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.

2011-2012 bottle, 12.7 oz. Best Before 21/03/2022

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a short-lived head

S: Funky and slightly sour, with some sweetness and barnyard character. As expected, pretty much

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a mix of tart and sour funk that goes into more of a barnyard character with some natural light sweet fruitiness. Finishes with more tart notes

M: Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation

O: Pretty much what you would expect from a gueuze. The blending of the different worts definitely works, and provides some nice complexity and balance. Fairly averagely priced, too. Worth a try

2011-2012 version, best by 03/16/2022

The beer pours a cloudy orange-yellow with an effervescent white head that settles down into a thin blanketing. The nose is sweet and sour with a touch of tangy citrus. Its taste presents an initial sweetness which soon transitions into a potent, saliva inducing sourness, and finishes with a slightly herbal, champagne-like dryness. The herbal characteristic is so subtle I'm wondering if it's just my imagination... The beer is light bodied and drinkable with ample carbonation and sweetness to counter its immense sourness. Honestly, this beer gives cantillon and 3F a serious run for their money and for the price it is definitely worth trying.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: A light amber with good clarity and a lot of fine bubbles. The long lasting head is made of rocky off-white bubbles.

S: Moderately strong grapefruit hits your nose just after you pop the cork. Once you get it in the glass you can smell a balance moderate sour aroma with an earthiness. There is a light bit of rhubarb.

T: A clean refreshing, moderately-strong tart sourness that is in balance with the malt. There a light touch of honey and oak. The balance is pretty tart, although there are a few that are more sour. The finish is very dry with a linger grapefruit tartness.

M: A medium-light body with strong carbonation.

O: The beer initially makes your mouth water then dries it out. This is a well balanced Gueuze that is refreshing and tart.
