375ml bottle purchased in Maine. Poured into HF sherry glass.

A- Cork pops out with a nice "pop". Pours purplish, brownish color with a slight reddish gold hue to it. Nice carbonation with great consistency, despite what some people have said about the 375ml bottles. Pretty much no head forms despite the carbonation and what little lacing there is slides back into the glass leaving a perfectly flat top with just a slight ring around the edges.

S- Light plum aroma balanced with a very well made lambic that brings notes of tartness, a little bit of barnyard funk, slight hay + grass, and a hint of lemon. When the cork was first popped out of the bottle it had a very aromatic presence but the aroma faded a bit to about average strength. All in all it was fairly complex, displayed qualities of a well made lambic, and was fairly complex yet pleasant smelling.

T- Lightly tart lemons, juicy plums, wet hay, finishes with a light lemony tartness with a hint of sour plums that come out a little bit more in the aftertaste. Extremely well balanced and I love how the plums come out fairly subtle, making their presence known but not dominating the qualities of the lambic.

M- Medium bodied to maybe a tiny bit on the light side, very drinkable and almost juice like despite the mild acidity, perfect amount of carbonation.

O- This was a fantastic fruited lambic that was very well done using some of the best lambic. I'm definitely glad I picked up a couple bottles of this despite the price of $16/375ml (which is on the reasonable end). I think this would do well with some age on it, bringing out the funk a little bit more. Although I'd say it's perfect for drinking now.

375ml bottle, at 't Brugs Beertje in Brugge

I figured locating this one at a remotely reasonable price in the US was unlikely so I was pleased to find one at a reasonable price in this landmark beer bar. "250 grams of plums per liter of lambic" - this impacts all aspects of the beer, starting with its deep orange/pink body down to its tart fruity nose and finish. Plum seems to be a nice, and possibly underused, ingredient in lambic due to the nice balance of tartness and sweetness. Tasty.

Best before 01/2023. Poured into a 10 oz snifter and split with my brother.

Ruby red/brown cloudy body with minimal white head.

Plum and white grapes, tart cherries, green apple, sweet simple sugar.

Upfront incredibly lemony, dry and tart, as the acidity passes the plum coats the palate and balances the beer nicely. Lingering acidity and tart dryness. Residual sugars are present in abundance.

Feel is puckering and dry. Medium bodied. Low-medium carbonation.

Overall a great lambic that will improve with age but is fantastic to drink now.

375 ml C&C bottle served in a 3F tumbler. 2012/2013 bottle.

A: Pours a murky brown color with some amber edges from the light. A thin white head forms on the pour and recedes to a thin ring.

S: Tart and slightly funky. Bursts of plum skins, some fruity berry flesh and light oak. The oaky is woody and slightly sweet. Some grape skins as well.

T: A little puckering with some sourness that hits the back of the throat. Oaky with a slight malty sweetness to it. A little red wine grape to it with a nice funky undertone.

M: Low carbonation. Not quite flat, but pretty close. Tart finish. Light body.

O: Despite the low carbonation this was still an enjoyable beer. It had just enough carbonation to keep the body lively and light across the tongue.

BB Jan 29, 2023. I am a big fan of the Tilquin Gueuze and was very excited to try this.

The beer is hazy orange. Small white head. Recedes slowly.

Nose contains funky yeast, a beautiful scent. Plum is strong. The yeast is heavy but moderated by the plum. Lots going on.

The taste is beautiful. Funky yeast, moderately soue. Lots of plum, but wonderfully integrated into the funk. Other fruits as well. Very dry. Finish is all horse blanket funk, with some plum. Wow! Really good.

Medium bodied, moderately carbonated. Drying and refreshing. Very crisp.

Overall, terrific. A lovely beer.

I was pouring this at The Festival, and man was it a good beer. I couldn't wait to get a bottle to drink it. Split with rudzud.

Very light fizzy head, hazy murky reddish orange tangerine color.

Nose is great, great gueuze like sour malt blend, some sour funk and some light fruity mellow sour, no real specific fruit too start but plum eventually comes through faint, but it's there, a light vinous and light hint lemon and vinous like.

