3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A little over a year from bottling. Pours hazy hay/straw with a small head. Nose is sour apple, raspberry, funk, barnyard. Taste is sour on the front, with lemon/lime note, sour apple, a little plant bitterness, lemon rind, a sweetness on the end, also a barnyard funk at the end. Very good widely available sour. Not artificially sweetened liked other lindemanns , I wish they'd do more like this.

Very unique beer. Hard to decipher if I actually like it. Very sour but in a good way.

Beautiful pour, surprisingly nice head for a lambic that diminishes as expected. Cloudy bright amber. Great breadth and brightness on the initial palate, gradually shifting to a slightly aggressive astringent bitterness. Characteristic lambic fruit flavors are expressed mainly in sourness.

La Cuvée Rene tiene una espuma blanca consistente, mucha retención y buena carbonatación.
Su color es dorado y su cuerpo ligero, con aroma complejo y frutal basado en manzana y uva verde.
En boca se aprecia una intensa acidez seguida de un sabor agrio, acompañado de sabor a cidra de manzana, champagne y jugo cítrico.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a stange and tulip.
In the stange, the body seems a bit lighter in color closer to a lighter side of orange tinted yellow. The tulip produces a darker hazier orange colored body (weird, ok, I wonder if this is normal) anyways, both have the same sized head - about a finger’s worth of white foaminess leaving some thick foamy lacing clinging to the sides of both glasses.
The smell is extremely tart and sour, but I guess this is how its supposed to be. Well, I do get some lemon/cherries/raspberry/orange trying to come through in an extremely sour way.
The taste is tart and sour once again through the previously mentioned flavors.
On the palate, its a light to medium, tries to display some sort of sessionability, but still there’s an element of a fuller quality. Carbonation hits me a bit harder than some other lambics but from what I’ve read and my lack of knowledge in this style - I guess that’s ok.
Overall, honestly, I think I’m only doing this so I can say I’ve tried a gueuze, other than that, I don’t see myself coming back to this as I’m not a true "sour" fan.

Pours a slightly hazy orange color with off white head. Huge barnyard funky horse blanket aroma with a hint of citrus. Very nice tart and citrusy tangy flavor with more barnyard funky flavors.

Brilliant amber pour. Nose of light funk, bright lemon citrus, mild lime, fruit skin and leather. Flavor is sour citrus and leather with more fruit skin and wheat/vanilla oak finish. Moderately dry with lingering leather and fruit skin, lightly bitter. Fresh.
