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.

Aroma zoals het hoort: onweerstaanbaar. Smaak klassiek: niet te zuur, niet te droog/samentrekkend, niet te bitter, maar van alles wat aangevuld met een rijkdom aan fijne smaken die doen denken aan het boerderijleven uit lang vervlogen tijden... Smaak mist echter wat volheid: naar mijn gevoel nogal waterig en wordt te sterk overheerst door een overdadige koolzuurprikkel.

De geur is niet veel speciaals. Troebele kleur. De smaak is geweldig, perfect graad van zurigheid. Geweldig bier.

Lots of sour grapefruit and some cracker like soup leftovers. Orange pour with decent head and lacing. Tangy finish, pretty acidic. Bottle.

Brewhemia (281) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 6, 2017
This gueuze was way to acidic to my taste. I had to take a Samarin. Not at all good in my opinion. Nothing to add balance to the acidity.

Press slightly hazy golden with an off white head. The aroma has bugs, light sourness, acidity and some vinegar. It has a crisp body with prickly carbonation. The taste has saltiness mixed in, rustic slant and more sweetness than typical for the style. Good.

Paardenpis en goudsbloem in de neus. In de smaak een fijne cider, de lambiek zuren, weinig hout en een verfijnde nasmaak.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Hazy straw coloured with no head. It has a very sharp apple and lemon flavour with more powerful sour apple on the extremely dry tart finish. Good.
