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.

Poured a corked and caged 375ml into my Boulevard goblet. This beer pours a hazy golden straw with a rather surprisingly large head of a gueuze. A little bit of lacing was left down the sides of the glass. The aroma is bright citrus up front. Reminds me of lemon and grapefruit rind and pith. Grass with a bit of old lady closet. Fairly heavy on the must. The flavor is much the same with heavy citrus up front. Lots of lemon rind and cut grass. Just a hint of vinegar. Lots of must and damp earth. The mouthfeel is nice. Finishes dry but not as dry as some Gueuzes I've had. Overall, I'm pretty excited to have another blender in business. Especially if it means I'll have a traditional gueuze selection on my local shelves.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Brilliant golden color, with almost no head. Aroma is lactic, acetic, and earthy, with a toasted oak character. There's almost a blue cheese sharp funk to it. Flavor reveals sour cherry notes, along with a clean, acetic and lactic character that dries nicely in the finish and becomes slightly barnyard/phenolic. Very impressive in the sourness that erupts and fades, cleansing the palate perfectly.
