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.

12.7 oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip. 2013/2014 batch. Best by 08/01/14. After a slight tug on the cork it actually shot out with a huge POP.

A: Pours a couple fingers of thin, sudsy bone colored head which instead of dissipating remains constant. The body is a very hazy orange.

S: One of the stinkiest beers I've ever smelled. Brings to mind all the worst aromas of a barn. Stinky cheese, smelly feet, old hay, Greek yogurt, sea salt, citrus fruit and white wine barrels.

T: More of the same decaying barn funk with a yogurt tang and lemon juice middle. Finishes with a smokey, burned rubber mineral note and some wine forward toasted oak. Really opens up as it warms.

M: Medium feel with a medium carbonation and lots of lip smacking tartness. Begs to be sipped on non stop.

O: A very layered and complex gueuze that I wish I could try next to some of the other well known lambic blenders. This seemed less acidic and bright than the Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze. Overall recommended and worth cellaring to see what time will bring. Brings a wide variety of weird funky and sour flavors to the table.

A-Aggressive cork pop, then a gush. Pours a very cloudy yellow colors head is white and bubbly. Head dies off leaving bubbly lacing.

S-Very funky and rustic. Tart lemons, damp, rotten wood. Very musty. Hay and earth. Smells like it will be super sour.

T-Inexplicable sourness and tart fruit. Lemons, apples, white grapes. Soggy oak. Earth and sour cheese. Pale malt. Vinegar.

M-Lighter bodied but nearing medium. Airy feel. Very bubbly. Puckering. Dry. Acidic.

O-An intense Gueuze. Packed more punch that I anticipated. I was happy with this; I was expecting something less authentic, so this was nice.

Poured into teku. Perfect blend of sourness, creamy mouth, and low heat. Wonderfully drinkable and not too tart. Still the sourness does come through and doesn't disappoint. A nice lingering sour aftertaste as well. Doesn't seem overly dry to me. Instead, it has a crispness to it. If anything, any dryness is subtle. Excellent representation of this style. Never disappoints.
