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.

The_Osprey (7585) - 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)

Zilverenmaan (107) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 12, 2017
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.

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.
