Lambic is the only beer in the world of spontaneous fermentation. Lambic as such is a bland drink, but it serves as the basis for gueuze, kriek and other popular fruit beers. The Brussels' brewery Belle-Vue (now part of Interbrew) made these brews great, but at the same time changed the original taste. Gueuze is not an easy drink (very sour); Belle-Vue has sweetened it. There are just a few traditional gueuze-breweries that have survived: Cantillon is the last one in Brussels. On Saturdays, there are guided tours in the museum that is next to the brewery and there is a cafe.
