Lindemans Kriek Cuvee Rene Lambic 750ml
“This is the masterpiece of which I am most proud, as is one of my sons after whom it is named.
What makes this traditional kriek special is that it is brewed with whole cherries. Since real Schaerbeek cherries are scarce, Lindemans Brewery has found their perfect equivalence elsewhere in Europe.
It is deep red in colour and its foam head is slightly pink. Very refreshing, this beverage is a perfect thirst-quencher which, thanks to its fizzy and tangy flavour, is ideal as an aperitif.”
The cherries ferment in lambic that is at least six months old in large 10,000-litre wood barrels called foudres to make the Oude Kriek Cuvée René. This traditional kriek is bottled in corked 75 cl bottles after six months. The beer will then go through a spontaneous second fermentation phase, which will produce the carbon dioxide (CO2) that gives this true beer its carbonation and unmistakable foam head after a few months.
