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.

djd07 (13688) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Bottle as shown. Pours a hazey yellow with large frothy white head that lasts awhile. The aroma is citrus and tons of funk. Thin mouthfeel with a crisp tartness and lemon with nice sourness in the finish. Easy to drink lots of carbonation, a very impressive gueuze from Timmermans.

heman (885) - 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 (386) - 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 (7731) - 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 (130) - 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.
