THANKS EMMADAN!

A- Beautiful pour 750ml to bottle. Diluted blackberry purple pink hues with a light pink head. Small half finger cap dies out to tiny ring. Lacing is rare but a few spots form here and there.

S- Classic Tilquin bugs. Some of the most interesting ones with that raw, earthy, mineral funky musty old wine fruitiness and cheese. Lemon lactic is huge. Wet oak vinous. Massive fresh berries are bold but not pinpointed as blackberry.

T- Like the aroma but with bigger juicier berries which again feel like berries and in the realm of blackberries without quite being like a fresh bowl of them. A but less funky here but still plenty musty. Very sour at the end lactic all the way. Tilquin profile is so complex and musty funk beast. The berries compliment it very well.

MF- Dry and light body with an intense oily slickness to go with the sours. Medium carbonation and a fizzy frothy texture. Acidity grips the taste buds and lingers for long after each sip.

Really didn't even know this brew existed, thankfully great friends bring over some epic brews. Turns out berries go very well with the complex and funky character of the Tilquin lambic.

Caged 750 as part of a 5 bottle lambic share (De Cam Framboise, De Cam Lambiek, 3F Oude Kriek, 3F OG). This was solid, but my least favorite of the lineup. Color was less vivid than I expected from the bottle. Good sourness, but little funk. A solid beer, but I prefer my lambics to be funk-forward. This was a fun addition to our line-up, but I prefer TIlquin's Quetsche to Mure.

Drank from a 12.7 fl.oz. corked and caged bottle purchased at Liquor World, Cambridge, MA
Best before : 23/11/2025
Served in a tulip

Beautiful appearance. The crystal clear, fuchsia colored body was capped by a tight and frothy, inch-tall, light pink crown that slowly dropped to a lasting halo. Minimal amount of streaky lacing.

The nose was rather interesting. Tart and funky. Lots of musty cellar character. There was a crisp, dry yeastiness. Bit of fruity sweetness too. I might guess some type of berries, but I probably would not peg this for a blackberry flavored lambic. The fruity quality came forth a bit more later in the session.

The flavor profile was definitely more simplistic than the nose. Sharp, tart, acidic notes led things off. Loads of lemon. Perhaps some white vinegar too. Subtle underripe berry notes in the center. There was a dry, mineral-like quality as well. More tart lemon and acidity on the back end. Pithy, lemon rind-like notes appeared in the finish. Hint of bitterness.

Light, crisp, fluffy mouthfeel. The beer contained a super fine, zippy effervescence that frothed up nicely on the palate.

I often find that fruit-infused lambics contain little fruit character and are often more tart and acidic than their non-fruited counterparts. Oude Mûre Tilquin à L'ancienne is another perfect example of this. While the aroma was fairly complex and contained some subtle berry notes, the flavor profile was rather sharp and simplistic.
