Kriek Ice Cream
Belgium is home to an array of interesting beer styles. One of the most fascinating is their fruit beers which are made through a long process of aging beer and then infusing it with fresh fruit. The name for this family of beer is lambic. The classic lambic is made with cherries and called Kriek. Turning it into ice cream is simply delicious and a great way to finish a beer-focused meal. You will need an ice cream churn to make this recipe.
