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.

750mL split.

A: Golden orange with a lazy white head. Clings to glass.

N: Tons of oak, acidity, some cinnamon and lavender and coriander. Lemon zest and grapefruit sourness. Lots of yeast and funk. In addition to the oak, it has a cedar element.

T: Tons of sour lemon and lime zest. The wood is quite prominent. Balanced with a nice malt presence/sweetness.

M: Light and incredibly drinkable.

O: Gets better and better the more I drink. Must age to see its development.

375 ml bottle dated 2012
Pours a hazy golden orange color. A bit darker than most other gueuzes (3F, Cantillon). The head is an off white color that hangs out for a little while with an aggressive pour. The aroma is bright and pronounced. Lemon brettiness. Moldy funk. Really wonderful. Flavor follows suit with a more pronounced funk and sour profile. Finishes dry with a great sweetness reminiscent of underripe peaches and lemon juice. Dry, complex, and delicious.
