Style: Lambic - Fruit

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
HaandBic is our first beer in the style of a fruit lambic with added red currents and cranberries. We have naturally also added a lambic style yeast blend including bacteria and yeast of different types. Then this concoction has been aged in oak barrels for almost 18 months. The beer gets its tartness from both berries and the concoction we added. It will mostcertainly develop further given time.

16 IBU, 20 EBC
Fermented with several different yeasts and bacteria. Serving temp 8 - 10C or 46 - 50F.

Very earthy. Sort of a Flanders type thing. Not digging it much.

2010 vintage

A-Pours an opaque, dull copper color. Nearly no head. A very lazy initial bubble up, then nothing.

S-Aroma is well integrated and pleasantly tart. Fruitiness and semi-sour berry notes. Very lightly oaky.

T-You can tell it had some age in it. All the flavors have meshed together. A tart fruitiness dominates the flavor. Cranberries and currants added bring forth a lot of genuine sour berry flavors. Hints of oak. Finishes sweet.

M-Flatter. Has some body to it. No noticeable booze.

O/D-I think the age really did this brew some favors. Well integrated flavors. Tasty tartness. Underrated.
