4.23/5  rDev +7.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Beautifully blended and preferring the "young" taste over the "old", Timmermans Old Gueuze offers up a racy adicity and champagne-like carbonation to highlight is fresh lime and salty character.

Opening with strikingly bright appearances of straw, its nearly bright initial pour is followed by a disturbance about the yeast that hazes things up a bit with subsequent pours. Its high effervescence fuels a stark white head that's part-froth and part-fizz; regenerated with a steady swirl of the glass. With no real anticipation of lace, the beer relaxes with its broken spider-webbing that floats the ale.

Sharply acidic in its aromas, the scent of this distinctive ale starts off with lemons, limes, a brisk whiff of sea air, light leather and an aura of old attic wood. Lightly musty but mostly tart- its scent borrows a fruity tone from sparkling white wines even with the musty scent of damp straw and hay.

To taste, the beer isn't nearly as delicate. Its brash with its sourness and clean with its refreshing taste. Short-lived bready sweetness is quickly broken up by piercing sourness in the middle. Limes with one taste is salty with the next, and then is corkish with a certain wood mustiness thereafter. Its finish is palate stripping with an utmost sour taste that's similar to gin and tonics. Somewhat sweaty in between, the rustic taste of straw mimics the finishing scent of the nose. Sure, a mild grassy bitterness endures but is easily dismissed as earthen taste.

Its light body is attributed to the dry malt taste that's somewhat cracker-like in its quick malt texture. Yet its sudden dryness is citrusy-dry, minerally-crisp, and vinous-warm. Lasting tastes of straw and sweat linger pleasantly and earthly in aftertaste.

Timmermans exquisite Oude Gueuze demonstrates what's best about the blend of Lambics that prefer more of a younger and tarter taste over that of the more elden leather and must. Although I often enjoy a pep of vinegar in such beers, its seem that this ale avoids such polarizing taste and prefers the effects of cellar-like Brettanomyces and the clean lactic tartness of Lactobacillus instead- clean and dry sour refreshments are the rewards.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

750ml bottled on 04/17/13

Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden straw color with a two finger, pillowy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Spots and streaks of soapy lace left behind. Pretty pale and almost clear on the edges but otherwise looks pretty good.

Musty aroma with a prominent earthy barnyard character but it's not too funky. Slight horsey character with damp wood, funky bugs, cobweb and lactic cheesiness. Dank basement and oak along with light fruit and citric acidity. Hints of apple and lemon peel sweetness countering the earthy bugs and lactic funk. Pretty tame/delicate by lambic/Oude Gueuze standards but still smells authentic.

Tart, puckering and way more sour than I expected. Strong sour acidity but not harsh or acetic. Dry with crisp, champagne-like effervescence and a very strong citric acid flavor. Prominent lemon juice flavor with lingering acetic vinegar but its not solvent like at all. Slightly earthy and musty with a decent lactic presence but overall not too funky. Some light fruit sweetness as well. Feels like there is some artificial sweetners in there. Dry finish. Decent sourness but not very complex and the mouthfeel falls off toward the end of the palate. A decent attempt at the style but kind of tame(once your palate adjusts to the initial sour shock) and one dimensional.

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

750 mL bottle of the 2010 vintage pours an uber clear, light gold color with a fizzy white head. Not much for retention of lace.

Nose is champagne, rotting wood, light sourness and alot of brettanomyces. Interesting, but doesnt really smell all that great for a gueuze.

Sourness comes out of nowhere on this one and lays a surprising slap across my face...in a good way. Acidic to be sure, but doesnt hold the malt and overall complexity many of the finer gueuzes show. I figured the brett would be stronger than the bacteria based on the nose, but it is exactly the opposite here - the brett is hidden on this one. All that said, I am enjoying this one more than I thought I would and for someone who hasnt met a beer that is too sour, it fits the bill well. I like it, in fact I think I will pick up a couple more. More intense than Cuvee Rene, though not as well rounded.

Gueuze-a-palooza 10/8/11; poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass

Produced on 16/12/10

Thanks Walt

A) Light colored - think dirty watered down juice. Very cloudy. Ugly, dead gold color. Big old porous head crackles audibly and is gone in a flash with no retention or lace. Looks pathetic and leaves trails of dried detritus.

