Cantillon Kriek ( cherry ) (375ml Bottle)

Cantillon Kriek ( cherry ) 375ml Bottle

Description

Cantillon is the brewer of Belgium's most authentic lambic. This kriek 100% lambic is blended lambic beer brewed with cherries.

Tasting Notes

Pours with a lush, reddish body, and a frothy, pink head. The aromatics are largely of acidic dried cherries, along with a delicious balance of fruit, cheese rind, wet leather and mustard greens. The taste is also sour and sharp. The subdued cherry blends well with the tart, base. Authentic and complex. Finishes puckeringly, with a fading cherry wave.

Lambic Style - Fruit

Lambics are wheat beers made with stale hops and fermented with wild yeasts and other microorganisms, traditionally only on the Senne Valley in and around Brussels. The most traditional of the fruit lambics are kriek (cherry) and framboise (raspberry). In modern times, peaches (peche), blackcurrants (cassis), grapes, as well as more exotic fruits are used. Traditional lambics are commonly denoted by the term "oud", which is a reference to "old-style", and these are the most sour. More commonly, though, lambics are sweetened to cut the intense acidity. Serve with sharp cheeses or pickled dishes, or use in the preparation of mussels.
