Boxed beer' could be the new drinking trend
« on: April 13, 2018, 07:06:28 PM »
uncarbonated sour lambic-style ales on tap and in 1.5-liter bag-in-boxes. Meh. I’m good.

Can I just just skip to the part where I throw my money away? How do they define trend? This seems more like a parachute pants situation.

Seems like an interesting experiment to me. You guys don't like lambic-style beers I take it?

Geuze, Faro, Kriek, Framboos... all well carbonated, have enjoyed them.  Not sure I'd like them without that quality.  Hard to imagine.

Trust me, it's good. I've also used simple lambic to add fruit myself.

Correction, it cán be good, for instance when it's kriek from Girardin ;)

A friend brought beer a flat single barrel lambic (or was it gueuze?) from Belgium in a wine-in-a-box bladder.  I could see why sour beers are often blended.  Like homoeccentricus said, would be easy to add fruit or blend in a younger sour.

Geuze is by definition Iambic that is bottled and quite carbonated, no?

Yes. Gueuze does not come in a box.

Now, where did I put that u I'm missing?  Apparently I've been misspelling "gueuze."  My apologies to Belgians everywhere.  Well, to Frank at least.

No, it's geuze in Dutch and gueuze in French. I normally use the Dutch version, I simply thought most English people use the French version. Hey, now I'm confused too :(

I too like the poetic rhythms of beer, though I prefer the stronger, accentual rhythms--much more carbonated than iambic pentameter....
