Brouwerij Lindemans "Cuveé René" Oude Gueuze Lambic Ale, Belgium (750ml)

SKU #1285139 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark One of the classic examples of this traditional Belgian style, this wild-fermented wheat beer is a blend of old and young lambic aged in foudres and made only with aged hops. It pours a hazy golden color, with upfront earthy aromas of barnyard, leather and yeasty funk that are grounded in tones of lemon peel, green apple and white grape. The palate is lively and full of nerve, picking up the medium body with flavors of sour apple and cider vinegar as well as bright carbonation. The earthiness returns on the back of the sip, allowing final, drying notes of white pepper, lemon pith and yeasty spice to linger long on the close. (LB) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

K&L Notes

From the producer: "Oude Gueuze Cuvée René is one of the jewels of our brewery. With its golden colour, its sparkle and its beautiful sherry aromas, this is the queen of gueuzes. This old gueuze is a blend of old and young lambic matured in large oak barrels called foudres. It is then bottled in a beautiful champagne bottle where a second fermentation takes place. After 6 months, the gueuze obtains a golden colour and is slightly carbonated and tart. But kept in a cellar for a few years, it becomes truly exceptional! The use of a champagne bottle dates back to an uncertain time period when lambic brewers specialised in recovering empty bottles from great restaurants and other establishments where a lot of champagne was consumed. That is why we chose the most noble of bottles to hold our noblest beer."
