kaiho (71) - - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle at home, labeled "foudroyante" with Lindemans listed as the brewer and bottler. Pours a clear dark amber with plenty of fizz, reminiscent of champagne. Slight bite of sourness on the nose, but quite thin on the mouth. Savory tastes of yeast and slight funk, but not strong by any means. Decent entry-level gueuze, I’d say.

FinnIckler (45) - GERMANY - SEP 27, 2016
Bottle from Vinum Tübingen. Pours clear golden with almost no head. Smell is apple, a bit acidic and citrus. Taste is not as sour as I anticipated. Clear notes of citrus, grapes, almost like white wine. This is actually quite nice in small quantities. Still a bit too sour for my taste.

caribou43 (588) - SWITZERLAND - SEP 16, 2016
I bought this bottle in a Franprix in Paris. I drank it yesterday at home, relax. The body is yellow and orange, high carbonation, thin foam. The taste is sour with a side of sweetness, the taste is a bit similar that " a chicha peruana de Catacaos". The taste is in the mouth a bit agressiv, it is particular but it is not bad.

Bottle as Gueuze Foudroyante. Light amber, clear, little head, high carbonation. Very sweet aroma, ok mouthfeel. Very sweet, apples - too sweet, just drinkable.

Ysok02 (1000) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 11, 2016
Robe ambrée, fine mousse. Un nez qui se rapproche enfin du lambic, une note de fût, pointe de levure. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, une belle tension, de l’élégance et une finale légèrement sucrée mais équilibrée et raffraîchissante.

Foffern (1682) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2016
Bottle at home. Two year old. The colour is clear dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of apricots, vinegar, apples, citric acid and barn yard. The flavour is surprisingly sweet with lots of apricots and fudge but still some sour citric undertones. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. A rather sweet take on a gueuze but easy-drinking and balanced.

Mortlach (1922) - Rome, ITALY - AUG 30, 2016
On tap @Buskers Pub (Rome). Pours clear golden with a medium white head. Aroma of barnyard, honey, balsamic notes, sugary. Flavour is medium to high sweet, light sour, sugary in the end. Medium body, light carbonation. More similar to a Faro, but ok.
