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, Id say.

Moja ocena jest mocno subiektywna gdyż to pierwszy labik jakiego piłem. W armoacie bardziej przypomina wino niż piwo, ewidentne nuty winogronowe (owoce) oraz trochę końskiej derki. Myślę że dobre piwo dla kogoś kto właśnie zaczyna przygodę z tego typu piwami.

eduardovl (866) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
250ml bottle served in a chalice. A: Pours an orange clear color forming a small white to yellow head. Small retention and only very few lacings left. Some particles can be seen floating around. A nice looking beer S: Very fruity as expected. Quite sweet and bready too. Sweet grains. Some tartiness can be felt in the nose. No hops T: Sweet upfront. Sweet grains and fruits. Apples, mainly. A metallic and rusty taste. A mild acid taste, in overall. No hoppy bitterness. Intense lambic yeasts M: Light body. Intense fizzy carbonation. Sour aftertaste O: Good drinkability. A very easy Gueuze. Much more sweet and less tarty than the classic Gueuzes but still a pleasant Belgian beer [ BA Review @ 6/9/2012 ]

"i gotta say, i think Lindemans forte is the fruit flavors. having this one on its own, it was a bit of a letdown. Im a fan of sours, but this was just wasnt anything special. A little sour/rotten apple quality, a little sweet, and too much carbonation, which was offset by the lack of a pleasant fruit aroma. I think Im only a fan of top-of-the-line Geuezes, and this one is just average..."

StilleStorm (760) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2014
DAA; Bottle 37, 5cl. Double corked, interesting. Pours clear dark golden with a fast fading, still lacing, off-white head. Nose fills with mould and cellar, sour, hay, fruit and spice. Taste is moderate to heavy sweet, sour, light bitter and warming with a short to moderate lasting, sour finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

tricksta_p (1197) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014
Aroma of sour fruits, sugar, white wine, light oak notes, slight funk. Flavour is sugary sweet and fruity sour. Okay, but I wish this was more sour and less sweet.

kermis (5433) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
Bottle at Rootz. Pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of horse blanket, dusty notes, wet dog, tart apricot, cobwebs and musty cellar. Flavour is light moderate sweet and moderate acidic. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

NikkTwist (1669) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 3, 2014
Draft at Eulogy. Clear medium amber pour that started with a large fluffy white head. Bit more sweet than sour. Berries and amber fruits. Plums. Strawberries. Apricots. Nectarines. Sour cherries. Duck sauce. Feels somewhat too syrupy and medicinal. Missing the unique funk and complexity found in the best gueuzes.
