Lindemans Gueuze Lambic Sour Beer 250ml
There are several stories to explain the origin of the term ‘gueuze’. This name dates back to the Rue de Gueuze in Brussels where, for the first time, a producer offered his delicious lambic in champagne bottles. Word about the ‘lambick on Rue de Gueuze’ quickly got around. According to other sources, gueuze has its roots in ‘gazeux’ – the French word for carbonated – since traditional gueuze is a carbonated blend of different lambics.
After the Second World War, some lambic brewers devised a new production method. They filtered the beer, added sugar, saturated it (with carbon dioxide) and pasteurised it. This new gueuze, closed with a bottle cap and available in 25 cl bottles, was called capped gueuze.
Developed according to this production method, Gueuze Lindemans is a slightly sweeter version of Old Gueuze Cuvée René.
