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.

W aromacie mocno owocowe, gruszkowe, trochę szampańskie. Po nalaniu piana szybko zanika. W smaku mocno kwaśne, słone, cytrynowo-gruszkowe. Doskonałe na gorący wieczr.

Een heerlijke geuze. De geur is champagne en appel. Het is zeker een champagneachtige geuze. Een heerlijk vol, zuur en fruitig bier. Hout komt ook mooi terug in het palet. Klasse.

Gehbe (305) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 7, 2016
Cloudy golden with a medium unstable head. Acidic and funky smell with some fruity and spicy notes. Tastes rather sour than dry, too much lactic acid for my taste. Palate is fairly milky and not that crisp. Nice, but I prefer crispier and drier character.
