Oude Gueuze is an appellation controlee: its label is protected. Timmermans Oude Gueuze's special flavor derives from its time-honored 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 flavor. After it has been produced, Timmermans Oude Gueuze, which is refermented for four months in the bottle, continues to improve for 20 years.
Discovering the world of the Brettanomyces, the name given to the spontaneously fermenting wild yeast at the heart of the legendary lambics of the Senne Valley, is a fascinating experience. This little marvel of bitter flavor will win you over by its subtlety of taste in which lambic never means sourness. A wild and fresh aroma is combined with a completely emancipated taste from the very first sip, leaving a flavor of authenticity on the palate while maintaining all the mystery of the Brussels gueuzes.
