COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Quetsche Tilquin à l’ancienne (6.4% alc / vol) is a spontaneous fermentation beer obtained from the fermentation of destoned fresh purple plums (variety Prune de Namur or Quetsche véritable d’Alsace, close to the Damson) in a blend of 1 and 2 years old lambics for a period of 4 months. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, it is re-fermented in the bottle for a minimum period of 3 months. The lambics used were fermented and matured in our own oak barrels at the blendery. They are made from worts brewed by Boon, Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon. The taste is slightly tart but also fruity and round which makes this Quetsche à l’ancienne may be more accessible for non-experts or less sophisticated palates. It also has a slight dryness from the skin of the plums. The nose perceives a plum brandy perfume.

First batch (2012) with a BB date of 23/02/2022 is made with ’Prune de Namur’ and limited to 500 bottles.

Second batch (2013) limited to 5000 * 75cl and 10000 * 37,5cl.

willisread (624) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAY 20, 2015
375 ml bottle from Tanakaya. 2013-2014 vintage. Poured into a snifter. Hazy deep amber golden color a small off-white head. Huge plum nose along with vinegar, wood, hay and pear. Quite tart with a nice fruitiness that wasn’t in the gueuze. The plum really stands out. Medium body with a average to soft carbonation. Tart finish that lingers, but isn’t intensely sour. A lovely beer.
