Known for their traditional Belgian ales not limited to but including Gueuze, Framboise, Cassis, Apple, Faro, Pecheresse, and Kriek; Lindemans remains a goal for breweries throughout the world with its multi-generational heritage. Family-owned and imported (into the United States) by Merchant du Vin, Lindemans continues to inspire both consumers and brewers alike to rethink what they pair their meal with.
Not willing to rest on simply producing their famous gueuze or lambic, the family is happy to announce the release of Young Lambic. Brewed with the same approach of their other lambics, Young Lambic is a single-batch ale exclusively sold in kegs.
Lambics, wild-fermented beers from Belgium’s Senne River Valley, show complex, interesting, sour flavors. Brewers like Lindemans blend lambic batches from different years to make gueuze, and also often add fruit for beautiful balance.
Described by the brewery as " ... rare, young, uncarbonated, unblended, unsweetened lambic" Young Lambic promises a unique experience from keg to keg as each is derived based on brewing season, the age of the foudre, and of course the yeast that is unique to Lindemans.

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 1822.
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. Lambics come only from the Senne River valley, near Brussels - a region about 15 by 75 miles in size. 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.
