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...

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.

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.
