On tap at Fountain Porter, Philly.

I was glad to see this on tap, because the price tag has always prevented me from picking up a bottle. I'm not much of a "sour stout" fan, but fortunately this truly was more of a "dark lambic" than a sour stout. Half pint pour, dark brown-black with low carb and basically no head. Good mix of lambic funk and roasty malts in the nose. Again, I was expecting a sour stout, but this actually just came off more like a mildly roasty lambic. And despite being only 1/8 lambic, that was the character that came out the most for me in this beer. So it was not really what I expected, but in a good way. I still don't think I'd pay $30+ for a bottle, and I'm not sure how something like this would age, but I'm definitely glad I got to try it.

Tasted in a 12 oz snifter from draft at Consume on August 26, 2017. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, this beer is refermented for six months in the bottle. Recommended.

Poured at the Brussels Beer Fest in August 2017. Look is very dark brown, bordering black. Nose is lambic and a smoky roasted malt. Amazing considering the combination. I am also getting barbecue sauce and smoke. Taste is more lambic than expected from nose. Not too sour, and the roasted notes really balance it out. Mouthfeel is medium and nice.

Got this on a trip to Ghent this past May. Brought it back to Canada to share with the crew.

From a 75cl into a tasting glass.
Vintage: 2014 / 2015

APPEARANCE: Pours out thin brown and yields a big, foamy, off-white head with decent retention. Head fades to a full wisp. Murky brown body with no real carbonation evident. A faint wisp remains until the end leaving dots of lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Lambic dominates here, obviously. Aromas of hay, barnyard and some wet grassy character as well. Notes of the stout are there, with some chocolate, butterscotch and light cream aromas too, but the lambic is definitely more dominant.

TASTE: Hay, barnyard, citrus flavors and some obvious sourness at the swallow. A lingering finish of hay, grass, sour lemon, funky flavors and a touch of roasted malt works nicely. Flavorful, interesting and enjoyable; not acidic at all.

PALATE: Light on the palate with higher levels of carbonation. Creamy, goes down fine and finishes slightly puckering.

OVERALL: This was really good. It’s definitely more lambic than it is stout, but that’s certainly to be expected here. The lambic qualities were very enjoyable and the lack of acidity was appreciated. There is certainly some stout character in there if you pay attention, which makes it a fun drink. This was a big hit at the party and is something I’d enjoy having again. Worth checking out if you like this style of beer. Cheers!

Highly carbed. Nose of roasted malts and signature Tilquin lambic notes. Palate of roasted malts, light roasted coffee, lemon, oak. Actually quite good; pleasantly surprised at how well the blend works with just 1/8 young lambic. At the price point would probably prefer straight Tilquin on most occasions, but this is a nice change, and definitely worth trying at least once.