Taste brings plenty of tart sour fruit, light vinous quality, some dark fruit plum and little fig like. Fairly sweet to start but eventually dries out, with more caramel like base malts, soured malts, tart base fruit, some acetic acid, nice date like chewy juicy fruit, hint starch. Light sour acidic fruit flavours. Finish is dry with more plum and date, light tart fruity flavours and juicy sour flavours lingering.

Mouth is med, lighter bit decent carb, little syrupy, some tart fruit with light sour.

Overall awesome.

Split with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice hazy light plum hue with a thin wisp that leaves a light halo.

S - Aromas of faint genetic fruit initially, but plum comes out subtlety and eventually. Light tart aromas.

T - Taste is more if the genetic fruit then sweet, juicy plum comes out, nice and tart, good fruit notes, nice tart. That standard tilquin notes then nice soft subtle fruit.

M - Mouthfeel is spot on for the style, tart and refreshing.

O.- Overall I very much enjoyed this beer, great plum flavour. Tart and delicious

Poured from the 75cl bottle into a Cantillon Gueuze glass.

Real nice looking beer. Looks a real dark version of grapefruit juice. Deep orange and dark pink color, with a cloudy consistency and some cola like bubbles. Head is off white sort of starting off soapy but then always settling to a solid creamy white collar, with the odd whisp of lacing. Real nice appealing looking beer.

Tilquins always seem to smell lemony to me, and this one is no exception. Zesty lemon, with fruit basket action more sensations of strawberry to me than plums. Fruit pulp, light acid, not much heat coming off this either. Very controlled and nice.

Palate continues much of the bouquets' senses. Lemon fruity zest with a mild tartness. Low acid without too much heat either. No vinegar but a big malt wheat chewy backbone that lets the flavors hang. Strawberry and jammy like aftertaste, with nice tart plum skin like rind. Really coats your teeth as well.

Overall a real solid memorable gueuze from these guys. The parts all fit, they may not be the greatest, but the all add up to a real impressive and very drinkable lambic.

S - Tart lemon, lactic acid, and sweet plums. The plums add a nice sweetness to the normally tart Tilquin nose

T - Tart lemon, good funky blue cheese, and a light plum presence that adds a slight sweetness.

M - Light dry funk with a dry finish that lingers on

O - Nice sour with a good plum presence that helps cut the overall tartness

375mL bottle, served in a 25cL Tilquin tumbler.
Only allowed to settle for 24 hours, a bit longer would probably ensure better clarity.

Opaque orange color with very slight reddish tint from the fruit skins, audibly sizzling carbonation that settles to a smoothly textured blanket of foam on the surface.

Barnyard aromas, oaky sandalwood, mellow fruit. Sightly acidic at first, which mellows after a few minutes.

Taste is oaky and acidic, characteristic yeast from the house barrels lends notes of damp forest floor and citrus. Plum pits and skins are there, not overpowering or overly assertive, but there's a presence that sets it apart from the Oude Gueuze. Plum is such a sweet fruit, but here it's reduced to the acidity of the fruit skins and the slight nuttiness from the pits. Overall it seems a little more oaky than the gueuze somehow, and the citrus character more subdued. A very enjoyable and traditional fruited lambic.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Orange with a slight pink tinge. Good white head.

Smell - Bright lemony tartness. Some funkiness. A hint of fruit, but definitely not what I'd call plum.

Taste - Fruitier. Lots of lemon and citrus acidity. Some grape notes. Less funk here. Sharp sourness. Plum only really comes together in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light body. Bright sourness. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Good stuff, but I'd like a more distinct plum flavor.

b2 375 into a HF stem

A- pours a murky cross between the color of red grapefuit and lighter purple plum tones, barely a head to speak of. if the color wasn't so nice, itd be easy to grade this lower here

S- some light hay, lemon, tangy plum tannins, sweet plum, stone fruit,

T- even better than the nose, the plum works so well with the lambic, The plum adds a really nice semi-tart, sweet counter balance to the funk, lemony acidic punch of the lambic, wonderful