S) Smells terrible. The main aroma is soapy fruit juice and apples. No thanks. Swirling turns it into aromas of soapy mustiness. Hints of hand lotion, earthy and wood tones.

T) Tart with a sour kick but it's not really rounded out by much in the way of funk. A bit of dry mustiness underneath but it's mostly just simple tartness.

M) Medium-light body riddles with ample carbonation. Finishes a bit woody and tart.

D) Tastes ok, but it isn't too impressive on the whole.

Sampled in a Duvel glass from a 750ml bottle purchased at Triangle Wine in Morrisville, NC.

A - Gold with a large white, creamy head. A nice steady rise of bubbles. Good lacing.

S - Fruity, funky and earthy. It really reaches out to you and grabs hold.

T - Super tart, lemony bite! I've never had one this strong. I like it but it's completely one dimensional. The tartness covers up just about anything else. No depth or subtleties to explore.

M - Lots of fine bubbles make for an interesting presentation.

O - What a bite! It was worth a try but not one I'd go back to.

Hazy and golden, pours with a very healthy head for a lambic. Aroma of bubble gum and sour cherries. Very tart, dry, and light bodied. High carbonation. Sour grain with some slight sour fruit and oak at the finish. Leans toward the sour side, even for lambics.

4.48/5  rDev +14%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle dated 17/04/12. Drunk on June 27, 2013.

A: This poured a clear (first half of the bottle, hazier for the second half) light gold with tons of rocky white head.
S: It smelled like exceptionally funky oak and dry horse blanket, with some sour milk and vinegar and a little unripe apricot and lemon zest.
T: It tasted like funky oak and earthy horse blanket, with some tart vinegar and citrus zest and a little copper hops and unripe apricot. It had a string and lasting dry sour aftertaste.
M: It was watery with tons of carbonation. Nice light and bubbly body.
D: This was a great gueuze, but not for the faint of heart (or anyone who isn't already a fan of this sour style). It had wonderfully bold but complex scent and taste. It showed an old world character that most modern sours can't replicate. The body was perfect for the style, helping make it easier to drink despite the intense finish. Would likely age for decades, and would probably improve with extra time. Impressive.

750ml bottle into a tulip. bottled on 4/17/2012

Pours a hazy pale golden color with an inch and a half thick white head. Very fizzy and carbonated. Smell is typical for the style - vinegary tart white grapes. This particular one is a bit faint compared to some others, though. As for the taste there is a good initial tartness followed by a big fruity flavor. tart green apples grapes. the overall sourness is less than a lot of other gueueze's ive had in the past. However, because of this there is a very high drinkability. this one is easy to gulp down if one so chose to do so. Medium bodied with high carbonation.

Overall a solid example of a gueuze, though nothing that stands out above the rest. Got this on sale for $6.99 and i'm glad i did. For that price, i'd buy another.

This beer poured a nice light gold color with a small white frothy head that dissipates quickly. The smell is very sour with hints of lemon and musty. Tastes very sour and bitter with a dry, crisp finish. Could use some sugar to cut the intense sourness of the Lambicus.

Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with a finger of loose white foamy head. Head dissipates quickly to leave no head. Plenty of fine carbonation streaming up from the bottom of the glass.

Nose is light, a little lemon, pear, and green apple. A little bit of funk but barely there when the beer warms.

Taste is a bit more interesting, leading with lemon, pear and green apple, a bit of light earthy funk and herbal flavor. Some lingering tartness on the tongue.

Light body and easy to drink, pretty refreshing.

look: 2 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

$8.09 for a corked and caged bottle @ BigTen. 5.5% ABV per the label. Pours out to a slightly hazy pale golden, forming a voluminous huge white head with tons of staying power, irritatingly so because of the champagne like carbonation, ~4.5 carbs or so. Thick layer of yeast in the bottom of the bottle, which on the 2nd pour (which is required because of the damn head) turns this beer into an awfully ugly mess. The aroma is of sour gummy bears, dusty basement, barnyard funk. The mouthfeel is very tart with a very light body. I prefer less carbonation, so if you're like me, let the bottle sit opened for a while. The taste is a recap of the aroma...very tart like sucking on citric acid powder or a mouthful of diluted star-san. No bitterness, no hop flavor, no hop aroma, no malt flavor, no malt sweetness...just one dimensional acid funk. Instant heartburn. Spit up within minutes. I had to take 3 Tums and a glass of milk after drinking 1/3 of the bottle. The rest went down the drain.

