Tumbler
Best known as "the Hoegaarden glass", tumblers are session glasses with a very gentle straight slope, though the Hoegaarden glass itself has a wider bowl at the top of the glass. These graceless glasses are used for witbiers to highlight the hard-working farm origins of the style. To the amazement of North Americans, they are also used in Belgium for gueuze. We should all be so lucky as to have gueuze and lambic as local, working class session brews!

Appropriate for these styles:

Belgian Ale
Belgian Strong Ale
Belgian White (Witbier)
Lambic - Faro
Lambic - Fruit
Lambic - Gueuze
Lambic - Unblended
Sour Ale
Specialty Grain
Spice/Herb/Vegetable
