Alengrin (3396) - BELGIUM - APR 26, 2015
Geuze on tap, but the brewer eagerly explained to me that according to the definitions, it still qualifies as an ’oude geuze’, since lambic are simply blended in kegs to referment. Interesting... Thin but stable, snow white head, misty golden blonde colour. Lovely aroma of white grape peel, old sherry, hay, green apple, yoghurt, some wet leather, lemon zest... Crisp and very refreshing taste with sharpish apple acidity, lime and softer, sweetish fruits, background wheat sourishness, medium carbo, medium body, long and dryingly tart finish with all the lambic complexity, bit woody, very quenching. As good as any traditional geuze, but perhaps a bit less ’seasoned’, complex and mature than a geuze from the bottle.

Yves (2540) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - APR 25, 2015
Shared with wim at Zythos bierfestival 2015. Clear blond colored beer with small white head and no carbonation. Fruited aroma. Full sparkling palate. Finish is sweet fruited sour. Nice!

asheft (2739) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2015
On tap. Pungent lambic burnt match and white grape aroma. Slightly hazy light orange with little white wisps. Very dry, sour beer with less burnt match than aroma. Gentle pickle juice, woody white grape, crisp and watery clean finish. Light body, moderate carbonation, mouth puckering.

AgentAle (1116) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
Aroma is an earthiness, funkiness, sour grapes and vinegar. Taste is again a funkiness, heavy acidity and vinegar. Finishes tangy. Appearance is a cloudy gold/orange with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Gerbeer (2401) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
On tap. Pours a hazy gold with very little head. Aromas of barnyard, apples, peaches, and cheese. Flavors of apples, pears, and apricots with a bit of malt and citrus. A little less tart, but smoother and creamer than the bottled version.

simont1 (439) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2015
UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 Heavy funk, earthy, barnyard, lighly sour, lemony with a very light feel to it, not as carbonated, but significantly bigger funk.

King_Alex_II (671) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 24, 2015
Golden color with little foam. A bit weird smell. The sourness is perfect with little but fitting carbonation. The aftertaste is a bit strong but the sourness convinces.

SinH4 (1131) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2015
On tap at Moeder Lambic. Golden color with small white head. Barnyard funk, old cheese, apples and lemons, just like it should be! Taste is intense wood, more barnyard funk, more fruits, very dry, nice carbonation. Damn. I love it!

January 23, 2015. On tap at Moeder lambic Fontainas.
Hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is funky, earthy, light woody and some citrus and faint egg notes. Taste is tart citrus, earthy and dry oaky notes with a herbal touch. Light bodied, a bit sticky carbonation

KansaiBeerLvrs (3343) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 16, 2015
Sample on tap at CBB in Osaka. I’m guessing they didn’t know the draft version is 4.8% as they listed it as the normal 6.4%. Geuze Tilquin is a lovely cloudy gold with a peppery, lightly musty plum & barrel aroma. Incredibly smooth with a soft mildly sour acidic flavor, very tasty and perfect on a mild sunny day. I want to drink this on a terrace in Belgium.
