Making beer can be a complicated scientific process that uses incredible meticulous attention to detail, exacting standards dictate that the correct amount of ingredients are mixed for the right amount of time and then a finely honed strain of yeast is added for a specific amount of time to produce the perfect brew. Or, in Pajottenland, Belgium you take your ingredients as normal, mix and boil as normal and then later nature do its thing and hope that the unusually high amounts of naturally occurring yeast in the night air will find your brew and magic will happen, the next day you hide it away in enormous wooden casks until the beer is ready, that could be a few months or a year. Lambic beer is only made in this one region of Belgium because its the only place that the conditions are just right. The resulting beer is often fruit flavoured, it is seen as being the beer of beer aficionados due to its almost sour characteristic. This is definitely one to try at least once.
