BlossomGueuze

"Elderflower has a subtle flavour that goes well with a sour, old gueuze."

Lambic beer is a very versatile beer inspiring creativity. The Family Brewery Lindemans proves this once again with the launch of the BlossomGueuze, an old gueuze with a twist. The result? A very original and unique beer, made with elderflower. Perfect for food pairing or as a tasty aperitif!

"The great success of SpontanBasil – an old gueuze macerated with fresh basil – was a little unexpected," says Dirk Lindemans, Dirk Lindemans, cousin of Geert Lindemans and also Managing Director."It got us thinking about what herbs or botanicals would go well with a sour, old gueuze. With the elderflower we went for a more subtle flavour. We are convinced that our BlossomGueuze will be even a tad more accessible."

Secret technique

BlossomGueuze is 2 to 3 year old lambic aged in wood, blended with 12 month old lambic and elderflower. After refermentation in the bottle this gueuze has a golden colour and combines the sour taste of lambic with the natural and fresh aromas of elderflower.

Good to know : "Like all our lambic beers, BlossomGueuze is available in a champagne bottle, sealed with cork and bottle cap," said Dirk Lindemans. "For our SpontanBasil we received many compliments about the design of our bottle. So we have done our best to create an equally beautiful bottle for the new BlossomGueuze!"
