A: The beer is slightly hazy light amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with just a narrow collar of white bubbles around the edge fo the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of barnyard funk are present in the nose along with hints of blackberries.
T: The taste follows the smell and is somewhat funky along with notes of blackberries.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked the contrast of this beer as it smelled like a gueuze but tasted like a lambic.

musty grape skin, white grape, oak, grass, hay, funk, spicy peppery note, barnyard - dare i say horse blanket lol?, seedy blackberries, raspberries, slightly leafy, lactic quality, bright acidity invoking lemon, orange and grapefruit peel, moderate herbaceous quality. there is a crisp and prickly slightly effervescent carbonation. this is a robust and complex beer with a gripping amount of tartness that in my opinion comes across very crisp and refreshing. as it warms there is a more pronounced berry flavor, still more so of blackberry sweet tarts or something as opposed to a sweet and lush ripe blackberry. hinting at blueberry and raspberry as well.

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.

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.
