What Lambic for what fruit?

    Yeah couldn't figure out a good title.

    Does anyone know the answer to this? Each fruit that is added to a base Lambic has a different acidity, sugar level ,etc. So does it stand to reason that the Lambic (which is probably a blend of more than one cask) will be blended to compliment the fruit? And if that's true would that play into the question of aging a fruit Lambic? That once the fruit goes away some of the base Lambic might be more/less acidic/funky?

    I'm saving all your quotations in a scrapbook Thijs. On the day you say, "this sour isn't that bad at all," I'm going to give it to you. Remember what you used to think about imperial stouts... ;)

    That's an interesting question. Are there any professional blenders on BA who could chime in?
