LINDEMANS GINGER GUEUZE



The newest release from Brouwerij Lindemans is the next beer in their new botanical series. The first one was created in collaboration with Mikkeller and featured basil. The second botanical Gueuze they produced used elder flower and was called Blossom. Ginger Gueuze, or GingerGueuze as it appears on the label, features ginger root as the name implies. Lindemans uses their classic Cuvée René Gueuze for this series then infuse it with the botanical of their choice. The lambic used is a mix of 2 and 3 year old blended with 1 year old lambic. The 1 year old lambic still has quite a bit of residual sugar which the the 2 & 3 year old lack after being fermented dry by the wild yeast. The residual sugar will allow the yeast to carb up the beer once it’s transferred to the bottle. This allows lambic to naturally bottle condition without the addition of sugar or yeast.
