Beer of the Moment – Oude Quetsche Tilquin á L’Ancienne

Beer of the Moment – the beers that have been amazing, incredible and absolutely should be ‘must try’ beers on your list. In short, beers that I have LOVED …


Due to my poor set up of my blog, my ‘Beer of the Moment’ section was always written over and replaced so I’ve fixed that now and perhaps I’ll try to update this more than once a year!

Here’s the last post I did on this heading –

On a stinking hot day or when you just feel like being refreshed it is hard to go past something a little on the tart side. Hello Oude Quetsche Tilquin á L’Ancienne for it’s perfectly refreshing, gorgeous complexity and stunning appearance.

Oude Quetsche Tilquin á L’Ancienne comes from the Gueuzerie Tilquin brewery in Belgium, it is a blend of one and two year old lambics and is spontaneously fermented with purple plums.

The result is nothing short of amazing, holding a glass of it always leaves me thinking about that Tim Tam commercial where the girl wishes for a never ending pack of Tim Tams. I’d love my glass of Quetsche Tilquin to do the same.

Aromas of plum, apricot, pear and funk. The flavour is slightly tart, nothing too confronting with dried fruitiness and rounded acidity.

Seriously stunning.
