Perhaps the most anticipated release of any beer we’ve ever introduced stateside – the Gueuze Tilquin.
As lovers of traditional Belgian lambic know, even in this modern age of breweries popping up at the rate of >1 every day, it is not every day that a new Gueuze is released.
It was 15 years ago to be exact - when De Cam opened it’s doors – that the world last saw a new gueuze hit the scene. Three years in the making, Gueuzerie Tilquin is the brainchild of master blender/founder Pierre Tilquin, a young brewer who has quite a resume.
Years ago he worked for Cantillon and later apprenticed under the incomparable Armand de Belder of Drie Fonteinen. After finally raising enough capital to start his own blendery, Gueuzerie Tilquin was founded.
The wort for the beer is derived from 4 separate sources – Lindeman’s, Girardin, Boon, and…Cantillon – the only blender in the world with that distinction. The final result is out-of-this-world – complex yet supremely drinkable; perhaps the softest gueuze that exists on the market today.
Add to it a less complex, almost session-like counterpart in the draft version, and you have one of the most auspicious debuts of a new brewery in recent memory.
And now with rumors swirling about the immanent release of the first fruit lambics from Tilquin, it seems like the hype surrounding this talented young blender is destined to linger for a good deal longer…
