Watch this short video about Lindemans Beer (not in English but still cool to watch) :
Since 1822, six generations of the Lindemans family have crafted authentic lambics of exquisite taste and complexity in the Pajottenland region, southwest of Brussels. Lambics are among the world’s rarest and most mysterious beers: they are the only beers fermented via wild, airborne yeast. The unusual and unique flavors that come from spontaneous fermentation are unmatched in the world of beer.
A little history about Lindemans Beer:
- The commercial brewing started in 1822 in the Southwest of Brussels, in the quiet Belgian town of Vlezenbeek.
- Lambic, or spontaneously fermented beers, are the beers of this region and are among the world’s rarest: they are the only beers fermented via wild, airborne yeast – no yeast is added by the brewers.
- The unusual, demanding, and unique flavors that come from multiple yeast strains are unmatched in the world of beer.
- Merchant du Vin introduced Lindemans lambics to the United States in 1979, making them the first lambics marketed in U. S. history. To this day, they are the best selling brand in the category.
Different Flavors of Lindemans:
- The romantic, mysterious, wild-fermented wheat beers of Belgium’s Flanders are among the world’s rarest beers.
- Lambic is unique in that the brewing process often takes several years.
- Artisanal lambic breweries such as Lindemans, make their fruit beers by blending the lambic and fresh fruit or fresh fruit juice before bottling producing Kriek (cherry), Framboise (raspberry), Pêche (peach), and Pomme (apple).
