Hazy dark reddish-cooper without much of a head at all, this one's musty, sharp and skunky. The blackberry is faint and there's a little milky cheese in this crisp, dry lambic.

This one is more acidic and tart than others by tilquin, but yet again it is well made and delicious. Big blackberry leads the smell and taste, with supporting lemon, basement musk, raspberry, funky yeast, pepper, grape, red wine, and hay. Thought the cabonation really helped the smell where it slightly cut into the taste. Little thin for style. Very complex in the finish, really enjoyable, would be perfect for a late springtime picnic

A - Pours a Pinon Noir type appearance with no head
S - Smell is classic horse blanket and yeast
T - Is classic Lambic tartness with not much of the fruit in the after taste
M- Not enough carbonation here which detracts from the overall experience
O - Was disappointed with the carbonation in this beer which detracted away from the overall experience in the way that a Cantillon does not.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

375 ml bottle with expiration date of 2028, so things are looking good.

L: Clear red-plum color beer with no retention or lacing.

S: Sour berries and yeastiness, just like the doctor ordered.

T: Follows nose. Quite tart, but not overpowering sourness and funkiness is held in check as well.

F: Light bodied, moderately carbonated. Construction and balance are very good. Drinks well, nice and crisp.

O: Another nice offering from overseas.

This was a 2015-2016 vintage that popped when the cork came out so it was carbonated. Small head but it was definitely better than the 2016-2017. Aroma was indicative of impending sourness, some lambic funk. Flavor was sour fruit, very tart, surprising. It was good but I was not expecting that much sourness from a Tilquin.

One of my least favorite beers from Tilquin. Still a very good beer but was hoping for something a little bit more special. That being said has a nice mild funky wet undertown and the blackberries are not overpowering so a well balanced beer.

375ml corked and caged bottle into Cantillon stemware.

Great color... good head retention too. Nose is funky wet wood, cobwebs, lemon and tart fruit. Beer opens cheese, foam, wet wood, juicy blackberry and lemon rind. Some cobweb, plastic and more tart blackberries in the middle with a zesty, puckering finish. A little less fruity and a little more tart than I want. Nice funk though. Body is light with moderate to low carbonation. Prickly and dry in the mouth and goes down sparkling, puckering and dry. Messy finish with a lingering, tart finish.

Solid overall but this is more tart than I like. The blackberry presence is a bit muted.

Possibly the prettiest beer I’ve ever seen.

Very whine-y

Pleasantly tart with a sour finish and remarkably smooth beginning

Could use more blackberry but a very well done Belgian fruit lambic.

Poured from 12.7oz bottle (green) into glass. Label has best by date as '04/02/2028'.
Cloudy, dark crimson colored body. Quick fizzy head quickly disappears. No lacing.
Fruit and funk (leather and horse blanket) in the aroma.
Taste is led by the tart berry (difficult to identify as blackberries) and accompanied by acidic lemon and horse blanket, leather funk. Rather dry but vinous after taste.
Medium mouth feel, but low carbonation.
Beautiful colored body, and funk added aroma and taste. The berry addition is not enough sweet to counter the lemon sour. A beer that expresses no hops nor malts, but has an interesting taste. Such is the wide range of "beer".
