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.

Lambics often have a tartness which can be an acquired taste. In this blended beer, where 1, 2, and 3 year old lambics are combined, not to mention the additional in-the-bottle refermentation, the tartness is smoothed to a silky sheen, for a taste just about anyone can get behind.

2017-2018, 7%.

Medium golden, foam dissipates relatively quickly.

Nose has upon first pour musty cellar notes and a fair amount of funk, but this changes to a steady but lesser amount of barnyard, a bit of citrus, and especially an inescapable impression of the aroma of white wine.

In the taste the citrus comes up front and settles on a distinct impression of grapefruit. Aftertaste combines brett with pleasant but considerable acidity. As the beer opens and warms, stone-fruit and cellar notes rise. Mouthfeel is smooth for the style.

A very good gueuze of the tart and citrusy type.

2016-2017, 6.4% ABV, Best By 22/03/2027.

Imported by TWELVE PERCENT LLC Brooklyn, NY

This beer pours a beautiful deep golden yellow, almost amber, slowly poured and without any head bubbling up. I’ve read that this year of Oude Gueuze was noticeably flatter than usual. I got that vibe right away from the lack of active carb or head produced from this beer straight from the bottle.

The nose has a nice initial combination of musty white grapes and tart, zesty citrus. On the back end are even tones of earth and that horse blanket aroma, with a lightly ammoniated, pungent moldy quality. Complex, funky, and wonderful.

Dry, funky, white wine and acidic fruit. Zesty flavors of sour grapefruit and lime are quickly picked out. Those organic, earthy qualities emerge nicely in the flavors, complimenting with notes of oak and barnyard hay. The gueuze style when done correctly is so complex and always tough to pick out every nuance. So good.

Tart, lightly acidic. Funky, with some noticeable tannins and a warm finish. Champagne-like in its carbonation and bone-dry finish.

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.
