3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
golden color, smells and tastes very similar to champagne or sparkling apple cider. has a nice sour apple taste to it. quite bubbly and easy to drink. not bad, but i wouldn’t buy it again. it’s good but it’s definatly not worth 11 bucks a bottle.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bottled 03
Hazy golden, fine pearling carbonation, lacing blanket head.
Metallic, rusty aroma hits first, underneath leather, earth, peach and berries.
Luckily the harsh metallic note is not as pronounced in the flavor - now it is more like spring water froma natural well - rust, sulphur - after that fruity notes are noticable - apple, kiwi - moldy hay, all blends well together to a harmonic whole.
Sparkly dry mouthfeel. Apple and iron aftertaste.

750 ml bottle--2003. My first Gueuze. Golden copper pour with a smallish head. Maintianed a small ring for the whole glass that continued to leave decent lacing. Aromas were sweet apple, pear, currant. Flavors were champagne like: vineous, tart, bubbly. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml - Aroma is yeasty, sweet champange, hops, and a bit of strawberry. Pours yellow with constant bubbles forming a nice creamy head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a bit more citrus and sour fruit. Palate is crisp, clean, and bubbley. A lot like champange but much more complex.

Poured golden yellow, slightly cloudy. Huge white foamy, bubbly head. Aroma smelled like sour fruit. Flavor equally as sour and fruity, hints of apple. Very clean and crisp aroma and taste, very refreshing. Medium mouthfeel, dry finish. No aftertaste. Carbonation good. This was an excellent choice for New Years eve 2005.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep golden with the small, characteristic fine white gueuze head. Acidic aroma, touch of of grape stones. Very dry indeed with lots of grape stone, lemon, hints of apricot. The greatest beer from Lindemans?

Sour/sweet aroma with a touch of barnyard, golden amber, pours a small custard head. Taste is mild fruit, with peach, apricot and lemon being most notable. Light bodied, sweet, and very refreshing. A real Treat!

Bottle at ’December at DougShoemaker’s 2005’ -- courtesy of mds. Pours a slightly cloudy orange-gold with a small fizzy white head. Aroma of sour fruit and wood. I found the sour and fruity flavour a little simple but it was still pretty good. A nice Lambic.

Bottle, Doug’s, Christmas 2005. Dark yellow, decent white head. Lovely musty aroma with hints of sourness. Really nice yeast and slightly sour taste. This small sample and rating does not do it justice, but I really enjoyed this well put together lambic and would love to have it again - fantastic.
