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.

Poured from a 12.7 oz cork n cage bottle into a Bell's tulip.

A- pours a dark gold color with a 2" frothy white head. Clumps of small bubbles cling to the glass.

S- vinegar, straw, citrus and a light cherry aroma.

T- tart citrus (grapefruit), pale malts, vinegar, light spice and earthiness.

M- light body and medium carbonation. I am surprised how mellow the carbonation and acidity is!

O- 6/10 sourness. very good Geuze. Very drinkable with the lower carbonation and nice tart citrus with vinegar.

Thanks to franklinn for this gem!

Served at cellar temp... lively pear gold body capped off with a eggshell colored head that swells and retains better than any other gueuze in recent memory. Nice.

Tastefully sweet and sour... some grassy funk. So fresh and so clean, clean.

Crisp and tart, with a sourness that doesn't overwhelm the palate. Some semisweet, underlying citrus. Finishes up sweet, sour and surprisingly wet; which makes for an incredibly thirst quenching and drinkable beer.

Yum - thanks Frank!
