3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375 l bottle from ’Firma Bier’, best before November 2024 (I assume bottled in November 2014). Clear, golden yellow with a massive, fluffy, rather quickly diminishing, white head. Sourish-fruity, moderately funky, peppery aroma of leather, lemon, rhubarb, apples, oak and dusty cellar. Fruity, firmly but not overly sour, moderately funky and slightly peppery taste of lemon, rhubarb, leather, oak and apples, followed by a medium long, firmly tart, peppery-dry finish. Thin to medium body, firmly astringent and fizzy mouthfeel, very lively carbonation. The loud plop of the cork already promised a very lively Gueuze which it is. It is rather quaffable due to its comparably moderate acidity, but at the same time complex and elegant, although maybe not as round as it could be. I like it a lot though!

Tilquin Oude Geuze Tilquin A L’Ancienne 2014 6.4%
Pouring a light honey gold with a sense head of foam that lasts for ages.
This Geuze from an underrated and quite new blenderie that is growing in popularity has an intensely funky aroma: earthy with a lightly peppery lemon tartness.
It’s got an insanely soft rounded mouthfeel very nice.
The taste is acidic, cork, light must/funk, lemon drops, a bit salty. Really interesting stuff that I think would go great with a salad or seafood.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
37,5 cl bottle. The labelling is very classy. Nice pop at the opening! Golden hazy pour with quite a thick head but like any gueuze, short lasting. Aroma is funky and zesty lemons, apples, light vinegar. There is a massive gunflint mineral aroma that I have not yet found on any other gueuze (it is not as present in Boon, Cantillon, Lindemans, 3 Fonteinen lambics which are used to make this). It is rather sweet for a gueuze, very round and balanced. Dry and sour finish, but very harmonic. The palate is very full with lots of very thin bubbles. Overall it is highly drinkable and incredibly tasty! I only leave one point just in case I find any beer better than this!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a teku showing lightly filtered dry orange peel with a finger and half of clean white foam.
The nose shows a lot of intense barnyard and bretty funk.
The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Moderate sparkling tartness with a very strong citric forward flavor followed by a slight zesty bitterness on the finish.
