The marriage of genuine lambic, to the cherry - originally the Schaerbeek cherry - always has surprising results, particularly as a spontaneously fermented young lambic is added to the old lambic in the proportion of one to three. This union, in which natural bitterness dominates, will delight genuine connoisseurs of spontaneous fermentation and will surprise newcomers to fruit beers in their most prestigious and noble form.
Timmermans has been brewing in Itterbeek for the last 300 years, ever since 1702. A few miles from the centre of Brussels, it was then known as "The Mole brewery”.
Owned by Jacobus Walravens, it was also a farm, an orchard, a café and a malt-house.
In the early 20th century, the sixth generation, Paul Van Cutsem, son-in-law of Frans Timmermans (5th generation), changed the name to "The Timmermans Brewery”.
« Bourgogne des Flandres » was born in Bruges at the beginning of the 20th century. For seven generations, the Van Houtryve family has been keeping an eye on the unique and very old brewing process : "infusion of lambic”. In this process, a selection of best lambic is mixed with high-fermentation ale.
Bourgogne des Flandres has now been brewed by Timmermans since 1985. A member of Anthony Martin’s "Finest Beer selection” since 1993, Timmermans retains its authenticity and "savoir-faire” whilst enjoying membership of Martin’s unique selection of "Finest Beers”.
