Lindemans Cuvée René 5.5% This 375ml bottle was a gusher that settled a mellow honey gold with a think head & leaves some soapy looking lacing behind. My initial whiff had me thinking of cinnamon candy hearts. On closer examination I get some hay, barnyard funk, a bit of candy & cinnamon that overlays lactic tart lemon character. Med-full bodied with a roundish effervescence & dry finish. The taste is much less complex than the Hanssens. Mid-level lime tartness, salty, mineral, a bit of soft light malts. The aftertaste is lemon-lime & salt. Very approachable and deftly done. I see it as a good entry level Oude Geuze for lambic newbies. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JBPortland (1369) - Portland, Maine, USA - DEC 4, 2015
Somehow never rated this one, one of my first introductions to sour and funky beers back when. Have had many bottles ranging from good to great, with a couple sub-par on rare occassions. Very reliable beer and a fantastic value. The profile is consistent with nice soft funk, green apple, toast wood spice, some skunky herbs, light grassyness, orange and lemon, low-medium tartness. Finishes fairly dry with some stonefruit sweet notes, toasty wood, white bread crust, some oaky spice, barn and hay, lemon, sour apple, orange. A classic.

butelka, okolo rok po rozlewie. prawie klarowne, bardzo jasno bursztynowe piwo, z wysoka, szampanska, syczaca piana, ktora blyskawicznie opada. Aromaty - jest niewatpliwie stajni conieco. jest tez owocowosc cytrynowo-jablkowa. nieco winnych aromatow. w ustach ewidentnie kwasne + to co w aromatach, moze ciut jakichs drewnianych nutek. wysokie wysycenie co2. malo ciala. est lekka goryczka. posmaki cytrynowe, az slinianki pracuja dzielnie. taninowe sciaganie. dobre, choc nie w moim guscie.

Hallstein (393) - Skogn, NORWAY - NOV 28, 2015
Aroma has sweet and sour apricot, peach, slight barnyardy funk and maltyness. Flavor is nicely sour, but not overly so. Peaches, stonefruit and grapes dominate the flavor. Some slight green apple. Delicious.

ForlornHope (286) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2015
Bottle at home in a tumbler. Pours a yellow-orange colour with a small, fairly dense off-white head. Not as aromatic as some other gueuzes, but the dusty lemon funkiness is there. Taste is superb, lemony, tart and slightly sweet. Well carbonated, spritzy and very refreshing. Extremely enjoyable and drinkable.

Mooie kleur met kleine schuimkraag. Mooi zurig bier, toch heel zacht. Beetje champagneachtig, heerlijk.

guzzler67 (1615) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Appearance of rose wine with a small white head and very little lacing. Unique, funky, vinous aroma with hints of green apple, cheese, wood, lemon peel and leather. Tart, acidic flavors of dried fruit and damp cellar. Sour aftertaste. Medium bodied mouthfeel with lively carbonation and a lingering finish.

Väldigt frisk och syrlig. Härligt blommig doft och ljus grumlig. En perfekt fördrink för den som tröttnat på vin.
