Brewery Note :
Gueuze Cuvée René is one of the jewels of our brewery. With its golden colour, its sparkle and its beautiful sherry aromas, this is the queen of gueuzes.
This old gueuze is a blend of old and young lambic matured in large oak barrels called foudres. It is then bottled in a beautiful champagne bottle where a second fermentation takes place. After 6 months, the gueuze obtains a golden colour and is slightly carbonated and tart. But kept in a cellar for a few years, it becomes truly exceptional!
The use of a champagne bottle dates back to an uncertain time period when lambic brewers specialised in recovering empty bottles from great restaurants and other establishments where a lot of champagne was consumed. That is why we chose the most noble of bottles to hold our noblest beer.
Beside this traditional Gueuze (the Gueuze Grand-Cru-Cuvee-René), there is also a more commercial Gueuze that dominate the market. It is filtered, pasteurized and has a more sweet taste.
Good to know : Lambic and wine are closely related. Lambic brewers may use beer ingredients, but the fermentation and maturation processes are similar to those for wine. When lambic undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle to turn into an old gueuze, its natural carbonation and foam formation are similar to those of champagne. That is why old gueuze is often called the 'champagne of beers'.
