Notes: This is a higher abv version of the Oude Gueuze Tilquin containing the blend of 1, 2 and 3 year old lambics in oak barrels. Due to over-carbonation, the beer underwent a second barrel aging process before being bottled a second time.

L - Fantastic golden opacity, decent lacing and foam for its weight.
S - Holy shnikes, where it shines for me; like smelling bruises and barnyard. Wonder I didn't get a yeast infection snorting this last night.
T - More barnyard sour fruit than you can shake a stick at; seriously, like drinking yeast that's been pummeled. Almost too tart (what the hell is wrong with me?).
F - Again, stunning carbonation that is graceful, seamless, great finish. Just pucker up, lover"person." ;)
O - A world class beer that I cannot deny, will be revisiting this annually. Cheers.

203-2014 bottle with a best by date in 2026 so it must have been bottled in 2016. Slightly darker than the OG Tilquin I think. nice gueuze aroma, bit more sour flavor than the regular. Thicker mouthfeel and body too. A good gueuze but I prefer the OG.

Batch 1 from 375 into snifter

Pours thick and deep orange minimal head
Smell is big funk and lemongrass
Taste is numbing blue cheese funk with tart lemon peel
Chewy and thicker than the average gueuze

Overall a lovely beer. More like a very old straight lambic but fantastic none the less

Thanks Cameron for this share!
Clear orange with almost no head.
Lovely nose of gueuze, cheese, funky, slight acetic acid, sourness, citric acid.
Complex and simply delicious, everything you want in a gueuze is right here, herbal, a big cheesy, lemon.
Wow! Sadly the Spontangooseberry from Mikkeler looks ordinary right after drinking this one!

Best before 30/01/2024.

This has been in my cellar at least 2 years.

Pours a cloudy slightly murky golden yellow color. A small foamy white head which disappears immediately. The body has a nice fluidity to it.

Nose is sour, slightly soft, and funky. Vinegar, yeast, bread, oak barrel,cheesecloth. No character overpowers another.

Upfront the flavor is tart with accents of vinegar and lemon. Some oak way in the background. There is a mild yeast flavor but it is more wild than bready. The finish is funky and earthy with lemon coming through. Hints of oak and vinegar linger on.

Low soft carbonation with a slightly metallic and vinegar like consistency. Dry overall.

Great gueze with flavor profile but I prefer a smoother and less dry feel.

This one pours a dark clear orange-ish amber, with a very small fizzy head, and no lacing.

This smells like tart lemon, barnyard funk, chalky minerals, grapefruit rind, and oak.

This is incredibly complex and delicious. It's got that delicious house Tilquin lambic flavor. It's quite lemony, and a bit herbal, in a minerally sort of way. There's a nice and unexpected candied peach flavor. It's pretty tart, and has a sort of white wine vinegar flavor. There's also some hay and light wheaty funk. There's just a hint of oak, as well. This so so complex and tasty.

This is light bodied, with a somewhat lower level of carbonation.

Tilquin makes some of the gueuze in the world. This is absolutely delicious.

Pours a light amberish golden hue. Smells musty, cheesy, barnyardy, Some nice sweet pepper character. A little cheesy. Nice tart, not too sour, but nicely funky, lambic with nice depth.
