Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

Recently stumbled across my notes from The Festival 2012. Lets do this!

A - Poured a nice hazy dark straw hue with a big fluffy two finger head that fades to leave a thin blanket.

S - Nice lemon, citrus notes, subtle funk.

T - Taste is very smooth, balance, tart lemons. Super nice and dry on the finish. Complex.

M - Mouthfeel is solid, very solid. Tart, dry, puckering, incredibly sessionable.

O - Overall a very, very good gueuze. Definitely worth the pour if available on draft.

On tap into a gueuze glass. Reviewed from notes dated May 26, 2013.

A-The beer arrived with a tall, two-finger head of dense, barely-off-white foam. The head had decent retention atop the slightly cloudy, golden liquid.

S-The smell is moderately to intensely sour with big notes of white vinegar, tart/sour apple, and white grape. The funkiness is moderate and gives a slightly barnyard/horse-blanket background to the more dominant sour flavors.

T-The taste follows the smell for the most part. There is a lot of acidic, lactic tartness that pulls at my saliva glands from start to finish. A little bit of doughy bread lies underneath and the aforementioned horse-blanket is also present, but these flavors are mostly overwhelmed by the dry, tart, sour flavors.

M-The feel is medium body with a light hit of assertive, champagne-like carbonation that fades quickly on the palate. The finish is a touch wet and watery.

O-This is a good gueuze, but not my favorite. It doesn't have the wine-like complexity of a Cantillon, for example, but that does not mean it is lacking in flavor. On the contrary, this brew packs plenty of sour punch. I would happily drink more of this if my stomach could handle the acid and I could regularly purchase it in Colorado.

Served on-tap at Monk's Cafe

A - Pours cloudy golden amber with a one finger tall white head leaving spotty trails of lace down the glass.

S - Smells of musty basement funk, light fruitiness, damp earth, apple skins and some light acidic sourness. This draught version has quite a bit more funk than the bottles I have come across.

T - Starts off with the musty funk and fruitiness from the nose but it is much more restrained in the taste while the acidic sourness levels are ramped up a bit. Hints of grass, green apples and some light sweetness round things out. Finish is pretty dry, lingering on the palate long after the finish.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Dry, crisp feel throughout.

O - I liked this version. It has all of the flavors I would expect it to have and it is easy to consume. A little too pricy to have all of the time but every now and then is fine with me.

@ Tasty Beverage

Poured from a pitcher due to its large, ridiculously thick looking, rocky head. It's more of a hazy, slim white ring by the time I get my pour. Hazy golden body. Funky, sour lemon aromas along with barnyard, leather, slight sweatiness, and light oak. Crisp, tart, lemony citrus, earth, a sort of fresh herbal quality, and hay. Acidic, dry, and massively refreshing with a slight lingering bitterness. Delicious...lots of bright, fresh flavor for 4.8%.
