Kriek Lambicus by Timmermans Brewery

Lambic, 4%

A fruited Lambic beer with the addition of cherries. Produced in the same manner as the Framboise and Strawberry, the Kriek has a sweet aroma of cherries and almonds. The flavour is sweet with hints of acidity alongside the sweet cherries. Highly-carbonated and dry, with a refreshingly tart finish. This is lambic done right!

The Story

Based in Itterbeek, Belgium, Timmermans Brewery have been creating some of the worlds best beers for well over 300 years.

Founded in 1702, Timmermans have made a name for themselves for producing some of the best Lambic beers on the planet and in turn, have played a huge role in upholding the traditional brewing styles that have made their nation the brewing powerhouse it is today.

Lambic beer has been around since the 13th century and continues to be brewed exclusively in the Zenne valley. It is the only beer type with a registered designation of origin and must be brewed in accordance with legal standards.

The beer itself is prepared with 70% malt, 30% wheat and aged hops. It’s produced by means of spontaneous fermentation, bringing the wort into contact with the wild yeasts present in the air. The distinctive flavour is produced through cereals used in the brewing process (wheat and barley) coming into contact with the microorganisms present in the Zenne valley which brings about fermentation. The results of this are usually a dry and vinous beer, often with a tart, sour aftertaste.