M- im guessing maybe the lambic used for this is a little young, as the cork barely popped and there was just a touch of carbonation and the body of the beer was too thin to really hold up as well as I would have liked, touch more carbonation wouldve put this beer into my top 5 sours, easily

O- Amazing, nearly perfect brew and I hope Tilquin continues to experiment with different fruit. I love this, but it makes me want to see what Cantillon or Drie Fonteinen could do with plums

375 ml bottle into a snifter. 1/29/2023

pale brown color, mild head.

tart, vinegar on the nose. not much plums, but its there. taste is also vinegary and sour. some fruity notes. I'd say blend of a gueuze and fruity lambic. medium bodied and medium carbonation.

overall good, not as good as regular gueuze. high price tag. good once.

After the introduction of Tilquin Oude Gueuze, the anticipation rises for more varieties from these masterful blends. With plumb on the canvas, Oude Quetsche burst onto the scene with strong sourness and a plethora of dry fruit.

But like true, mature and unblended Lambic, the ale pours with absolute stillness. With no effervescence, froth or lace- the calm ale rests upon a hazy copper-gold color to carry its visual weight.

Mouth wetting sourness punctures the nose with seriously sour cherries, apples, berries and musty orchard fruit varieties of peach, pear and plumb. Its strong vinous notes are distinctly of dry white wine mixed with damp hay and horse hair. Lightly leathery and with cellar-like must the scent develops into a potent white wine vinegar, sea air and nail polish remover.

And that jaw piercing sourness slices right through the thirst with ease. Sour grapes and vinegar tones are high on the initial palate and is only heightened by the weight of the flat beer to saturate the taste buds fully. A leathery middle palate introduces the more earthen barnyard character just ahead of the taste of under ripened orchard fruits, brine and acetone to finish.

Medium-light in body, the ale's lack of carbonation keeps the beer feeling a bit fuller than usual. Its strong acidity pangs inside the cheeks for mouth-puckering effect. Astringent, salty, and powdery- the ale is as complicated in its textures as it is in its taste.

I can very well concede that I have gotten a compromised bottle and will likely seek that out before much more commentary on the ale.

375ml bottle, 2012-13, poured into a Gueuze Tilquin tumbler.

The beer pours a very murky plum flesh color, very opaque, with about a finger and a half of fizzy, white head that has decent retention and leaves a spot or two of lace behind. The aroma is pleasant, lots of funk, fresh plum fruit, red grape, woody oak, lactic sourness with some dark grapefruit tanginess. Lots of funky fruit on the tongue, plum, dark grapefruit, red grape with great funk behind it, the lactic qualities are a little overbearing and really bring out the tang factor. The wood is more subtle on the tongue, and the malt is hardly noticeable. The body is lively albeit a bit thick, with great carbonation (hooray) that coats the mouth well, and has a nice creamy soft touch with just a bit of prickliness as it goes down.

Verdict: A really nice lambic from Tilquin, the plum came across quite nicely and I was lucky to get a carbed 375ml bottle. The body is a bit heavy for a fruited lambic, but overall, this is delicious, tangy for sure, but delicious.

2012 into a wide red wine glass.

Appearance: Slight red hued orange. Murky from yeast. Big fluffy fizzy head.

Smell: Mildly acetic. Soft fruit aromas, strawberry and plum (see my other reviews for "Everything smells like strawberry to me," and take my apologies). Inviting albeit uninspired.

Taste: Whoa whoa whoa, there's the inspiration. Unassuming aroma gives way to superb flavor. Enamel peeling sourness carries deeply complex plum and wild yeast and bacteria induced flavors, floating on a thick lactic sourness base. Barrel comes in via interesting woody notes, nothing like the garish vanilla of most American barrel aged beer (don't take this as me being overly precious: I actually prefer the "garish vanilla" of new oak / heavy handed oaking, but I'm impressed by this). Long, succulent finish, with the huge flavor playing off the persistent tingle of sourness.

