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.

Pours pale yellow into a tumbler. Bright white meringue head fills 2/3 of the glass. The meringue slowly recedes leaving spider lacing. Sweet yeast, caramel and lemon aromas. Medium bodied with sour lemon upfront turning to sweet dry caramel in the lasting tart pie-like finish.

Rusty (1543) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2015
Pours a golden straw color with a effervescent white head. Aroma is funk, lemon, sourness, oak, wild yeasts and pretty awesome. Flavor is tart, acidic, slightly oaked, funky gueuze goodness. I love sour, I love super sour, and this beer is way under-rated if you want it hard, sour, pounding your palate and want it now.........all for less than $15. Git Sum!

I guess you have to like this kind of beers. So much acidity in this brew. Hopefully all this lactic acid is good for the gut flora...
