Beer added by: Jason on 07-05-2011

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 from a 12.7 oz cork n cage bottle into a Bell's tulip.

A- pours a dark gold color with a 2" frothy white head. Clumps of small bubbles cling to the glass.

S- vinegar, straw, citrus and a light cherry aroma.

T- tart citrus (grapefruit), pale malts, vinegar, light spice and earthiness.

M- light body and medium carbonation. I am surprised how mellow the carbonation and acidity is!

O- 6/10 sourness. very good Geuze. Very drinkable with the lower carbonation and nice tart citrus with vinegar.

Thanks to franklinn for this gem!

Served at cellar temp... lively pear gold body capped off with a eggshell colored head that swells and retains better than any other gueuze in recent memory. Nice.

Tastefully sweet and sour... some grassy funk. So fresh and so clean, clean.

Crisp and tart, with a sourness that doesn't overwhelm the palate. Some semisweet, underlying citrus. Finishes up sweet, sour and surprisingly wet; which makes for an incredibly thirst quenching and drinkable beer.

Yum - thanks Frank!

750mL bottle into a snifter
best before: 31-01-2022

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with 2 fingers width of slightly off white colored head, which quickly dissipates down to almost nothing. Leaves zero lacing.

S: Wet, musty funk is the first aroma I get. This is followed by oak and tart, lactic citrus. Banana, sour lemon-lime, vinous, sour white grapes.

T: Somewhat puckering, tart sour characters hit the palate immediately. Belgian yeast- banana follows on the finish. I also get white grapes, oak, hay, lemon. Not much funk at all, but Im ok with that, as I prefer the tart/sour notes.

M/D: Medium body, heavy carbonation that gives it a crisp mouthfeel. Drying on the finish. Leaves you eager for the next sip. Very nice.

O: Overall, an excellent gueuze. Really enjoyed this one. Pricy bottle, but thats to be expected for the style. Highly recommend.

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

Appearance: Pours a clear golden straw color with ample carbonation. 1" of eggshell white head forms, which has good staying power and decent lacing.

Smell: Tart green apple and lemons, lacto sourness as well as brett funk. Smells pretty sour.

Taste: Lemony tartness and lacto sourness up front, with tart pale fruit and brett funk on the back end.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light with about the right amount of carbonation. Overall, a really good gueuze. Very solid example of the style.
