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.

375 ml corked and caged bottle, label says 2014 2015 on it, best before 03/02/2025. Served in a Prairie Artisan Ales lambic glass (tumbler style), the beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with almost an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there's not much lacing at all. The brew smells like plums, funk, earthiness, and vinegar. I could really smell the plum fruitiness as soon as I opened the bottle. Taste is similar to the aroma wtih plum, funk, vinegar, lemon, floralness, white grape and grainy flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's easy to drink with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good fruited lambic, this is definitely worth buying if you come across a bottle. $15.99 a bottle.

Nice plum flavors with a decent amount of tartness. It pours very muddy with a slight purple color. It has a nice funky sour smell with a little bit of the fruit coming through.

First time having this and it's good
