Poured a nice hazy orange with a decent head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of strawberries, tartness, and something reminiscent of blue cheese but not as strong in a very good kind of way. Strong sour notes tend to overpower the palette. There is dry bitterness on the back end and lemon. Nice carbonation. The one negative was an iron of taste notes. This is worth trying but the sour tends to overpower most everything else.

Love the crisp tartness. My first Tilquin and I will continue to seek them out.

L) Pours a beautiful ruby-tinted amber. There is a white head when agitated, but it quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing.

S) The aroma is just oozing with incredibly tart dark fruit notes and a crisp acidity that tickles the nose all the way to the throat. Plenty of green apple, stone fruit, and unripened plum with very little aside from a slight honey-like smell from the malt to round out the intense fruity acids.

T) It tastes as the nose would indicate, but it is even more acidic than anticipated. This baby drinks like a warhead. Notes of black cherry, dark fruit, unripened stone fruit, green apple, passion fruit, guava! This is a sangria of acid, and what small amount of malt aroma I could pick up in the nose I am having a difficult time relocating on the tongue.

F) Medium carbonation and body. Incredibly spritzy. Crisp and refreshing. Pretty ideal for the style, not much more to say really.

O) I would give this a pick up any time I saw it, especially to keep on hand for friends who may have never had a true lambic experience.

Bottle shared with friends. Pours a golden/orange liquid, with a small white head disappearing quite fast. Aromas are funky, barnyard, citrus zest. Very good spontaneous beer, medium sourness, low bitterness, quite fruity, tart, funk. Loved it!

Hmmmm
What happened here? Very flat pour, quite a flat beer.
Aromas and taste and all muted, and whilst quite sour, it almost struggles to be a gueuze. Not a lot of fruit flavours.
Need to try again.
