This is the place to discuss all things Lambic. callmemickey has put together a great resource to reference HERE. This thread is aimed at discussing your love for lambics/geuzes, posting pictures, sharing stories, etc.

I'll start.

This was the best beer I have ever had


I am strongly in the Drie Fonteinen Geuze camp. I think they're the best overall.



And Tilquin sucks. Don't buy any. Send it all to myself or MordorMongo for proper consumption disposal

I love lambic. Over the summer I designed and built special shelves to hold my lambic on its side while still being earthquake-proof (this is a bit old, they're considerably fuller now):



(Ignore all the Bruery stuff in there, I just buy too much of that).
I don't remember if I asked this on BA, but why angled downward rather than upward or flat? Any particular reason? Never seen that before.

Because the geometry is such that it has to be angled downward. I don't think it actually matters so I do what's easy, doing anything else would have been difficult.
Gotcha. My thought was just that the lees would then settle in the elbow/neck which is probably not ideal, but now that I look at it it's probably not actually angled that much.

I opened up an Oude Lambiek from 2003 a couple months ago that was absolutely delicious. It was flat, but it didn't detract from it at all. It was so damn funky.

I see you're laying those down. I guess we can finally be friends.

The best use for fresh Cantillon Gueuze is as follows, in no particular order:

  1. Put fruit in your glass, pour gueuze over fruit, let sit, then consume happily
  2. Age for 10 years
  3. Blend with your favorite citrus-forward IPA to taste
  4. Reluctantly drink when you're low on 3F and Tilquin
  5. Tell backfat it's better than Hanssens
