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.

375ml Bottle received in trade from Phyl21a

Appearance – Golden yellow colour with a small size fizzy/rocky white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains/wheat, vinegar, grapefruit

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an above average amount of carbonation. I can taste tart citrus (lemons/grapefruit), green grapes, and some vinegar. There is also some straw/grass and some light hops.

Overall – Really good stuff. There is a grapefruit pith type flavour that keeps its tart and refreshing. Maybe not a whole lot of complexity but still an interesting beer to drink. One of the better gueuzes I've had.
