A drain pour. Smelled OK but tasted like a sour pear mixed with watered down urine. Horrible.

Tap, PP Dupont. Hazy darker marigold orange with a thin white head. Slightly musty, sharp lemon, grass and intense mineral notes in the aroma. Cobweb, dusty, minerals and a sharp citrus middle ending with a slight bit of cheese. Lighter body with tiny, tight carbonation. Superb

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A tangy/tart gueuze. Very good but I prefer the bottle version
How: Tap at Grünerløkka Brygghus, Oslo Norway (listed at 4.5% and not 4.8% like currently on ratebeer)
The look: Cloudy dark blond body topped by a small white head
In long: I was expecting a lighter version of the regular Tilquin, but what I got was something more tart, more lemony, more green apples and a bit less funky than the few bottles of Tilquin I drank. Surprisingly the few bottles I had were easier to drink than this lighter tap version. Not sure if it was specific to this batch or if the difference between the bottle and draft is always the same, I haven’t had every batch of the bottle version and certainly not had every batch of the Draft version. This Tilquin Gueuze Draft Version is a very good beer, but as a true Belgian Lambic it is a little bit below average. Another lambic I drank in a public place, another opportunity to perfect my “Discreet Left Buttcheek Lift Manoeuvre”.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fra fat på Cardinal, 4,8%: smaker heldigvis adskillig bedre enn den lukter. Overraskende frisk syrlighet, og med god drikkbarhet. Det sier mye ettersom jeg vanligvis ikke liker surøl i det hele tatt.
