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.

This was pretty tasty. Certainly on the extreme side of sourness, but without the huge funky aroma some of these have. Nice.

On tap at veronus. Hazy gold body with a thin white head. Particles are present. Smells of coriander, orange, lemon, quite yeasty and funky. Wine-like dry and sour. Warhead candy-type sour.

Zoret (116) - Badalona, SPAIN - NOV 12, 2014
Aromes tipics de Brettanomyces i afruitats de raïm, taronja i llimona, també podem trobar quelcom de pebre blanc i de cera. De color daurat i escuma blanca. En boca es àcida amb tocs citrics que recorden molt a la llimona. També trobem albercoc i un punt de fusta. Cos mitjà-baix, molt efervescent i amb caràcter una mica aspre i arrufant. Cervesa àcida.

pivnizub (9004) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - OCT 30, 2014
Bottle (0.750 ml): Pale golden to golden, slowly collapsing loose White head; mainly fresh citric or citrussy flavours in the nose, some vinegar, subdued cellary Aromas; moderate to solid dry sour flavour, barely medium bodied, carbonation still visible; even though very dry, a residual sweetness is detectable in the all in all citric finish. Very good sample...

75cl bottle from Hipercor, Oviedo. 19-02-2014.
In short: tart ale.
Pours hazy straw colour, with some nice white head. Poor head retention, some lacing. Grapy, citrusy, tart aromas. Light body, high carbonation, crispy texture. Taste is tart, grapy, fruity. Very enjoyable.
