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.

Abijen (2571) - s-Hertogenbosch, - JUN 27, 2013
Pours a beautiful orange beer with a not very long lasting head. Smells delicious sour. Taste is heavy sour with a very little bitter end.

On tap at Festival Belgijskega Piva in Ljubljana. Pours a hazy, darker golden color, topped with a medium small white head. Soury white wine nose with wine vinegar all over it. Slight vanilla and spice. Strong pucekry sourness with a bit spicy finish. Hard sourness, fresh and light body. Nice one.

heman (929) - Tychy, POLAND - MAR 27, 2017
Barwa złota, piwo idealnie klarowne. Piana tworzy się i całkowicie zanika z głośnym sykiem. Aromat jest wyraźnie dziki, w charakterze stajni i spoconego konia. Pojawia się także trochę nut siana i skrzastych. W tle owoce: cytrusy, mirabelki. W smaku dominuje potężna kwaśność. Białe pieczywo, nuty stajenne i kwasu mlekowego, w charakterze kiszonych ogrkw. Po przełknięciu pozostaje wrażenie owocowości. Dominuje bardzo wysoka kwaśność, ale czysta w smaku.

Arcanor (408) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2017
375ml bottled 2014-10, brewed in 2011. Pour hazy golden with a rough bubble foam that reduce to a small cloud and a lacy ring. Aroma in acid, smell like ham slice. Taste is from lemon, salty limonade, a bit soapy and fruity note. Dry and very tart. Medium body and medium to high carbonation. Long tart, citrus and light malty finish.

The_Osprey (7835) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2017
March 2017 - 37.5cl cork and cage bottle in Brussels apartment, as Timmermans Oude Gueuze, 5.5%, 2016 bottling. Cost 2 Euro! Even with the very unfavourable exchange rate thats 1.85. Dark orange, slightly hazy, translucent, sparkling with a foamy white head, leaving full lacing. Aroma is pale wood, elderflower, lemon zest and more musty wood. Body is light, tingly carbonation, smooth. Taste is lemon and cherry tomato, quite rich and a touch overly acidic perhaps, tangy and tart, woody notes with a sherbet finish. Impressive intensity of flavour but that acidity got a bit grating. Still, if I lived in Brussels, for 2 Euro Id have no problem drinking this on a very regular basis. (3.9)