I haven't had a ton of Gueuze, but this is not my favorite. Way too dry and one dimensional. I like my lambiques with a touch more sweetness to counteract the acidity and with more malt character. It doesn't taste like pure bile (Like Jolly Pumpkins entire line-up), but it's not far removed. I wouldn't bother buying this again and wouldn't recommended it even to people who like lambics.

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip glass, produced on 4/17/12. This pours a slightly light yellow straw color with a massive off white head which quickly dissipates and leaves nothing. The smells are of funk, vinegar, ripe cherries, malt. The feel is medium with high carbonination. The taste is good, very vinegar like sour, some funk, maybe a little brett, very acidic, my girlfriend thought it reminder her of bile, I find it quite good though. .

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 750mL bottle into a tulip. Bottled 4/17/12.

Appearance: light golden hue with a light haze and an active effervescence. Head pours two fingers of fizzy white foam but dissipates rather quickly with little lace. Not too bad, though.

Smell: nice combination of malt sweetness, a hint of tartness and a moderate funk. This beer seems very well balanced; I like it.

Taste: extremely tart right up front; way more than the aroma would suggest. Funk and sweetness are subdued, at least with respect to the acidity. At the end of the acid is a mild chalky flavor which I think helps reset the palate for the next sip. A very tart, but otherwise balanced and pretty tasty beer. I feel like it's growing on me.

Mouthfeel: light body but big, big carbonation. The creaminess is mouth-filling, but rather evanescent. Good, but not great.

Overall: tart and ... tart. But refreshing and drinkable nonetheless. There are not a ton of gueuzes available in the United States, so I will take what we can get.

Split a 750 ml poured into a duvel glass

A: pours a slightly hazy pale golden yellow with a goodntwonfingers of fluffy white head, carbonation can be seen raising from the middle of the bottom of the glass. A nice light touch of lacing for the style.

S: tart lemon with a giant hint of floweriness, a very faint touch of vinegar. And a very faint barnyard funk. Not a ton of oak character.

T: much like the aroma... Tart lemon with a touch of apple and a hint of vinegar, not much floweriness. Really like the tartness. Very tasty.

M: very high crisp carbonation, almost reminds me of ginger ale, carbonation brings a touch of dryness on the finish. At the same time, lightly sweet on the finish like sour patch kids.

O: this is a very nice gueze, really like the tartness and the way the mouthfeel works with this brew.... If your a fan of a good gueze deffiantly give this a whirl.

Limited edition my arse: already 210 rates on RB and 57 reviews on BA, some might be the same people, but it is a bit of a con stating such rubbish on the labelling.

0.75 Litre bottle: poured into four short tumblers on 23 Nov 2012. Hazy light orange/dirty dull peach/grimmy lemon colours in the glasses: each with a small, thin head of white for a while anyway.

The smell and taste were of bruised cooking apples that had gone sour: vinegarous from start to finish: even the most toothless cider freak I know would have had trouble finnishing off this brew. Glad I didn't pay much for it and also glad I opened it with family and not beer geek mates.

I saw this for $12.49 at a store and said fuck it, glad I did. There was a huge pop when I opened it and then the bottle started gushing. The first wine glass I poured up was bright yellow with a huge white pillow of a head. I'm used to gueuze being orange but this was quite yellow. Aroma was interesting, brett and a bit of mineral. The flavor was nice, hint of brett, mildly sour, touch of lemon, very much a gueuze but also struck me as being similar to Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere. Weird. Overall I am glad I picked this up but won't be buying any more. I will say that this might be a tad better than Cuvee Rene but is not close to the Hanssens/Girardin/Cantillon/3F/Tilquin level.

Bottle pour for the 4th Annual LA Beer Week Beer Festival at Union Station in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a murky light orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with some acidic and fruity aromas. Taste is much the same with an acidic finish on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer that is tasty and easy to drink.

