COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A golden hue sets off the wonderful almost champagne like taste.

Pours a cloudy orange yellow, with a fairly thick, foamy white head. Smell is big acidity and sourness as expected. Alot of orange and lemons working together. The taste is huge sour, really tart and quite lip puckering. The finish actually is somewhat smooth and easy to drink. Just a great lambic from this brewery. Good stuff.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 22, 2007
Bottled 04-05-06, Pours with an enormous head which fills most of the glass, but in time, the white, fluffy head settles to a drinkable amount over a orangy-golden color with some haze and plenty of effervescence. Head does leave a small amount the entire time with lacing that is sporatic but nice. Nose is great with a soft tart ness of lemons and overripe soured cherries, other notes of horse blanket, dusty yeast, and some wet woods; very nice. Flavor is more acidic and slightly acetic with light vinegar notes, sourness of lemon zest, and some tartness from overripe cherry pits; woody notes of oak and some wet cedar later in the flavor. Palate is moderately light, lively, and refreshing but ending quickly with a drying effect. Finishes quickly with some lemon zest, wet cedar, and a light bitterness. Only the second Gueuze I’ve had, but it’s a style that really grows on you the more you drink. The Girardin was more delicate with its soft tartnes in the taste and nose but this one carries less funk character and a more interesting nose. It’s too bad this style is note more commonly produced because it would be great for warm days or any champagne type celebration.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2007 2005, 750ml. pours hazy golden with little fizzy white head. nose has nice oak, tart, pretty funky, vinegar and lemon. flavor is nicely balanced with moderate acidity, oak, sour and tart, and lemon. finish is smooth, crisp, and very refreshing. this is joy to drink.4.1.

12/14/07, 2005 vintage, 750ml bottle. the aroma was a bit better than the flavor. a real solid oaky and sour nose but the flavor wasnt sour enough. a slight raspberry note running through it. still a very solid gueuze, but a 4.1. it is not and probably was never worthy of it. 3.9.

piscator34 (2031) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 21, 2007
Dark gold in colour with a bit of haze and a gentle carbonation. Aromas of wet cedar, sour lemon, and cherry pits. More lactic lemony sourness in the mouth, along with some mild woody astringency. As it warmed, a bit of a toungue coating cheese element revealed itself. Very drinkable and refreshing stuff. Not overly farmhouse-funky, but I find myself wanting to take larger sips.

gunsho (134) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 17, 2007
my favorite lindemans beer by far. the color was golden blonde with a thin white head. the tartness permeates the space around the beer first through the nose and then more prevalently in the taste. sweet grapes and tart apples mellow out into a long aftertaste that is remarkably subtle and balanced considering the initial reaction in the olfactory. with a champagne like feel this lambic is truly an experience.

beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2007
Belgian beer festival Brussels 2006: I absolutely hated this beer, so did my two friends. We asked the Lindemans guy for his favorite brew and this was it. I’m sorry but I hated it! On my list of beers I drank at the festival I have "Shite!" scrawled out beside this.

I cant fully describe this beer, since I have no idea what all I was tasting in the funk. The taste is mostly tart, and seems highly acidic. It looks like champagne but just a bit darker (more golden). The aroma is even funkier than the taste, overall a great beer, holing to try the Girardin soon.

Bottle sent to me by Andrew, thanks! Ive wanted to try this for quite a while, and for some reason it is not for sale around my part of the country - though I can buy all of the garbage Lindemans all day long. This one pours out a orange color with a white head on it. Smell is full of wood and sour lemon notes. Taste is light and refreshing, and full of carbonation. Very refreshing for the style. I could drink this any time of the year. A really nice lambic, proving that these guys can make something decent and not overly sweet after all.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - APR 8, 2007
Pours a golden bronze color. Smell and taste is reminiscent of a champage with sparkling grapes. Finish is sour/tart and somewhat try. Refreshing and delicous!
