The MS Ludina can be found opposite of Café De Toeter."
Lambic beers have a sense of place unlike any other beer style. Although the breweries are located in the same Pajottenland area, every brewery houses its own mix of native yeasts and bacteria, freely flowing through the air and falling down in the wort during its overnight exposure to the air in the coolship. In this tasting we're going to explore 4 different lambics and 4 different geuze blends.
First we'll taste 4 lambics side by side, to discover the different aromas, flavors and characteristics. Then we'll taste 4 geuze blends, made with the same lambics. Each geuze blend has 50% of one lambic, and equal proportions of the other lambics. Through this tasting we can discover how the different lambics develop together in the bottle. Every participant gets 8 glasses (7 cl each) so we can compare all the different beers throughout the tasting.
The only spontanously fermenting brewery in the Czech Republic Wild Creatures and local heroes Rockin 'Ludina from Groningen will let you taste several of their finest barrel aged beers using local fruits.
6 beers (3x Wild Creatures + 3x Rockin' Ludina).
Fermenthings organizes a Kimchi Workshop during the Wild Festival. During the workshop you will learn the basics of fermentation, make Kimchi, go home with your own pot and start fermenting!
Join the Green Adventures guide. We start the hike with a Wild beer with wild herbs / fruit from Nevel. During this walk you will hunt for edible plants and unusual ingredients that grow everywhere in the wild. If the first session is full, an extra session will be organized.
