Thanks to Sean for sharing this one. Served in a tulip over lunch at Northdown.

A - White foam settles a thin collar, minimal lacing. Hazed purplish body that reveals the meaning of Quetsche.

S - Jammy and quite sweet, with some nice funkiness in the periphery. The use of plums is quite unique relative to other fruit lambics I've had, and this captures more of the ripe flesh character rather than the tart skin. Gets a little bit more tart as it warms up.

T - The taste is a bit more tart, with more of the vinous plum skin character, mixed with funky overripe fruits. Some nebulous stone fruit malt character and lactic acidity in the background, but fruit dominates at this stage.

M - Dry, medium body, with pleasant carbonation. Crisp and extremely tannic in the finish. Spot on for the style.

D - Really unique stuff - curious how it will age, a I can imagine this getting quite sour in time. In any case, another great addition to the lambic world by Tilquin; well worth checking out. I could easily drink a 375ml bottle on my own.

375ml poured into snifter. Batch 2.

A - Pours a very hazy purple-ish orange. No head to speak of, yet signs of carbonation when swirled. Looks more like a light colored wine. It looks different and interesting.

S - Hints of plum mixed with cheesy funk and a touch of lactic sourness. Thankfully the funk doesn't overtake the other two. The fruit smell is noticeable and inviting. This combination leads me to believe this is going to be almost refreshing!

T - Oh, here we go! Plums and grapes mixed with some vanilla oak up front which is then washed away in a bath of lemon funky sourness. It leaves with some tart sweetness. This is excellent! Each part of the sip is as enjoyable as the last. Very unique as a cross between a gueuze and some variation of a Flanders.

M - Medium body with low carbonation. The refreshing aspect is definitely true. An easy drinking sour. The slight pucker in the middle doesn't overwhelm the experience.

O - I'm a big fan-boy of Tilquin's regular gueuze, and I have looked forward to this one for quite awhile. I am not disappointed at all. This is an outstandingly balanced fruited lambic. Just enough sour, funk, fruit, and sweetness to make for an extremely enjoyable experience. Go get one of these!

Batch 2, 375ml

A-Pours a hazy shade of pinkish-orange. Lacing and head is pretty minimal, but still lively and effervescent looking.

S- Pretty sweet with a little funk. Plum is evident but not huge on the nose. The overall aroma is not in your face like a lot of lambic, but rather mellow and complex. Very inviting.

T- Mild cheesy funk leads way to plum, lemon, raspberry, red grape skin , a tad oak, a bit of barnyard and finishes tart. The plum is mild but delicious and adds nicely to the overall subtle complexity of this beer.

M- Light to medium body. Crisp, satiating and highly drinkable.

O- Its 80 degrees out and theres nothing i would rather be drinking right now. So refreshing. My only complaint would be for more plum presence, but it would not stop me from drinking this delicious beer. Highly recommended.
