Traditional Lambic beer, produced by the addition of real sour cherries for natural fermentation in young Lambic. Once the cherries have been fully macerated and fermented, the Kriekenlambiek is blended with an older lambic to reach the desired flavour. For each litre of Kriekenlambiek, there are 400g of sour cherries. It is not sweetened; no flavourings or preservatives have been added.
The Brewery Oud Beersel, which started in 1882 is located in Beersel, only 10km from the Brussels city centre in the southwest of the capital. It is one of the last remaining authentic lambic breweries of Belgium and well known for its lambic beer brewed along traditional brewing methods.
