The Lambic Beer Kriek
This Lambic beer Kriek it’s re-fermented in the presence of sour cherries and with secondary fermentation in the bottle results in Kriek.
Spontaneous fermentation is carried out without the controlled addition of yeast to the wort.
It happens naturally, thanks to the micro-organisms in the air. This exceptional brewing method, which is the oldest in the world, has been developed in our region from time immemorial. This natural technique requires patience and a unique know-how that we have mastered at the brewery here for almost 200 years.
Lambic beer and Fruit
Lambic with the addition of raspberry (framboise), peach (pêche), blackcurrant (cassis), grape (druif), or strawberry (aardbei), as either whole fruit or syrup. Other, rarer fruit lambic flavorings include apple (pomme), banana (banane), pineapple (ananas), apricot (abricot), plum (prune), cloudberry (plaquebière), lemon (citron), and blueberry (myrtille). Fruit lambics are usually bottled with secondary fermentation. Although fruit lambics are among the most famous Belgian fruit beers, the use of names such as kriek, framboise or frambozen, cassis, etc.
About the Lambic Beer Kriek
More than 35 years ago, Lindemans reinvented Beer Kriek. It was a smash hit!
In 1985, Michael Jackson (the most famous beer expert of our time) proclaimed Kriek Lindemans one of the five best beers of the world.
Like other Lindemans beers, this filtered beer kriek is made from a lambic base. The difference, however, lies in the maceration of 25% filtrate of fresh sour cherries before the beer is filtered and pasteurised.
ALCOHOL (ALCOHOL CONTENT): 3.5 %
COLOUR: Red, slightly cloudy
CALORIES: 53 kcal (100 ml)

Due to the use of filtrate and pasteurization, this Kriek beer is sweeter and fruitier than Old Kriek Cuvée René, which undergoes a second fermentation process in the bottle. Thanks to its innovative flavour, it was a resounding success both here in Belgium as well as around the world. Nowadays, it is undoubtedly the reference Kriek beer for consumers.
