Without question, the
worlds rarest and most unusualsome say
bestbeer is lambic. Singly, in the world of
brewing, no yeast is added to this beer. Rather, a
wild, natural microflora yeast continues to occur in
the Flemish province of Brabant, Belgium. Lambic is
unique in that, the brewing process often takes
several years and the seasoning for the beers very
old fashionfruits and berries rather than hops.
Fresh cherries, raspberries or peaches are added to
an aged lambic, to contribute seasoning, taste, color
and yeast. What hops are used are aged for three
years and added for their preservative qualities.
Lambics are a complex family of beers which include
dry aperitif beers, full bodied dinner beers and
fruity dessert beers.
Lambics are an esoteric
specialty and have an individuality that is beginning
to attract a new generation of beer lovers. They are
it a word, deliciousreally delicious. We are
proud to introduce to our restaurant the fine
selection of Lindemans lambic beers. This

Lindemans Framboise. It doesnt look like a
beer, not with its double-thick bottle sealed with a cork
as well as cap. It certainly doesnt taste like a
beer, not with its champagne like bubbles and intriguing
raspberry flavor. Lindemans Framboise is a dessert
beer, enjoyed in lieu of Coffee at the end of the meal.

process takes more than two years Fred Eckhardt,

finest beer being imported into America. Peche is golden
in color with a nose that fills the room with a bouquet
of fresh peaches.
Kreik ( Blackcherry)
The rose beer that is a
traditional summer brew in Belgium. The color and fruity
palate comes from fresh Schaarbeek blackcherries that
have been macerated in the beer. The fruit addition
brings a tartness and distinctive flavor, somewhere
between fresh cider and sparkling wine.
The mysterious "wild
fermented" wheat beer of Belgium. A bland of
"young" lambic of several months age with
lambics up to three years old. It has a cidery, winery
palate, reminiscent, perhaps of dry vermouth.
