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.

Pours a beautiful orange beer with a not very long lasting head. Smells delicious sour. Taste is heavy sour with a very little bitter end.

From 37.5 cl bottle in tulip glass. Pour is a hazy orange with a quickly disappearing head. Nose is citrus with a lot of green apples. Very sour. A bit of funk. White grapes. Taste is very funky. Almost like cider. White wine and oak barrel notes. Punchy sourness. High carbonation. Very good gueuze for a low price!

75cl caged and corked bottle pours up with a clear deep gold body that supports a thin white head. The aroma is nice and offers up farmhouse kind of funky flowery meadow, a spicy woody sort of note and then citrusy acidic lime to lemon tartness. The taste is pulsing with nearly abrasive acidic tartness and tart candy notes that have a citrus edge to it. There’s a funkiness going on well off into the background that is just too mild to gain anything against the acidic tartness that rules this experience. This is a solid refreshing puckering brew but a bit over the top for my taste.

Sour smell. Lactic sour taste with a bit of wood character to it. Overall a pretty tasty sour.

Swaroga (1353) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 14, 2014
Butelka 375ml. OCZY : piwo jest mętne i ma kolor pomarańczowy. Piana jest średniej wielkości i jest biała. NOS : w zapachu piwo jest wyraźnie kwaśne o nutach cytryny i niedojrzałego zielonego jabłka. Przebija się również typowy dla tego stylu zapach tarty i białych winogron. Po wstrząśnięciu piwo wyostrza wyżej wymienione aromaty do których dołącza bardzo delikatny aromat torfu. USTA : mocno gazowany o bardzo malutkich bąbelkach. Piwo ma dosyć wodnistą konsystencję która bardzo się pieni. Piwo jest mocno kwaśne. Przy tym trudno się go napić bez przegryzki. Ta kwaśność dominuje aż do końca gdzie przebija ziołową gorzkość. Posmak jest cierpki i kwaśny o nutach bardzo mocno kwaśnej cytryny czy kwasku cytrynowego. ODCZUCIA : mało subtelny kwach. Przy blendowaniu ktoś miał przepalony smak bo trochę przesadził. Kwaśność jest owocowa i można by powiedzieć przyjemna ale za mocna. Piwo wyzwanie. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 6/10 styl : 0

750 cc from Whole foods Plymouth. Pours hazy and highly effervescent bright golden with 1-finger frothy and well-retained white head. Nose is tart fruit, lactic acid, earthy funk, yeast, wood. Tastes tart, fruity, with apricot notes, mid-palate earthy woody notes, and some lactic tartness in the finish. Complex and enjoyable, and stays tart throughout.

"This was ok. I’ve come around on the style. This had no faults but also nothing that stood out. Lightly sour, acidic...lemons and olive but light and prickly on the palate. "

Timmermans ltd edt, brewed 2010 - bottled 2013 barrel fermented. Een Geuze, dus zuur spul, echter tijdens het proeven ervan minder zuur als verwacht. Van de meeste Geuze’s springt bijna het glazuur van je gebit af, echter is deze wat geraffineerder. Als je hem een tijdje laat ademen wordt hij voor mijn gevoel nog zachter. vind het bier ook géén vervelende wrange of andere bijsmaken hebben. Kan wel zeggen dat ik ervan genoten heb, Wat zeg je Edwin ????... ja echt heb van een Geuze genoten... ga er géén kratten van leegdrinken maar af en toe één van deze is ok !
