My first gueze. Sour apple and vinegar aroma. Also a smell of wet paint? Slightly vegetal aroma as well. Not terrible, still has the dominant vinegar sour flavor, which somewhat overpowers others. I think this is an acquired style, which I will need to sample more often in order to appreciate the subtle flavors besides the sour. My limited experience with sours makes most of these beers taste the same. I guess my palate just hasn’t adjusted. I’m still willing to give these more tries. Maybe my wife would like them as she normally likes things that taste sour.

I liked this but it was not nearly as sour as I hoped. Sour aroma; no mistaking this as a lambic. Wheat in the flavor; some pine, horseblanket and other weird yeasty flavors that I can’t nail down. Considerable carbonation, and light orange color.

Pours a hazy golden amber. Nice dusty sweet nose with hints of tart cherry. The flavor packs one hell of a punch for this brewery that produces a lot of sweet. This is the balancer for all those sweet lambics. Nice tart cherry feel with good carbonation, and a great creamy finish to the tongue drying acidity.

This one was a bit different for me...The taste and aroma were both sour (duh!), but there was somethgin else in there, and I just couldn’t nail it down. Maybe some funk?

gahl06, bottled. murky golden with some large bubbles. a salty, briney aroma that suggested olives and capers and a hint of muesli bars. surprisingly restrained flavour-wise, only hints of funk and some lemon sherbet sweetness. quite good

Stine (1657) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2007
Golden creamy white in color. Aromas of softly hot white pepper and sour green apple give way to a more gently sour flavor than others of its type. Orange, honey, and a burst of lime. Surprisingly rich and full of complexity.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - FEB 10, 2007
At the 2007 Big Beer, Belgians, & Barleywines Festival in Vail. Pours light yellow with no head. The aroma of an 8th Grader’s gym socks. Sure, it has a battery acid flavor, but the acidic level is not insane like many of this style. Actually, quite good. Woody, earthy oakiness builds up after you have saturated your sour taste receptors and start discerning other flavors in this.

TheBeerLover (1026) - DC Metro Area, USA - FEB 9, 2007
750 ml bottle, Pours to a hazy, pale golden color, with a rocky, white head that fades, and a lively carbonation. The nose on this beer is excellent, with lots of fruity esters of apple, sour fruit, hints of oak, and yeast. The palate is tart and refreshing on the plate, with good flavors of wheat, sour apple, vinous flavors, and hints of oak. This beer finishe with more wheat, fruit, and oak up front, then ends with a bone dry sourness that lingers. Excellent example of gueuze, that makes a fantastic aperitif beer. One of Lindemans most impressive beers, and my personal favortie.

Poured a golden straw color with a moderate white head which quickly dissipated and left behind just a few small bubbles. Aroma was musty, woody, and just slightly fruity... very interesting and mysterious. Flavors were pungent and powerfully acidic. Sour apples, unripened cherries, and unripened grapes, along with an interesting musty woodiness and something like rotten (fermenting) fruits. Mouthfeel is light and juicy and finishes extremely astringent and dry. This beer made my mouth water after each sip, making me want more and more. Great stuff. I can’t believe there was a time when I couldn’t tolerate these kinds of beers...
