Dessert time is dedicated to enjoying the sweeter things in life, and nothing says sweet like your classic diner float. Crowned with huge scoops of ice cream and your favorite soda, it's pretty unsurprising to see kids in movies lined up at the diner counter, jumping at the prospect of imbibing this sugar rush. Well, consider our lambic float the grown-up version of your favorite diner treat, hitting that perfect balance of "sweet-but-not-too-sweet." Simple and delicious, the lambic's sour bite helps temper the vanilla's sugar overload. The result? A mellow sweetness crowned with an airy dollop of float foam, perfect for ailing those childhood memories and cooling off during hot summer days.
