Brewery: Brussels Beer Project
Style: Lambic – Unblended
Other Notes: Grappa-foeder aged lambic
Brewer Description: (from bottle) Our grappa foeder originally comes from a century-old distillery in Percoto, Italy and has been assembled by hand at Dansaert to give it a 2nd life. Grappa aging brings new layers to the blend: warmth, fruity notes & an extra spark of spirit. Lambic blend brewed in early 2020 & fermented in Côte Du Rhone & Bordeaux barrels for 14 months. The blend was then aged for 6 more months in our Grappa foeder.
