Lambic is Belgium’s most distinctive beer. Its production relies on an ancient method of spontaneous fermentation where it is exposed to the wild yeasts and bacteria that are said to be native to the Zenne Valley, in which Brussels lies. This unusual brewing process produces a beer with a distinct flavor which is vinous, fruity, musty, acetic and lactic all at once. This marriage between beer and wine has survived unscathed throughout several recent brewing revolutions and innovations. Lambic is a brew that is both years in the making and centuries old in design. Simply put, Lambic is beer in its most natural state.
Traditionally brewed Lambic is served un-carbonated from a cask in its most pristine form, and is truly an acquired taste. Gueze and fruit Lambic are both formulations of straight Lambic that offer something a little more tame and familiar to beer enthusiasts who can’t quite wrap their palate around the unaltered originals.
Today, Oud Beersel’s Lambic beers are still produced using traditional methods such as spontaneous fermentation, maturation in wooden barrels and the mixing of various Lambic casks and vintages. This allows Oud Beersel to offer authentic products that are of the highest quality to consumers.
