2006 Brewers Association Style Guidelines

Major Style:Ale
Sub-Style Name:Belgian-Style Fruit Lambic
Origin:Belgian and French
Description:

These beers, also known by the names framboise, kriek, peche, cassis, etc., are characterized by fruit flavors and aromas. The color reflects the choice of fruit. Sourness is an important part of the flavor profile, though sweetness may compromise the intensity. These flavored lambic beers may be very dry or mildly sweet and range from a dry to a full-bodied mouthfeel.

Versions of this beer made outside of the Brussels area of Belgium cannot be true lambics. These versions are said to be "lambic-style" and may be made to resemble many of the beers of true origin.

Alcohol By Weight (by Volume):4.0-5.5% (5.0-7.0%)
Bitterness:15-21
Colour:Color takes on hue of fruit.
Original Gravity:1.040-1.072 (10-17.5 šPlato)