Great lambic. None of that hard water mineraly-ness of Cantillon, more mouth enveloping lactic sourness and a whole lot of interesting fruit and yeast flavors. I taste plum (if not "the plums")--and a bunch more. No offputting flavors at all. It's a little funky and dirty, but those notes are completely backgrounded (and delicious, like everything else in the flavor).

Mouthfeel: Powerfully sour without being heartburn-inducingly acidic. Thick lactic sourness coats the mouth--I *love* it. Long succulent and sour aftertaste lets the taste go on and on. Perfect.

Overall: It's absurd that you can buy this beer off the shelf in a world where people line up to drink Zwanze at bars.

Excellent beer, I really loved it. Worth whatever you see it being sold for at the store. I paid about $16, and will have trouble not dropping $30+ when I see it around Manhattan. Tilquin are delivering. Don't sleep on them if you like lambic, because they won't be as readily available as they are now forever (unless they price like Drie Fonteinen I suppose... though maybe not even then).

Both out of a 750ml bottle and a 375ml bottle. 2013 vintage, poured into a Drie Fonteinen wine stem.

Pour: Pours a hazy, blood orange, with some purple hues mixed in. Was lucky to get a 375ml bottle with carb, and a finger of frothy, cream colored head forms and sticks around for quite a while.

Smell: Funky with hay, barnyard, and a light old book up front, with an equally large lactic presence. Some lemon rind and juicy red grapes. I suppose there is an aspect of plum in there, but this is more vinous than expected. Still, smells amazing.

Taste: Up front, lots of hay and barnyard funk, and some lactic bite. In the middle, overripe red grapes and some plums mix with lemony bite and doughy yeast. Finishes funky and tart, yet with a lingering oak and "juicy fruit" (yes, the gum).

Mouthfeel: Nice tartness and rather refreshing. Warming from the 6.4%. Nice.

Overall: I love this lambic, simple as that. Can't wait to age some.

750ml bottle into a tall tulip

A: Pours a hazy purple-ish orange color with two fingers if creamy head on top. Good retention and lacing.

S: Bright. Sour apricots come out strong with a musty funk behind to balance. I can detect a dark fruit character in the background, though I'm not sure I would have picked it out as plums if I didn't know. A bit perfumey in the finish.

T: Much more sour than I would have anticipated from the aroma, though it's more tart that it really is overly acidic. Plums seem to be a bit more distinguishable in the flavor than they were in the aroma. Funk is there, but it is held back a bit by the stronger fruitiness and sourness.

M: Very good. Great carbonation with a full body, maybe a bit more full than I'm used to for the style.

O: A great fruit lambic. Sour, fruity, funky - it's all there. The aroma is particularly stunning. The flavor is still quite good, but is not quite as balanced and complex as the aroma.

375ml bottle. Best before January 29, 2023. Served in a Russian River stemmed glass.

Appearance: Pours a dirty red/orange color with almost no head whatsoever. Body is nearly opaque.

Smell: Plum, grape, grapefruit citrus, oak. There's a light wet hay in the aroma as well but the overall funk it pretty subdued.

Taste: Nice tart lactic acidity right upfront. Oak, plum, red wine grapes, tart citrus, and just a slight hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, slick mouthfeel. Carbonation is low. Finishes dry

Overall: I've been wanting to try this for a while and it didn't disappoint. I probably like their gueuze a little better, but this is still an excellent beer.

Batch 2, 2012-2013, 375ml bottle into a wine glass. Best Before: 29/01/2023.

A - Pours a beautiful hazy pink grapefruit body that just screams pulpy fruit juice. A fingers worth of bone white foam fades into a thick edging that lasts quite a while. Swirling creates some gorgeous lacing but retention is low here. I was told the 750's carbed up a bit more than the 375's but this is looking pretty damn active to me.

S - Lemons, hay, funky cheese, and some stone fruit. The plums are very subtle here but they provide just enough fruitiness to make this stand out from the normal gueuze. Very brett heavy, I get just a touch of plastic on the end.

T - Super mouth puckering sour. Lemons, hay, plenty of funk, and some woody oak barrel. The plums are present in a light stone fruit juiciness but seem to be squashed out by the huge sourness. Its incredibly tasty, its just not as fruit forward as other fruit lambics tend to be. In fact it's extremely gueuze like. Mouth feel is crisp and lively.

