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.

Appearance: It has a nice hazy golden/orange color to it. It has a nice off-white head that dies down moderately and leaves some spotty lacing.

Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of a lemony tartness, funk, green apples and a slight breadiness.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has a bunch of tart lemons, sour green apples and yeasty funk. A sour punch in the face.

Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a very nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with great flavors and aromas. World class Geuze!

Big, fizzy carbonated head. Extremely lively dark orange/copper brew. Head retention is fine; lacing is spotty but clingy.

Big funky nose of wild yeast; slightest bit of skunk; lemon citrus and a hint of sour, wheat, dust, musty cheese.

Flavor follows the nose, with a barely-citric sourness up front; straw, hay, wheat, and wood in the main body; and a huge note of musty funk at the end.

Medium-light feel, with enough body to feel full and oily in the mouth. The sourness is light enough that there is little puckering. Long, semi-dry, sticky finish. Great retention. Lively, with little sting.

This is a good Gueuze, but I don't feel it ranks up near Cantillon or 3F Golden Blend for pure overall taste and experience. Nothing Tilquin does here is poor, but only the mouthfeel stands out as truly superb. Worth a try.
