Fruit Lambic

Fruit Lambic

413 beers | 3.570 Avg Score

A tart and sour, fruity, wheat-based Belgian farmhouse ale that is brewed through spontaneous fermentation from wild yeasts and bacteria with fruit normally added during the aging process. Typical fruits used are framboise (raspberries), kriek (cherries), peche (peach), and cassis (courant) and the beer takes on varying shades of the fruit used. In many of the classic examples, the fruit plays a secondary role in the flavor to the traditional tart, sour, and wild lambic flavors, although there are examples of highly fruited and sweet versions (Lindeman’s and Belle Vue) available.
