Right, it's not just americans either, wild ales in general I guess. There are a few other Belgian wild ales out there like Cuvee de Ranke, Struiselensis, Fantome, etc. Wish there were even more. :ale:

 If it's called "lambic-style" though, I don't think anybody has an issue, and to be honest I don't think they really have an issue with American/wild ales in general, just the casual use of the word lambic specifically, based on the strict regional definition.

I question how strict it actually is.  We romanticise it here, but it seems like some belgian producers get away with murder when making "lambic".

Hi, i'm absolutely clueless when it comes to Lambics

Please tell me what they are, what the difference is between Gueze, Lambic, etc., which is more fruity vs. sour


TIA

First of all they're called sours, the opposite of hoppys. Also they are lagered for a long time like ales. The brewer puts sugar and wood chips in a steel tank and the lambic fairy yeast magic takes care of the rest. Usually the brewer lays a used horse blanket over the tank for extra horseblanket flavors. Sometimes an angel appears and plays a harp. Also fruit is reason lambic has flavors, gueuze is unflavored lambic and tastes like plain yogurt.

Matt remembers this:

While reading some reviews on Ratebeer years ago of lambics all kinds of descriptors were used: wet hay, grassy, tart, sour(I'm in at this point).  Then: horseblanket, manure, farm, b.o., feet and the kicker - " . . . a certain female smell."

And this is why it's dangerous to start calling American sours "lambic" or "gueuze"...

Focus on the Beer: Trinity Brewing's Seven Day Sour Vert Gueuze

Quote
"We've also brewed the same exact recipe, but we're aging it on oak for a full year before release and calling it '365 Day Oud Gueuze.' It will be an unblended 'old Gueuze.'"

The irresponsibility of spreading this kind of knowledge as if it were an actual gueuze/lambic is astonishing, especially coming from professional brewers.

Quote
When I say sour, you need to think extreme pucker, the palate of this beer rivals that of our Old Growth! Although '7 Day' will not be aged on oak, I do need to mention we used some super old skool 'Lambic Royal Decree' procedures for this recipe too (Specifically a first and second 'slims' routine). To understand this procedure it's important that I mention our malt bill is built from over 30% Chit, over 30% raw wheat, and less than 60% barley. In this procedure, we do a three step temperature mash, but before the last sachrification step, we collect ~20% of final volume in our kettle and boil it.  Doing so denatures the enzymes in that volume locking in a ton of extra starches and proteins. Wild microbes love wort which is high in proteins and starches, so once again we're completely structuring this recipe to support the production of sour and funky flavors.

Recently i've been doing some casual research about the many closed breweries that used to produce lambic/gueuze in the 20th century.

Here's a current list of closed lambic breweries (over 100). (PM for list)
So I completed a new phase to this list, just added the general dates the breweries were active, and some links to old documents and breweriana to support the existence of each brewery. Kind of messy, but would eventually like to condense and put out a self-produced zine or something as a fun little project someday. Any additions or corrections to the list are encouraged, not sure if anybody is really into it though. Even if it's just a link to an old related article, poster, glass, etc. it would help :thumbup:

"According to the medievalists, this religious community was well-known during the middle ages for its fowl fed on draff and, more specifically, for its dish of stuffed Cureghem capon, which was served with a beer brewed at the abbey and apparently drew pilgrims from all over Europe."

FYI: A capon is a rooster that has been castrated to improve the quality of its flesh for food.  Oh the irony. 

Now this is where they start making shit up:
Yet it was truly a heavenly surprise when the excavations uncovered the cell of the abbot, Father Faro. In the small room the archaeologists found quite a few old reference books, one of which contained the original recipes for the beers brewed at the abbey several hundred years ago. We didn't hesitate for a second and decided on the spot to recreate one of these mythical beers.

Somehow it reads like a tongue-in-cheek jab at the preciousness/reverence of Trappist beers (Westvleteren, etc.) in beer geek culture.

Price? It's slowly trickling out into the states, but if it's even remotely priced like Golden Blend, I'm waiting for the Canadian shipment.

The Intense Red is $15 in VT for a 375. I think the bottle of Golden Blend was $22ish in VT ($30 in MA) so I would expect Intense Red to be in the $20-25 range.

$16.99 at Binny's for Intense Red, while Golden Blend is $26.99 or $27.99 there.

On 14/09/2013, at the occasion of the Zwanze Day, the most of the bars participating will serve other Cantillon beers. Some will serve an "Iris Grand Cru". "Classic" Iris is a pure malt brew, matured for about 2 years in barrels. The beer gets a dry hopping with Saaz before beiing bottled and champagnized. This "Iris Grand Cru" was made in the same philosophy as for a "Lambic Grand Cru Bruocsella". We kept the beer for 3 years in barrels and we didn't made the dry hopping and champagnisation. The "Iris Grand Cru" is less bitter and more dry then the "Iris". The beer is still, very fine, with malted notes and a nice lingering finish. The "Iris Grand Cru" will be served in some of the locations at the occasion of the Zwanze Day, but it is not the Zwanze 2013.

 :shrug: , but I intend to find out.  I love Iris, and I love Bruocsella.  One of the best lambics I've ever had was a Bruocsella bottled in 1996, so hopefully this is awesome.  I'm pretty sure Crooked Stave is one of the bars locations serving it.

How is it? :coffee:

 :shrug: , but I intend to find out.  I love Iris, and I love Bruocsella.  One of the best lambics I've ever had was a Bruocsella bottled in 1996, so hopefully this is awesome.  I'm pretty sure Crooked Stave is one of the bars locations serving it.

I really hope the bottle artwork is cartoon unicorns.  Then it will be perfectly perfect.

Didn't the seller win "beer drinker of the year" a few years ago? :facepalm:

Just got word that Chad opted for a bigger keg of St. Gilloise over a smaller keg of Iris Grand Cru for this weekend.  :kickrock:

Hope we get some Iris GC... debating on going later in the day after the initial goon rush.

Anyway, here's a cool set of photos from a Belgian beer cellar. Cafe Rose Red in Bruges.



O HAI :wub:



From their blog, it sounds like they are the only place in Bruges with Cantillon Gueuze on tap right now...

Zwanze was okay. <_< Iris Grand Cru was good but not worth spending 7 hours to taste 2 oz.
