A-Aggressive cork pop, then a gush. Pours a very cloudy yellow colors head is white and bubbly. Head dies off leaving bubbly lacing.
S-Very funky and rustic. Tart lemons, damp, rotten wood. Very musty. Hay and earth. Smells like it will be super sour.
T-Inexplicable sourness and tart fruit. Lemons, apples, white grapes. Soggy oak. Earth and sour cheese. Pale malt. Vinegar.
M-Lighter bodied but nearing medium. Airy feel. Very bubbly. Puckering. Dry. Acidic.
O-An intense Gueuze. Packed more punch that I anticipated. I was happy with this; I was expecting something less authentic, so this was nice.

Poured into teku. Perfect blend of sourness, creamy mouth, and low heat. Wonderfully drinkable and not too tart. Still the sourness does come through and doesn't disappoint. A nice lingering sour aftertaste as well. Doesn't seem overly dry to me. Instead, it has a crispness to it. If anything, any dryness is subtle. Excellent representation of this style. Never disappoints.

A: Peachy gold and cloudy with fine bubbles rising fast and furious, seen only with close observation. 3 fingers of white foamy head.
S: Awesome sour, hay, barnyard, funk, old aging wood from the barrels, macaroni, burnt rubber, volcanic rocks, mineral quality. Lemons and peaches, nectarines and apricots.
T: Sour lemon juice, rubber, macaroni and aged wood, volcanic rocks, mineral qualities all come in. A hint of the stone fruits mentioned above also comes in, macaroni or boiled pasta as well.
M: Thick acidic, with lots of fine epervescent carbonation. Dry and vinegary.
O: Definite 9 out of 10 from me. Excellent on all accounts. To know Boon and Cantillon’s lambics amongst other great breweries’ are in this, makes me appreciate it all the more. I found this in Whole Foods, Birmingham AL, and am drinking it in Hopkinsville, KY.

2013/2014 printed on the bottle. Pours white amber with a white meringue like head. Super frothy and very fine bubbles. Surprisingly good lacing for a lambic.
Fresh fruit mingling with barnyard funk in the aroma. Thoroughly musty and rustic. Spices, oak, earthy blue cheese, and berries. Very complex but surprisingly balanced and approachable.
Tart upfront quickly followed by tea and mushroom. I often get overripe fruit in wild beers, but there's an interesting fresh fruit quality in this one. Bready malt can still be found given the relatively young age of the beer. Complex and drinkable.
High carbonation with loads of tannins. Firmly sour but not mouth puckering (for me at least).
An excellent complex and balanced gueuze. I'm sure Tilquin will soon be in the ranks of Cantillon and Drie Fonteinen.
