This is a special release from Lindemans. These are bottles which were intended to become Lindemans Gueuze Cuve Ren, 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".

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 25, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Immy at 6th Richmond Gathering. Medium to light hazy amber. Aroma was lightly of sour apple, some faint cedar, and horseblanket. Flavor is sour, and otherwise matches the aroma. Bit of cheddar shows up as well. Really well balanced, very nice carbonation, thoroughly enjoyed this one. Complex and sour without making your tongue completely twist. Delighted to be able to sample this rare treat. For me, the highlight of the tasting.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2007
A Mes rate: 75cl bottle from the wonderful Heeren van Liedekercke.
Beautiful golden brown colour. Totally clean and with a wisp of lacy film head. Unusual seedy and pithy lambic aroma with an almost framboise fruityness and really mellow gueuze underneath. Flavour is just starting to show signs of age. Slight artificial sweetness to it. Strong notes of lemon. Possibly just a little oxidised with some papery stuff appearing. Great sweet and sour finish. Love the fruity notes. So very fruity. In a blind tasting you would swear this is a fruit lambic. Ends up very yeasty, due to the bottle conditioning not working? Totally flat but strangely spritzy. Feels lovely in the mouth. Jolly good stuff.
