3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Souvenirs du Terroir Gueze] A classic Gueuze. Not too sour and not too sweet. Very good balanced with interesting notes of oak and green apples.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Honeyish, perfumy, lightly floral aroma, with some tart green grape fruitiness. Hazed medium golden color, playful head fed by copious effervescence. Tart, fruity beginning, turning toward sweet and malty, apparent wheat malt and some light herbal, earthy tones. Feathery body and bubbly mouthfeel. Lingering tartness. Pleasant and a good choice for someone looking to "get into" lambics.

Very interesting. Sour, yes, but not overwhelmingly so. Very wheaty and malty once the sourness subsides. And the flavor of oak absolutely permeates this beer. Quite a bit sweeter and not as sour as I expected. Overall pretty enjoyable though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flavor is that of soured hay, but in a moist, refeshing, slap-the-horse's-ass, sort of way. Definitely an interesting foray into the world of gueuzes.

My first Lambic style Belgian ale, it pours a slightly cloudy, dull orange color with a small white head that lingers. Strongly sweet, tart, and fruity aroma with hints of yeast, peaches, and apricots. Medium bodied, medium carbaonation, the flavor is slightly sour and tart with a lingering sweet finish. Very interesting taste, somewhat champagne like. A little sweet for my tastes, but that is a personal bias.

Sour fruit aroma, opaque peach/apricot colour, with a medium vanilla custard head. Full sour/sweet berry flavour, followed by a pleasant woodiness. Tart, excellent mouth feel. A fine Gueuze.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2003 Cloudy orange, fine lacing. Fruity and sour. Pretty refreshing, but not very complex.

Not as impressive as the other Lindemans. Had a semi-sour taste with a backblow that was mildly like cool mint mouthwash.

Different but not nearly my favorite Lambic or product from Lindemans.
