Men det finns de bryggerier i Belgien som varit igång bra mycket längre och till dessa sällar sig lambicbryggeriet Lindemans. Efter diverse efterforskningar har de funnit ut att de firar 200 år 2022. Anrikt, får man säga, och med anledning av detta har de släppt en specialgueuze de kallar Lindemans Cuvée Francisca 200th Anniversary Blend.
Denna unika Gueuze har beskrivits med orden:
A notable milestone in brewing takes place this year as Lindemans Brewery, one of the oldest Belgian lambic beer brewers in the world, celebrates its bicentennial this year. To mark this anniversary of brewing for 200 years, Lindemans is set to release a limited edition lambic, Cuvée Francisca.
Lindemans Brewery was founded in 1822 by Francisca Josina Vandersmissen and Joos Frans Lindemans in Vlezenbeek in the heart of Pajottenland, Belgium. To celebrate the brewery’s rich 200-year heritage, Lindemans is releasing an exclusive anniversary beer:
Cuvée Francisca. Inspired by and named after Lindemans first lady, Francisca Josina Vandersmissen, it is a unique blend of a four-year-old lambic from the oak casks T1001 (20%), T1006 (35%), T1017 (35%) and 10% young lambic from foeder (oak cask) T1014; it’s dry yet complex, making it a nicely balanced oldgueuze for beer enthusiasts as well as those new to the style. First fermented in wooden casks and then refermented in a bottle for 12 months, it carries a distinct taste of oak, citrus and notes of vanilla with a sherry aroma. The jubilee blend has a refreshingly sour yet crisp finish, and pours a golden blonde color.
Francisca Josina Vandersmissen was born in Hof ter Kwadewegen in Belgium’s Pajottenland a region known for its noble beer lineage, as it is the only location in the world where authentic lambic can be brewed. Soon after Francisca married Joos Frans Lindemans in 1822, they moved into the Vandermissen farm brewery and thus Lindeman’s Brewery was born. Two hundred years and six generations later, Lindemans Brewery is still owned by the founding family and is now led by cousins and co-owners, Dirk and Geert Lindemans, and continues to operate in its same founding region.
