Bottle. The pour was a clear golden orange with a huge (3-4 finger) white pillowy head that reduced to a thin cap which lasted throughout and had fair light spotty lacing. The aroma was of a funky barnyard Belgian yeast and some light grain malts with notes of citrus (lemon), green apple, pears and a mild white grape winey odor. The taste was sour yet still slightly sweet with hints of apple and pear early on, but quickly became very sour with a slight acetic taste taking over. It also possessed notes of yeast and citrus with a mild white wine presence at the end. The flavor lasted a nice long while, with a fruity tart taste left lying on the taste buds. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a very strong champagne like carbonation. Overall a good tart fruity brew with a nice sweet sour ending...

Corked bottle poured. Pours a light golden color with a really nice, sour apple aroma. Sweet and sour fruit flavors. A little green apple. Light. Really nice tart finish. Definitely champagne like, but very much in a good way. Enjoyed this a lot.

Aroma: citrus, a bit of sharp sourness Appearance: golden, sparkling, frothy head at pour, light sustained head Taste: medium bitterness, medium sourness, has a sharpness balanced between the two flavours, bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. Palate: light body, fizzy, bitter, Overall: the taste despite its bitterness is relatively inoffensive, not my usual choice for beer, but not bad.

aleigator (204) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 18, 2014
Golden, amber color, with a huge, froth head. Very tart nose, lots of acidity with green apple peel and musty, leathery yeast. Somehow fruity with a complex tartness, very rich in aromas. Lighter in body than expected, with a decent tart complexity and very high, refreshing carbonation. Carbonation somehow overlocks the acidic sourness, finishing with a dry, slick aftertaste. Lime and apple sourness hit the palate in a dry but pleasant, uncomprimising way. Requires alomst room-temperature to reveal its sour, fruity layer, but starts to get really convincing then. Still, finish is defined by metallic hints and sour brett flavors, a bit watery, then ending quite tart.

Clear golden with little to no head, almost looks like apple juice. Aroma is light, a little fruity. Flavor is dry and sweet. A little tart in the finish. Wife: 3.9

kevd193213 (874) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle. Deep dirty yellow pour with a medium off white head. Aroma of sour apples, yeast, basement aromas, hay, and citrus notes. Easy drinking with a delayed snappy sour finish.

An easy geuze to start with. Beautiful golden colour. Sour geuze taste with a little bit of basement aromas. Very good geuze, also for those who do not know this kind of beer.

A very good Gueze to start with, sour enough, but balanced. very complex taste which might need some training at first :)

Alengrin (1350) - BELGIUM - AUG 10, 2014
The traditional geuze Lindemans, bearing this name since 1996. Crisp, crackling, yellowish white, strongly moussy and stable foam, golden blonde colour with orange hue, clear but misty after adding deposit. Bit subdued aroma compared to most other oude geuzes, but delicate, with the typical hints of lemon zest, hay, sulphur, wine vinegar, old sherry and fruity esters. Sourish but mellow taste, refreshing grapefruit accent, vinous mouthfeel, drying in the finish, flowery, soft acidity. Not the most agressive geuze, but certainly a delicate, refined and refreshing, honest example, in which the notorious high quality of Lindemans’ lambic comes to full glory.

Clear golden. Thin white head. Fizzy. The usual gueuze notes, but this is one for the beginner lambic lover. Not that complex.

Ik vind geuze normaal gezien lekker, maar dit was het toch niet. een tegenvaller.
