This unique, refreshing beer appetizer is the result of amalgamating fresh strawberries with lambic during summer. They mature throughout the winter season. In spring, the strawberry lambic is bottled. In order to fully enjoy the taste and flavour of this appetizer, it is recommended to consume it within one year of bottling. Due to the typical characteristics of the fruit, the strawberry lambic is changing rapidly into a geuze lambic. Therefore, opposed to geuze or kriek, no blend is made of different aged lambics resulting in a lesser second fermentation and less carbon dioxide. Oude Geuze and Oude Kriek are as well very good appetizers and should be served with a cellar temperature. Oudbeitje is recommended to serve ice- chilled in a champagne glass.
