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.

375 ml best by 12/20/22 (bottled 12/20/12)

Hazy amber golden pour with quickly reducing bubbly white head. Pungent aroma of barnyard funk, grass and hay, sweet peach and grape, lemon peel. Aromas carry through to the taste; coats the tongue with malty sweetness and fruit flavor (peach, orange, bright lemon peel) mixed with earthy funk and lactic acidity that dries out towards the end in oaky tannins. The finish has a nice lemon peel pop I like in a Geueze but the finish is marred by some astringent bitterness like biting into a pill. I opened up a 2012/13 when it fresher and it wasn't quite ready yet; It's now coming together nicely and may benefit from a little more time. This is a great gueuze that is easier to find but not quite as good as 3F or Cantillon.
