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.

This is one of the tamest lambics Ive had. The strength of this beer is that its refreshing and easy to drink. The weakness is that it isnt very complex or interesting. It does have lambic character, however, with plenty of sour grapefruit and some pine needles and barnyard funk. Its just not as wild as the really good lambics.

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.
