A golden hue sets off the wonderful almost champagne like taste.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2011
Enjoyed from a 750ml bottle in a stemless wine glass. The beer pours a straw-colored yellow/golden hue, with an ample white head. The nose shows decided Brettanomyces character, along with a less aggressive level of acidity. As the sample opens up, a musty note also comes through, perhaps from the corked packaging. Together, the combination is utter and absolutely pleasing. The palate shows a lactic tart note up front, followed by some pleasing grassy/hay/farmhouse Brett character, and an absolutely bone-dry finish. The melange of pleasing flavors and aromas is outstanding. Carbonation is assertive, but not overly so, supporting the aromas and flavors, rather than detracting from them. The finish is nicely tart, leathery, and dry. Overall, an outstanding example of the style, even if it is widely available.

Mainuh_man (145) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
0.375L bottle. Pours clear golden with a rocky white head that dissipates quickly. Fairly standard geuze aroma profile: sour apple, minerals (chalk), skunky, basement aromas. Beer goes almost immediately to sour, with puckering apple flavors, earthy and woody notes. Long, dry, sour finish that makes my mout water. Medium-light body with a slick mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, a good representative of this style. Nice, dry character with relatively mild sour notes.

adamnowek (69) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2014
Quite sour and barnyard-like. Smells a bit like wet lumber, which is not a term I’ve ever used in a beer context. Not incredible but still highly drinkable.

bailif (6) - POLAND - SEP 27, 2014 does not count
wysokonasycone, z biala bardzo trwala piana, prawie klarowne jezeli odstoi w pionie dlugo, smak kwasny nieco szampanski, niedojrzale jablka, cytryna, aromat cytryna i stajnia, wyraznie "dzikie", mysle ze anglosasi maja dobre okreslenie - funky.

ClubGonzo (4056) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange body with a small white head. Nose is red fruits, vinegar, citrus, cellar mold, mild stable tones and hints of wine gum, hay and wine cork. Taste is moderate citric tones, hay, straw, pale malts, stable funk and hints of vinegar, wine cork and moist cellar. Slightly watery, thin palate, high, near-fizzy carbonation. Enjoyable, but not quite comparable to geuzes from Cantillon or 3F. A shame they don’t release their unblended (and undiluted) lambic; had a sample at the brewery on last year’s Tour de Geuze and it was really marvellous.

JDBaker11058 (1282) - Maryland, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Appearance: clear brassy amber, short, fizzy off-white head, active carbonation. Aroma: big tart and sour nose of white vinegar, green apple, some damp oak, and a bit of funk reminiscent of brettanomyces. Taste: sour green apples, light balsamic, hint of leather, wheat toast, lemongrass, light marmalade. Finish: champagne-dry, slightly acidic and tart, balanced by sweet apples and a bit of cracker. Notes: A very nice gueuze, reminds me of a gose with a fuller body. Surely the styles are related. As usual, Lindemans does not disappoint.

-Backlog- Vintage 2012. Pours hazy golden with white head. Huge aroma of fruity brett and oak. Fruity palate. Aftertaste is also loads of fruit and some funk. Overall: An excellent example of the style. Probably the best gueuze i have tried.
