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.

wonderful beer, tart, funky, crisp, dry, effervescent, slightly fruity and has some nice white wine character. great mouthfeel and super refreshing ... nothing is better on a hot evening and I imaging this would be an excellent beer to drink with a variety of foods.

Aged for a year.

Pours a completely clarified pale orange with a scant one finger of white head produced with moderately aerated pour. Some retention and good lacing. Aromas are equal parts funky, vinous, sour-fruity, floral, and sulfurous. Flavors largely follow the nose, with maybe a hint of skunkiness in the back. Tartness is not overbearing and complements the apple and raspberry flavors that are present. Tasty but not particularly complex. Clean, effervescent mouthfeel with no hop bitterness to speak of. An excellent meal-pairing beer

83/100

500 mL bottle dated 2016/2017, with a best by date of 9/2/2027. Poured into Aslin anniversary glass.

L: Deep, clear golden. Very nice. Looks like a Sauternes. Not much head upon pouring, degrades into just a thin ring.

S: So here is what I get: Yeasty, oaky, sour apple, chardonnay grape. Perhaps a touch too sour and perhaps that mellows with aging? Probably should have gotten another bottle. But this is awfully good as is.

T: Definite chardonnay notes here from the oak barrel. Green apple, slightly sour but not as much as nose would indicate. Seems a tiny bit raw despite the aging it has already had, but still a real treat here on the East Coast.

F: Light to mediumish body. Pretty lively carbonation. Very solid construction. Sour might be just a tad out of balance, but it's hard to say. Nice and crisp and pretty easy to drink.

O: Definitely looking forward to trying more of these over the future.
