Timmermans Tradition Kriek Lambic (375ml Bottle)
Pours a bright red-pink with a rosy pink-white head and little carbonation. It has a very sweet aroma and an incredibly sweet cherry flavour, with no sourness whatsoever and only a slight hint of wheat in the finish. A good lambic.
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.
