This week’s Microbrew Monday selections are ambic beers, straight from Belgium—a perfect beer style to pair with your Thanksgiving dinner! Unlike conventional ales & lagers, which are fermented by carefully cultivated strains of brewer’s yeasts, lambic beer is produced by spontaneous fermentation from the wild yeasts and bacteria that are native to the Senne Valley in Belgium. This unusual process gives the beer a distinct vinous, cidery flavor. Stop into any one of our three locations this Monday, November 21st from 5-7PM to sample any four of these craft beers.
Samuel Adams Cranberry Lambic- Brewed with fresh cranberries, this lambic beer has rich fruity flavors of, bananas, cloves, nutmeg and, of course, cranberries.
Liefman’s Kriek- This Belgian-style Kriek lambic has a great balance of cherry flavor with a hint of sourness.
Lindeman’s Framboise- Offering a magnificently sweet aroma, this brew has a delicate palate of raspberries with undertones of fruity acidity.
Lindeman’s Peche- The crisp sparkling of this beer offers a brilliant aroma of peaches and refreshing balance of fruit and acidity.
Lindeman’s Pomme- The bright aroma and flavor of real apples melds with the complex tartness of this lambic for smooth drinking.
