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.

Bottle from capitol beer. Has a nice sour aroma. Reminds me of Russian river temptation. But not quite as good.

Gription79 (2779) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. This is a great gueuze. Dusty, earthy, acidic, citrus, floral hops, malty. A touch thin but very tasty.

Hopper (827) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2012
750ml bottle thanks to Ughsmash. Golden pour with a pillowy white head. Aroma has a funky mustiness, lemons, and sweet honey. The taste has sour lemons which is the dominant flavor profile. The taste is a step up from the aroma and admittedly is better than I had anticipated. The carbonation is high and the palate has a medium level of mouth puckering.

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - OCT 10, 2012
January 6, 2012 - with blankboy, garthicus, gregclow, jerc & mabel. 750ml corked & caged bottle c/o blankboy (Limited Edition). Cloudy gold with an average diminishing fizzy/frothy white head. Classic sour - lemon, lanolin, funk plus floral background bitterness. Taste follows, very smooth, just a touch of old dry oak, mild alcohol - has a lemon drop sweetness in the background. Thick body, syrupy, hugely carbonated, long sour/dry finish, really really drinkable.

jfb (5246) - Freising, GERMANY - OCT 6, 2012
(bottle, blind tasting) pours a hazy golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of grain, citrus fruits and old yeast, slightly doughy, with notes of grass, oranges and sweet spices. flavour is mostly sour lemons and citrus fruits, quite one-dimensional, with a light yeasty funkiness, floral hops and a doughy finish. medium-bodied with lively carbonation.

jnkor (352) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Aroma was wild with wheat. Aroma was mild and pleasant. Color was pale, too pale, but with a large head. Taste was light, not accentuating any flavor. Had a good sour element.
