This is the typical Tilquin blend used for making Oude Gueuze Tilquin à l’ancienne, which means a blend of 1, 2 and 3 years old lambics from Boon, Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon, but which was intentionally not refermented. Therefore, it is flat. Once aged in bottle, this blend would give an Oude Gueuze Tilquin à l’ancienne. To avoid any refermentation and carbonation, this blend is kept in the fridge. It is served on cask only on festivals and opendoors as a traditional flat lambic, and sometimes sold to local bars.

neongolden (882) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2015
(On cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas, July 24 2015) Pours hazy dark gold medal medium lingering white cask head and lace. Aroma fresh cheddar, lactic, lemon and orange peels, moderate to strong Brett basement, dried leaves, some old hops, wood is fairly light for style. Sulphur really comes out as it airs. Bright and funky on the palate with lactic yogurt and lots of oranges, with some underripe pit fruit, lemon, big tart citrus juice acidity, and undercurrent of peach skin, herbal hops and oak. Funk is dry earth and a bit of sulphur. Finish is dry, a bit tart, and almost astringent from hops. Smooth light to medium mouthfeel. This is really good! Complexity and balance of a gueuze without the refermentation and a lovely cask mouthfeel.

Le style lambic n’étant pas le style de bières que je privilégie habituellement, je pourrais déguster cette bière encore, encore... toujours. Le nez est délicat, doux sans être sucré, et sens le vieux lambic. Rien d’acide, on est dans la subtilité. Le malt est un support magnifique à cette bière fraîche dont les principales saveurs me font penser à celles émanant d’un vieux pain. Frais, court sans être sec, un grand coup de coeur ici!

bartlebier (2820) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - MAY 3, 2015
Pours@source, SA/SU 10e TdG 2015. Near-gelatinous deep yellow baxter pee pour with a meaty gravitas oozes with a spectaculary funky, confronting yet cultivated sense of drinkable dirt and sweat: heavy cheese notes (jonge Gouda), sweat, chunky meaty fruit esters (fleshy stone fruit), lemon zest, spectacularly cheesy old hops. This blend is all about the exploring the drinkable textures of the animalistic, instead of the limits of the sour - , a true relief when encountered on a 2-day sour spree. Mouthfeel is nearly chewy, flat and gelatinous, offering some sweetness as a firm base puddle for lemon rind parfait and grapefruit pith and even sweeter orange peel to shine in. Juicy, milky, pineapple sweet finish. Many-faceted, gorgeously unbalanced, dirty surprise that betrays a welcome wild "Southern" imprint.
