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).

Aroma is very tart and non-cleaned barnyard. Lemon and wooden notes hurdles together trying to outlive the massive dusty cloud that lingers above them. Lovely! Taste is sour, very much white grapes and complex earthy notes. Amongst all this earth, wind and fire, there’s a re-juvenating sourness that just carries all the complex notes to the end where a pleasant acidness takes over, leaving you with a smile on your face (with a slight tad of cringe thrown in for the sourness).

huineman (581) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 8, 2016
75 cl bottle at Irreale, Madrid. Pours hazy amber-golden with thick, good-lacing, off-white head. Sheer sour aromas of cider, green apple, fermenting yeast, bread dough and leather. Mouthfeel is fizzy, very dry and sour, nicely metallic. Very long yet subtle finish.

Zoret (308) - Badalona, SPAIN - AUG 3, 2016
D’ampolla al BBF-Lab Barcelona 2016. Cervesa color ambre clar una mica tèrbola. Aromes cítrics de llimona i també afruitats de poma i pera. També i trobo cereal, palla, estable i un punt acètic. Final àcid i sec. Bona!

Rask0lnikov (651) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 22, 2016
750ml bottle. Thank you, Veit! Golden yellow colour. Modest white head. Hints of vinegar, hints of citrusses, hints of horseblanket, leathery notes, hints of spices in the aroma. Very refreshing and complex. Hints of vinegar, citrusses at first. Lots of horseblanket in the middle. Leathery notes. Bitter, slightly spicy, white wine-like finish. Horseblanket in the aftertaste. Rather light bodied, medium carbonated, very well balanced, refreshing gueuze.

mariuspoenari (1420) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 23, 2016
37cl bottle at home. Hazy muddy orange with a thin white head. Smells like macerated grapes, unripe apricots, vinegar, barnyard funk. Moderately sour and bitter, much milder than the nose suggested, with a high carbonation and a bitter and sour aftertaste.

Ik was direct verkocht aan deze geuze. Echt een verrijking voor het landschap van de geuzes.
