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).

Poured into a teku showing lightly filtered dry orange peel with a finger and half of clean white foam. The nose shows a lot of intense barnyard and bretty funk. The palate is well carbonated and light bodied. Moderate sparkling tartness with a very strong citric forward flavor followed by a slight zesty bitterness on the finish.

Lore (1765) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 24, 2016
hazy orange colour, moderate sized off-white head, which disappears fully and quite quickly; aroma of tart, lemony notes, tannins, barnyard, wheat, some vinegar and unripe grapefruit; taste is the same with some bitterness; really great gueuze

Gli odori la fanno da padrone: stantio, leggero ossidato, limone, pelle del salame, lumaca e tanto altro. Grande gueuze.

Belgianloner (12) - Manchester, Lancashire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 2014-2015 vintage in 37.5cl bottle. AROMA: Musty maybe even dank or dusty, tropical fruit, parmesan cheese. Extremely pleasant. APPEARANCE: Deep amber, translucent, Alive with carbonation. Such a lovely thing. Large white foamy head which after a while dissapates a lot but remains somewhat present along with some residual carbonation. TASTE: Magnificent, tropical fruits, sour, bubbly, oily, refreshing. Quenching. PALATE: Long lasting, acidic, quenching, moreish. OVERALL: A real triumph. I was lucky enough to meet Pierre Tilquin at IMBC and he was a very humble person who was just happy his beer was liked. This really is the real deal.

Rating #1487 - 12.03.2015 - Pregaming for Sour & Funk Fest. Bottle from Wine & Beyond Windemere (now HorizonKyle beat beerblast to the punch on this round, must have been a fluke, hahaha) Pours hazy golden with a bubbly white head. Aroma of apricot jelly, lemon juice, and Brett. Quite tart and juicy with a pronounced sourness - lingering acidity into the finish. Phenomenal.

Cloudy, pale pour with an energetic foam. Good sour character and surprisingly strong. Good dry finish.
