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.

Brilliant golden color, with almost no head. Aroma is lactic, acetic, and earthy, with a toasted oak character. There's almost a blue cheese sharp funk to it. Flavor reveals sour cherry notes, along with a clean, acetic and lactic character that dries nicely in the finish and becomes slightly barnyard/phenolic. Very impressive in the sourness that erupts and fades, cleansing the palate perfectly.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A: Silky hazy golden. Poured a massive false head that dissipated quickly. Left a thin continuous ring around the glass. Highly carbonated. Excellent color and super smooth consistency, but the head was the only downside.

S: Mild funky mustiness of old library books with grape and lemon lime zest.

T: Starts off with bright sweet sour lemon lime candy. Has a light saltine malt with a tangy white pepper. Sour green grapes. Bright tart green apple. Finishes with a white vinegar.

M: Thin light and extremely crisp. Mouth puckering with a salty dehydrating finish.

O: A little over exuberant on the sourness. Lots of complexity of both bright and mellow flavors, but you really have to work to get through all that tanginess.
