Oudbeitje tasting notes
Hanssens Artisanaal's Oudbeitje is a Fruity Lambic brewed with strawberries. It has a lot of strawberries in the aroma, with some sourness. Taste is sour with some sweet hints from strawberry and hints of wood and a dry strawberry finish.
Fruity Lambic is a variety of Lambic often produced like Gueuze Lambic—by mixin one, two and three year old Lambics in the same bottle. Fruit is added halfway the aging process, so the yeast and the bacteria can ferment all the sugars from the fruit. Most traditional styles of fruit lambic are kriek (with cherries), framboise (with raspberries) and druivenlambik (with muscat grapes). The flavour of the fruit should be evident, coming in hand with a sour flavour. When young, the beer preserves its fruity taste, but when aged the lambic character becames more dominant.
