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. JulieNK (4) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - APR 12, 2013 does not count
375ml bottle from 2011/2012. Very carbonated. Pours hazy golden orange with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma sour, horse, lemon. Taste tart and bitter at the back of the throat. Lingers for a while. Very nice!

Beautiful lemon and oak aroma. Puffy and light in texture. Like an awesome apple cider vinegar in a way.

0.375l corked bottle. Shiuld be perfect for a hot lazy Sunday afternoon watching the Wimbledon final huh? It pours a great looking glowing honey-orange colored body with a small light bubbly white head. The aroma is fruity and dry-sour. It can in some way remind me a bit of manure that has been added paint thinner - only in a good way. Also it’s tones of leafs and sour lemons. It smells really nice indeed. The taste is sour with not ripe lemons, it’s fruity with gooseberries and white currants. Has a nice oily texture with a average+ carbonation level. Lot’s of grapy citrus all the way and there is also some green apples and sour nectarines going on here. So refreshing! 08.07.2012 poisoneddwarf (2687) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - APR 7, 2013
12.7 oz corked and caged green bottle; 2011 vintage. Pours hazy gold with a medium off-white head with decent retention. Aroma is barnyard funky, vinegar, citrus powder drink, minerally. Taste is mouth-puckering sour, acidic, a bit savory with a dry finish. Pretty awesome, although it doesn’t set itself apart from a lot of other quality gueuze’s out there. illidurit (2356) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 7, 2013
Pours an enchanting apricot hue with a vague blush, with a bubbling white head. Lovely aroma, I mean just really pleasant. Marmalade and rose petals, citrus zest. Meyer lemon sweet/sour balance, dry and acidic. Really nice beer. lotsalaughs (176) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 7, 2013
citrus, dough, barnyard, cheese, earthy, woody, golden, amber, hazy, minimal head, white foam, light sweetness, lightly bitter, heavily sour, light body, slick feel, average carbonation, long finish
Pours is golden amber with medium high white foam. Aroma: in a word, funky. Acidic dryness hits the nose along with citrus barnyard, earthy/woody (moldy cheese?) and bread dough. Taste is sharply sour with a hint of sweetness (reminds of cider vinegar marinade). Bitterness is different as well - hard to describe, but old wood flavour comes to mind. Thin bodied with an average carbonation. Slightly slick mouthfeel and dry dusty finish that lingers. Sample from 750ml bottle for tasting. Swaroga (2224) - Warszawa, POLAND - APR 7, 2013
375ml bottle. Golden with small, white head. I notice lively carbonation. Nose : citrus, cheese, hay, vinaigrette, apple, nuts. Herbal notes as well. Sip : dry citrus and clove bite. Reveals some unusual vanilla and tabac flavours. It lasts a good while with dry and fruity aftertaste. Surprising.
