Draft at Tilquin English Beerfestival. Nice complex geuze, but we had the Tilquin Special Blend earlier and that is better.

tectactoe (3099) - Michigan, USA - APR 29, 2015
Bottle: 2011 vintage. Cloudy golden-orange & amber body with a crackling white head. Aroma is fucken funky as hell. Sweat socks, old jock strap, musty barnyard, dirty horse. Holy shit. Some mild undertones of leather, lemon zest, wood, mineral water, & under-ripe stone fruit. Flavor is tart, puckering, & moderately acidic. Lemon, white grape, stone fruit. Again, tons of funk coming through. Leather, moldy cork, sweaty feet, post-rainstorm barnyard stall kind of shit. Dry finish, super-clean & hammers away at your gum line with some biting acidity. Really delicious stuff.

Saeglopur (959) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 29, 2015
750 ml bottle #6674, shared by Cuso at RB Tasting Vienna March Edition. Thanks!
Bright orange body, with a big, frothy, white head.
Sour, tart and dry aroma of funk, sour fruits, earth, citrus.
Taste follows this pretty much, with some more subtle sweetness.
Quite light, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes sour, tart, dry.

Nice one. Straight, sour-dry, with the typical Lambic aromas in a great balance. I’m not a huge fan of the Gueuze style and this won’t change my mind, but still enjoyable.
