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".

Pours dark blonde, small white head. Smell is very fruity , soo much apple. Taste is rather sweet, apple , some candy. Some age signs , bu nowhere near what you think of 15 y. Only mild aspects of sourness. Beautifull, but not as sour as expected. This is hood in another way .

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.

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.

AdamChandler (5206) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2014
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

JulienHuxley (5979) - Sherbrooke, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
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 (321) - 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!
