"BZART KRIEKENLAMBIEK originates from the merger of two glorious traditions, i.e. the ‘Méthode Traditionnelle’ (traditional method) for sparkling wines and the spontaneous fermentation for Lambic beers. The result is a natural, sparkling cherry lambic of Belgian origin. Traditional Kriekenlambiek is a spontaneous fermentation beer: Sour cherries are added to the Lambic beer which is the oldest of the still existing Belgian beers that probably originated around the year 1300. The “Kriekenlambiek Oud Beersel” which serves as a basis for the BZART Kriekenlambiek contains 400 g of cherries per litre undergoing fermentation in Lambic beer for six months. This kriekenambiek is then bottled by adding the “liqueur de tirage” (tirage liqueur) consisting of sparkling wine yeast and sugar for the second fermentation. The beer then ages in bottles for at least nine months before its final maturation according to the “Méthode Traditionnelle”.
