This dark, spontaneous beer is a cousin of Lambic. Inoculated by the nighttime air and ripened for 2 years in oak, it is tart, wine-like, and fruity.

The Duivelsbier style was popular in the 1800’s and produced in the city of Halle in Belgium’s lambic country. The very last producer of the style, Van Der Linden, vanished 20 years ago. This may very well be the only beer of its kind in the world today!

Bottle from the brewery in Brooklyn. Pours a muddy dark amber/auburn, flash of light tan head, minimal lacing; smell is funky sour grapes, jammy red wine, red currant, sour cherry, sour raspberry hard candy, fruit leather, oak; taste is funky sour plum flesh, plum skin, red currant jam, oak, raw honey, funky apple cider and apple flesh become more prominent as it warms, hints of mulch and tannins, apple/apple cider lingers on the palate; feel is light and bright, medium acidity, dry finish. Sour, fruity, and funky, with nice apple character on the finish.
