KRIEK - CHERRY BEER - BELGIUM - NV

A slightly sweet cherry lambic beer made in the traditional Belgian style by the Lindemans family. Lambic beers are fermented using wild yeasts in the air and aged in oak barrels for years to give a sour tart flavour. For this beer, cherries are then added to give the beer a pleasant and full fruity sweetness that offsets the sour base, before a pleasing and refreshing tart finish.

VINEYARD

Located in a strategic location, the brewery was created in order to supply pubs around the neighbouring porphyry quarries so that the numerous workmen, made thirsty by stone working, could come to refresh themselves. Quickly, the sales network has spread to neighboring villages. The time is very different from that of today; lemonade, cola, energy drinks and bottled waters do not exist; the spirits are responsible for the scourge of alcoholism. The beers, on the opposite, are healthy, full of vitamins B1 & B12 with an alcohol content rarely exceeding 3% / vol. Per capita beer consumption in Belgium is then around 240 liters per year.
