New Belgiums Transatlantique Kriek to Return

Transatlantique is a spontaneously fermented lambic beer made with Polish cherries. Frank Boon created this lambic nearly 2 years ago, and it has been sitting in oak since in Lembeek, Belgium.  Soon, New Belgium will organize shipping and bring it across the Atlantic.  New Belgium’s brewmaster Peter Bouckaert will blend it with a golden lager creating the final product.  If all goes well, it should hit shelves before year’s end.

Hops: Willamette
Malts: Pale, Red Wheat, Carapils, Roasted Barley
Arrival: Late 2012
