Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, horseblanket, wheat, and lemons. The flavor is acidic with notes of wood, brettanomyces, malt, wheat, lemons, and horseblanket, leading to a tart finish. Thanks joergen for sharing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of joergen. Pours a cloudy opaque golden with a tiny off-white head. Tart and heavy dirty barnyard in the nose. Medium body, a little initial fruitiness but then dry and sulphurous barnyard - lots of fart here. A very decent, straight and authentic Gueuze. 141111

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Vienna Whole Foods. Pours a slightly hazy orange-yellow with a thin white head. Woody, funky aroma with hoppy herbal notes as well as citrus peel. Light sweetness when it first hits the tongue. Very tart and sour, but not acetic. Dry citrus peel finish. Very citrusy and lemony. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 ml bottle bought @ Systembolaget and consumed on November 12. Pours hazy orange with a white head that dissipates while leaving no trace on the glass. Smell is sour and complex with hay, leather, grapefruit, grass and slight mineral/metallic hints. Taste is dry and sour and full-bodied with hay, leather, lemon, grapefruit and funk. Finish is dry and slightly sour with a barnyard feel to it. Very good and quite nice to see a new brand of oude gueuze!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2012 multiple bottles. 2010-2011 batch. perfect appearance for geuze - tall, frothy, billowy white head on top of a turbid, effervescent and lightly cloudy gold body. strong musty esters and acids in the nose, its richness and depth is surprisingly similar to some of the best cantillon and girardin batches of late: earthy, sulfuric, musty and minerallic / gravel-like rustic yeast and acids with honey-tinged biscuit / cracker malt and dry, grassy hops. intensely satisfying acid profile with medium-heavy oak barrel character. lightly buttery at times, which tends to play well with the wheat and biscuit malt character. highly acidic and musty, intensely quenching and all around an amazing batch of geuze. side-by-side, a recent cantillon batch was blown out of the water by this tilquin vintage.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Disig gul vätska med ett litet skum. En riktigt torr Geuze med mycket ektoner och rejäl syra. Kanske någon blommig ton, mycket grape, och den där omisskännliga geuzekaraktären. Lång stram lätt besk eftersmak. Rätt på alla punkter, hästfilten sitter som en smäck.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle 375... medium gold, once inch white cap, light lace... nice aroma that reminds me of the draft version, musky, spider webs, tons of straw, medium sourness... the taste is really smooth, medium sourness that lends to great drinkability, very farmy, wish it had a touch of sweetness then it would be crushable... indistinguishable from the draft for the most part
