It is no coincidence that lambic brewers use champagne bottles for their Oude Gueuze. They collect the empty bottles from major restaurants and other venues where champagne flows freely. This immediately lends a festive character to this unique Belgian beer style
Thanks to its in-bottle re-fermentation, the Lindemans Oude Gueuze Cuvée René gives you a completely natural sparkle and froth.
This Oude Gueuze contains one-third old lambic, aged for at least two years, and two-thirds young lambic, which is at least one year old and has been matured in large oak foeders.
The yeasts and sugars in the young lambic prompt the in-bottle re-fermentation. Slowly but surely the wild yeasts will convert all of the residual sugars into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Six months on, the result is a golden-coloured, sparkling, mildly sour gueuze.
