The Open Work: Duivelsbier
This dark, spontaneous beer is a cousin of Lambic. Inoculated by the nighttime air and ripened for 2 years in oak, it is tart, wine-like, and fruity.
The Duivelsbier style was popular in the 1800’s and produced in the city of Halle in Belgium’s lambic country. The very last producer of the style, Van Der Linden, vanished 20 years ago. This may very well be the only beer of its kind in the world today! 6% ABV
