2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle poured into tulip. Pours a rather pure golden with some finger-thick head. Aroma is faint barnyard, green apples, some faint malt base and cider vinegar. Taste is really not the best I’ve had the chance to witness in a geuze or any type of sour ale, generally speaking...Very, very tart. Upon drinking it you soon notice that those green apple aromas are like...interrupted. You can perceive the apple’s tartness but then no sugar content at all...and it then fades away into not much. Mouthfeel is pretty watery with average carbo. Pretty long acidic aftertaste. Overall this is pretty weak compared to a Cantillon gueuze bio, for example, which is so way more complex...this is not "champagne" at all. I had medium-high expectations for this but it was a huge disappointment (especially at 13.99 $ a bottle at le St-Bock). I just wonder if I had a bad bottle, reading the rave reviews this brew had...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger of white head that dissipates quickly, light cloudy orange color. Aroma: peach, very light nuttiness, oak. Palate: light body, average carbonation, slight lasting bitterness on finish, very dry finish. Taste: medium sweetness, decent tartness, and what I can only assume is something unique to this style. Overall, first Gueuze Lambic, very different. I think it is something I could grow very fond of, but very different for a first try.

Poured from bottle procured from house of brews into pint. Beautiful and quintessential sour from Belgium. Not too vinegary / tart. Well balanced

Backlog. Medium to high in acidity with loads of green apples, citrus and funky barnyard aromas. Decent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Dranken Pauwels. Nice and fizzy and effervescent in the glass. Cloudy orange amber, has some bits of residue floating in it. Nose is sour, cheesy, farmyard, funky, horse blanket, lemon citrous, Champagne yeast, green apple, white wine vinegar, cider. It’s very rich and full flavoured. Taste is sour, green apples, cheesy feet, funky, lemon citrous, farmyard, cider. Nice combo of sweet and sour. Probably the funkiest lambic I’ve ever had. It’s light and Champagne like but with a cider, apple juice body.

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.

Very sour flavor but delicious and light. Aroma is a bit off. Appearance is clear with no head.
