Marriage of Tienen sour cherries and authentic Brussels brewing know-how gives unique character to Kriek Belle-Vue
16 July, as is the case every year, was the key day for the brewing of the unique Kriek Lambic craft beer in Belle-Vue. Well before dawn tons of prime sour cherries arrived from Tienen. The Belle-Vue master brewer promptly dumped the cherries into the barrels with Lambic. After six months of maturing, the Belle-Vue Kriek was bottled. With its unique sour-fresh taste Kriek Belle-Vue is the number one cherry beer on the Belgian market. These are becoming increasingly popular thanks to the popularity of sour and bitter tastes.
