Brouwerij Oud Beersel Oude Gueuze Vieille

What the brewers say

“A fresh foamy beer, made according to the rules of art. The Oude Geuze Oud Beersel is distinguished by a typical fruity and hoppy key.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Citrus and fruity with orange, peach, apricot, and pineapple plus light strawberry and plum. Lactic and Brett character comes through on the nose as well. Tartness shines up front from the acidity followed by some notes of lemon zest, pineapple, and dried apricot. You can almost smell the carbonation.”

Flavor: “Big peach, moderate apricot, citrus notes of lemon, orange, pink grapefruit, and pineapple. Moderately high acidity, slight lemon-zest bitterness, and a long tail of peach. High carbonation gives it a champagne-like character. Acidity and tartness struggle a bit to compete with some of the subtle citrus and pineapple fruit notes. Finish is rather dry.”

Overall: “A good balance between fruit and acidity. The carbonation really makes this a refreshing beverage. Complexity is evident in the tartness, and the blend of aged and young also shines in the fruitiness, with a nice balance between those components.”
