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 - Vintage 2010 - Funky sour lemon grass. Cloudy yellow and no head. Lemon and right into a throat tingling sourness, funk and horse blanket muted. A very accessible sour. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rosenbergh (10382) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 1, 2013
750 ml bottle. L2010. 0110. BBE 2030. Vintage 2009 says the cork. From finestshop.be.
Clear golden colour with a small frothy white head. The aroma is tart berries, spices, yeast and acidity. The flavour is very tart with red berries and citrus. Acidic. Sour. The balance and yeast is missing. It’s still quite challenging.

jackl (7063) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2013
Sample @ Timmermans during TdG ’13. The pour’s light hazy gold with a small white head. Nose of lemon custard, parmesean, grape must. Little else. Not an expansive aroma. The taste is simple lemon juice, brett, compost, earth. Solidly refreshing, abrupt finish. Crisp palate, active carbonation. Overall, OK, but not close to the best in the class.

CanIHave4Beers (3999) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 19, 2013
I am almost positive that I rated this.... glad I found the paper rating again.
Pours blonde with a small head.

The aroma is both fruity and a touch acidic. The bouquet features some funk and sour cherry, some dustiness and animal perspiration.

The flavor is very sour and lemony, briney and fairly acidic. Lots of that sort of earthy/bitter fruit rind character.

Not too bad.

reggiedunlop (3657) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 15, 2013
Pours a hazy very pale yellow with a large foamy white head. Aroma has musty tropical fruit and faint leather...very faint tart lemony notes. Flavor has notes of peach and pear that quickly fade to leather, funk, and tart lemon. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry with mild lingering fruit.

gEUS (1723) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2013
750 ml bottle - pours light straw yellow with a thin yet dense looking head. Aroma of vinegar, citrus peel, citrus. Light body with immediate acid lactic attach which lasts way beyond the finish with a ctiric taste, small tart flavour as well. Now this is a real acid gueuze - not your average one, yet quite special. Definite like. I hope they make more of this and less of their commercial... [fill in whatever you think is appropriate]...
