Shared by Armin. Pours cloudy pale gold with a tight soapy head that lasts. Aroma is funk sour grape peel and lemon. Taste is more the same with some leather oak wood. Palate is medium and drying.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2015 Pour out of 750 mL bottle is hazy yellow with white head, aroma brought notes of big cheese, funk, nice vanilla, basement, barnyard notes, some lemony lactic notes as well. Taste is a nice mix of funky cheese, lemon lactic notes, touch of funky horseblanket and basement, finishing fairly bitter and dry, sour notes throughout. Nicely done, with some age would be awesome.

mcberko (11204) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2015 375mL bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of horse blanket, light vinegar, some light funk, and mild acidity. Flavour of medium sour notes, tons of horse blanket and funk, and some oak barrels. Finishes on some lemony, tangy notes. Low carbonation for a gueuze, which allows the complexity to properly exhibit itself. Unlike both Cantillon and 3 Fonteinen’s regular gueuzes, this one is much tangier and less funky. Excellent, unique gueuze.

Update: newer versions of this seem funkier and less citrus / tangy, and even more complex. Fantastic stuff. Uprating this from 4.1 to 4.3.

(Une belle bouteille de 75 cl, à consommer de préférence avant le 22 janvier 2021) Je suis à verser le premier verre de ce liquide à la robe dorée/orangée et je m’attarde un instant au texte de l’étiquette. On peut y lire : «La Gueuze Tilquin à l’ancienne est issue de l’assemblage de lambics de 1, 2 er 3 ans mûris en fûts de chêne. Non filtrée et non pasteurisée, elle est refermentée en bouteille. Les lambics employés ont été brassés par les brasseries Boon, Lindemans, Girardin et Cantillon.» Prometteur! Donc, sur cette robe, une tête qui est a priori énorme et qui semble bien vouloir résister un instant. Un regard qui permet aussi de constater le fort déplacement des bulles. Une belle et bonne effervescence, quoi. Au nez, les parfums sont bien cohésifs sans être expansifs : il y a une légère poussière et certainement un boisé avec des effluves de cuir et des citrons qui s’accordent sur le même pas et qui ne tombent jamais dans l’excès. Au niveau des saveurs, l’assemblage des lambics est tout de même gentil pour mes papilles. Il y a des notes fruitées surettes et acides. Il y a des microbes et un goût de bois touché par les aléas de l’humidité. Il y a des notes qui ne sont jamais trop intenses et jamais vinaigrées. En bouche, c’est un liquide qui étonne avec un corps de moyenne densité. Il y a un apport de bulles qui est juste. La texture est légèrement huileuse. J’apprécie cet état de fait. En finale, une tempête asséchante, toute en équilibre avec une complexité certaine. Facile à boire. Peut-être un peu trop!

Bottle. Pours a mostly clear dark gold body with a one finger fizzy white head that retained as a thin covering. The nose is pretty nice, funky as all get out with some nice lemon rind and woody notes. Very much smells like an authentic Gueuze, it’s great to have a new and available Gueuze on the market. The flavor is very dry and nicely tart with the perfect amount of tartness and zero acetic acid. Very drinkable and refreshing. Bone dry on the finish with perfect fizzy carbonation. A very good Gueuze, going to have to stock up with more of these.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2012 Bottle from Knightly. Best by 2/15/2021. Yup, I’m inside that window. Amber-gold, thin lasting off-white head on top. This has that musty basement smell that’s a good thing in these lambics. Some bandaid, lemon, and citric acid too. Sharp sour fruit flavor of grapefruit, lemon, and perhaps lime, but the sourness isn’t over the top or anything. Actually, it’s quite drinkable and refreshing. Plenty of straw and basemunt funk. Very dry, long-lasting finish. This is excellent stuff. The more I drink it the more I am liking it.

ChainGangGuy (4658) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 26, 2012
350ml bottle - $9.49 at Hop City in Atlanta, Georgia. Best before: 15/02/2021.

Appearance: Pours out a lightly hazed, dark golden body with a medium-sized, white head.

Smell: Soured citrus juice, a slight rustic quality, stray oak shavings, rubbed leather, and a fair amount of drool-inducing lactic acid entering the nostrils.

Taste: A refreshing wash of Matt Simpson’s Gas Line Lemonade with a fruity underpinning, an additional distant hint of lime rind, traces of antique pressed flowers, a dusty, leathery funkiness, and oaken planks. Moderately acidic but not enough to knock your teeth out, just enough, really. Dry, soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Lightly carbonated.

Overall: Politely discreet, refreshing, and just a good gueze overall.

Bottle corked. Poured clear golden color with an large frothy white head that was lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour yeasty wood aroma. Medium body with a dry texture with lively carbonation. Medium sour citrus flavor with a medium sour finish of moderated duration. This is a standout for style beer.

75cl bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a big white head. Medium kasting foam. Aroma is sour and funk with strong citrus notes. Hay, barnyard and dust as well. In the taste you get horse blanket, hay, lemon zest and juice, taleggio cheese and dust. Quite funky and sour with a nice sweetish touch. Medium to thin body with lively carbonation. Extremely balanced and tasty. Quite complex bouquet as well. Top notch for sure.
