Timmermans Oude Gueuze Lambicus

I have not had a lot of sour beers, but I had some. The Belgians brew some amazing sour beers. Some of the worlds best sours. Timmersmans Oude Gueuze Lambicus, 5.5% ABV is brewed in 2012 and bottled in 2015, by Timmermans Brewery in Itterbeek Belgium and they have been brewing since 1702. This is made by blending different lambics together to make an Oude (old) Gueuze. This beer is the Europe’s best sours. Timmersmans Oude Gueuze Lambicus pours a candy orange color with almost no head, and what head that is there is gone in an instant. There is also some sediment with in the bottle, which means that this is bottle conditioned. That means the last step in the fermentation process is done in the bottle. Aroma is quite fruity with nice apples, some pears and some funky scents and no I don’t mean a weight room or locker room type of funk. You know like a might find in white wine. There is plenty of light coming though. Taste is fruity on the front followed by a nice tartness that turns to a nice sourness almost like a sour fruit candy apple and bit of pear mostly. But as this beer warms it becomes a slightly more sour. The mouth feel is light and refreshing with a nice sour fruit finish and a sour apple after taste. Timmersmans Oude Gueuze Lambicus is a B+. The beer is good but I think it needs to more pronounce on the fruit but not too much, just a little. Other than that is a good beer. But I would not have more than two, or have it before having some other beer. It would be to sour if you had three and it would take the taste away from the other beer you would have following this. I recommend trying it. Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
