Lindemans Cuvée Francisca – 200th Anniversary Oude Gueuze

The just-released, very limited Lindemans Cuvée Francisca Oude Gueuze  commemorates Francisca Vandersmissen, who married Joos Lindemans in 1822. Together, they founded Lindemans Brewery.

Lindemans Brewery, in Vlezenbeek, Belgium, celebrates 200 years of lambic brewing in 2022! The just-released, very limited Lindemans Cuvée Francisca Oude Gueuze  commemorates Francisca Vandersmissen, who married Joos Lindemans in 1822: they began to brew and sell lambic, and to this day six generations later the same family continues to make wonderful wild-fermented beer, lambic, in the same village.

Cuvée Francisca is a special brewery blend of young lambic and four-year-old lambic, fermented in oak then bottle-conditioned for a full year. It shows a dark golden color; oak, citrus, and vanilla notes; and sherry aroma in the finish: it’s a vital, dry, complex, superb oude gueuze.

Please note that this is a one-time, extremely limited release: if you see a bottle on a shelf or menu near you, consider buying it . . . because when it’s gone there’s no chances to reorder. Check our beer search for a US retailer near you.