O - This was a damn good fruit lambic. Incredibly sour and mouth puckering. I was hoping the plums would be a bit more noticeable but its still a really impressive beer. Glad to have a few more bottles to age up a bit.

Pours an red-orangish brown color. Probably a bit too red for a wood stain, but it would be a bright cherry pine, kinda garish, really. No real head. We're in lambic country, so normal rules do not apply, not that I'm much of a believe in appearance ratings. The aroma is plum jam on top of mild vinegar and gueuze funk, but the fruit is dominant. The plum smell is on the apricot end of the plum world. It definitely smells like plums, but there's a fair bit of variation within plums. This beer smells more like what is sold as fresh French prunes, around here, rather than the juicier, sweet-tart Santa Rosa plum that I more closely associate with the fruit, though I have no idea what Tilquin actually used, of course. The funk is mildly cheesy with some nice horse blanket tendencies bouncing around (it's been too long since I used "horse blanket" in a review). The taste is light to medium tart with more of that fruit flavor. It's still relatively sweet and a tad lacking in flavor for what I expect from a plum sour, but I don't mean that as a knock. It's just a tad different than expected. The fruit flavor is refined and melds nicely with the tartness. There's a big lemony note. The vinegar tartness is actually pretty restrained, and there's none of that back-of-the-throat burn that many American sours suffer from. Tilquin does a magnificent job balancing the flavors, showing off that quality lambic brewer touch. Carbonation is normal. Mouthfeel is a tad slick with fruitiness. Moderate pucker. I quite enjoyed this beer. It's not a dramatic beer, but it has a lovely fruit flavor and oozes lambic complexity and refinement.

Bottle decanted completely into a #properglassware Gueuze Tilquin tumbler. Cloudy, honey-amber color with slight purple tints, and a small off-white head that receded to a wispy cap but never fully dissipated; minimal short-lived lacing. Beautiful aroma, jammy sweet, plum and peach, funky, tart, acidic. The aroma was well-reflected in the taste, a good snap of lactic tartness up front, citrus, funky grass, mid-palate bringing in cool, sweet flavors of plum and other stone fruit, dry tannic finish, with a lingering plum skin aftertaste. Very tasty, very enjoyable. Body was medium, mouthfeel crisp and prickly, medium carbonation, extremely smooth for the style, especially considering the acidity. Overall a tremendous beer, and I'm glad I have more in the cellar. You know, this might be my favorite sour.

Sweet plums, fruity-floral notes and plenty of leather, must, barnyard and funk in the nose. On the palate it is medium bodied with a nice light carbonation that adds to this brew's smoothness. Plums dominate throughout and add a subtle, balancing sweetness to the beer. The plums drive this beer but they shine because of the subtle and gradual lemon-y lactic acidity that culminates in the finish but it's not bitingly sour. It's light and gradual, providing a long sour finish. This is an absolutely gorgeous beer that is beautifully put together. All parts pair perfectly with each other and make for a crazy drinkable Lambic that is gloriously complex.

Poured into my Shelton Brox. sampler at "The Festival."

This beer is "aged on plums."

The beer poured a lovely pink color, super citrusy taste, almost like I am drinking grapefruit juice (but without the associated bitterness). I would describe this as more of a funky and lightly tart beer than anything that was very sour. Quite good, and for a citrus nut like myself very tasty.

750 mL bottle split with my wife tonight.

The beer is a beautiful color. Pinkish orange with a soft, off-white head.

The aroma is fabulous. Plums, plum juice, stone fruit, lambic. Wow. Can't wait to dive in.

Beautiful balance. Elegant and remarkably smooth. Abundant plums with a nice tart/sour character throughout. The finish is the definition of awesome. Zero sharpness, acidity, acetic burn but yet this beer retains all that is great about a lambic.

I'm so glad I have a few more of these. This was the best new beer I've had in a long time. Something I'd like to stock in quantity in my cellar.

Overall, phenomenal.
