Each batch of Zure van Tildonk is carefully aged in the cellars of Engelburch Monastery for several months prior to release.

lambicboy12 (43) - salt lake, Utah, USA - MAY 18, 2014
1- sweet tarts candy, fruity esters, plum, some toast in the background 2- dark orange and hazy, quickly dissipating tan head 3- light toasty sweetness, heavy candy sourness that lingers, spicy phenols 4- medium body with a hot aftertaste 5- An ok beer but the sourness is just too candy-ish. The hotness in the aftertaste is distracting.

Klassisches Sour ohne große Höhen. Angenehm zu trinken, leicht fruchtig, dazu etwas arg im Essig, aber die Beeren im Hintergrund sind nicht schlecht, Schon ne gute Sache.

McTapps (6500) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2016
Bottle bought in the Netherlands. The beer has got a hazy light amber-strawy colour with a low head and medium body. Aroma of yeast, malt and acid. Taste of yeast, straw, flowers, mild sourness, plaster and unripe fruits. Expected more.

erickok (5451) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2015
Golden body, medium head. Interesting aroma, sour candy, green apple. Perhaps not as delicate or complex as the well known ones, but I dig the fruitiness an liveliness. (375ml bottle from QV.ID)

danlo (2594) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 13, 2015
330ml bottle from Mikkeller webshop. Yellow golden colour with a foamy white head leaving lacing. Grainy aroma with citrus and funk. Sour tart citric taste with lactic notes, grain, woody and yeasty funk. Sharp mouthfeel, light bodied, spritzy carbonation, dry tangy sour finish. Refreshing, quite drinkable.

ShivanDragon (3509) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2015
schenkt wazig en bleek geel met minimale witte kraag. aroma is zoals te verwachten zuur, maar .... toch op de één of andere manier..... beperkt... ;br-: smaken zijn redelijk zurig, zoet, funky-ish en toch ook weer in de smaak ... is er iets wat mij weerhoud om het een goed bier te vinden.... het is het gewoon net niet... te beperkt qua complexiteit voornamelijk...

Not sure where to put this rating. My bottle had 2014 in big letters but it was a 375ml bottle .. Hazy gold tan .. Legit foam, good lacing .. . Wet wood, weird yeast, and barnyard .. Plucky mouth feel and a interesting finish .. . Pansy is a good word, wish it was used more frequently

chromeotaphor (148) - NETHERLANDS - APR 29, 2015
Lijkt vrijwel water in de fles! Fris zurig aroma, en ontzettend sprankelend. Cava achtige schuimkraag. Prachtig heldere kleur, net pils! Vrij dun en ¨compact¨ van smaak met een aangename zurigheid. Zoet (suikerig) zurigheid overheerst, citroen/appel/honing achtig. Aangename droogheid in de afdronk. Vrij lekker (dorstlessend) en smaakt naar meer!

Garlic_of_Doom (627) - SWEDEN - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from Beergium. Light yellow with a small white ring of foam. Aroma is slightly tart with green apples, and slight vinegar. Taste is tart with green apples, light bitterness and slight herbal notes. Thin body, mineral water like carbonation, dry. Short and warming after taste.
