Lindemans Cuvée René Oude Geuze Lambic (ABV 5.2%) is an authentic "Oude Geuze," every batch blended by hand from aged and younger wild-fermented wheat lambics made with only a small proportion of aged hops. Due to secondary fermentation in the bottle, it will improve for years, cellared lying on its side.

With a glowing golden color and aromas of sour fruit, leather, and barnyard hay, it offers a taste that is cidery and vinous -- reminiscent, perhaps, of bubbly dry vermouth, but with a tarter and more complex flavor. Exceedingly refreshing. rating: 96 (out of 100) 12 oz capped bottle.

Food Pairings

As an aperitif in place of dry sherry, with carbonnade a la boeuf, mussels poached in gueuze, flavorful cheeses; sometimes served in Belgium with cubes of sugar on the side, to sweeten to taste. Serve in a tall, thick tumbler or a flute glass. 

Lindemans Brewery, initially a family farm in southwest Brussels, began commercial brewing operations in 1822. They specialized in Lambics – a unique style of wheat beer wholly dependent on wild airborne yeasts for fermentation as well as on an exceptionally long period of maturation up to 3 years.

Over time, brewery revenue gradually outpaced farming revenue and by 1930, the Lindemans family was able to cease farming operations altogether to concentrate fully on the brew business.

Today the brewery, still family owned, exports its award winning ales to a dozen countries including the US, where their ales outsell all other Lambics.
