    Anyone ever try these Lambic-in-a-box deals from Belgium in a Box? Are they unblended lambics? They've got Girardin and Oud Beersel Lambics and the Oud Beersel bag in a box is on sale. Rather tempted.

    I've had both of these that a friend hauled back from Belgium on the plane. They were very different from each other, but quite tasty (and unusual!) and I really enjoyed them both. Mind you this was 3 years ago, so who knows what you'll end up with in the current iterations.

    Yes, they're unblended fresh Lambics, flat, no carbonation. Once open you can keep them 1-3 weeks.

    My friend in Germany has some of these. They are unblended and fresh. He is cellaring some to try a blending experiment.

    Wait just a minute here. This actually exists? 10 liters of lambic in a box. 338.14 ounces of lambic in a box?! Whoever's idea this was, I want to have their baby.

    And thanks for the enlightenment. I intend to order one!

    Was generously invited to taste both Girardin bagged varieties last week. Both a unique experience to be sure.

    Oud Beersel's lambic is pretty sulfuric and rough around the edges out of the bag. Girardin on the other hand is generally really good.
