Lantern is proud to be serving at our 6th Belgian Fest! Here’s what we’ll be pouring, come see us:
Orondo Furioso, Apricot Tripel (10.9% a/v) We stuffed whole, fresh apricots from Orondo, WA into oak barrels, then doused them with our Abbey-style Tripel, enabling a second fermentation and long conditioning on oak. You’ll find the aroma and flavor of whole apricots against a background of wood and spice, with a tart finish.
Gyrophare [1st Session], Tart Cherry Saison (6.2% a/v) We loaded whole, fresh Washington Montmorency tart cherries into oak wine barrels and extracted all the sweet and sour goodness through a second fermentation on our rustic wheat and barley ale base. It is aromatic, colored rosé red, and spins through 360° of flavor from the cherries (fruit, skin, and pit), finishing with a balanced and lightly sour touch.
Cabaret Sauvage, Ale with Wine Grapes (7.8% a/v) A hybrid wine-ale, we re-fermented a dark ale base in oak puncheons for 14 months with whole, fresh Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes from the Yakima Valley. Enticingly burgundy-hued, with a complex, vinous aroma, it expresses raisin, fruit-skin-spice, port-like, oaky, and floral flavors, culminating in a delightfully dry and clean finish.
Voyageur, Two-Year Double Pale Ale (7.7% a/v) In 2016 we barreled a freshly brewed double pale ale, and sent it on a (figurative) voyage in oak vessels. After a 2 ½ year trip, the body gained tartness and acidity that complements the citrusy hop, becoming even more aromatic and flavorful with notes of oak, vanilla, sugarcane, dried stone fruit, and whiskey-like caramel.
Sombre 2018, Abbey-style Quadrupel (11.4% a/v) Aged in oak wine and brandy barrels for over a year and emerging dark and robust, this "double Dubbel," opens with a lightly spirituous aromatic note, proceeds to dark caramel, bittersweet chocolate, wood, and spice flavors, and finishes each sip with gentle alcoholic warmth.
