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.
