4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Corked bottle. Pours a brilliantly clear pale gold with a thin white head and a steady stream of fine bubbles. Aroma is mild barnyard funk, light citrus, a mellow maltiness, a woodsy bitterness. Flavor is moderately sour and barnyard funky, lemon, lemongrass, mild woodiness, restrained fruitiness, low sweetness. Finishes dry. Incredibly refreshing. Light mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Could easily chug it; have to remind myself to sip it slowly to get all the complexity. One of my favorite gueuzes/sours.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Una gueuze che è quasi poesia, con un’acidità morbida e intrigante che avvolge il palato, arricchita da note vinoso-acetiche, che sfumano in uno sfondo citrico e legnoso. Assolutamente stupenda!!

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hazy light copper with a thick bubbly white head. Aroma is barnyard, apples, and a bit woody. Tastes like bitter apple cider and flower peddles. Strong sour mouthfeel, quite bubbly, with a lingering dry bitter finish. First Sour I’ve had, so a little bit shocking. Not sure what I think, but every sip is growing on me.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear golden color with a think moussy white head that has great retention. Aroma is sour, horse blanket, barnyard, wheat, cotrus(green apple, grapefruit) and some light oak. Taste is lots of tannin, moderate sour character with barnyard, wheat, horse blanket and some lightly well balanced sweet fruity flavors. Also some grapefruit and oak is present. Medium light body and great balance make the high sourness and puckering so delightful.

Flaske 0,75l fra Vinmonopolet, Bestillingsutvalget. Delt med flere under seanse på Tårnrommet 23 Apr 13. Åpner med et lite puff og litt røyk. Lys gylden. Høyt luftig, skinnende hvitt skum. Litt uklar. Spredte partikler. Litt lacing. Syrlig fruktaroma. Holder seg syrlig. Litt uvariert.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium white head. Slightly hazy orange body with carbonation.
Funky fruity barnyard aroma with wooden waxy notes. Sweet-acidic
lemony barnyard taste with funky wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Mild
mouthfeel. Dry vinegary wooden metallic aftertaste with lemony
funky notes. Interesting, and much cleaner than other Tilquin
beers I’ve had. Quite nice, and surprisingly sweet
initially. (0.75l bottle from wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

I’ve had this a few times over the years, either in 375 or 750ml bottles, and no matter what, it’s just fucking excellent. Everything a gueze should be. Nice and grass filled, puckery, barnyard funked the fuck out, and lingering for minutes and minutes until you have to make yourself take another sip (because you want to savor it forever). It’s worth the asking price. Drink it warmer.

Usual cork and caged 37.5 cl bottle: BBD 12 Apr 2021. Shared between four at the first ever Shrewsbury bottle share on 27th Jan 2014.
I don’t drink cider and I certainly don’t drink old dry cider: it reminded me of that.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma di cantina e pelle sullo sfondo con profumo citrico, aroma di prugne e vino bianco.
Leggermente velata con colore abrato verso l’arancione.
il gusto è acido che pulisce e fa salivare, presenza di minerali che danno un sapore di minerale e umami, umami,

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a bottle to a tulip. Light copper slightly opaque pour with fizzy white head and nice lacing with champagne bubbles climbing the glass. Barnyard funk, over ripe fruit and acidity. Complex flavor profile, lemon, sour cherry and raspberry... My taste buds are dancing! First sample of this style for me, I'll be back...

Murky sandy golden, fusty ringed head. Musty, crusty lambicyness. Really smooth, lightly sweety juicy jolly rancher. Refreshing and sour. Light tangy dark dried fruit. Frothy light enough mouthfeel forward and light tang cloy on finish. Yessssssss.
Bottle, February Tasting, Cheers BenH
