Lambics are truly the “wines” of the beer world. With wine one speaks of “gout de Terroir” because the land so influences a wine’s flavor. With Lambics, one must speak of “gout de Tonneau SM“ because each cask (tonneau) produces a lambic that matures and tastes different. Blending these Tonneau is such an art that there exist independent Geuzestekkerij (blenders) who buy young Lambic then age and bottle it under their own name.

Lambickx™ is Vanberg & Famille’s brand of hand-selected and blended lambics. Every Lambic with the Lambickx™ name is made from casks personally tasted and chosen by Don Feinberg, one of the first importers of Belgian beer to America and founder of the first Belgian-only brewery in the U.S. Don chooses his Lambics for their complexity, brilliance and drinking excellence both by themselves and as exquisite accompaniments to food.

"i thought this was cool. light and efervescent, yet complex and tasty. Teaish and lambic, but not like any tea i’ve ever had. a unique creation i’d get again if it were cheaper and available."

hopscotch (9493) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Bottle... Mostly-clear golden pour with no head. The musty, funky, fruity bouquet is an interacting collection of aged cheese, oak, lemon, aged hops, mild barnyard funk and whispers of fresh apricot and pluot. Medium-bodied with no more than trace carbonation. The flavor is tart, but more focused on funkiness and balance than sharp acidity. Nice earthiness and fuzzy stone fruits flanked by stale hops. Lengthy, tangy, dry finish. Bottle courtesy of 50belair!
