Bottle shared with friends. Pours a golden/orange liquid, with a small white head disappearing quite fast. Aromas are funky, barnyard, citrus zest. Very good spontaneous beer, medium sourness, low bitterness, quite fruity, tart, funk. Loved it!

Hmmmm
What happened here? Very flat pour, quite a flat beer.
Aromas and taste and all muted, and whilst quite sour, it almost struggles to be a gueuze. Not a lot of fruit flavours.
Need to try again.

This beer pours a pale amber with a large, dissipating head. The aroma is relatively sour, with a very fresh sour plum scent, and lemon juice, green apple skin, and some barnyard notes. The flavor reminds me of sour candy, with strong plum notes, menthol, and a huge citric bite, and s softer finish. The mouthfeel s light and very fizzy. Overall this is very tart, but still nicely complex. The finish is very strong on the plum, and less intense than the start.

Pours a murky, fleshy color. It looks like the flesh of a peach. Not quite as dark as a plum. Nice nose of tart stone fruit. Some funk. There's a lack effervescence that stands out the most. The flavors are there, but greater carbonation would certainly punctuate and accentuate those flavors more. The lack of carbonation is kind of the glaring characteristic here. I'm a big Tilquin fan, but there's something missing in this one.
