Cantillon Grand Cru Bruocsella Lambic Organic
With this beer you get the pure Lambik feeling. Because the Grand Cru is neither blinded, nor was it matured on fruits. In the bottle there is only 3 years old Lambik from Cantillon. No bottle fermentation, no carbon dioxide. Instead, a lot of wild, complex, woody aromas and a refreshing pure beer.

Cantillon is certainly one of the most sought-after Belgian breweries among Lambic lovers. The brewery was founded in 1900 and today is managed by Jean-Pierre van Roy. On the historic brewing plant only spontaneously fermented beers are produced, which are stored and fermented for several years in wooden barrels. Spontaneously fermented beers can only be brewed in winter, so Cantillon can only be produced in winter. This type of brewing, the most important ingredient of which are the wild yeasts from the air, was already almost extinct worldwide and has survived in Belgium at a few breweries. Cantillon is very difficult to obtain due to the high demand, the time-consuming production and the limited capacity.
