Pours a cloudy orange-straw color. Larger than normal head on a gueuze. Dies down pretty quickly and leaves a little bit of lacing. Fruity aroma, peppery, leather, and a bit of sourness. No real funk, just a slight bit of earthiness. Big sour taste right up front. Very tart and a very sour mouthfeel. Very good beer for this guy’s first time out. Can’t wait to see how they age, and what he’ll have in store for us next.

750 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. BBE 11/12/2020.
Pours a hazy, yellowish copper colour with a small white head on the edges. Aroma of sour, tart apples, some vinegar and fresh lemons. Flavour of sour apples, clove, lemon, lime and oak. Medium bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a lovely sour, dry, tart, citrusy finish with a fair amount of acidity. Lively carbonation. Pleasant gueuze which will probably be even better after a few years.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2011 75 cl bottle @ Tuulensuu, BBE 11/12/2020
Started coming spontaneously out of the bottle in form of a foam. Sour and fruity aroma with some fruity peachness. Taste is sour with a hint of lactacic acid like in the Tilquin Lambic Blend. An average gueuze.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Rating #5100. Marked as best before 11/12/2020. Pours with a hazy golden body with a small white head that fades to a ring and lingers around the side of the glass. Aromas are huge, very funky (a complex and deep funk), white wine, brett, oak. Some horseblanket, honey, esters and florals. Very complex. Flavors are again, complex. Funk, musty, dried stone fruits, lively, bright. Rich wood notes, horseblanket, honeysuckle with balancing tannins. White wine vinous notes. Lively bubbles with decent acidity, bright, and dry. A very nice new Gueuze from a new blender. Leans a bit to the funk side of things over the sharper acidity of a Cantillon or 3Font. A bit like 1882, but clearly its own. Very nice!

Short-lived, just off-white head over dullish orange-ochre, well-carbonated gueuze. Citrussy, farmyard odour, flowery as dried flowers or helicrysum; generally quite Cantillon-like, sour apples, touch of sulphur. Very citrussy taste again, lemony; lipsmacking sour flavour. Again quite Cantillon-character, but it lacks a bit of depth, seemingly falling a bit dead. Sandcookies retronasal, before the citrussy acidity takes over the aftertaste. Farmyard, flowery touches and soldatenkoeken. Very refreshing, light, totally overattenuated, quite dry. A bit more ripening, a bit more applied blending, and this becomes a top-gueuze. I’m sure it will, but I would diminish the amount of Cantillon lambic a bit, and use more oude lambik.

bouteille 37.5cl bouchonnée dans le verre Tilquin.. Il est rare d’assister à la naissance d’une nouvelle gueuzerie, encore plus rare quand cette dernière est à côté de chez soi. C’est donc heureux que j’ouvris cette bouteille. La couleur est dorée laissant s’échapper un tourbillon de bulles qui viennent percer la surface d’un col blanc soyeux. Au nez, je retrouve là toute la complexité d’une gueuze artisanale, offrant ici un côté de moisi/renfermé avec une touche fruitée mais aussi une signature qui rappelle la Cantillon pour tout ceux qui en on déjà bu ou se sont déjà promenés à Cantillon. En bouche, on retrouve ce palais de chêne donnant un fini boisé avec une certaine acidité allant vers différentes agrumes. Là aussi j’identifie encore Cantillon pour une bière qui donne un palais sec et laisse une effervescence qui vient chatouiller le palais. Une très bonne gueuze, et qui demande à être revisitée dans le futur voire aussi à ouvrir une bouteille dans qcq années pour voir comment cette dernière aura évoluer.

375mL thanks to Travlr. The pour is a hazy, glowing light orange. A thick, dense, off-white head erupts with excellent retention for gueuze. Nose is obviously Cantillon house funk (part of this blend) with sharp grapefruit and lemon peel, peach fruit leather, sweet ruby red grapefruit fleshy pulp. Very fresh, tropical, awesome nose. Reminds me of Girardin and Cantillon blended. Taste is quenching grapefruit, fresh and pulpy grapefruit juice, bitter citrus. Very zippy and fresh with loads of tropical notes and peach. Really superb. Hilariously on target for a first batch. A new geuze blender with some mad talent.

02/06/2011 37.5cl bottle @ Klaas’ place - BB: 22/12/2020 (2011-248) Thanks to John for sharing the bottle!

Pretty cloudy light orange beer, practically no head. Aroma: lemons and lime, typical bretta nose, basement. MF: little carbon, medium body. Taste: pretty sour start, lemony and bretts, pretty surprisingly bitter touch also. Aftertaste: sour, orange peel and zest bitterness. Not bad. Maybe a bit young still. Time will tell.

Bottle 750ml. @ Gueuzerie Tilquin, Chaussèe Maieur Habils 110, Rebecq-Rognon, Belgium.

[ As my rating # 20000 on ratebeer ]. Light unclear medium orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to light heavy barnyard, leather, wood, citrus - grapefruit, tart. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and moderate acidic with a long duration, dry. IMO a bit young so it will deff. be nice to follow Pierre the next years and see how the beers will improve. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20110528]
