3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2012 (Bottle 25 cl) Comes as "’s Lands Souvenirs du Terroir Gueuze de Bruxelles". The label says 4% ABV. Dark golden, almost amber. Filtered, but yet it appears slightly hazy. Small, light, creamy head. A "commercial" (=sweetened) gueuze, which makes up for some of the sourness. But still sharp and acidic. And still unique. 200802

Pours a cloudy, orange body with a small head and lots of soda-like bubbles. Citrusy tart nose. Flavor is lemon sour-patch kids with a lot of sugar. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first Lambic. Very nice. Light orange collor with four or five small trails of bubbles. Looks like a cloudy champagne. Thick frothy off-white head that stayed and stayed. Fruity nose, fruity tart and smooth. Delicious but at $5.50/bottle I doubt I’ll frenquent this stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Delicious pale orange beer with minimum foam. Sweet fruitiness with some apple tartness. These beers are the easiest to drink. Great beer in many ways, though not as good as their other lambics. A little expensive, but a gift.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber w/ creamy, stable, off-white foam. Good lace. Sweet, caramel/brown sugar & tart apple aroma w/ yeasty, brettanomyces notes. Syrupy feel. Apple Betty-like flavour that is very sweet w/ notes of caramel, brown sugar, & Macintosh apples. Finish hints at the typical lambic dryness, but mostly is sweet & juicy w/ a slightly vinous character. Overall a very quaffable, easy to drink brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy gold with a medium-large white lasting head. Sweet aroma, light apples and fairy floss. Almost some brown sugar there too. Flavour is sweet, candi sugar, apples, with a citric slightly tart finish. Medium body, little tingle from the acidity. Not a bad gueuze, but not a great one either :)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
fizzy pour, airy head that quickly diminishes. wood, bread, apple aroma. immediately sweet and malty on the tongue then suddenly a welcome dry sour apple appears and then lingers as an aftertaste. it would be cool if there is a large caramel accent in this, but that’s alright, and i suppose that i like a more brutal gueuze...

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
golden-amber color. big foamy off-white head that leaves quickly. aroma is quite like the other fruit lambics by lindeman’s - sweet, yeasty, sour, and not much more. good carbonation, medium mouthfeel. very sweet and sour, slight yeast finish. more sweet and not as complex as I’d like a gueuze to be.
