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 Gueuzes 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.

alexsdad06 (9672) - Ohio, USA - OCT 27, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a hazy light golden color witha large fizzy white head. The aroma was acidic, tart, light citrus, funky, mild vindgar and hints of cheese. The flavor had a nice acidity, tart citrus, vinegar, a mild spicy note, fairly active mouth feel, acidic burn to the finish.

Leighton (19502) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli and Sander. Pours hazy gold, lightly effervescent with a fine, creamy white head. Nose has some tangy lemon, mild funk, tangerine. Medium sweet flavor with stirring sour citrus, some squash, more tangerine. Medium bodied with fine to average, massaging carbonation. Clean and sour to finish with further tangy citrus fruits, mild sweat, light jammy citrus. Quite drinkable and refreshing.

jbeatty (1245) - New York, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle, 09/30/2013. Pours golden orange, slight haze, head fades rather quickly to a nearly still surface, yet active carbonation feeds around the ring of the glass. Aroma is peach and green apple, tart with hint of acetone, earthy funk with lots of wood, touch of vanilla. Taste is sour citrus fruits, acidic and puckering, quite dry with wood in the finish. Light body, sparkling. Perhaps a bit too tart for my liking, but still decent.

priscoppi (24) - - SEP 27, 2013
Bottle: Very big foamy head, goes down slow. The smell is fresh (citrus like) and sweat bitter, like a heavy pilsner (more hops and stronger smell than pilsner). Color is lemon yellow. Taste citrus and a little bit of spices. Fresh and reminds of a summer blonde beer (not white beer). Pretty typical blonde beer. Light and freshly bitter. Citrus like fruity. Note: no sugars added and leaves no flakes.

Clear sparkling yellow with small white foam ring. Aroma is quite sour, sour apples . Taste enormous fresh, quite sour to. Long lasting sour aftertaste. You have to get used to this, but it is OK. (Velp 201309) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (4329) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2013
0.375l corked bottle. A lovely looking blurry kinda apricot colored thing with a small quickly almost disappearing sidesticking white thing that could be a head. Really nice gueuze nose with un ripe berries, sour grass, sour lemons, sour green strawberries, hay and some brett. I really like. Mhm, not to sour or acidic in the taste either. The pickled lemons are there, but they are so integrated and just really refreshing. Im noticing that I have almost finished the bottle before I had a chance to rate this finish and I think thats a good thing. Light notes of apple vinegar in the finish. Mhm.. Nice! 02.08.2013

Fritz123 (1535) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2013
From bottle share in Boca Raton. Thanks Derek! Small snifter. Yellow hazy pour with thick white head. Decent lacing. Aroma of funk, citrus (lemon mostly), earth. Taste was very sour with lemon, barnyard funk, brett. High carbonation with an almost metallic tartness. Dry finish. My kind of Gueze.

Bottle from Appalachian Vintner. Pours yellow with 2 inches of white foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Big tartness on the nose. Has a bit of a steely quality. Fairly tart on the tongue. Finishes clean. Very nice.
