4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Peach-beige hazy, medium head, aromas of fresh citrus, hay and barnyard, dry herbs, "orange wine"-like medicinal undertones. Faint fruit? Palate has energetic acidiy, a rush of grapefruit freshness, a wonderful jab of peppery sour, long complex finish. Refreshing experience.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving: 375 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. 2013 vintage. It pours a hazy, almost pinkish amber with a slight white head. Sour, funky nose. Slight barnyard and hay notes. Bracingly tart up front with a light plum sweetness. Lots of wood, funk, and grass notes. Super long, sour finish. Either you love this kind of beer or you hate it. I’m a fan.

Grand merci to Tom10101 for sending me a bottle of this! 2013 750 ml bottle. Beautiful looking elixir this is, pours a unique dark golden burgundy with straw thin head. Aroma - sour lemons, and lots of funk. Taste - nice gueze funky lemon flavour up front, not as forward as the original but not in a bad way, the plumbs are not on your face but you do pick up on some tangy fruit in the aftertaste that makes for a fantastic finish. It’s excellent really damn excellent.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 2013 batch. Hazy amber with slight reddish tones, off-white head. Nose is barnyard, woody, slight lemon. Flavour is more like a gueuze than other fruit lambics I’ve had, barnyard, woody lemon... the plum kicks in at the finish with a chalky sweetness that blends really well with the base beer’s dryness. If it weren’t labelled plum I wouldn’t know which fruit was in here, it’s not overly apparent... but it makes the finish heavenly. Deserves its reputation.

Blodgrape/bärnsten. Grumlig med partiklar. Torkade plommon eller möjligen katrinplommonsufflé. Rund fin söt och syrlig. Hallon? Komplex och påminner om en mogen geuze. (Svagt drag av nyfångad gädda har jag även skrivit. Verkar lurt.)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quetsch has a light golden amber body with a hazy appearance. The head is off white and puffs up while and pouring into my glass although it later settles down a bit. The nose is very musty and barnyard-esque with notes of hay and sawdust. A mild fruit aroma on the nose accompanies a mild tart and sour funk. Taking the first sip I note a mild floral flavor with a tart plum and citrus taste. The flavour profile has considerable less must and dust notes that the aroma with a sweeter flavour than most lambic beers. So far I note that Quetsche is incredibly well balanced and although not the sourest or funkiest of lambics a great brew. The plums are not exactly the star of the show here but give enough sweet fruit notes to not blow the balance out of proportion. The only drawback to this beer is that I can’t get any more.
