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.

Thin head. hazy amber gold with small chunks of floatsum.
Sour apple nose.
Green unripe apple bite. kumbucha backed up with cider vinegar.
Sour/bitter finish. very similar to eating very small green apples.
Instant hartburn. I don't think i can finish this beer. considering the only beer i dumped in the last couple years had shards of broken glass in it, that's saying alot. by far one of the worst 'great' beers i have had in a while. starting to wonder if every beer is c+ or better on beer advocate.

Cloudy with a straw-gold color. Medium, white, compact head with medium- retention.

Lactic, sour melon, lemon zest, horse hair, lemon-lime soda, oiled baseball glove, cheese rind.

Sour candy, cheese rind, gym socks, sour cherry, old leather, sour lactic tone, grapefruit, dirty.

Lean mouthfeel that is very linear and acidic. Very dry.

Super funky, even for a style that is sought out for it's funkiness. Maybe a bad bottle? Honestly, just this side of undrinkable.

Usual cork and caged 37.5 cl bottle: BBD 12 Apr 2021. Shared between four at the first ever Shrewsbury bottle share on 27th Jan 2014.

Cooking apples!

I don't drink cider and I certainly don't drink old sour dry cider that a vinegar fly has got into: it reminded me of that.
