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.

Hazy golden pour thin white head .... aroma of barnyard, sour lemons and brett .... taste was tart and sour sweet and just right on the tongue very good blend and highly drinkable dry and a little lively mouthfeel .... flavors were earthy light barnyard, brett, the tart and sour fruity lemony flavors were balanced just right with sweetness ..... I think this brew is a little underrated

Hazy hay blonde, tiny lacing. Intense classic gueuze aromas, horse blanket, dandelion with a touch of...pee. Really intense attack in mouth, highly acidic, lemony, refreshing with an intense acidic finish like a freshly squeezed lemonade. Not the most funky or complex of a gueuze, but a really pleasant one, built for hot summer nights.

Cloudy yellow pour with a small fizzy head. Nose and flavor are marked with lemon, wheat, good sour funk, oaky tannic acidity, and tart grapefruit. Crisp, refreshing an quenching mouthfeel. Nice.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of wheat with some tart lemons, Belgian yeast and some light funk. A very nice smelling gueuze. The flavor is very tart and acidic. I get a lot of sour lemons notes, as well as some horseblanket funk, wheat and Belgian yeast. There is also a little bit of white pepper mixed into the flavor. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice gueuze. Glad to have this one available here in Texas.

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 (750ml, 2009 Vintage) Ive got a sore throat and the tart potency of this gueuze is a soothing and refreshing antidote ...the dry barnyard notes almost putting out the burning fire in my throat
stinky ass nose .. rotten cheese, wood, sweaty cooking apples ...all great shit of course for any Lambic fan..... dull orange color , flat, but in the mouth the texture is bitting , abrasive ,yet inviting y..white grapes, leather , cheese and bone dry seas of acidity ...there’s a richness in a suble backdrop too...

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 9, 2011
tepid gold, white head goes to ring, tepid. Nose is rind, acetic, apple and berry, fatty and oily. Flavor is light, bit acetic, grapefruit, bit stinging through the finish. Bit thin, small bubbled carbonation, acetic finish with low malt, funk. As close to unblended as I’ve had outside of carbonation.

Hazy straw with a small white head. Cheesy acidity in the nose, complemented by nectary funk, bubblegum, and dry earthen oak. The flavor holds woody acidity, nectar fruits, mild acetic acid, leather, cider, and oak tannins. Medium body with hige pillowy effervescence and a dry bubblegum finish. Surprisingly tasty.

750mL c&c. Pours a hazy peach with a thin, white head. Nose is detergent, plastic, phenols, moving to pineapple and melon. Taste is lemon, small grapefruit, small melon ad jackfruit. Quite intensely sour. Nice complexities. Lactic citrus palate. Love the leather, citrus, and big grapefruit character.
