Default Stop calling it Lambic!

Unless you have a coolship, it's not Lambic. That is all. Thanks.

Hold up. If you need to rant,go the whole hog and get it all off your chest mate!
But i do get where you are coming from. Lambic just sounds better than" an ale brewed to aproximate the traditional lambic style", no?

You had to be baiting for a debate with this one. Can we not call other beer styles by their original name unless we completely follow the traditional processes? Is it a pilsner without decoction for example?

If you need a coolship to make a Lambic, what's the point of having BJCP categories 17D and 17F. There would be very few if any entries. The guidelines say nothing about having to use coolships or needing to be spontaneously fermented.

Can it even be a pilsner without having been brewed in Pilsen?

Nope, just when people use 'pallet' instead if 'palate'.

I forgot the BJCP guidelines are the end all be all of beer knowledge.

Guessing you don't know what a coolship is. It's different from an open fermenter.
