Timmermans Oude Kriek is not merely a beer; it is a testament to the centuries-old Belgian brewing tradition that honours nature, time, and artisanal skill. Produced by the world's oldest lambic brewery, Timmermans has been perfecting the art of spontaneous fermentation since 1702. The Oude Kriek, one of its stellar creations, pays homage to this enduring legacy.

Tasting Notes:

  • Appearance: A deep ruby-red colour with a persistent, frothy pinkish head that beckons the drinker.
  • Aroma: A rich, intoxicating bouquet of ripe cherries hits the nose, intertwined with hints of almond and the characteristic sourness of wild yeast.
  • Flavour: An upfront tart cherry dominance is seamlessly balanced with a slight woody undertone and a refreshing sour finish, reminiscent of traditional lambics.
  • Mouthfeel: Light to medium-bodied, it offers a sprightly carbonation with a dry, crisp finish, leaving a lingering cherry essence.

Originating from the Pajottenland region of Belgium, the heartland of lambic beers, Timmermans Brewery ensures that each batch of Oude Kriek is brewed following age-old traditions. Freshly harvested cherries are added to the lambic, undergoing a second fermentation in oak barrels. This meticulous process, combined with the unpredictability of wild yeast and bacteria, ensures that each bottle is a unique masterpiece.

For the uninitiated, the world of lambics might seem daunting. Yet, Timmermans Oude Kriek serves as a delightful introduction. Its complex layers of flavour, resulting from the harmonious interplay of cherries, wild yeast, and time, captivate both seasoned beer aficionados and newcomers alike.

With every sip of Oude Kriek, one is transported to the pastoral landscapes of Belgium, where the rhythm of nature dictates the brewing cycle, and patience is the key ingredient. This beer invites you to pause, savour, and appreciate the nuanced symphony of flavours, echoing centuries of brewing wisdom.

Whether you're on a quest to explore the vast tapestry of the beer world or merely looking for an exceptional brew to enliven your senses, Timmermans Oude Kriek promises an unforgettable journey. Immerse yourself in a drink that transcends time, merging the past's richness with the present's vibrancy.

For an authentic Belgian lambic experience that resonates with history, craftsmanship, and passion, look no further. Dive deep into a world where beer is more than a beverage; it's a celebration of tradition – purchase online or in-store now.
