Cantillon Lou Pepe Framboise 2009

Style: Fruit Beer, Lambic
Alcohol: 5% ABV
Brewery: Cantillon Brasserie
Country/Region: Belgium

Product Description:

Lambicis made from a blend of malted barley, raw wheat and debittered (3 year old) hops.The wort is exposed to wild yeasts and natural bacteria by cooling in an open vat. The beer is matured in oakwood or chestnut barrels, (which also harbour the wild yeasts and bacteria), and left to naturally ferment in the brewerys cellar for up to 3 years. The wild bugs cause the beer to ferment natural (spontaneously) - that is without the addition of any commercial yeast strain. The result is a light bodied but intensely sour and complex beer with a tartness reminiscent of a hard cider or white wine.
 
Lambic brewers often add fruit to the casks mid fermentation. The beer then takes on intense fruit flavours and colours, though interestingly the fruit does not add any sweetness to the beer.
The beer is commonly bottled in 750mL corked champagne bottles- fitting due to the vinous character of this style.
 
Cantillon does not sweeten or modify their beers in any way. Cantillons beers are sour, funky and unique - they are the traditional style sour beers brewed as they were when the brewery first opened over 100 years ago.
 
Lou Pepe Framboise
 
Very rare unblended raspberry lambic, straight from the oak barrels, with almost twice the raspberries of the normal blended Framboise.
 
Fresh stock of 2009 LP Framboise arrived in December 2011. It is extremely limited, so we have to limit it to a 4 bottle maximum per customer. Please contact us on the number below to reserve stock.

Tasting Notes:

Cantillon's "Lou Pepe" beers are a selection of their very best lambic vintages, chosen for fine taste and aroma. Unlike most other Lambic beers, the "Lou Pepe" range represents a single vintage, and not a blend of different years. 
 
Rasberries are added to Lou Pepe Framboise to obtain a well-balanced, albeit intensely sour, beer.
