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.

A: Pours a hazy golden yellow with 2 fingers width of slightly off white colored head, which quickly dissipates down to almost nothing. Leaves zero lacing.

S: Wet, musty funk is the first aroma I get. This is followed by oak and tart, lactic citrus. Banana, sour lemon-lime, vinous, sour white grapes.

T: Somewhat puckering, tart sour characters hit the palate immediately. Belgian yeast- banana follows on the finish. I also get white grapes, oak, hay, lemon. Not much funk at all, but Im ok with that, as I prefer the tart/sour notes.

M/D: Medium body, heavy carbonation that gives it a crisp mouthfeel. Drying on the finish. Leaves you eager for the next sip. Very nice.

O: Overall, an excellent gueuze. Really enjoyed this one. Pricy bottle, but thats to be expected for the style. Highly recommend.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours a clear golden straw color with ample carbonation. 1" of eggshell white head forms, which has good staying power and decent lacing.

Smell: Tart green apple and lemons, lacto sourness as well as brett funk. Smells pretty sour.

Taste: Lemony tartness and lacto sourness up front, with tart pale fruit and brett funk on the back end.

Mouthfeel/Overall: Mouthfeel is light with about the right amount of carbonation. Overall, a really good gueuze. Very solid example of the style.
