Brouwerij Lindemans

Official Web Page 
Tel: () -   Fax: () -

Opened: 1811
Date Visited:

Southwest of Brussels, in the quiet Belgian town of Vlezenbeek, the Lindemans family has been farming and homebrewing as long as anyone can remember. Commercial brewing started in 1811 in their barn-like brewery.

Merchant du Vin introduced Lindemans lambics to the United States in 1979, making them the first lambics marketed in U. S. history.

Don't read too much into the ratings on these, rather make a choice according to your taste of fruit.

Lindeman's Cassis Lambic Type: Fruit Lambic ABV: %
I get a feeling that I'm pretty much saying "same again" with all these beers. Essentially they are the same thing with a different fruit addition. I felt this one was closer to wine than any of the others, with a lighter tasting fruit, which made easier drinking.
Ratings: Appearance: 4/5 Aroma: 8/10 Palate: 4/5 Taste: 10/10 Overall: 17/20 Score: 4.3


Lindemans Framboise Lambic Type: Fruit Lambic ABV: %
A little liveliness,  deep bloody red, head is pink. Unlike most Belgian brews, the head quickly disappears. The aroma is pretty deep. Of course the raspberry jumps out, but youíll also get a little earthiness, which may be hard to detect at first. The beer is pretty light on the palate and drinks as easily as a sweet cider. I actually had to discipline myself to drink this slowly. The flavor, as you would expect, is predominantly sweet, itís raspberry and itís also sweetened to cover the tartness. There is a hint of sourness which hits you towards the back and a slight lingering dryness. You are left chewing on raspberries though for some time afterwards. The more studious may notice that there is actually a beer behind the raspberry.

Lindemans PÍche Lambic Type: Fruit Lambic ABV: %
Golden color, fresh peach aroma. Sparkling, crisp and refreshing balance of fruit and acid. More subtle than other Lindeman's fruit lambics.
