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 (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 was made with ’Prune de Namur’ and limited to 500 bottles.

Second batch (2013) limited to 5000 * 75cl and 10000 * 37,5cl was made with ’Quetsche véritable d’Alsace’.

'15 '16 vintage bottle regular Quetsche. Chilled 1 hour prior to serving. The cork pops open with an ever so slight wiss. The nose fills with salivating ripe peaches, some breadyness reminiscent of freshly baked sourdough. Juicy overripe prunes, slight citrus note. Lot's of old lambiek funk. "Neig" slightly lemon puckering sourness.

From notes. Pour at Zwanze Day 2017 at Jolly Pumpkin on September 23. The pour is a darker reddish golden color with a nice thick white head that fizzles away to nothing with only a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty good. There is a nice jammy plum right up front with a strong funk and a slightly tart plum skin. There is a light yeastiness to it and a good fruit on the back end. The flavor is fruity and funky with a nice tartness and a light yeast. There is a juiciness about it that balances nicely with a very sharp finish. This is interesting. There is more acidity on the back end. The mouth feel is lighter medium bodied and sharply carbonated with a lingering acid heavy fruit to it. It’s really interesting, but it’s just not my thing. 7 4 7 4 15

Fles thuis geprobeerd. Het is een donker not oranje geel bier, geen schuim. Het heeft een zure fruitige smaak, met hints van pruim.

ottima lambic, color giallo schiuma minima. al naso acidula, tart, mela acerba, punta fruttata. bene al palato dove l'acidità è ben marcata, funk, sentori del legno, di frutta acerba. carbonazione bassa, corpo medio.

Rocznik 2016/2017: Piwo metne w kolorze grejpfrutowym nalewa sie prawie bez piany. W aromacie dzikie nuty ze stajni, kwasne cytrusy, sliwka i beczka. W smaku procz kwasnosci jest tez lekki posmak slodkiej sliwki. Czuc tez kwasny agrest i czarne porzeczki. Wysycenie na srednim poziomie bez goryczki, alkohol niewyczuwalny.

Aus der Flasche (bbe 2026-01-19) mit Alsace Pflaumen im Muted Horn Berlin 2017-08 getrunken. Das ist so ein perfektes Lambic, das es fast schon wieder langweilig wirkt. Fluch und Segen zugleich. Leider hätte ich mir ein deutliches Pflaumenaroma gewünscht. So war hier leider nur eine nicht definierbare Fruchtsäure erkennbar.
