frothy pink head. Big head, long lasting with honeycomb shaped bubbled carbonation rising along the side of the glass. Smells sweet, subtle cherry notes with a nice woody, oaky finish. Typical "lambic" aroma is present. Not much going on, on the nose however. Very tart, dark cherry flavor throughout. Sour, oaky profile. Tasty "lambic" essence. A little too sour and not enough overall flavor or complexity to go along with it. Mouthfeel is tart and light. Crisp finish and an ok aftertaste. It’s tasty and enjoyable but I was hoping for more from this one.

Oud Beersel Green Walnut
Pours a medium yellow golden with two fingers of gaseous foam. Nose is musty basement, straw some soft citrus and green apple. Palate follows with lots of straw and hay notes that are accentuated by green apple, stonefruit and a bit of wet wood. A touch of bitterness rides the palate throughout adding a bit more complexity than expected.

Oud Beersel Bersalis Tripel
Aroma: bubblegum/banana but some hints of apple fruityness and even some sourness too. Taste bubblegum and again apple and a gentle sourness. Mouthfeel astringent. Rather soft for a tripel. Alcohol not overpowering but it is definately there ( as the cognitive parts of my brain have noticed ). Not the worst tripel but it lacks complexity.

Oud Beersel Bersalis Sourblend
Sweet malts of pear and kiwi with sour fermenting fruit. Lots of esters still. Taste is indeed somewhat sour, of the lactic kind, but quite sweet too. Cloying body even. It’s barely okay. Would like to drink this more often. (33cl bottle from Prik&Tik Leuven)

Oud Beersel Schaarbeekse Oude Kriek
Bottle. Pours deep clear burgundy with a medium/large pink head which recedes a touch then lingers before disappearing. Aroma is lemony tartness and raspberry. Taste is raspberry tart, raspberry sweet, quite high citric tartness, cranberry tart. Dry finish. Overall this is tart with little sweetness.

Oud Beersel Oude Kriek
Bottle from the Delhaize on the Rue de Midi in Brussels. Pours a beautiful deep red with small pink head. Nose is cherry jam, strawberry, wood, cherry blossoms, just a tiny bit acidic. Heavily carbonated, maybe even a bit too much. Palate is very nice fruity cherry, some sourness in the finish, cherry wood middle. The carbonation ruins the fruityness a bit, but still very good!

Oud Beersel Oude Lambik
Pierwszy czysty lambik jaki piłem. W aromacie dzikość, ale stonowana. W smaku lekka kwasnośc, lekka wytrawność. Gdzieś tam pałęta się cytrusowośc i jabłka. Ocena na podstawie notatek pisanych przed założeniem konta na RB.

Wyjątkowy, owocowy profil, widać że to nie jakieś wiśnie z Biedronki na kiju. Intensywne wiśnie, skóra, stajnia, funk. Mocno wytrawne, cierpkie, bez grama octu, znów - bardzo funky, pestkowe, kwaśne skórki od wiśni, drewno, taniny. Pyszne piwo, wielka klasa.

Oud Beersel Green Walnut
750ml bottle shared thanks to Nate! Pours hazy straw yellow with medium head. Nose and taste are pretty classic lambic with some of the green apple and dry hayfield beersel character I usually pick up. Medium tartness, earthy citrus notes with a slight dry bitter nutty note in the long finish, not sure how the walnuts play into this, just seems like a nice solid lambic to me. Perhaps a touch more complexity than standard shelf Beersel. Would happily drink this any time.

Oud Beersel Bersalis Tripel
Robe blonde orange parfaitement limpide, mousse blanche abondante, aérée, grosses bulles, tenue moyenne. Nez épicé sur le coriandre, le citron, le blé. Arôme de blanche. Avec forte présence alcooleuse. Bouche d’emblée dominée par l’alcool, avec des notes épicées (coriandre, citron) et de blé. Légère douceur maltée et finale moyennement amère. Triple outrageusement dominée par l’alcool. On percevait pourtant un potentiel intéressant pour une triple épicée et levurée à la belge. Monte beaucoup trop à la tête et t’envoie au sud.
