BZART LAMBIEK MILLESIME (2016)  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u

It's a Lambic beer that is then matured with champagne yeast that results in a brew that is a merger of the two brewing processes, from Oud Beersel, with an ABV of 7.0%. New brew for me.

Pours a crystal clear golden blonde with a good sized fizzy bubbly head.
This dissipates fairly quickly but a strong residual lasts throughout, and some lacing is also produced.

Acidic, sharp, fresh, crisp herby, yeasty funky aroma.

It's thinnish bodied, and extremely effervescent ( right to the last drop ) with a champagne mouthfeel and texture. At its coldest its fresh, crisp, sharp, acidic, zesty, sparkling, citric, and absolutely bone dry. As it warms it becomes a little fuller bodied and very smooth and mellow; however there's still plenty of sour, funky, barnyard, yeast, vinegar, and citric fruits, with plenty of puckering. If you like Lambics then you should really enjoy this brew! It's exactly like a champagne lambic! Great stuff indeed!

Sounds wonderful Viv! Might be a nice one to celebrate New Year's eve with.   :smileysdrinkingbeer:

Hi Viv,
This indeed sounds like an amazing beer to me too!!!
I was wondering which lambic they use? Young, or old, or maybe both of them?
Do they add a bit of sugar when adding the Champagne yeast inside the bottle? (similar to Champagne)
Anyway, what a great looking beer wonder, very suitable - as said by John - for festivity periods  t_u

Hi John,

Oh dear! I've already finished the bottle!

And I don't have any more bottles of this excellent brew...

But I do have a number of others that will be most suitable!




Hi Filip,

It's the Oud Beersel Lambiek ( ie unblended ) which is used
as the base beer.

And yes, they do add some sugar along with the yeast for the
second fermentation in the bottle.
