Storm 18 Year Old Lambic (Cellared 1+ more years) – Storm Brewing

From Storm Brewing in Vancouver comes their “Storm 18 Year Old Lambic” a beer released originally in 1997.  James found more bottles he had lost and released them on Feb 2015.  I aged the bottle until November 2016 when I waited for the right time to open it.  So this beer is now 19 Years old.  The beer pours a very cloudy deep orange with basically no head.  The aroma consists of lemon, stone fruits, tartness, vinegar and just more fruit notes.  The flavour is very puckering tart up front almost like biting into a lemon with cherries, maybe currents, berries, vinegar with lots of woody notes.  There is some definite sweetness but it is by far overtaken by the tartness.  The alcohol content comes in at 7%.  While this beer has become exceedingly tart and has a big vinegar component it tastes amazing and I am happy that I was able to pick up a bottle when I did.
