Lambic - Traditional

A spontaneously fermented and unblended ale that is indigenous to the Senne Valley of Belgium. A large portion of wheat results in crispness, although the flavor is dominated with a unique tartness from the wild yeast and bacteria that inoculate the brew by traveling through the air and through tainted barrels used during fermentation. Pale yellow to deep golden in color, the color tends to darken with age. Younger versions are often cloudy, while older ones are generally clear. The white-colored head generally has poor retention. Light bodied with little hop flavor or bitterness, Lambic's tartness resembles hard cider or white wine. Aging before consumption ensures that the tartness has mellowed.

ABV: 5.0-6.5% | IBU: 0-10 | Glassware: Tulip
