Fruit lambic beers are tart Belgian brews fermented with wild yeasts and aged with crushed fruit or fruit juices. A mix of peach and raspberry lambics makes a drink that sounds like dessert but tastes like an apéritif.

If you enjoyed this fruit-infused drink, be sure to try the others in our Drinks and Entertaining Guide.
