Bottle. Tart fruity aroma. Hazy golden yellow body, small white head. (Where do other reviewers get "dark amber"? Does the body color change over time?) Flavor is very tart, yeasty, unripe fruit, vinegar. Complex sour finish. Very refreshing.

0,7l Bottle: Red colour, witha red head. Aroma of citrus,fruits, flowers,sournes in the end. Flavor is almost the same, a bit grape fruits too, and had a mild, smal body, nice fruity finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz green glass bottle with cork and crown cap. No date.
Appearance: Poured into Duvel chalice. Light white head that recedes quickly leaving a little lacing. Cloudy orange-tan, like iced tea with lemonade. Some sediment, but not a lot.
Nose: Sour fruit esters. Sour pear, wild lilies, wheat, hot river rocks, minerals, and a little doghair or horsehair smell.
Palate: Intensely sour! Wow! I’ll continue my earlier analogy about iced tea with lemonade...except it’s more like lemonade discolored by iced tea. Light bodied with a little, quick, carbonation. Flavors of lemon juice, pear, granny smith apple, pine (cut wood), lemon zest, lime zest.
Notes: Really sour! Did not expect that from the same company that provides us with sticky-sweet candy beers. The body is a little lacking in texture, but still, this is probably the best beer they make (that we get here).

750 ml. corked. Intensely carbonated. I could hardly pour the darn thing without it spilling over. Rocky, frothy head. Clear orange in body color. Aroma of yeast, tartness, sweet, citrus, and some sourness. Flavor is sweet, tart, sour, citrus, and grapefruit. Acidic, medium body, dryish. I drank this bad boy during the LOST season 5 premiere. Good stuff.

(Sample Date: 11/30/2008 Source:Other) Sampled at 3rd Annual Richmond Industry Gathering. 1994. Very dry and sour with light fruity aroma and lots of oak. Spritzy with light body and medium mouth feel. Finish was quite dry, fruity and sour. Wonderful beer.

Crushed with Jakebra. Decent. Much more subtle than others. Some cherry in there and awesome sourness. Not spectacular but definitely decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
3.75 Bottle. Strong sour aroma as the beer was being poured into the glass. Aroma was sweet honey and lemon juice. These aromas carry through into the flavour but without the sweetness and also a slight orange peel character. Mouthfeel was sour with a slight soapy finish and again very dry. I didn’t get the barnyard character others have described, this can increase as the bottles get older so perhaps I had a younger bottle (no date that I could see)The best Lindemans beer I have had and would def drink it again.

Aroma was apple and vinegar, but surprisingly nice. Flavor was sour apple, funky yeast and finished dry. Very good!

Maybe the best gateway Gueuze out there. Did not expect much from a Lindemans, but this one surpassed my expectations. Lemons, cheese, and funk. Nice notes of earthiness, straw, and apples. Dry and sweet, but not sticky. Fairly impressive, especially considering where it comes from. Tasty.

This one is definitely high on the sour scale...which I like. Extremely funky, tart, lemony blue cheese aroma rises above a well carbonated 24 karat pour. Solid white head for the style and significant lacing. Very earthy and mouth puckering flavor with hints of Granny Smith apples, lemon zest, and orange peel. Medium mouthfeel. A good example of the style but not for the faint of heart.
