History / Other Notes
The first batch of Gueuze Cuvée René was released in 1994 at the suggestion of the U.S. importer for Lindemans, Merchant du Vin. It is named for René Lindemans, who was the 6th generation master brewer at Lindemans before retiring and passing his share of the brewery on to his son in 2006. The label, in the Art Nouveau style, was designed Charles Finkel.
In April 2015, Lindemans released a special blend of Cuvée René upon the inauguration if their new facility.
Certain vintages of Cuvée René have coded bottle dates while others have actual dates printed out. When trying to decipher bottling codes for this beer you can go by the following example:
L is for Lindemans
D is fourth month (April), (A=January, L=December)
04 bottling day of the month
N is year, (A=2001, N=2014, etc)
GC is Gueuze Cuvée
Thus, the above date reads April 4, 2014.
