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.

Bottle shared with me by Curran.

Pours a murky, hazy light yellow-orange, with not much of a head or lacing.

Smells like tart and funky citrus, really juicy smelling. As far as I know, this wasn't made with any fruit, so the fruity smells coming off of this are really impressing me.

This is really fruity and dry and wonderful. Huge citrus presence, with lactic acid, some mustiness, but not a lot. There's some barnyard-like funk. It's got quite a bite to it, from both the high carbonation, and the sour quality.

This has a highly carbonated and spritzy mouthfeel, with a fairly light body. It's pretty damn drinkable.

This is highly excellent. It's nice that it's much easier to get than some of the big guys.

Look: Hazy gold with a massive plume of off white hand. Handsome devil this
smell: Loads of tart citrus and earthy funk. Is that good? Hell yes.
taste: more of the same. No way I can explain a Geueze and make it sound it good, but this is so tasty. Much like the nose, mostly dry and damn good.

Pours a glowing orange-amber color, with a fizzy, small head.

Very sour, fruity aromas with tart notes among subtle hints of white wine and vinegar.

Begins slightly sour with a notable fruitiness of lemon rind and unripe peach, also musty yeast which helps to keeo the beer in balance. Then sour, dry acidity becomes more and more detectable. It hits the palate in an intense, but refreshing way. The sourness in this Gueuze goes through different stages on the palate. At first, defined by a subtle fruitiness, then with slick yeast and soft yogurt notes, to finish with a dry, tart aftertaste.
