Sugar Bowl. Pours a generally clear golden amber color with a thin whisky white head that settles slowly to virtually nothing. Aroma is sweet and fruity with notes of ripe fruit, fresh flowers, spice, some grass, hay and yeast notes. Flavor is tart and fruity with a slick mouthfeel. Notes of ripe tart fruit, some citrus, and faint honey and spice flavors as well. Generally light bodied with a fruity tart finish. Really enjoyed this one!

3 year old bottle - thanks GT2 (pretty sure this was you). Poured a straw yellow color with a medium sized white head. Aroma was some light grassy notes, lots of sweet malts, tartness certainly there. Flavor was sweet malts, lots of sugary notes. Funky notes, highly drinkable but a touch sugary. Will need to check this out fresh.

I’m totally new to lambic beers, but this was quite enjoyable to drink. Fresh and interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 8/18/2012. Grassy, malty aroma. Mostly boring taste, mild sourness, not much gueuze-y awesomeness. Pouring in dregs helps, but there's still too much malt and not funky enough.
Not bad I guess. Better than the shelf Boon gueuze, yet Cantillon crushes it. At least it isn't sweet like the other Lindemans "lambics" are.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
07/05/2013 Bir&Fud Bottega (375ml bottle, best before 2015). Dorata, opalescente, torbida, schiuma bianca abbondante, discretamente persistente. Al naso sentori di lieviti selvatici, note citriche, vinose e di botte, davvero interessante. In bocca ha un acido un po’ grezzo, per nulla eccessivo, forse manca un po’ di secchezza. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione media. Davvero niente male questa gueuze, anche considerando il prezzo bassissimo!

Nose is vinegar, cheese, vinous. Taste is tart, straw, green apple, slight horseblanket. Mouthfeel is full and carbonated. A good to middling lambic, it had many of the key features, but not pronounced enough

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Probably the most commonly available oude gueuze on the Belgian market which makes the disappointment of it’s taste and palate all the harder to take. It’s simply not at the standard of the other gueuzes that can be foind with a bit of effort.

Pours dark yellow with a lasting head. Aroma of malt, banana, grapefruit and cloves. Taste is similar with cloves, earth and cheese. Full bodied with a nice palate. Not as funky as I thought it would be.
