Lindemans Gueuze Cuvée René is a highly sparkling golden beer with a thick, fluffy, slightly yellowed white head that has outstanding retention and leaves excellent lacing on the glass. The aroma is quite powerful and carries notes of funk, cheese, horse blanket, cave and mud. It is light bodied, fluffy and bubbly on the tongue. The finish is crisp and dry. It is very sour, musty and funky, with no noticeable sweetness. There are notes of champagne, bleu cheese and hay. It’s a very bretty affair. The finish is full of green apples. It is tart through and through. What a unique beer!

Pours a light copper with white head. Nose is very sour with light fruit and musty. Flavor is very tart up front, but suddle bits of orange start to open up with a touch of sweetness before the bottom drops out to a very dry finish. The flavor just keeps drawing you back for more and more.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - DEC 22, 2008
hazy pale orange gold (lightened orange pekoe iced tea) with a short lived agitated white head.

the aroma is very dusty/cement/mineral/stony with notes of pale malty sweetness, grass, flowers, blossom honey and some cinnamon-y spiciness.

the palate is very tart, almost eye watering (more so than i ever would have expected given the reputation of the flavored stuff from this brewery) but there is a respectable amount of malt to keep it quaffable and yet refreshing. there are flavors of stone, grass and bloomy white mold (in a pleasant way) with a lemony sour finish. an aftertaste of dust and must lingers for a bit. thin mouth feel is dry and parching along with a prickly mouth feel from the tartness. it gets a bit "milky" thick in the back of the throat.

it is not as funky as others but it is clean and refreshing. this is much better than i could have ever imagined. at the price i will always have this on hand... 8/4/8/4/18/4.2

Cloudy orange with rapidly evaporating head. Aroma of orange peel and vinegar. Nice sourness with apple and lemon, dry finish. A keeper.

djtimeless (222) - Colorado, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Pours out gold with lots of white foam. Taste is sweet with a little funk. Lighter sour taste than some other Gueze. However this is a very drinkable lambic. With its low acid and tasty sweetness you keeps drinking it down. Great price too.

UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 Aroma is similar to a dry white wine, not really champagne like, more stinky... more Pinot Grigio. This has a musty taste, not too musty mind you. It is also sour, not too sour mind you. Basically this has all the refreshing light pleasantries of a traditional Gueuze without too much funk, without too much horse. Take from that what you will, I prefer a little bit harder a lambic, but this is tasty. I like that this has become more available in my area.

pours a medium gold with a quick white head. Aroma is very earthy and musty. Very dry body, green apple, earthy yeastiness. sourish dry finish. Very drinkable.

This was officially the first beer I’ve ever needed a corkscrew to open. Pours a slightly hazy light gold color (actually much like the label) with a thick head. Lovely dusty citrus aroma - tart oranges and grapefruit meet a musty barnyard funk. Flavor has a good tang, but isn’t as vibrant as the aroma. A subtle leafy, almost herbal note kicks in, and accents the tart fruits to make it seem like a liquid citrus grove. Slightly dilute, possibly just undercarbonated, and with a surprisingly oily palate - this one doesn’t wash clean. It leaves an aftertaste of bitter citrus (lemon) rind. I like it quite a bit - it’s very easy to drink, and refreshing all around... it just seems like it’s lacking a bit of vibrance.

750ml at Hamiltons in SD. Very nice sour, great low alc brew also. Complex nose of brett / barnyard, white fruit. Balanced sour, not too much and not too little. Very easy to drink and really good with food. Also very very nice price!
