Welcome to the official page of the Lindemans family which has been brewing lambic since 1822. The family has owned a farm since the dawn of time. It was to occupy (and refresh) the peasants in winter that we began our brewing activity. With time and success, our agricultural activities decreased as our brewery developed.
As Darwin said, functions create organs. Today, we are once again expanding our brewery to share the love of our beers beyond our borders.

The 2019 edition of the yearly Lambikstoemper geuze, blended by the Lambikstoempers for their 20th anniversary, an old school club of lambic lovers from the Senne Valley – in this case using only Lindemans lambics of (obviously) different ages. Off-white, fizzy, quickly breaking, irregular ‘ring of foam’, pure golden blonde robe with ochre-ish tinge and lively visible sparkling, clear at first, misty later on and murky-beige in the end. Aroma of green gooseberries, wood sorrel, old dry wood, lots of dusty shelves, old oxidized dry white wine, dusty attic, old brown cardboard even, some dry sherry, touch of chlorine but only in the end. Tart, dry onset, strong Granny Smith apple effects alongside green gooseberry and unripe green plums, lively carbonated though not in a sharp way – and actually a tad less effervescent than I am used to from oude geuze. Supple bready core surrounded by drying lactic tartness and ongoing green fruit acidity, becoming ever more woody and ‘dusty’ in the end, with that old oxidized white wine effect returning and crisp green plum-like astringency; bitterness remains altogether soft. Not the most complex or ‘full’ geuze I had – a ‘basic’ kind of blend to be honest, and even if that typical Lindemans softness (‘malsheid’) and elegance are there, even their own Cuvée René offers somewhat more depth and colour than this one. Feels a bit dusty and oxidized for only three years of age, too; perhaps – I bought this as a vintage bottle earlier this year – not too well stored by the previous owner?

Deep gold with a brief white head that might have been affected by an errant speck of cork. Aroma of old oak, sherry, expired furniture polish, cherries, tart apples, pannetone. Smells rich for a gueuze but then upon a taste it's given structure by moderate lactic sourness and horsey funk. Nothing brash about it, it all seems mellow and well integrated. Oak and zingy at the end. Finish grips more after a time. Interesting, deep. Expensive but worth getting another to see how it goes - but seems quite mature now.

Huge, ultra dense & fine yellow head, as whipped eggwhite over faintly veiled orange-russet beer. Great horseblanket, lemonpeel aromas, freshly baked bread. Dry-ish with a fine acidity, partly lemony, partly lactic, partly fruity and other. Fruit as slightly unripe peach, gooseberry, citrus, but also yoghurt. Perfectly attenuated, sparkling carbonation. Lipsmacking acidity, dry-out effect, yet hardly and acidburn. Superb gueuze, arguably the best Lindemans turned out for several decades.
