3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught. Pours murky yellow/light orange with a white head and some chunks floating! Aroma is tart funky yeast, citrus and fruits (apples and pears). Taste is consistent with aroma. Mouthfeel is lambic indeed - smooth, thin and tart. Aftertaste is fruity at first but turns tart fast obviously. This is funky!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. It pours a yellow colour with a medium white head. Aroma is nice with citrus, dust and oak. Taste is very dry and lemony with some green apple and tangerine tartness. Very citrus forward gueze. It has a really well balanced acidity with oak and a dry, mildly leathery finish. I love me some Tilquin.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at State Line Liquors tasting. Pours a golden yellow color with a two finger white rocky head and a bit of lacing. Sharp, tart funky aroma loaded with straw, barnyard, and lemon citrus acidity. The taste is both tart and sour and has earthy flavors from the yeast along with some hints of lemon citrus. Light body, good carbonation, dry finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy orange and yellow pour. 1 finger pillow like fluffy white head.
Nose is grassy, lemon and very yeasty.
Taste is very much a watered down version of the bottled gueuze. Still a lot of lemon peel and horsey wet hay funk. Some grass and tart dry finish but this is a gueuze that is not better on draft. Itís tilquin with 50% water added

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Draft @ Novare Res. Pours a peachy gold with two finger white head that sticks to the glass... Bright aromas of dusty funk and sour lemony fruit even a hint of orange rind. On the palate its solid carbomation delivers a complex barrage of flavors ranging from light soft peach to a dank basement funk ...dusty dry funk bomb on the finish !

Draft at Moeder Lambic, Brussels. Hoo-ha, what a fuckiní treat! Itís hard to imagine anything better on a warm early evening, and this was so fresh and tart and delectable. Iíve actually not yet tried the bottled version, but this young gueuze was more ripe than dry, with tons of fragrant funk and a bit of hay to it. Handsome looking, goes without saying, nicely balanced acetic palate. Finish is awesome, like tart apples and brie.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light amber golden colour, white head, quite firm for a gueuze. Aroma of rubber, lemon, funk and citrus peel. Tart flavour, sour lemon, citrus peel, light bitter. Quite light body. It feels a bit thin, but that works for this beer, making it very refreshing. Light bitter finish, tart, lingering lemon peel.
Really refreshing beer. Itís one of those beers I could drink the whole evening.
(Draught @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas)

Draught, Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas, Brussels. Yellowy gold colour with a nice white head. Funky barnyard and citrus in the nose. Acidic, fruity flavour which steadily dried out. Delicate and soft mouthfeel. Superbly drinkable. Quality stamped all over it. Winner.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Spuyten Duyvil for Zwanze Day 2012. Pours a dark cloudy brass color with a thin and quickly dissipating bone shaded head. The aroma is funky with lemon, apples, champagne yeast, and barnyard. On the plate the tartness is milder than many others in the style. The flavor profile slowly develops and intensifies with green apples, lemons, and a very mild doughy sweetness. The mouthfeel is very round and soft with low acidity. Loved it.
