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.

have enjoyed this brew on many occasions, but never reviewed...til now (although i imagine there are 4 or 5 reviews of this scribbled in notebooks somewhere). 2012 / 2013 12.7oz poured into a cantillon tumbler.

a - brew has a rich golden color...a bit thicker and richer than some of the others. thin creamy head of tiny bubbles holding hands. some visible carbonation and a touch of yeast floaters.

s - nose is killer. grass, hay, some funkiness...but also some nice lemon sweetness. more on the cantillon side than the 3F side of the spectrum.

t - really something else...spot on. fantastic for such a young gueuze. much more grassy than the nose suggested, but still has the lemon sweetness to balance things out.

m - very smooth with a hint of prickle.

o - overall, a world class shelf gueuze...let's hope the cat stays in the bag on this one so it stays gettable.

This is an '11 vintage.

The beer comes in a hazy peachy amber with a small white head.

The aroma has a big funkiness throughout of hay, farm, stinky socks. There is green apple peel, a lemony tartness, a bit of malty sweetness, slight restrained in general.

The flavor follows with green apple peel, lemon juice tartness, a light breadiness in the middle with some fruity sweetness even, a deep funkiness of stinky socks and farm quality. There's white wine character throughout. The beer is extremely dry.

A more restrained beer than Drie Fonteinen, as I had two blind. Still absolutely delicious though.

2012
Gentle pour yields generous two inch off white head. Bubbly and poppy that reduces quickly to paper thin edge. Cloudy honeyed apricot appearance.

Sour fruit. Fresh sanded oak flooring. Sea brine. Fruits of lemon and apricot skin.

Sweet and sour. Lemony and fruity (how bout that for redundancy). Not saying there's raspberries there but the tartness from fresh raspberries is there for me moreso than lemon. Woodsy and yeasty in the middle. Apricot sweetness and lemon rind. Some mineral on the back end.

Very smooth and surprisingly enough not head tilting or wincing. I'm really drawn into the fuzzy apricot sensations here. Spritefull carbonation.

Overall sophistication. Putting this in my chambers. More of a wild ale session but all in all quite enjoyable.
