Oud Beersel Green Walnut 2017

by Oud Beersel


Country: BE | Style: Lambic | Size: 750ml | %ABV: 6

"Green Walnut" is a surprising and innovative lambic beer from Oud Beersel. As for the Oude Kriek Oud Beersel, the production of the Green Walnut only works with real fruit. In the month of July the still green walnuts are picked in the Oud Beersel orchard and added to Lambic matured on wooden wine barrels. The green walnuts draw on the lambic, giving off flavor and aroma. The initial bitterness that is extracted from the notes softens during the ripening of the walnut tree. This creates a delicate balance between the light sour of the lambic and the bitter of the green walnuts. The wooden wine barrels give a subtle touch of red fruit to the beer.

The Brewery Oud Beersel was founded in 1882 10km from Brussels city centre at Beersel. It's one of the last lambic breweries of Belgium. The traditional lambic is now brewed using modern techniques however the tradition lives on through the process of spontaneous fermentation and ageing in different vintage casks.
