A: Pours up a hazy, reddish amber, small, half finger head, fizzy, quickly fades.
S: Instant pinot grape and funk, some subtle sweetness, vinegar, some tannic woodiness.
T: Deep grape and apple, surprisingly bitter, tannic, and a bit sweet.
M: Dry, medium body.
O: A lot of people like this but I will stick with the gueuze, fruit lambic is not my cup of tea, I think fruit diminishes the complexity of lambic personally.

I've missed out on this beer every time I've been to Moeder, so scoring a bottle at my local shop was awesome. But. Woefully mediocre lambic.

Opaque pink color with zero head and quickly disappearing lacing. Small whisp of foam around the rim of the glass.

Jammy blackberry nose. Funk, grass, and grape skin. Acidic and midly sweet.

The taste is kind of bland. Both the fruit and the funk that you expect from a lambic are diluted and there's an astringent tartness.

Dead flat body.

I dunno. I love lambic and I love Tilquin but this is a miss, especially given the hype and rarity.

A fruit lambic that is red wine based and jammy, with sour grape, apple, cherry and blackberry. Good woodiness in the smell with the funk, with big fruit note after and grape must finishing. Taste is not as complex as one might expect, though enjoyable and highly drinkable. Little thin on the end, but with grape must and funk that is a good thing I found

750ml - 2018 vintage - 8.2% abv

Intense aromas and flavors that are delicately balanced, barnyard horse blanket, woody cork, oak barrel, spice, fruity pinot noir red wine grapes, bready wheaty malts, with mild dusty earthy herbal grassy hops

This one pours a light clear reddish color, with a very small and nearly immediately dissipating head, and no lacing.

This smells like jammy grape, red wine, prickly funk/lemon rind, pear, and cherry.

This is just wonderfully jammy, with almost a sweet cherry flavor, along with an old musty lemon funk that is just the bee's knees. It's slightly lactic, and a little bit sour, and super drinkable.

This is lighter bodied, with a definite lower level of carbonation. It's not completely still, but the carbonation level is very light. With a little bit more bubbles, this could pop even harder.

Even with the carb issues, this is one of the best Tilquin beers that I've ever had.

750ml cork and caged bottle, served at The Sovereign in DC in a tumbler glass. Pours a dark pink body, reddish hue with a one finger white head, short retention and a bit of lacing. The bubbles are big and don't last very long. Pretty much what was expected based on the carbonation talk with regards to Tilquin. Smell is lemon, lactic acid, fruity red wine grape, grape must, oak, wonderful barnyard funk, though ultimately on the mouthfeel, the carbonation is insufficient and the finish is a bit watery. Compared to the likes of St Lamvinus, this is still very good but does not reach that level of complexity. A lot of it is due to the lack of carbonation. That being said, this was a delicious grape-forward lambic that I would still recommend. Just imagining this to have sufficient carbonation is enough to get me excited.
