1x 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.
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 flavour will win you over by its subtlety of taste in which lambic never means sourness.
1x Kriek Retro This lambic beer has instant appeal thanks to the hue of its ancestral garb and its fruity aroma which is so pleasant to the nose. The flavour of its old lambic nevertheless accounts for most of its sour flavour, which is made only slightly smoother by its fruitiness.
1x Lambicus Blanche There is no other beer like Timmermans Tradition Lambicus Blanche anywhere in the world. It is made by bringing together lambic with the process used for brewing beers with malted wheat. By the addition of spices such as coriander and dried orange zest, the beer has a light, fruity flavour, deliberately cloudy and subtly spicy. Should ideally be drunk from an authentic stoneware jug.
1x Timmermans Tradition Faro is a beer made by adding candy sugar and water to lambic to mellow its acidity. In the 19th century, Faro was very popular in the Brussels area. Various folk traditions were associated with it, and this ambrosial drink flowed abundantly, thanks to its relatively neutral but extremely pleasant flavour. Today, Faro Timmermans is still brewed using the methods and recipes of days gone by, and meets with unanimous approval.
