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.
