Lembeek, the former “city state” situated on a river bend in the Zenne Valley in Belgium, once had 43 spontaneous-fermentation breweries. The beer brewed here was dubbed “Lambic”, derived from the place name “Lembeek”. Brouwerij Boon is Lembeek’s only remaining brewery, dating back to 1680. Owner Frank Boon is heralding a real revival of authentic Lambic and Geuze.
Join Global Beer Network Emily Erler on Wednesday March 14th at 7pm as we taste through Boon's new Vat Sampler pack. These bottles of traditional Oude Geuze combine beer from one specific wooden cask (mono brew) with a very small quantity of young Lambic (blended) that kick off the bottle conditioning process. By using Lambic from specific oak casks, Boon create Geuzes with very unique properties, with wine- or whisky-like flavours, either very dry or very gentle.
This tasting consists of 4 such monoblend geuzes, each with a different taste experience, along with the unblended young Lambic. This will truly be a one of a kind experience limited to 25 people.
