COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
René Lindemans had made an experiment with Lindemans Kriek Cuvée René, involving a very short pasteurization instead of a somewhat longer one normally performed on the Cuvée René beers. The result wasn’t as intented. René refused to sell the beer as Cuvée René Kriek and instead part of it was sold (500 bottles) to De Heeren van Liedekercke.
