I find the plums give this beer a strange combination of funky and tart that doesn't work for me. Not my favorite offering from Tilquin.

2013-2014 Vintage

A: 4.5 The color is a hazy, yet very pretty ruby grapefruit with a one-inch white head. Not much retention and not as carbonated as expected.

S: 4.25 Funky right up front with lots of hay and oak. After the initial funk, the lemon and pepper aromas are very similar to their gueuze. The fruit is pretty mild and seems more like a compliment to the funk rather than the main event. However, there is a subtle medicinal quality unique to this beer (and other fruited sours) that’s absent in the gueuze.

T: 4.5 Like the nose, funk, lemon, pepper, and oak dominate. The fruit comes in a bit more than the nose but doesn’t taste like strongly like plum. Rather, the plum brings a very light berry flavor that goes very well with the gueuze-like qualities of the base beer. The balance of this beer is very nice as the initial sourness is transitioned smoothly into a mild sweetness on the finish.

M: 4.25 The body on this beer is excellent and there’s a nice dry finish, but overall, it really feels undercarbonated. I thought this was going to be a gusher and was expecting a lively beer, but it could really use a bit more.

O: 4.5 I didn’t really know what to expect with this beer and was pleasantly surprised with it. I thought this might be like a kriek a more plummy flavor, but it’s very different. The flavors and aromas I love in their gueuze are present here with subtle fruity flavors. It’s rare to have a unique beer that this well-balanced.
