COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unlike conventional ales and lagers, which are fermented by carefully cultivated strains of brewer’s yeasts, our award winning lambic beer is instead produced by exposing it to the wild yeasts and bacterias that are native to the Senne Valley, of Brussels, Belgium. It is this unusual process involving over a year of fermentation which gives this beer its distinctive flavor: DRY, VINOUS, and CIDERY, with a crisp sour aftertaste.

RGDave (113) - Lebanon, New Jersey, USA - SEP 16, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours reddish golden, little head. Nice sour aroma, big sour attack! Slight carbonation, nicely built in to lighten the sourness. Oak comes through towards the end with a nice lingering sour close. Nice beer, could use a little less sourness or more flavor to balance.

illidurit (2243) - San Francisco, California, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Bottle shared at Collected Works tasting. Nice authentic lambic aroma. Pretty lactic and horsey and lemony, bordering on gueuze in terms of the nose. Flavor has some pervasive grape juice sweetness, like Welch’s. Solid acidity but the grapiness is too forward.
