Brewer Description: (from lambic.info) Mûre Tilquin (Draught Version) is a blended, fruited lambic created by combining a low alcohol lambic beer called Meerts (from Boon) and one- and two-year old lambics. According to the blendery, it is comprised of 50% meerts and 50% lambic, in order to keep the ABV down. No 3-year-old lambic is in the draught version. The final fruit concentration is at least 350g/l of blackberries and it is typically 4.8% ABV.

Intro: A 250ml draft pour at Moeder Lambic Fontainas into a Tilquin gueuze glass.
Appearance: A bronze copper colour with a tinge of red, and a thin off white head that left sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Funky, lots of funk, barnyard and blackberry.
Taste: Creamy, sour, tart, blackberry and hints of lemon.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Very nice creamy fruitiness. Very balanced and easy to drink. I enjoyed this more than the bottled version.
