Lindemans Oude Kriek Cuvee Rene is an authentic fruity and sour lambic beer. It is made by adding fresh cherries to half-young lambic, after which the lambic continues to ferment for 8-12 more months in oak barrels. It is a dark red kriek beer with a pink head. It has a rich and fruity aroma, a very sour and refreshing cherry taste and an alcohol content of 6.0%.
This beer won the golden medal at the World Beer Awards in 2013 in the Category “Best Sour Beer’. The Lindemans lambic beers are mostly sweet, but with their Cuvee Rene range they go back to their roots and produce typical sour lambic beers. Besides this Kriek, there is also a Lindemans Gueuze Cuvee Rene.
