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.

750 ml bottle poured into a RR stemmed glass @ 50 deg f.

A: 4.5 - Huge carbonation, the cork would have never stayed in place without the cage. Large off white fluffy white head composed of large to medium bubbles that slowly dissipate with great lacing and a continuous flow of bubbles from the base of the glass. Color is a straw golden yellow, crisp and clear, simply gorgeous.

S: 5.0 - O god damn Yes! Very characteristic and definitely a classic Gueuze aroma. A nice toasty bterry aroma with a hint of lactic sourness. Very earthy and quite similar in aroma to Cantillon's classic gueuze. Very citric and acid fruit like. This smells amazing!

T: 4.5 - Wow, very smooth carbonation with a gentle sourness and great but subtle Brett funk with very earthy citric notes. Very drinkable and refreshingly dry.

M: 4 - Very dry and refreshing with a slight bitter and a little bit tanic finish. Gentle Brett character that lingers and friendly lactic sourness. Very citric in acidity but very nice and very classic to the style.

O: 4.5 - This is a very tame yet complex lambic. A definite classic flavor profile but a little too smooth and clean. I couldn't wait to drink this but that's most likely my problem. It will definitely improve with age but a must have without to truly get a feel for this amazing lambic. A definite must try.

Rating is based on Batch 1 from 2010/2011. Also had 2012/2013 side-by-side which was also nice, but not quite as good as the older iteration. Both poured from bottle into gueuze glass at Monk's in Philadelphia.
