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.

Restrained funky aroma in a golden pour. Similarly laid back tart taste with all the subtlety and complexity one expects from a Belgian master.

nathanvc (894) - Brugge, BELGIUM - JAN 30, 2018
At 't Lusthof, Denderwindeke. Labeled: 2013-2016. Pours clear golden/orange with a lasting, foamy, white head. The aroma contains barnyard, leather, yeast, green apple, vinegar, wood and dough. It tastes medium to heavy funky sour and light hoppy bitter with some wood touches; long, drying, tart finish. Medium body, slick texture, soft carbonation. I had my reservations before tasting it (with Timmermans being in John Martin's hands) but they did a good job here.

pintbypint (3977) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2018
375ml green bottle with cork and cage. Brewed in 2013, bottled in 2016. Very sloppy pour resulted in a dark golden beer with haze and dark little floaty specks. White head fades to a ring. Nose - lemon, vinegar, sour. Taste - lemon, vinegar, sour apple, sour peach, wood. Not very funky, but very nicely soured and sharp and dry. Not sure why I took so long to try this, it's a solid gueuze.

gyhallmanti (836) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 37.5cl bottle split with a friend, thanks Arie! Pours a slight uazy amber colour with a thin off white head. Aroma of slight vanilla, funk, bitter lemon, dust, apple, other indefinable fruit. Taste is soft sweet, low bitter, medium sour with a moderate dry finish. Notes of dust, tart, vanilla, wood, funk, peach. Texture is oily to watery, light bodied with soft carbonation

Klimaet (3131) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - DEC 12, 2017
Bottle from 2016. Pours almost clear coppery golden with a large frothy white head. Aroma has a lot of green apple up front, light hay, grapes, citrus. Taste is pretty bitter, lightly sweet, lots of pear, green ripe apples, leathery, and a subtle hay-ish finish. Pretty nice gueuze, especially for the price, but nothing very interesting.

yoxik75 (474) - Wroclaw, POLAND - DEC 10, 2017
Uzupełnienie profilu notatki. Piana niewielka i znika. kolor zmętnione złoto. Aromat owocowy kwaśny, dzikich drożdży, octowo winny. Smak intensywnie kwaśny z szorstkim chropowatym finiszem, cytryna wiśnie i ocet, czuć też w tle beczkę, dębinę wanilie. Piwo mocno kwaśne (nawet jak na mnie) i to trochę dominuje inne smaki, ledwo się przebijają. Piwo ok ale mogło byc lepiej. Dobre.

UPDATED: FEB 7, 2018 (bel orange, nez vieux bois, citronnelle aigre, bouche bergamote acide, amertume sèche de zest de citron)
