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.

Maakun (1640) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 10, 2015
UPDATED: APR 11, 2015 Bottle from 2013 at home. Clear orange/goilden with fast disappearing white head. Very sour lemon, grapes, gooseberries, spices, musty bread, some sourdough and funk, light hay, old white wine vinegar. Taste is very deep sour. Medium bodied with slick feel and prickly carbonation. Interestig beer, maybe a bit too acidic for me and a slight musty aroma, but overall not that bad.

Well that was a surprise. Expected something fresh and fruity and I have to admit that after a lot of focusing I could find some hints of apples and maybe lemon. It is sour and bitter. Color is nice, aroma as well but this is not my taste, not even for hot summer.

JorgeLee (1461) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2015
Botle from Bier Tempel, Brussels. Amber colour, decent sparkle, not much head. Quite tart and sour. Sweetish. Nice, but to me didn’t quite have the depth of fruity and funky flavours that you get from the best gueuzes.

Shark_Pants (469) - AUSTRALIA - APR 2, 2015
Golden colour with minimal fizzy head. Aromas of vinegar, musty and funky timber, with pureed apple. The taste is mouth puckeringly sour - apple cider vinegarand lemon predominantly. Highly acidic and dry finish. Not really my thing.

Corked and caged bottle split two ways. Hazy dark golden pour with some lacings. Lots of funk, balanced acidity, barnyard, apple skin, vanilla and some oaky notes. Pretty good!

Na, das ist doch mal wieder ein nettes, recht klassisches Geuze. Zwar kein Knaller, der einem die Tränen in die Augen treibt oder diese spezielle Rauchigkeit entwickelt, aber was wir hier bekommen, das ist vollkommen ausreichend. Schön süffig, feine Säure, etwas Zitrone, ein paar Beeren und eine gewisse Brotigkeit. Klasse.
