The Gueuze Tilquin is a spontaneous fermentation beer obtained from blending one, two and three year old lambics. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, it is re-fermented in the bottle for a minimum of six months. The lambics used were fermented and matured in oak barrels at the blendery. They are made from worts brewed by Boon, Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon.
The taste is tart and dry but has a certain roundness that makes this Gueuze à l’ancienne particularly accessible to all beer drinkers.
The sweet complexity is more pleasing to non-sour beer drinkers. Coupled with a touch of dry bitterness (from the tannic youth of the Oak Barrels) and a pleasant lemon-y aroma, we find this Gueuze darned near perfect; 6.% abv.
