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 chilled into a fluted tulip

Pours a hazy blonde with an inch of airy white head that quickly recedes leaving no surface layer and very little lacing.

Aromas of sour green apple and spice.

Flavors of the afforementioned sour green apple along with lemongrass and some barnayrd funk from the yeast.

Light to medium bodied with a surprisingly crisp finish considering the lack of lacing.

Overall a well balanced and drinkable beer. Would definitely try again.

2011 Vintage

Appearance: Cloudy amber-yellow with a moderate white head that subsides to a thin white cap. Nothing to change here.

Smell: Upfront barnyard funk with some sour citrus, and grassy hay notes.

Taste: Grapefruit/citrus notes, hay notes, mild barnyard funk and mild black pepper notes come through in the taste. The beer finishes very clean.

Mouth-feel: Light to medium bodied with a fairly generous level of carbonation. A satisfying mouthful.

Overall: A very good gueuze in my opinion. I'll take this one over the majority of the gueuzes I've had with the exception of my favorite (Cantillon) and a few of the rarer, more expensive ones.

A - slightly clouded straw yellow body, nice and big white head.

S - Very pungent, sharp citrus, earthy notes, a touch of vanilla?

T - Tart, fruity, dry. Not too puckering, but there is a real intensity to the sour features.

M - Dry, smooth, and it attacks the tongue a bit

O - This is a really nice gueuze. I will buy more for cellaring and to get a better idea of it.
