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.

Kita (2176) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 22, 2017
Bottle, 0.375l, shared with Patrick. Pours clear orange amber color with thin quickly diminishing head and soft visible carbonation. Aroma of grape skin, wine, yeast, funk and some tannins. Taste starts light sweet and sour grainy and woody, following is yeasty, musty, tart and vinous, mouthfeel is dry and astringent, while finish is almost without any bitterness. Light to medium body, thin texture and average carbonation in palate. Cheap and very tasty...

Hatespinner (2) - - JUL 2, 2017 does not count
Amazing, very sour taste of apples (and maybe grapes) and a bit of citrus background. Small, white head disappears in a matter of seconds. Yellow/orange, hazy color. Definitely would recommend.

3.4
Franckg (1742) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 2, 2017
Bouteille millésime 2014, bue après environ 3 ans. Robe ambrée pâle assez claire où se baladent quelques particules et surmontée d’un mince voile de mousse. Arômes de citron, pomme verte légèrement caramélisé, bois fraîchement coupé, orange sucrée. En bouche, acidité citrique de niveau supérieur, pomme verte pas encore à maturité, malt boisé un peu âcre. Longue finale vinaigrée. Texture plutôt huileuse et collante, corps mince. Bien mais l’attaque d’acidité est un peu trop intense.

Bottle @ brewhouse&kitchen, london/brewed 2013. Apple-like taste, sourness kicks in at the end. Very dry. Nice ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jimbo2 (506) - DENMARK - MAY 19, 2017
Very balanced. Fairly light body, touch of sour apples. Super elegant. A winner.
