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’.

This beauty has eclipsed even Supplication as my favorite sour beer of all time. Just an amazing soft and succulent complex fruitiness (thanks to judicious use of plums) that complements a powerful tartness with plenty of the requisite horse blanket and barnyard funk. A marvelous paradox of raw power and sophistication.

Sour sweet aroma of blood orange, grapefruit & prunes. Cloudy blood orange with no head. Intense sour taste with a mild sweet touch. Medium body, sticky texture & soft carbonation.
