Default Lambic tasting

Drie Fonteinen was not in the lineup. It was 20 from Lindemans, Boon,
Hanssens, Cantillon, and De Ranke.


That's really stretching things to call De Ranke Kriek a "lambic."
They don't actually blend a lambic, they buy some from elsewhere and
blend it with their own house-brewed ale and, of course, the
cherries. It's a bit like comparing Reinaert's "Flemish Wild Ale"
to an actual lambic; it has some characteristics that make it similar
to one, but it isn't one, just the same.


I'll pass that along.
