375 ml bottle pours cloudy orange with lots of carbonation and a thick, although quickly diminished white head. Aromas of lemons, slight skunk, and some pepper. Taste is classic gauze, tart, barnyard, sour apple, lemon, ans lactic. Body is light and finish is short, dry, and clean. Very tasty.

Golden amber pour hazy thin layer of white head .... aroma is sweet and strong with a sugary side but mostly brett and funky barnyard ...... taste is dry and sour brett with a sweet sugary side and then a funky barnyard earthy flavor .... tart lemony with a dry tart finish ... a little too sweet not quite as tart/sour but its still solid and a nice drinking gueuze

ARMed (604) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 22, 2011
This beer was average at best. My least likeness for this beer was the appearance. It had none. No head and no lacing. Watery, thin, minimal carbonation and poor overall appearance. My beer was likely contaminated as it was only brewed in 2011 qith a good until 2021. The flavor was tart and acidic with sourness abound. Not a beer I would likely try again.

Bottle @ The BeerMongers... Poured hazy golden orange with a white head that retained nicely. Substantial bretty nose with funk and horseblanket. Satisfyingly dry with light fruits, tart yeast, citrus, musky funk, and little bit of a burning acidity towards the finish.

2010/2011 - REF A 1011 cork - 375mL A - Hazy golden with finger of white head, leaves a ring with spotty lacing. S - green apples, grass/hay, with lemon. T - Taste is a nice balance of barnyard brett and lemon rind. Nothing too complex, similar to a Cuvee Rene at a few years. M/D - prickly and dry, wears on the palate a little more than it should. A pretty solid gueuze blending from the new guy in Belgium, which can probably only get better, I sampled this next to a Girardin that was bottled within 6 months of the Tilquin, and the Girardin was the clear winner. I think it would be nice to do a side by side with all 4 of the lambics he uses to really get a feel.

VsXsV (2303) - Linköping, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2011
UPDATED: APR 14, 2013 375 ml bottle from Etre Gourmet. Poured into 3F tumbler. Hazy, amber/orange liquid with medium light off-white head. Funky, sour aroma of lemons, apples, barnyard, wheat, wood, leather, earthy notes and nice brett. Taste is medium tart, medium to high sour and light sweet. Notes of apples, brett and wheat. Nice and fruity. Very balanced, drinkable and refreshing. Medium bodied with high, but soft carbonation and dry mouthfeel. Long, sour finish. Very well balanced and drinkable Gueuze. Not bad for a gueuzerie this young!

Nickls (1857) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle. Bubbly and fizzy white head that leaves a spotty white time with limited lacing; very hazy vibrant bright orange. Leather, funk, slight cheese, musk and hay in the aroma. Very tart and sour up-front, with less leather and more sour hay, grass, and funk in the flavor. Much more sour in the finish rather than funky, and hay-like is the overriding finishing note. Lighter body with nice tight bubbly carbonation. Tasty, but not quite as stunning as the best blenders.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2011 Outstanding gueuze with smooth sour flavours, typical aroma and tiny bubbles texture.

mixmasterob (883) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - OCT 14, 2011
Light hazy orange pour with a small fizzy white head. Aroma was light lemon, vinegar and a slight funkiness. Flavors were incredibly dry with notes of lemon, vinegary, and a lingering tartness. Mouthfeel was fizzy and dry. Actually pretty tasty and drinkable.
