3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...

Golden with rich a bit creamy white head, which fastly disapears. Sour fruity taste with certain bitterness later, sourness remains longer than bitterness.

2011 variety. Not a big sour guy, so rating just reflects my taste. Really funky smell. Taste is obviously sour. Earthy and cardboardy. Old tasting. Nice crisp palate. Not my style.

UPDATED: OCT 19, 2014 Nice gold-orange color with a good amount of fluffy foam. Fruitiness, a bit of funkiness, but not too much. Dry and sour, but not too distinct. Easily drinkable, better than expected! Not my favourite though.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear golden colour with a big and fluffy head! Aroma is quite strong. There is sourness and bitterness, green apples and sweet fruits too. Taste has lots of sweet fruits, citrus and surprisingly sweet taste but then turning into more sour and bitter with after taste. Medium body with medium carbonation. Great Gueuze from Lindemans.

"some green apple and a touch of green olive (which isn’t as nice) come out in the aroma and a little more in the flavor. While I like this one a bit more than their regular Geueze, it’s not one of my favorites. The flavor & body have to be spot on for me to like that much carbonation (although the everlasting thin head was pretty cool). OK."

750ml bottle served in a chalice.
A: Pours an slightly cloudy orange color forming a medium sized big bubbled head with low retention and some lingering lacings left in the glass
S: Strong fruity and Lambic perfume left in the air. Strong notes of peaches. Sweet malts. Notes of white grapes vinegar. Lambic-like yeasts. A bit metallic
T: Follows the nose. Sweet grains mixed with a strong fruity upfront. Strong notes of peaches, white grapes, vinegar. Sour but not extremely. In overall, a quite dry and funky taste. A bit metallic in the mouth too
M: Light body. Good carbonation. White grapes vinegar aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Classic Belgian fruity Lambic character. Classic

Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Drukket på dags hyttetur. Klar gylden farge. Tynn skumrand som forsvinner . Moderat karbonert. Smaker stikkelsbær, druestein, trefat, hvitvin. Moderat syrlig. Veldig god. Noe bitter ettersmak
