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.

Enjoying on draft at Top Hops, NYC.
Pours a clear golden amber color with a thin pillowy layer of bubbly head. As it dissipates, it leaves a thin ring of lace.
Tart, sour and funky aroma reminiscent of lemon, dry cider, vinegar, green grape and white wine.
Tart and sour yet not overly acidic. Enough complexity to make it interesting. Flavors of sour green apples, green grapes, , lemon pith, some grapefruit, and overall vinous in quality.
Light and bone dry. Amazing drinkability and refreshing. A real treat!

Consumed 12/2017

White head. Clear golden yellow color.

Nice funk with a nice sweetness. Hay and wet basement. A bit of funky cheese. Has some nice citrus notes as well. Lemon shows the most. For how young this gueuze is, it is drinking really well. Mouthfeel is really nice. Smooth with the right amount of carbonation.

On draught at Moeder Iambic, appearance is dull, opague gold, with a few lazy bubbles and small white collar.

Smell is lemon seltzer funk. Really fresh zestyness, but at the same time pleasantly dirty.

Mouthfeel is dry, light bodied but not thin like one might expect from the ABC.

Drinakability is high. A perfect refresher for sitting in the sun on the patio with a bunch of Iambic lovers letting life drift by....

Tap @ Moor, Bristol - Pours golden with a small white head. Nice lacing. Aroma - notes of fruits - orange, oak notes, brett overtones. Taste - Medium body with hints of fruit and oak with a nice medium tart finish. Very drinkable even on a hot day.

On tap at Pizzaeria Paradiso - Georgetown.

MF - Dry and very minerally with a not unpleasant metallic taste in the finish. Like sucking on a copper penny.

A - Pours clear golden yellow. Darker than expected.

T - not too tart. Citrus flavors.

On tap at Moeder Lambic, I think this was €4.5? Looks like tilquin gueuze, orange, good head. Aroma is full and musty, lots of Brett. Flavor is lemon, brett, mildly sour, tasty and I think easier to drink than the bottled version. Great gueuze.

oh man, this is so good. something i have wanted to find for a long time, definitely a different blend than the stuff they bottle, with these lower alcohol lambics blended in. its stunningly woody and weird and complex, this is the essence of gueuze, and this is one of the best. not as carbonated as i would have liked it to be, but thats really my only critique of this. really farmy and more funky than sour, with only moderate acidity, especially compared to some of the other tilquin beers, but an almost overdeveloped wild character, complex and fruity brett, notes of red apple and white wine and oddly enough mustard seed, not sure where it comes from, just one of the esters here, but there it is. wheaty malt base of course, aged hop complexion, grassy non bitter, smooth and with some body for how light it is on the alcohol. i think this is every bit as complex as the bottled versions, awesome blend! more carbonation would really make this for me, a little bummed its not effervescent, but thats the nature of lambic sometimes. a treat to finally get into this!

Pours a golden hue with off white head. Nice funk on the aroma. It's lightly tart, but clean for lambic. Less of that red pepper character I've gotten in some gueuzes. This isn't technically gueuze, but it's a super drinkable beer. I love this and if I could have this all year round, I would.
