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.

Vintage 2011/2012.

The colour is pale orange (10 EBC); the liquid is clear. The two finger white head sinks quickly to a thin lid, leaving no lacing. Lots of large bubbles are visible.

The smell is tart (vinegar) and fruity – green apples, tangerines and lime. Vanilla and minerals, quite a lot of iodine. Some horse/stable and touches of acetone and lactose.

The taste is fresh and tart, passing notes of white wine vinegar (no distilled vinegar). Iodine and iron, pickled cucumbers and ripe apples. Medium body. The aftertaste is less tart with some malty sweet flavours; they are very clean. Earthy notes and some bitter herbs. The dry tart gets comes back in the finish, as does the iodine.

The carbonation is strong; the mid-sized long lived bubbles are fresh. The liquid is tart with some smoothness.

A solid and balanced gueuze, perhaps not the most complex or deep but very refreshing.

Pours light sedimenty yellow with sparse head which dissipates into a fine layer with lacing hither and thither.

Funky, light fruit - lemon, lime. Oaky.

Light pear and lemon. Grape peel. A medium amount of sour. Good ageability I would say.

Medium to high carbonation - which seems to fit. Light mouthfeel.

Overall nicely done. A tasty little sour that lacks depth, but with a few years or perhaps a decade, who knows what is possible.

Cloudy with a straw-gold color. Medium, white, compact head with medium- retention.

Lactic, sour melon, lemon zest, horse hair, lemon-lime soda, oiled baseball glove, cheese rind.

Sour candy, cheese rind, gym socks, sour cherry, old leather, sour lactic tone, grapefruit, dirty.

Lean mouthfeel that is very linear and acidic. Very dry.

Super funky, even for a style that is sought out for it's funkiness. Maybe a bad bottle? Honestly, just this side of undrinkable.
