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’.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Bottle with a best before of 29/01/2023. Pours with very low carbonation, no real head formation. Deep strawberry hued body with medium-low clarity. Aromas are of plums, jammy, medium vinous, wet wood, rhubarb pie, mild brett, earthy, musty. Very fruit forward, mild skin tannins. Flavors are very tannic, huge jammy fruit, plum, light baby food. Acidity is medium and about as strong as the tannins. Medium funk, wet hay. Juicy. Low carbonation. Mild cheesiness. Lots of tannin, thicker body for a lambic. Could use quite a bit more carbonation to help with brightness and carbonic acid. Good, but I’d take the gueuze over this any day of the week.

Zlotta (2605) - Hagen, GERMANY - FEB 3, 2017
0.375 l bottle from ’Firma Bier’, bottled in February 2014, three years old. Slightly hazy, reddish amber with a thin, soapy, quickly diminishing, white layer. Sourish, fruity and quite funky aroma of rhubarb, plums, oak, vinegar, barnyard and a touch of vanilla. Very sour, moderately fruity and slightly funky taste of rhubarb, lemon, vinegar, plums and oak, followed by a rather long, very tart and super-dry finish. Medium body, very astringent, dry and slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Quite nice, but a bit out of balance. A bit too much vinegar, too sour as well, lacks complexity, appears a bit simple.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Aroma - wild potent yeast, wheat, and farms funk. Appearance - the body is a cloudy mahogany orange. The head is minimal, a small white that rings out. Taste - is sour, there is plenty of funk, and sweaty farmhouse nature. The fruit is difficult to discern. There is that wild yeast potency, that offers a unique sort of power that almost defies description. There is a little woody note as well. Palate - the body is medium, the carbonation is average, the finish is dry funky and sour.

asheft (3047) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2016
[Bottle] Burnt match sulfur aroma with sour prune and woody white grape. Hazy orange-yellow under a white collar. Refreshingly sour plum flavour with pickle juice and burnt match sulfur. The plum is not over the top. Light body, mouth puckering, moderate carbonation.

heisenberg1992 (2) - rovato, ITALY - DEC 8, 2016 does not count
Colore ambrato scarico appena violaceo, con una schiuma bianca effervescente che decade rapidamente. Al naso note erbacee, citriche, selvatiche e legnose. Gusto aspro, secco e ma con una punta dolciastra donata dalle fermentazione con le prugne. Al palato molto equilibrata con note legnose dovute alla fermentazione in botte e di frutta fermentata. Finale delicatamente astringente.
