One of the oldest beers in the world is the lambic, an authentic sour beer obtained by spontaneous fermentation only. This beer also serves as the basis for gueuze and a whole variety of fruit beers of which kriek (cherry) is probably the most well-known. Check out these excellent brews from Cantillon and Boon.
