Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: lacqueredmouse on 07-18-2011

The Gueuze Tilquin - draught version (4.8% alc/vol) is a spontaneous fermented beer, produced by blending a low alcohol lambic (called Meerts) and 1 and 2 years old lambics, all fermented and aged in oak barrels. It is unfiltered and unpasteurized, and it is refermented in the keg. The lambics used were fermented and oak aged in our installations. These lambics are coming from worts brewed by Boon, Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon breweries.

On tap at Novare Res

Served in a tall glass with an emblem on the edge nice pale yellow straw color. 4

The aroma is tart sweet with an apples. The sweet and tart linger with an earthyness

The taste starts with a tart apple and slowly an almost woody earth flavor finishes nice (280 characters)

On Tap at Delerium Cafe in Brussels

A- Typical thin head with a slightly cloudy gold color. Looks like a nice Geuze.

S- The nose is more powerful than some others I've had with fruit (apples, cherries and lemons), oak and bright grain but also with strong notes of sweat and bile that are both intriguing and off putting.

T- Incredibly complex with none of the vomit/sweat of the nose. Instead the flavor starts brisk with lemon and decaying fruits with cherry, oak (lots of vanilla and some light tannins) coming in and giving way to a lactic puckering finish. One of the best I've had in this category.

M- A touch fuller bodied and chewier than typical for the style, and I enjoy the full sensation it gives. High carbonation combines with the lactic acid to keep it puckering.

D- Aggressively sour but also a bit chewy and complex. This is a geuze that let me contemplate its flavors over and over and never disappointed. The smell was really the only set back. (969 characters)

$3.50 on draft @ Duckworth's Park Rd - Charlotte NC.

Looks the part - straw colored brew with a lot more carbonation than I expected, massive cloudy head and a tad of oily lacing lingering on the now empty glass. The nose is very floral, charred wood and lemon are imminently present. The taste is surprising, not as tart as I'd hoped and very dry, lot's of wood there. Interesting how much pepper is present. Very nice beer that fell short of my expectations. But I'll definitely give it another shot down the road. (517 characters)

The smell is very intriguing. Like flowers that have been marinading in the summer sun for a long time. Lemony funk, musky wood, mystery flowers all really really well combined. Flavor is dustily dry, lemony sour, apple, floral, woody, musky. Harmoniously wacky. Like it a lot. (277 characters)

I have no idea how my original rating on this beer was only 3.5. For me this is the gold standard for gueuze. I love Drie, Hanssens, Girardin and Cantillon...but Tilquin is my favorite.

The balance of funk and oak is perfect. It reminds me of aged champagne and I often drink and serve it as a stand in. It is nearly perfect with food. A beer above description, so I won't try.

Great. (386 characters)
