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.

375ml bottle into a Duvel tulip... 2011-2012 batch(?)

A - nice golden color, decent amount of head retention. a little lacing. kinda hazy, but that's ok.

S - pretty much what i was looking for. beautiful tart aroma from the wild yeast. reminiscent of fresh pungent citrus rind.

T - beautiful sour flavor with just a bit of golden malt sweetness. reminds me of sanctification from russian river. faint fruity notes. very drinkable.

M - very nice astringency. pleasing foam texture.

O - really enjoyed this. highly recommend it to fans of the style. i guess i'm still sort of a beginner when it comes to geuze, but i thought this was really accessible while still being sophisticated to my palate. shared this with a friend who is newer to geuze than i am and he said that the aroma was maybe too much for him, but it tasted great.

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.
