SOLD OUT Bokkereyder 101% Lambic Tasting – Thursday, August 23rd

A special lambic exploration tasting with Raf Souvereyns.


Lambic beers have a sense of place unlike any other beer style.  Although the breweries are located in the same Pajottenland area, every brewery houses its own mix of native yeasts and bacteria, freely flowing through the air and falling down in the wort during its overnight exposure to the air in the coolship.  In this tasting, we’re going to explore four different lambics and four different gueuze blends.

First, we’ll taste four lambics side by side to discover the different aromas, flavors, and characteristics.  Then we’ll taste four gueuze blends made with the same lambics.  Each gueuze blend has 50% of one lambic and equal proportions of the other lambics.  Through this tasting, we can discover how the different lambics develop together in the bottle. Every participant gets eight glasses (7 cl each) so we can compare all the different beers throughout the tasting session.

The four lambics include:

  • 1 yr-old Girardin
  • 1 yr-old De Troch
  • 1 yr-old Lindemans
  • 1 yr-old Bokkereyder

The four gueuzes include:

  • 50% Girardin, 17% De Troch, 17% Lindemans, 17% Bokkereyder
  • 50% De Troch, 17% Girardin, 17$ Lindemans, 17% Bokkereyder
  • 50% Lindemans, 17% Girardin, 17% De Troch, 17% Bokkereyder
  • 50% Bokkereyder, 17% Girardin, 17% De Troch, 17% Lindemans
