COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oude Gueuze is an appellation controlee : its label is protected. It is also known as the champagne of beers, especially as it is only available as a limited edition. Timmermans Oude Gueuze’s special flavour derives from its time-honoured method of preparation. It is a blend of old lambic, which has been aged for three years in wooden barrels, and young lambic which ensures spontaneous fermentation in the bottle. The different lambics are carefully selected by the brewer to obtain a perfect flavour. After it has been produced, Timmermans Oude Gueuze, which is refermented for four months in the bottle, continues to improve for 20 years.

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 13, 2013
Corked bottle from Beer Planet, Brussels, bb 2028
Darker shade of blond, hazy, with giant rocky head. The aroma is initially mild; but under the foam it reveals apungent acetic smell, followed by some cellar smell too, and bit of lemon. The mouthfeel is very dry, without concession to any smoothness, and the carbonation is very high; very acidic, with strong lemon presence, but clearly missing the funky character of the best Lambics, the animal, the cellar, the cobwebs and the rest.
Pleasant sour drink.

kramer (5800) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy gold body with a large fizzy white head. The nose is pretty hard, kinda minerally with a little bit of cellar funkiness and a little bit of cork. Not much on the acetic side. The flavor is dry and crisp, some green apple, light to moderate oak, a little acetic, but not crazy. Not especially complex, some light sugars on the finish. Light to medium bodied, very fizzy and lively, not quite all the way dried out. So so overall, decent enough, but not in the top tier for the style.

Tinco (613) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2013
Hazy yellow with no head. Aroma: cheesy, barnyard, hay, alot more funk than I expected! Nice citrus notes. Taste: medium sour with notes of citrus, chees, sulfur. Nice and funky!

DeclanT (59) - Tervuren, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2013
A good gueuze but definitely not a great gueuze. 75cl bottle, BF 2030, so pretty young. Very citrusy, and not a sharp as I like my gueuze. I’d recommend as an introduction to the genre as it’s pretty cheap compared to the other brands.

DesertDevil (685) - Arizona, USA - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours the color of hazy light home-bottled honey. Unique aroma of honey, some melon, raspberry, with an old mellow sourness. Awesome blend of sweet citrus (lemon), honey, and sourness. A really nice gueuze.

PriorL (3069) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAR 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Blind tasting off 18 current available Gueuzes. Shared with Mathieu87. Appearance: stable nice head, clear blonde beer Nose: fruity, horse blanket, barnyard, grains, sourness, sugars are directly noticeable. Taste: lot’s of fruit, nice complex fruity sourness. Sourness seems to come from lacto. It starts off really sour but aftertaste is rather fruity and sweet. Complex beer. Amazing beer, though doesn’t really taste like a traditional geuze, it’s a very good one! Drank again at ’The Great Belgian Beer Dinner’. (Edited)

dark orange, medium head Red wine grapes, kiwi and pineapple. Some lemon wow. Very tart, very dry, very acetic. Just uber sour bomb but the finish has no residual sugar and overall, a biting experience. this one would age very well medium carbonation

Bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a thick frothy head. Nose is a little bit sour with some citrus. Taste is much the same, though smooth.
