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’.

NYE bottle. Refreshing, crisp, with quite high acidity, funk is on an average level. Wet leather, unripe green fruits. Very good.

Garlic_of_Doom (663) - SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2017
Bottle. Hazy orange with a minimal white head. Aroma is fresh, tart, dry, distinct plums, a bit funky. Taste is fresh and tart with light frutiness, lemon and some wood. Light body, high spritzy carbonation, dry mouth feel. Short after taste.

Samuel214 (1569) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 18, 2017
Flaska från SB. Vintage 2016/17. Snyggt orangerosa/persikofärgad, knappt något skum. Syrligt med toner av persika, stenfrukt, tropisk frukt, plommon, vinäger, citronjuice och stall. Denna batch näst intill slät kropp, väldigt låg kolsyra. Ska bli intressant att jämföra med äldre flaska.

Emelie (236) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2017
Lätt grumlig, rosa orange i färgen. Doft: fruktig, lite kryddig aningen åt apelsin med nejlikor i, plommon. Smak: citron, lite plommon, lite lite kolsyra, lite stenig, torr,

Light to medium body, soft to average carbonation. Round and not rough. Very fruity and funky, but with just a hint of plum. Overall: great, elegant lambic.

DutchDrebus (6322) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2017
Bottle @ home. Hazy peachy to red colour with no head. Smells fruity, red fruits, yoghurt, sour, dusty. Tastes sour, red fruits, yoghurt, cherries. No carbo, medium body.

piwnepodroze (541) - POLAND - DEC 7, 2017
To gueze z dodatkiem śliwek. Same śliwki może jakoś się tu nie wybijają, ale piwo jest potężnie owocowe, rześkie i świeże. Zdaje się aspirować do miana najbardziej pijalnego piwa z niedawno pitych lambiczi, a mimo to jest bardzo kwaśny. Nut funky jest tu nieco mniej, ale i tak nietrudno je zauważyć. Super sprawa.
