head, which lasts fairly well, and leaves reasonable lacing. Funky sourness in the aroma is offset by sweeter, fruity raspberry notes. Lemon sourness up front gives way to a sweeter raspberry flavour. Grainy malt and a more reserved sour flavour come into the mid-palate, with leather and a woody sour flavour in the finish. This is not the most complex gueuze around, but it does have a decent balance between sour and sweet flavours, and is both easy to drink and quite enjoyable.

Bottle. First lambic/geuze ever. Bottle states 5% alcohol instead of the four percent mentioned here. Pours hazy dark golden, bronze even. Little yeast residue. Tiny head that disappears in seconds. Aroma of champagne, unripe red fruits and sour. Taste caught me off guard, but within a minute I got accustomed to the taste and boy it’s good. Hits the palate exactly like champagne. Then, unripe fruits, sourness, dryness and some sweetness comes in. Plenty of carbonation and oily. Very refreshing. Aftertaste is long. Dry and sour. Some sweet and sour remain for a long time and induces excessive saliva build-up. This is a style I’d like to explore.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Milky light yellow colour with low head and medium to thin body. Nose of kimchi. Taste of sour stuff (can’t really name it), light Belgian yeast, raspberry vinegar, lactid acid and unripe berries. It was strange at first but when it got air and tempoerature (and when I got used to it) it got better and better. Enjoyed it a lot in the end. Quite refreshing and quaffable.

Once again Lindemans wins an evening. Starting of with a fruity and fresh nose with some citrus fruits in the aroma you can continue with a milky look of a special beer. Tastes quite sour - the first sip maybe a bit tough. But when you get used to it it scores in the taste and refreshes you immediately. A solid Geuze for sure.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: amber/blonde beer, small unstable head.
Nose: lots of caramel, some grains. But the sugary aspect is overruling. Very little citrus noticeable.
Taste: lots of sugar, little sourness. Reminds me of a Faro beer more than a geuze, but i’m not really a Faro fan...

Décidément, les Gueuse c’est pas fait pas mon truc !
Déjà, le simple fait de ne pas avoir de col est un gros moins pour cette bière. Ensuite ces arômes de fruits sures voire de vinaigre, c’est pas la joie. Et en bouche c’est l’acidité qui domine.
