Kriek and Fruit Beers
Lambic beer - or sometimes white beer - is used as a basic beer to brew Belgian Kriek and fruit beer. At the end of the brewing process fruit, fruit juice or fruit aroma is added, just before the start of the fermentation process. Traditionally stone fruit is used such as cherries, peaches, raspberries but also strawberries, bananas and apples are possibilities. Some fruit beers are sweetened artificially, some are sweetened naturally. Fruity beers, especially the sweetened variants, are considered a perfect beer for women because of the lack of the bitter hop taste or sourness.
