Review – Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René
From Merchand du Vin, U.S. distributers of Lindeman’s Brewing – Possibly the oldest beer, Gueuze, or Geuze, (pronounced “GOO-za”) is unseasoned, wild-fermented wheat beer. The brewers blend aged lambic and younger lambic, to taste, and a bottle refermentation occurs after capping. It is highly coveted by gourmands in Belgium who lay it in their cellars like wine.
Lindemans Brewing – Gueuze Cuvée René – 355 ml. bottle poured into my New Belgium glass. 5% abv.
Apperance: Light cloudy orange with a small sparkly head.
Aroma: Oak and yeast.
Taste: Oak, lemon juice and funk.
Mouthfeel: Juicy and puckering.
Overall: Very good and very sour. Would be enjoyable with a fruity dessert or on a hot summer day.
