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.

Bottle at Foundry, Northampton, MA. Very reasonable price and purchase for the NosBawz birthday. Notes taken during consumption.

A- Black but not pitch brew falls out of the 750ml into several small chalices. Dark brown hues can bee seen at the edges. Light nutty-tan, foamy well-lived cap. Thick pillow of lace with spotty patches around it.

S- Lactic acid bacteria and toasted to charred darkened grains. Sour stone fruit comes to mind, underripe mango or something. Wet degraded oak. Lemon. Hint of cocoa.

T- Slight band aid added to the above but just a tiny bit of that Brett feel as well as horsey must. Lemons, tart underripe stone fruits, plum, raisin, fig jam, toasted nuts and slight cocoa. Fairly sour and the centerpiece is still the lactic acid bacteria ferment.

MF- Foamy light body and very dried out. Sour finish after a very high foamy carbonation delivers the brew.

Interesting. I like how the stout quality is fairly laid back preventing any clashing, and it can be easy in dark sours. Solid lactic sourness and some oaky musty vinous funk.

Bottle sampled at a tasting. Dark brown pour with a modest tan head. Smells funky lambic, with notes of cocoa. Tastes like vinegar, cherries, apple cider. Medium body with a high carbonation and a light sour aftertaste.

Slightly hazy dark brown pour with beige head. Aroma has some roasted notes and cacao with farmhouse lambic notes. Taste is sour, funky and roasty. Medium body with high carbonation. Interesting but not something really special.
