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.

Had this on tap twice at Federal Taphouse, Harrisburg PA. Was from different kegs, and it showed. The first time, this Gueuze was absolutely amazing, an excellent blend of fruity hints, without being overwhelming fruity, a little tartness, picked up hints of the lambic flavors and body. It was absolutely amazing, especially since it was $12 a glass.

A month or two later, had the same Gueuze from the same bar, new keg... it was so bland, lacked all the diverse flavors and notes I had experienced the first time. The color was also noticeably lighter, was not very enjoyable.

Bottom line, either the bar didn't handle the keg properly, or this varies significantly in quality over batches. I know to always expect variations but this was night and day.

A - Pours dark orange with a decent white head that faded thin

S - Funky, light fruitiness, apple and sourness.

T - Initial musty funk and fruitiness followed by acidic sourness levels. Hints of grass, green apples. Dry finish with lingering sourness and fruit.

M - Medium bodied dry with moderate carbonation.

O - Pricey but worth it on occasion. Balance of sour, funk and fruit notes made for a very well done gueuze.

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.
