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.

A bottle of the 2011-2012 at 750 ml. A big spritzy head that stays but doesn't leave much on the side of my glass. Beer stays covered all the way through. Cloudy golden amber with a visible amount of carbonation going on. Nose is superb and hits all the notes in the scale of greatness. Wine, hay, grass, vinegar, oak, funk, pale malt, faint honey, and the list can continue. Taste is ridiculous. Supremely balanced with lots of tart acidic notes that follow a surprisingly malty front. Oak is big but not overwhelming as it seems to bind the malt and vinous elements together into an amazing whole. The honey from the nose flows ever so gently underneath it all carrying the flavors to a firm but not overpoweringly sour and dry finish. Oh there is quite a pucker, but one that takes you back to the glass for more and more. It's almost addictively good. Feel is silky, and vigorously creamy in its carbonation. The weight is perfectly balanced and combined with the other seductive qualities of this beer I found myself seasoning what should have been a sipper. Sipping this one is an act of incredible self restraint. I had this with amy favorite cheese and my wife who is not a big fan of sours joined me in the hearty consumption of this stellar brew.

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.

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.
