Reviewed 12/31/2012. Thanks to Momar42 for all three gueuzes (and the kriek surprise afterwards!) This was part of the gueuze showdown, pitting Tilquin’s gueuze against the juggernaut duo known as Cantillon Gueuze and Drie Fonteinen Oude Geuze. Part of a 750mL bottle poured into a Cantillon tulip. Notes from last night’s Skins/Cowboys game. A: Pours a cloudy dark amber color. The head is a one finger white shade, with the best texture and retention of the three. S: Tons of tartness, a lesser white wine-esque fruitiness, and some buried earthy funk. The most seemingly sour of the three. T: First thing that comes through initially is the combination of pear/apple esters and white wine tartness. The tart sourness breaks through more aggressively through the midtaste, while the finish is mild brett funk. Out of the three, this was the most sour, the least earthy - and the least subtle. Certainly a nice beer, however. M: Super dry and puckering. Lots of carbonation, too. It lacks the delicate touch of the Cantiloon/3F gueuzes, though it’s softer than, say, a run of the mill Flemish red. O: It’s a nice sour ale. I wouldn’t call it beginner friendly at all, though, due to the tartness. I would point fans of Flanders sours to this one, however. Shame it had compete against the two titans of the style - even though it came in third in the gueuze showdown, I reckon it would be superior to any other gueuze on the market (not from Cantiloon or 3F, that is).

Mesjasz (245) - Lodz, POLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Bottle. Little hazy orange color, strong white head. Aroma is acidic, barnyard, sour apple, lemon, grapes and wine. Taste is medium to stron sour, deep and dry with light bitterness and tartness at finish. Flavor is funky, sour fruits, like young apples, grape skin, lemon. Also light herb notes at finish. Very tasty gueuze.

Wischylini (172) - Grimstad, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
Half of the bottle’s contents gushed out like an orange fountain that smelled like feet and cheese as I opened it. The remaining beer pour a hazy orange, with a small white head. The aromas are musty, barnyard, straw and hay, acetic acid and generally funky. The taste is dry and somewhat bitter. The mouthfeel is light, crisp and fizzy.

King_Alex_II (624) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Dark golden ’typical’ gueuze color with fast decaying foam. Funky cheese feet gueuze smell. Little carbonation, dry smooth, yet furry layer in the mouth feeling. Moderately sourish. Super dry aftertaste. A calm gueuze. I personally prefer the little fresher and more alive gueuzes, but this one is still quite awesome.

Et là, c’est le drame, voilà que je me mets à apprécier les gueuzes ! Acidité nette et précise, très rafraîchissant ... ( ça change du pétrole :) )

Erzengel (5494) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUL 5, 2015
*37,5cl with 6.0%. Best before 21/01/2021. The beer starts intense sourish. The sourness is smooth with a great horseblanket. Sourish-fresh aftertaste, more our than mild. Fresh and complex. Great!

nogva (55) - NORWAY - JUN 17, 2015
375ml bottle from 2013/2014. Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin but creamy off-white head. Aroma of citrus, barnyard and some cherry. Medium body, slick feel, fizzy carbonation. Taste is very tart with green apples, sour candy, grass and oranges. Dry finish with more of the grassy notes.
