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.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

375mL corked and caged bottle poured into a tumbler.

(A)- Pours a clear goldenrod yellow, almost orange color. Produced a good frothy white head that dissipated after a minute or two. Good lacing too actually.

(S)- Love the smell. A dry, dusty earthy floor type smell to it. Deep lactic acidic notes that turn into almost a funky cheese type of must. Bits of lemon and just overall, funktastic.

(T)- Similar to the smell. An awesome sharp acidity that flows into the dry, funky cheese, dirty floor from the smell. I know gueuzes do not have fruit added, but I swear there is some acidic lemon in this one. An all over awesome and classic taste that further reminds me why this is my most favorite style of beer ever.

(M)- A wonderful carbonation level and an even better balance. While some really stick to either the funky side or the heavy acidic side of the style, this one centers right in-between so it has the best of both worlds at the same time. The sourness is spot on and the dry funk with subtle fruit sweetness just makes this all come together.

(O)- I had heard good things about this one, and am glad they were true. An absolutely classic example that is both dynamic and a perfect balance of everything I like in a gueuze. World class.

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.
