Notes/Commercial Description:
Oude Gueuze Tilquin à l’Ancienne (6.0% alc/vol) is a spontaneous fermentation beer, produced from the blending of 1, 2 and 3 years old lambics. It is unfiltered and unpasteurized, and refermented in the bottle for at least 6 months. The lambics used were fermented and oak aged in our installations. These lambics are coming from worts brewed by Boon, Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon breweries.

2011-2012 version, best by 03/16/2022

The beer pours a cloudy orange-yellow with an effervescent white head that settles down into a thin blanketing. The nose is sweet and sour with a touch of tangy citrus. Its taste presents an initial sweetness which soon transitions into a potent, saliva inducing sourness, and finishes with a slightly herbal, champagne-like dryness. The herbal characteristic is so subtle I'm wondering if it's just my imagination... The beer is light bodied and drinkable with ample carbonation and sweetness to counter its immense sourness. Honestly, this beer gives cantillon and 3F a serious run for their money and for the price it is definitely worth trying.

4.18/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Silky hazy golden. Poured a massive false head that dissipated quickly. Left a thin continuous ring around the glass. Highly carbonated. Excellent color and super smooth consistency, but the head was the only downside.

S: Mild funky mustiness of old library books with grape and lemon lime zest.

T: Starts off with bright sweet sour lemon lime candy. Has a light saltine malt with a tangy white pepper. Sour green grapes. Bright tart green apple. Finishes with a white vinegar.

M: Thin light and extremely crisp. Mouth puckering with a salty dehydrating finish.

O: A little over exuberant on the sourness. Lots of complexity of both bright and mellow flavors, but you really have to work to get through all that tanginess.
