Lindemans Lambic Beer – Great Belgian “Holiday” beers

Lindemans makes fun Framboise (raspberry) and Pomme (apple) Lambic beers that are perfect for the holidays. The Framboise is bright red and develops a nice head. The beer is easy to knock back and has only a touch of alcohol. The raspberry Framboise fruity and straightforward. There is no question that this is a fruit beer. The apple “Pomme” Lambic is more like a cider, except that it is not as sweet. There is just a hint of a kick at the end. Neither of these beers have enough alcohol for me to feel anything. So, don’t expect to get a buzz.

A lambic beer is brewed using wild yeast and spontaneious fermentation. They are unique to certain areas of Belgium where the particular strains of yeast are naturally found. Expect a slightly different taste for any lambic beer. But the fruit taste in these two beers overwhelmed the unique lambic beer taste. Try an Orval for a real wild yeast-flavored beer. It is a unique taste.

These beers are widely available both separately and in multi-packs with special pilsner glasses.
