3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Nuetnigenough. Fair degree of carbonation, not much head. Curious retro label. Initially found the aroma sweet, although a second go unleashed some sour notes. The Tilquin gueuzes appear well blended, sweeter, with less aggressive sharpness or sourness than say a Cantillon. A nice winey fruitiness. Good.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Moderate grain for the malt, dried flowers and grass for the hops, musty basement for the yeast, with hints of white grape, green wood and mixed berries. Head is average to large, fizzy/frothy. white with no lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is hazy medium amber with some small pieces in it. Flavor starts heavily acidic, acetic and sour, then finishes harshly acidic, moderately to heavily bitter and acidic. Palate is medium, dry, with a lively carbonation and a moderately astringent finish and leaves a tingle in the back of your mouth. By the smell and taste of it I can tell it’s a Gueuze lover’s dream, but this just aint my style.
