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.

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.

Perfectly balanced 2016 Gueuze, soft acidity, fruit and dry. Just delicious.

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.
