I don't seek out this style as sweetened lambic is somewhat of a travesty but Tilquin comes through here.It's sweet while still allowing the good lambic qualities to shine through. One and done though. Nice try while in Belgium.

On tap at Delirium Cafe in Brussels

A-Cloudy, murky, ruddy brown-pretty nasty looking stuff.

S-Hints of funky yeast. Sour upfront with a sweet apple juice end note.

T-Sweet meets gueuze. More sweet than sour. The fruit character here reminds me of apple cider.

M-A little bitterness at end otherwise, just like apple juice.

D-Very drinkable-just like apple juice!

O-A very drinkable faro that big sour fans probably won't care for.

Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation
Look: hazy amber colour with no head
Smell: Sugar, caramel, apple, lemon and some dust.
Taste: Lots of fruits; apple, peach, lemon, melon. Some grass and hidden sourness as well. Very sweet. No bitterness at all.
Mouthfeel: no carbonation, thin mouthfeel
Overall: This is more sugar water, the sourness is there, but doesn't want to come forward...
