COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
DISCLAIMER:
This is a special release from Lindemans. These are bottles which were intended to become Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René, but they lacked to start a second fermentation. The contents is a 2 years old lambik (1994) blended with a 1 year old lambik (1995). It is a 1996 vintage and was released from the brewery in 2006.

Most of the bottles were exported to Sweden (Systembolaget) and sold as "Lindemans Oude Lambik". Some of them stayed in Belgium. This beer can therefore also be tasted at Heeren van Liedekercke. It is named "Lindemans Loeierik" over there.

Because of the blend this is not the same as "Lindemans Oude Lambik".

If you had a draught version, then you should definitely add a rating for "Lindemans Oude Lambik".

mcberko (6047) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle at DHVL, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out wood, medium barnyard funk, and a little horse blanket. Flavour is very well-balanced, with medium funk, some barnyard, a little leather and wet wood. Extremely well-constructed, with a soft palate. One of the best Lindemans product. Wonderful.

tom10101 (2665) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 28, 2014
Bottle (750 ml) @ De Heeren van Liedekercke. Clear bright golden/orange with a small bubbly ring of white foam. Aroma is very lemony forward (almost like Ice tea), some funk, light sweetness, cheesy notes and hay. Taste is also super lemony with light funk, nice fruitiness and some cheesy notes. Light body. Soft carbonation. Dry finish. Nice quenching Gueuze, but not super complex. Tasty and drinkable. Very different from Gueuze Cuvée René.

Crimson gold. Great color 1 finger big bubbles. Metallic sulphur and egg white nose. Taste is sweet and not terrible. Sweet, lemon, light metal, thin, very dry and a bit like black tea. Very refreshing on a hot day anno 2000 bottle @ DHL

Bottle at DHVL. Clear gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is herbal, cherry, a tad medicinal, citrusy. Taste is sour, tea flavors, quite leafy, a bit of mint, light gastric acidity. Palate is dry, light prickly carb, dry finish. Nice gueuze.

Dunt (283) - Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle received from Marc. Poured into a Hill Farmstead wine glass. Pours a flat muddy orange in color with a few bubbles forming around the edges of the glass. Nose is floral and pretty oxidized. There is a little fruitiness to it as well, maybe some sherry character from the oxidation. The oxidation shows less in the flavor, bright taste with a good amount of fruitiness. Some light cardboard on the finish, but very muted. Dull mouthfeel, good acidity, no carbonation, and an enduring finish. This beer is fucking AWESOME!

#2150. 2000 Vintage. Did most of a 75 cl. bottle@ DHL. No label. Does anyone else even have this one anymore? Bright orange pure lambic appearance, some white head, great for pure lambic, the head looks a bit like mouldy. Nose is huge dust, musty cellar, tart rotting lemons, fermentation, musty, vintage notes, really old non-prime lambic. Taste is mellow musty, rotting cellar as well as sweet cellar, tart lemon, smallest hint of honey, rotting vintage notes, very old Lindemans lambic (dig the young one way, way more), end of the bottle has the taste od mould somewhat. Lambic body feel. Old, possibly too old with these hardcore notes but still very, very enjoyable lambic. Don’t think that this is the best that Lindemans has done so far, that 20th Anniversary blend is mighty fine.
