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.

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%.
