look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a hazy reddish orange, with no foam whatsoever.

Smell is acidic, with notes of plums, lemon and orange.

Taste is very sour and fruity with notes of ripe plums and a lot of lime. Complex and evolving flavor.

Mouthfeel is thin and completely flat.

Overall, a superb sour with so much going on. The mouthfeel is a bit jarring if you're not prepared for it, though.

Outstanding geuze that seamlessly integrates fresh plums into the blend to add a touch of nuanced flavor to an already complex beer.

Pinkish amberish hue most likely from the plums. Thin soapy head atop the colored liquid that fades away. Nice balance of slightly sweet fruit, solid musty attic/funk and oak in the aroma. Lester kicking in the background.

Taste is plum skins, cherry pie filling, green apple, leather and a hint of Chardonnay. Nice wine-like tannins keeps every sip dry and crisp.

Tart, effervescent, funky and ligh-bodied. A real treat worth the price of admission.

Poured a nice hazy orange with a decent head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of strawberries, tartness, and something reminiscent of blue cheese but not as strong in a very good kind of way. Strong sour notes tend to overpower the palette. There is dry bitterness on the back end and lemon. Nice carbonation. The one negative was an iron of taste notes. This is worth trying but the sour tends to overpower most everything else.

Love the crisp tartness. My first Tilquin and I will continue to seek them out.

L) Pours a beautiful ruby-tinted amber. There is a white head when agitated, but it quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing.

S) The aroma is just oozing with incredibly tart dark fruit notes and a crisp acidity that tickles the nose all the way to the throat. Plenty of green apple, stone fruit, and unripened plum with very little aside from a slight honey-like smell from the malt to round out the intense fruity acids.

T) It tastes as the nose would indicate, but it is even more acidic than anticipated. This baby drinks like a warhead. Notes of black cherry, dark fruit, unripened stone fruit, green apple, passion fruit, guava! This is a sangria of acid, and what small amount of malt aroma I could pick up in the nose I am having a difficult time relocating on the tongue.

F) Medium carbonation and body. Incredibly spritzy. Crisp and refreshing. Pretty ideal for the style, not much more to say really.

O) I would give this a pick up any time I saw it, especially to keep on hand for friends who may have never had a true lambic experience.
