Any of you ponces ever had it:
Tastes like thrush. Unbelievably rank.
In Belgium, obv.
Didn't like it really. First sip is horrendous, then it gets better.
you have the palate of a child.
Paid £6 once for a HALF of Gueuze Tilquin. Tasted like really bad scrumpy, and made my mouth feel all furry. By the end I sort of liked it, but it's not exactly something I want to keep in the fridge for regular consumption.
it's more acceptable. Still unacceptable though.
not too fussed on whether or not I have it now
tastes like boozy actimel. weirdly i quite like it. not enough to ever pay £4.50 for a bottle of it again though obvs
The waiter did warn me beforehand. Managed half of it. Interesting but not for me.
but not enough to regularly pay for it
tastes like cider sometimes, which is fun
Once your palette matures they get good.
Maybe start on a geuze or a light sour (Wild Beer Sourdough maybe) then move onto the aged lambics
and drink a nice wine or whiskey instead.
it's 1 pint only, because after that your mouth starts to invert, but it's great.
