Tart and sour, with plums fairly prominent in flavor. Adds a little sweetness to balance the sour. This is really flat though and no carbonation whatsoever. Caught me off guard a bit at first and is quite drastic of a departure from what I expected. Comes across flat, then, and watery. I'm sure if allowed to age, the natural fermentation would provide body and carbonation, but as it was drank (fresh) it is lacking on that end.

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.