750ml bottle into a tall tulip

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with four fingers of head on a very careful pour. This beer is unbelievably carbonated - lots of bubbles floating from the bottom of the glass. Retention is truly amazing - I get a finger of foam that sits there the entire time I drink the beer.

S: Lemon zest, wheat, and ginger upfront, though none of these flavors are overly strong. Behind this I get some musty funk, but it's in the background for sure.

T: Much more sour than the aroma let on, I get quite a bit of lemon and guava sourness. The beer stays very well balanced between dry and sour, though.

M: Moderate thickness with strong carbonation, though not as distracting as I thought it'd be based on the appearance.

O: A flavorful, well balanced gueuze. Solid, but not extraordinary.

Review from notes.

A: Pours a slightly hazy peach color with a smallish white head on top. Decent retention with a little bit of lacing on the sides.

S: On the musty/funk side with less of a tart/sour aroma. Some straw and barnyard aromas with a bit of lemon and oak.

T: A flip from the aroma with a more sourness. Lemon rind, faint green apple, and some vinegar. Still some light funky/brett and barnyard flavor.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation, rather dry finish.

O: A pretty good gueuze, would seek it out again as well as the other Timmermans gueuzes.

From 09/27/12 notes. Picked up a bottle of this at the Whole Foods on Bowery in NYC a few weeks ago. Bottled on 17/04/12, poured from a 750ml bottle into my Lost Abbey stemware.

a - Pours a hazy bright yellow color with one and a half fingers of fluffy white head and high carbonation evident. Head lasts for 1 to 2 minutes and leaves some light lacing on the glass. Looks pretty good.

s - Smells of funk, very acedic, light citrus, oak, some brett, and some oranges. Very nice nose; it is super funky.

t - Tastes of funk, vinegar, sour fruit and sour citrus, oak, very acedic, earthy notes, orange, and some bready malts. Taste is not as funky as the nose but is much, much more sour. Again, nice.

m - Light body and high carbonation. Very dry and acedic mouthfeel.

o - Overall a really nice funky and tart gueuze. Nose is funkier and the taste is tarter, but I liked it quite a bit. Would certainly buy this again.

Pours a very pale, hazy straw gold with a finger of wispy starch white head. Great lacing.

Subtly funky on the nose... lemongrass, wet hay, wheat, slight citrus qualities, very smooth.

Very refreshing - sweet and tart, fresh lemonade, white wine, lingdonberries, rhubarb, very bright, crisp.

I was surprised by this one. Good stuff.

A: Pours a very hazy medium golden yellow in color with light to moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a huge three finger tall white head that very slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of tart light fruits with some lemon/citrus, hay, and light to moderate amounts barnyard funk. Nice complexity and very enticing.

T: I just wish there was a little more tartness to the flavor of this beer than there is... Light to moderate flavors of fruit tartness with lighter notes of lemon/citrus, funk, and acidity. Very light vinegar hint.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp with some acidic prickliness and dryness in the finish.

O: Easy to drink. especially for the style - this would be a good beer for someone to get started in this style due to the light amount of tartness. Very refreshing and even sessionable (probably the only beer in this style that I have said that about). Enjoyable and I would be happy to drink this one again.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color and poured with a massive three finger high bright white head that took a long time to die down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.

Appearance: Light gold/straw. Lively carbonation. Head is bright-white, extremely bubbly, and creamy. Carbonation keeps the head retention up. Some vestiges of lacing. Slight haze.

Smell: Hay, yeast, and lemons. Big grassy component. Mild earthiness. Yeast drops big hits of clove, ripe banana, and even a touch of bubblegum. It's like someone hit a tripel with some wild yeast. Musty. Grass and yeast.

Taste: Lemon flesh. Tart citric bite. Some nice layers of grass, hay, and damp earth. Mild wheat tang. Pale malts. Delicate with a biting layer of tart. A touch of oak with a building lactic sourness. Mild fruitiness, something akin to apples and grapes.

Mouthfeel: Light and refreshing. Crisp and touch dry. Relatively clean finish with a tiny bit of seltzer on the finish.

Overall: Bright and delicious.

Smells like a funky tripel, but drinks like a well-blended and delicate gueuze. It's definitely something special. I'll probably round up another couple bottles before it disappears.
