COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Tilquin Faro is a traditionnal faro made from the blending of 50% Meerts lambic (brewed by Boon), and 50% of a blend of 1 year old lambics (from Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon), with a small amount of liquid candy sugar. It is flat and not refermented. It doesn’t exist on bottle, only on cask. It is only served fresh on festivals and opendoors and sometimes sold to local bars.

cask at tilquin during toer de gueuze
pale amber-blonde, thin white lacing. largely flat with the merest whisper of carbonation. Rather sweet, cool, lightly tart and refreshing. a good palate cleanser after the assault on the pinot barrel.

Draft - Sweet dark sugar and funk. Cloudy gold with no head. Sweet and funky with a dry finish. Not bad, but just average for the style.
