Draft. A hazy golden beer with a white head. The aroma has notes of vinegar and grapefruits. The flavor is sweet with an acidic edge and primary notes of grapefruits, but also light notes of horseblanket, leading to a tart finish.

Sampled at Of Love & Regret - Pub & Provisions; January 2013
The beer arrives from the tap with a lightly hazed, gold color. It is topped by a pale, head. The aroma smells tart, with lactic acid notes, and with touches of urea. There is quite a bit of fruit character in the nose as well, and this is backed by an earthy grain character that has notes of dried straw / hay to it.

The flavor is not nearly as sour as I was expecting; there is a definite tartness here but it is fairly soft, especially for a Gueuze / Lambic. This has a hay like grain character to it and it is lightly funky with an earthy, sort of musky character to it.

This is definitely quite a bit different from the bottled product; it needs more sourness, but it is still quite good in the end. It has more of an earthy & funky character to it than biting tartness, but in honesty, even the former is held well in check; clean, would be a good way to describe this. Somehow comes off as being a bit like a tamed Gueuze and I wonder if not being bottle conditioned has an effect on this (but I can’t see that being the total explanation here).

Draught in a flute. Pours a hazy golden color with a moderate white head. Nose has sour fruity elements to it, and the taste is much the same, with a bit of a bite to it. As a whole, it reminds me of a dry champagne, with the bubbly feel and all.

NikkTwist (2003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2013 Draft at Monks then later at Eulogy. Poured a hazy pale peach. Large bright white head that left some lace. Strong sour. Citrus and amber fruits. Nectarines. Peaches. Plums. Lemons. Limes. Chardonnay. Gentle caramel sweetness fuzzes out the edges just a bit. Fuller body than one would expect for a gueuze. Sharp and fruity. Complex but not subtle.

Color is like honey: bit hazy yellow, thin layer of creamy head and lacing. Strong funky aroma has ripe berries (blackcurrant), yeast, bit spicy. Quite sour flavor, dry, soft feel and low carbonation, long sour and aromatic finish with berries and citrus, medium body. Flavor-kick to those who enjoy it. Works fine for me at least between the mild ones.

Juseq (158) - FINLAND - JAN 7, 2013
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!

teorn88 (3599) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2013
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.

ROGUE (2145) - Newark, Delaware, USA - DEC 27, 2012
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.

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. It’s tilquin with 50% water added
