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".

diabel (1603) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2007
Bottle at Heeren van Liedekercke, Denderleeuw, Belgium
Clear, amber body. Off-white, fizzy head. Sweet-sour aroma of apples, peach, pears, sirupe. Flavour with a lot of peach. Moderately sweet initial flavour. Heavily sour, moderately sweet finish. All the sourness is popping up in the end. Nice, quite aggressive, but not very well balanced.

henrikb (1257) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2007
Dark golden body, big white head; Lots of framboisen (?) and warm vinegar, sugar and a little vanilla; Soft vinegar like thin body, sweet and a little acidy; Long dusty sweet vinegar like thin finish, caramel aromas. Strange and not really good.

ekstedt (5317) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2007 Bottle (1996 vintage) from Systembolaget. Pours a lovely hazy orange amber color with almost no head. Very complex fruity aroma, with peaches, cherry, apples, grapefruit, and with notes of wood. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Refreshingly sour and bitter flavour, perhaps a bit harsh even. My first unblended lambic, and very good.

This is special bottling for Swedish market I think. Hazy orange-apricot color, no head. Sour and fruity (apricot, peach) aroma. Light, easy to drink -lambic. Dry but not really sour, aftertaste is more sourish with nice fruityness. Also woody and earthy notes.
