Moose Out Front Should Have Told You

Beer #184 Oude Gueuze Tilquin à L'Ancienne / Gueuzerie Tilquin, Rebecq-Rognon, Belgium

Lost in the excitement of yesterday's uphill trail run was us blowing straight through the halfway mark on this beer and brewery adventure!!!  So many good beers down, so many still to go.  Thank you to those who read this with any regularity, extra special thanks to those who share this site with their friends, and super extra thanks to those who have given us beer as a gift.  We love you all deeply.

Tonight's beer came courtesy of a sour beer tasting at Whole Foods - a gueuze from Gueuzerie Tilquin.  For those who don't recall, gueuze is a blend of new (one year) and old (two or three) lambics together.  This one pours with a hazy straw color and bright white head.  There are delightful aromas of funk and green grass. The taste is a delicious sourness, with flavors of citrus and earthy oak with a light, crisp finish.  In all, an excellent offering, and I'm putting this one in the Top 25.  Find it, drink it!

So fresh and so clean

The brewery website was fairly not helpful, but from what I was able to cobble together from the interwebs, this gueuzerie opened in 2011, and is Belgium's first new lambic blendery (oh yeah, blendery) to open in the past 15 years.

Think to Think About Today:
Time to pack up the Wagon Queen Family Truckster - we're on an adventure to Walley World starting tomorrow.  Coming for you, Marty Moose!

"He owes us, right?
