jetzler (622) - oklahoma city, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 27, 2007
Bottle, Flute, pours cloudy with a nice fluffy head, Very nice tart aroma, some light malts, a bit of fruit perhaps strawberries of the most faint sorts touch with a slight mild apricot. Good, very nice a tart but finishes quite dry, very easy to drink, tart somewhere between a lemon and a lime, but in no way bitter. Should have bought a 750ml its quite nice. Some light notes of straw and hay. Well structured aroma. I like this and its my first Gueze, I am interested in tring more.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 Bouquet includes some unique scents like rose hips, lemon rind and bone. Clean and abrupt, dry finish. A little watery and therefore easy to drink. Not very sour at all, mainly dry. Very nice easy lambic.

jgentgesdo (682) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Pours beautiful apricot, opaque, with a thin white head that quickly dissipates. Nose is sharp apple, pear, and musty barnyard notes. The flavor is initially cheesy, yeasty, funky, and quite sour. It trails off into a citrus sweetness. Fairly thin mouthfeel. Yum yum.

mtoast (336) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 13, 2007
75cL 1994 Vintage, from old notes. Pours a deep blond color with rocky white foam, great retention and lacing. Aroma is pungently sour, lots of citrus rind. Flavor is big, lots of sour, lots of oak. Was the first Gueuze I ever had (6? years ago) and still remains one of the better ones in my book.

milewide (1731) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - OCT 9, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2011 Tart and sour aroma and taste, with dry finish. Pale golden, cloudy color. Modest head. Sour and funk are an acquired taste, and I’ve grown to love this beer!

redlight (2317) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2007
cheers to boboski. Apple skins on the nose, sweet and tart smelling, hints of berries and some citrus. Pours blonde with a thick white head, that does not last. wow, what a huge flavor, tart and sour, lacto and pedio, with a good brett dryness, sour apples, sour citrus like kalamencie or kumquats. There is a nice sweetness toward the end, and it finishes off dry and crisp. Great gueuze!

Pours out a golden color with a nice ring of white carbonation. Aroma is very nice and complex with a sour,funky, yeasty smell. Some white grapes almost winelike because the aroma is so dry and pungent. Wonderful brew to smell. Taste is crisp, clean, and straight to the point. The most powerful flavor is the sourness of the beer however the acidic and sour attributes of the beer are not completely dominant as there is more white grapes in the taste as well that add a touch of sweetness to round it all out. Carbonation is high and prickly and works well with the thin mouthfeel of the beer. Well done, Lindeman’s best one for sure. Gueuze is impressing me more and more.

Bottle, 75 cl. Orange-golden color, white head. Aroma fruity, sweet and sour. Medium body. Taste is good sourness, complex, fruits, pleasant to drink. One of the best gueuze on earth, the best of Lindemans that’s sure.

LinusStick (3000) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2007
A nice mouth puckerer from a brewer who knows Lambics. Aroma of must, funk and "muffled citrus" if that makes any sense. Pour was a beautiful dark gold with loads of tiny bubbles and a two finger off white head. Taste was sharp and biting. Strong acidity with lemon and wood coming out. The strongly sour finish leaves a lump in the back of your throat. Each mouthfull is a ride. Nice.
