Lindemans Kriek Lambic

"In origin, this sweet-acidic drink was obtained by adding fresh black cherries to a barrel Lambic of 6 months young. The addition of fruits provokes a new fermentation in the oak barrels. After another 8 to 12 months, only peels and stones are left and the Kriek-Lambic is ready to be filtered and bottled. The residual sugar can be adjusted with straight-on fruit juice to start a refermentation in the bottle. This traditional type of fruit beer is more acidic and less fruity. Because of the limited availability of the Schaerbeekse cherries and so to brew a less sour and more fruity Lambic beer, Lindemans farm brewery developed a unique alternative natural method using pure cherry juice from unfrozen cherries. This straight cherry juice is blended with selected Lambic of different ages. Kriek has a pink-red color and a delicious taste of sparkling cherry champagne. Serve cold at 36 °F." —brewer
