Copper to brown with excellent clarity and no discernible head. The aroma is of brettanomyces and tart blackberries. I’m tasting a very tart brettanomyces and blackberry combo. The mouth is moderately carbonated and very dry.

A 750ml corked and caged bottle, with a neck label of 2019-2020, and a best before date of 28th January 2030. Poured into a Tilquin stemmed glass.

Appearance: A very nice orangey pink colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly to a ring around the glass, while leaving only some sparse spotty lacing.

Aroma: Blackberries, oak, light funk and tangy spritzy lemon zest.

Taste: Lightly sour, blackberries, blackcurrant, oak, lemon yoghurt, light funk, lemon zest.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with soft to moderate carbonation.

Overall: Really easy and enjoyable to drink. Aroma and flavours were smooth and light but extremely balanced, with good fruit, strong oak and light funk.

12.7oz bottle of the 2020/2021 vintage. Best by date of 26/01/2031. My only complaint about this beer is the very low carbonation but that is probably due to its young age and has not had enough time to refermented in the bottle. Plum color with virtually no head. Aroma is very funky. Funky cheese, barnyard, berries, and wood. Flavor of blackberry that is tempered by the funk. Very slight vinegar with mild to moderate acidity. As I mentioned earlier very little life in the beer and that hurts its overall impression as I think some carbonation would of lit up the palate more.

750 ml corked & caged bottle, vintage 2017-2018, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 6.0%. 260 grams of blackberries / bramble per liter of lambic have been used for this vintage. Slightly hazy peach to red colour, small off-white to pink head. Aroma of brettanomyces / farmhouse, lemons and oak, also unripe blackberries. Very sour flavour, notes of lemons, brettanomyces, oak and unripe blackberries again. Tart and moderately astringent finish.

2020-2021 vintage
Pours a light fizzy head, mostly clear cranberry to cherry red color

Nose brings great funk, barnyard funk and sour acidic funk, a bit grassy cheesy funk, typical Tilquin greatness of funk, fair red berry like fruit, brambleberry, even a hint of sour cherry like, splashing the funk brings more berry fruit and general funk

Taste fair funk, cheesy barnyard funk, sour acidity, fair acidity with tartness in general, but seems a touch watered down for some reason, some fruit, red berry, bramble, but hard to pinpoint it as blackberry, even a bit of like a tart cranberry character, funk brings more fruit, general berry, fair flemmy finish

Mouth is med to lighter bod, a little flemmy with bright acidity, med to lower carb

Overall very nice beer, a good gueuze like but maybe a touch watered down and fruit was not a ton, but still a great beer

Served from the bottle in a Jackie O's shaker pint glass.

Pours a clear cranberry juice (okay, a bit on the orange-y side compared to, say, the good stuff from Trader Joe's) topped by maybe a finger of dirty white foam. The nose comprises loam, shiitake, funky wheat, burlap sack, and some mild blackberry. The taste allows the berries to come forth a bit, but the funk is still rather strong, and everything feels like it's been poured over river rocks. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying, sticky finish. Not gonna lie, the overbearing funk on this one didn't sit right with me (nor with VDubb, with whom I shared the bottle), drowning out the fruit without adding much in the way of pleasantness.

Bottle, 19-20 season.

The nose has a lot of the classic Tilquin funk, earthy and mushroomy with preserved lemon with mild blackberry notes. Moderate oak. The palate opens tart and sour with a blend of preserved lemon, key limes, mushroom, earth. Blackberries are present, floral, fruity, mildly tannic with vanilla and oak. Minimal seed character. Medium light in body, great fruity finish.

12.7 oz bottle, poured into a tulip at ~40 degrees F and allowed to warm during consumption.

L: Pours an opaque ruddy plum-flesh pinkish red, and forms virtually no head which lasts virtually no time.

S: Sharp tartness, wound through with underripe berry, mildew, used sock, and red wine.

T: This opens as a tongue-puckeringly tart unripe berry, and swiftly manifests additional fruits in the form of plum, nectarine, and an almost grenache grape vinous quality. A soft metallic tone underlays the entire sip, and a haze of mildew and cheese mold lurks in the backdrop beside some almost oaky tannins. The finish lingers as tart berry, mildew, and vinousness.

F: Light to medium, and fairly still.

O: This is a delight, as Tilquin generally produces.

Here we have yet another trade extra from the generous fo1ksguitar! This one I'm quite excited to try. Authentic Lambics are always a pleasure, and I'm not sure I've ever had one conditioned on blackberries. Other sours sure, but not a Lambic, and I'm wondering how the complexity will work with the fruit. Let's find out

Pours a cloudy brownish maroon with just a finger of off white head that fades to a thin cap and leaves minimal lacing

It's definitely intensely funky in the nose, but the blackberry really adds a nice round jammy character, even for a bottle with nearly 3 years on it. I'm picking up on aromas of wet hay, lemon juice, white wine vinegar, juicy blackberry, old leather, sharp oak, straw, and white pepper

The fruit is actually even more intense in taste, quite the opposite of what I expect in beer but it's more than welcome. On the front end of the sip I'm tasting tart blackberry, lemon rind, leather, white wine vinegar, green apple, and smooth oak. The swallow brings notes of wet hay, super sharp oak, jammy blackberry, white pepper, lemon rind, and light bluberry

A medium body pairs with moderate tingling carbonation, resulting in a super tart and dry beer. Finishes crisp and refreshing

Oh man, this is one hell of a lambic. The fruit adds much more than I expected and I'm all about it. Great stuff, really a pleasure to drink
