2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
750ml bottle shared by Finn during a local rating session. Shot followed by smoke when opened. Lasing layer of dimples. Cloudy golden body. Fresh, sour and cellar cold aroma, farmyard-impression. Sweet and sour taste of dried lemon and green apples. Acid and dry endnotes. Quite well bodied. Not only a palate cleanser, however, still not a favourite style in my book (Tårnrommet, Tromsø 23.04.2013).

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear straw yellow, no head. Bit of funk and lemon citrus and tart apple on the nose. Taste follows. Zippy acidity with a nice tartness and a funky ending. Finish is pretty short and very dry. Very good, preferred the Cantillon Gueze Bio just slightly.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is a deep rich peach colour. Aroma is strong funk - promising! Taste is rich bold funk and sour fruit pepperiness. Delicious. Palate brings the lasting sour. Not a terribly complex example of the style, but very very enjoyable with plenty of sour chops. Overall, one of my favourite guezes thus far.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml bottle (6,4%). A hazy medium to dark blonde beer, with a large, fizzy, mostly lasting, white head. The aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately yeasty (barnyard, horseblanket, cheese), with notes of straw, apple and lemon. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately to heavily acidic. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation, dry, long finish with light bitterness. Surely a new favorite among Lambics. Curious aroma of Parmesan cheese. Not extreme as other examples, and it dosen’t lack complexity. Quaffable and world class.

2011/12 bottle poured into a tulip snifter. pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head. smells tart, some hay/barnyard, some breadiness. Taste is very tart up front that is livened with lots of carbonation. Tastes of earth, hay, and some vinegar; pretty abrupt finish that is a gentle bitter.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2011 bottle. Pours a pale, orange-shaded gold color. Quite cloudy. Small white head, lots of little bubbles. Aroma has lots of earth, sour lemons and a pleasant mineral tone. Lots of musty fruit - apples, berries, grapes. Medium vinegar and oak. Taste is sour lemons upfront, then some fruity malt flavor and back to more sourness that follows through into a long-lasting finish. Fairly dry. Solid pucker. Nice tannic oak flavor. Mouthfeel is a light sparkle on top of a relatively full body for a lambic. This is an excellent beer, and it’s wonderful to have another traditional lambic brewer available in local stores. I hope to see more lambics available from Tilquin in the future.
