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...

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.
