MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - OCT 19, 2009
Bottle 375ml. Aged 18 months piror to tasting. Poured cloudy golden with a large, foamy, off-white head which was mostly lasting. Strong notes of funky wild yeast in the aroma with barnyard notes, forest floor notes, wet grain, lemon juice, lemon zest and vitamin C. Flavor was of acidic fruit with sour grain, wild yeast, moss, barnyard notes, petrified wood, tart green grape skins and cumquats. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, a dry/tart mouthfeel and a good length finish.

VamboladeTolly (181) - Tartu, ESTONIA - NOV 22, 2014
Pours amber color with frothy white head. Aroma is sour, raw apple, some yeast. Taste is heavy sour but with background sweetness, raw apple again, some spicyness. Good beer if you want something different sometimes.

lbianchi66 (14) - FRANCE - NOV 15, 2014
Robe cuivrée, légèrement opaque. Saveur aigre-douce plutôt bien équilibrée (plus douce que la plupart des lambics). Arômes pomme et poire dominants Le point négatif est l’arrière goût (honnêtement, je ne saurais le qualifier autrement que "vomi"). Au final, une lambic plutôt bonne.

edsspoon (497) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle - deep hazy amber with a short lived fizzy white head. Aroma of malts, dust and hay. Taste of apple, pear and some light sourness with a light malty base. Some hints of lemon and honey. In all honesty it has an unfortunate taste of vomit to it. Medium body, low carbonation.

GuideDogSaint (418) - Xiamen, CHINA - NOV 12, 2014
250ml bottle from Beer Station, Xiamen. Pours hazy golden with no head. Typical gueuze aroma. Tastes sweeter than most gueuze but still a sour finish.

TheCametron (1863) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle out on the balcony for what turned in to a Lambic party. Pours hazy Golden with a short lived White head. There’s reasonable sourness counterbalanced by an unpleasant sweetness. I like my Geuze bone dry. This wasn’t for me.

Marszal95 (29) - POLAND - OCT 23, 2014
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 (917) - 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 ]

slowrunner77 (6019) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
"i gotta say, i think Lindemans forte is the fruit flavors. having this one on it’s own, it was a bit of a letdown. I’m a fan of sours, but this was just wasn’t 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 I’m only a fan of top-of-the-line Geueze’s, and this one is just average..."

Gorm (1376) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 11, 2014
Klar gyllen farve med lyst skum. Lukt av syrlig frukt. Smak av syrlig frukt. Søt og syrlig ettersmak som sitter lenge. Vinmonopolet.
