Lindemans Oude Gueuze Cuvée René Special Blend 2010
A brewery would not be a brewery if it did not celebrate this festive moment by introducing a millennium brew. The Cuvée René Special Blend 2010 is an exclusive blend in which 10,000 litres of old lambic - aged for five years in oak barrels called foudres - are blended with a small quantity of young lambic. This unique beer then ferments in the bottle for a few months. This Limited Edition has restricted availability (only 15,000 bottles worldwide).
It pours clear golden with a small white head. Nose is very heavy on oak, almost overly so, very clean, apple, lemon, little in the way of sourness. Regular one smelled & tasted rather sweet when compared to this one. Taste is equal. Loads of grapefruit, grainy sweetness, funky tartness, astringent, lingering zesty bitterness. Dry finish. Really balanced. Light sweet apples and ripe fruits. Quite balanced.
