At 6:08 p.m., I tweeted that there was only a cocktail party standing between me and vacation. Now I realize this post is also standing between me and vacation. I'm tempted to write something like, "Mmm. Beer. Good. Sour. Mmm."
Tilquin Gueuze is an exceptional example of a Gueuze. It's brewed at the Gueuzerie Tilquin in Belgium. It ended up at our house thanks to the "Sour Power" event at Whole Foods this weekend.
It poured a slightly hazy shade of amber, very little head. It smells sour and doughy with just a hint of malt sweetness. The flavor is potently sour...like lip puckering sour. Lots of tingly tongue sensations and a bit of mineral in the finish. Overall it is fantastic!
