3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at Nuetnigenough. Fair degree of carbonation, not much head. Curious retro label. Initially found the aroma sweet, although a second go unleashed some sour notes. The Tilquin gueuzes appear well blended, sweeter, with less aggressive sharpness or sourness than say a Cantillon. A nice winey fruitiness. Good.
