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.

From bottles, at the brewery. Hazy orange-amber with the impression of a pinkish hue. Nose of plum liquor, lemons, grapefruits and must. Sparkling and tart, floral and juicy, with the suggestion of red-grapeskin tannin. Finishes dry. That perfumed impression of fine plum schnapps is pleasant and stands throughout. Superb piece of work, an interesting and somewhat intense drinking experience.

375 ml corked and caged bottle, label says 2014 2015 on it, best before 03/02/2025. Served in a Prairie Artisan Ales lambic glass (tumbler style), the beer pours a slightly hazy amber color with almost an inch off-white head. Head retention is good, and there’s not much lacing at all. The brew smells like plums, funk, earthiness, and vinegar. I could really smell the plum fruitiness as soon as I opened the bottle. Taste is similar to the aroma wtih plum, funk, vinegar, lemon, floralness, white grape and grainy flavors. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s easy to drink with a low/moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was a pretty good fruited lambic, this is definitely worth buying if you come across a bottle. $15.99 a bottle.

Auf der Biermesse in BXL gekostet. Trübes Gold im Glas. Intensive Säure in der Nase. Von Pflaume leider nichts zu schmecken.

Bottled 2015-2016. Pours purple peach color, small white head. The smell is gueuze alike, raisins, plums. Great tartness, fruity side that plums bring are very well achieved. A great fruity lambic blend.
