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.

37.5cl corked bottle. Hazy light orange pour with ample fizzy off- white head. One of the sweeter geuzes around but there are still appreciable tart citrusy lambic components to the flavour profile. Not as bad as one of their syrup infused atrocities but still not a great example of the style.

Nice clean and well done Gueuze. Very funky aroma and a nice mellow taste once past the initial sourness. Pours a light yellow. Part of the 2012 Downtown LA Craft Beer Crawl.

Hazy golden color with no head. Barnyard funky smell. Taste is pretty sour and citrus. Highly carbonated and dry. Overall I liked this beer had a nice sourness very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml bottle from Downer Wine & Spirits. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow color with a white head. Aroma is sour, citrus, lemon. A little light on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sour, lemon, wheat, some yeast, with a light sour finish. A nice gueuze.

Bacterial (2449) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with thick white head, no lacing here! Nose is bright and a bit fruity. Nice mouthfeel, tartness is strong then quickly fades into a pleasant funk.

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 37.5cL bottle. Good pour in tumbler, looks remarkably like a pils, actually. Medium-yellow, clear. Pungent aroma, appropriate for the style. Sour, light, not too much else in there--sour apples, maybe. Not incredibly complex but pretty enjoable. Pleasant mouthfeel, and good aftertaste.

This poured the color of apple juice with a white fuzzy head that dissipated quickly. As the sediment became slightly mixed in at the bottom of the bottle it represented a more pear-like color. The smell was fruit and vinegar. The taste was sour up front and it lingered for some time. Apple and grape flavors were there. The palate was crisp and clean and very reminiscent of champagne. The finish was not as dry as I expected. This is a bottle best shared. Good but not a style I gravitate toward.

Bottle (750 ml). Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma of barnyard, fruits and wood. Taste is medium to heavy barnyard/horse blanket with lemon and wood. Dry and acidic mouthfeel. Could use a little more balance. Still a good refreshing gueuze.

Very cloudy yellow-gold with a large, rocky, whitish head and light lacing. Aroma of funky yeast, wheat, must, and sour apple and pear. The taste is almost mouth-puckering tart, but there’s also a substantial sweetness. Medium bodied and extremely fizzy (the only real drawback). Overall, ok tart lambic. It’s too fizzy, and it’s devoid of subtlety or complexity, but I’ll enjoy it nonetheless.
