Tilquin Oude (Gueuze Tilquin)² À l’ancienne

Brewery: Gueuzerie Tilquin
Country: Belgium
ABV: 7.6%
Style: Belgian Lambic (Gueuze)
Other Notes: Oude (Gueuze Tilquin)2 is the result of a batch of regular Oude Gueuze Tilquin overcarbonating in the bottle. Those bottles were poured back into oak barrels for further maturation before being rebottled a second time

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Beer of spontaneous fermentation, the Oude (Gueuze Tilquin)2 is made from the blending of 1, 2 and 3 year old lambics aged on oak barrels. Due to oversaturation in the bottle, this beer was put again in oak barrels, and then bottled for a second time. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, this beer is refermented in the bottle.
