Note – Lambic is a special beer that is made in Belgium that is fairly well available here. Once the beer has finished fermenting sour cherries are added and the beer undergoes a second fermentation. The cherries add colour, some sweetness and also a sourness that makes the beer quite complex and delicious. It comes in small champagne bottles complete with a cork. Lindemans is probably the most widely available here but other brands include Morte Subite, Timmermans and Bellevue. Other flavours include Framboise (raspberry) casis and peach.
