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.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle from 2010, nice clear orange pour with very fizzy and carbonated white head, aroma has notes of big straw, grass, funky earthy notes, some slight vinegar, nice lactic and lemon, slight hints of a white grape, pear note as well, pretty nice! Taste is soft sweet lemon, biscuit, some nice white grape, peach, and pear notes, hints of a earthy dust and lemony notes, hints of acetic acid in there but just slightly finishing with more lactic, burns a bit, but nice on the finish with a bit more berry and fruit. Nice and tasty, though a bit lacking in the funk.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Bomber. Poured a hazy pale gold. Aroma and flavor were mild barnyard funk, lots of citrus, tart, dry, some wood. Not terribly complex for a gueuze but quite nice all the same.

yngwie (16045) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle, 75cl corked. It pours an unclear, golden body under a minimal sized head. More a thin layer of bubbles than a proper head. Lemony, barnyardish aroma, quite uncomplex, but really pleasant. Tart, dry, medium bodied with pleasant carbonation, and citrusy, funky flavor. A bit on the citrus side maybe, especially in the finish, but it’s a pleasant beer anyway, especially compared to most of the other Timmerman stuff. 111229

hopdog (10491) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 23, 2012
750ml, caged and corked bottle. ****GUSHER ALERT**** Not a total loss, but a gusher none the less. Cloudy yellow pour with a large sized head. Citrus, funky, lemony, and some fruitiness. It was tart, but not overly tart. I liked this and could drink a bunch of this.

milewide (1896) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 23, 2012
A tame gueuze. Can’t help but compare withLindemans Gueuze Cuvée René, which I buy by the case: +Very cloudy, with lots of sediment +Very full head -Not nearly as sour -$3 more for 750 ml bottle -Harder to find

floydian1 (1285) - FNQ, Australia, - AUG 22, 2012
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.

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.
