A fruity take on traditional Lambic.

Pom Lam

Shipping calculated at checkout.

We've long been obsessed with the way Lambic producers layer acid, tannin and bitterness in their beverages. We love drinking these so much, that we tried to recreate one using fruit. 

Pom Lam is a collaboration with Richard Preiss of Escarpment Labs. First, we aged hops oxidatively for 6 years in the rafters of the cidery.

Then we boiled those hops in pear juice for 4 hours, on a school night no less. We put this bitter, tannic pear juice into a barrel of mixed fermentation beer Richard made and let it rest for 8 months.

Finally, we blended that barrel with Zweigelt and Blaufränkish and bottle conditioned for another 11 months before release.

What's it like? For something that took the better part of a decade to make, it's really really good (thank god). It smells just like funky Lambic, but also like grapefruit pith, peaches and the soft pineapple of aged hops.

Pithy citrus and hop bitterness continue in the flavour, with added body from wine and oak. We recommend drinking within the year after purchase, but it will continue develop after that. Choose your adventure (or better yet, just grab two).

8.8% ABV | 750mL

Canada's best beer/cider hybrid ever?

Exceptional. As a long time lover of all things lambic as well as Revel's offerings, I was obviously excited when I heard about this release. I attempted to talk myself down, not wanting to have unreasonable expectations. I (sadly) convinced myself to only order 4 btls instead of the 6 I initially added to my cart. I couldn't help but immediately chill a btl the day the box arrived here in BC. I could tell as soon as I poured a glass and the aroma wafted up that this was something special. The flavour description from Revel is spot on. One of the best things I've drank in the past several years. Funk, aged hop bitterness, tannic perry. It is sublime. Don't sleep on this.

Thanks so much Alex! So glad you got to try this one. We were patiently holding our breath to see how Pom Lam would turn out, and we're all shocked by how much we love it. Thanks again for all your support.
