Bottle into a tulip showing moderately filtered light watermelon red and no head. The nose shows pronounced tart notes of brett, hay, and barnyard. The palate is medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Moderately tart with moderately intense notes of tannic cherry and plum with a light vinous bitterness on the finish.

Pour nice purply pink color. No significant distinguishable head. Amazing nose. Notes of oak, horse blanket, layered notes of Pinot grapes that just add an additional layer to the beer. It literally like you and drinking a Pinot noir and a lambic combined together. Low carbonation, punching tartness, oak is less pronounced and the Pinot grapes come into the foreground with good horse blanket. Dry. Great funk and great grape. I think I would have liked the grapes to last a bit longer than they did as they died once and then show up again in the finish. Relatively straight forward lambic but for what it wants to be, it next to nailed it perfectly. Fruit seemed to last a bit longer as I drank more. Yum. Could also use a bit more carbonation as it’s nearly flat.

750 mL bottle. Reddish clear body. Smells of oak, dried grass, wine-like grape. Tastes a little bit of grape and wine, but mostly lambic influences. Oak, a little citrus, kinda bitter and woody in the back. Low carbonation. Excellent lambic without heavy-handed fruit influences.

Bodney Towers bottle share. Thanks to Dan. Hazy peachy red beer, a few pale cream colour bubbles for a head. Palate is light with modest fine carbonation. Light gueuzey sourness into Scweppes bitter lemon. Trace of bitter nuts. Tangy berry fruits. A light dry bitterish finish. Quite tart but quite approachable.

willisread (3948) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 5, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2018 Bottle shared. Thanks Hunter! Pours a strawberry pink color with some ruby highlights and a half finger of foam that dissipates. Classic Tilquin house nose with some gooseberry and mineral notes alongside a nice jolt of wild, young strawberry and plum. As it warms the plum really stands out. Tannic on the palate, with good tartness, earthy mineral notes and more plum. Blueberry skins, red grape skins really stand out. Coating, dry, tannic finish that lingers with wild strawberry and blueberry that lingers. Some light oak in there as well. Just another fantastic beer from Tilquin.
