4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 @GBF 2011 – poured from an emptied, glass water bottle (certainly a first for me): hazy orange with no head, smell is lots of funky peach & some horse blanket, taste is lots of slightly tart peaches & lots of lactic bacteria, slightly tart aftertaste, horse blanket, more or less flat, great stuff /// upped the score for this one from 4.4 to 4.6 - not because I retried it but quite a few lambic latter, I still remember this as being one of the fines pure lambic’s I have had so far

Draught at the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. Cloudy variegated golden color. Aroma of pear and subtle vanilla. Taste is very dry, very sour, sweaty feet, cobwebs, attic, horse. Neat stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2012 This lambic was about a year old, so I’ll rate it as jonge lambic. Litre swing top bottle, poured by the friendly brewer from one of his wooden casks. Faded orange color, absolutely no head. Light citrus and raspberry aroma. Very pleasant but not as assertive as many other lambics. Medium bodied, but still a touch of wateriness. Very soft taste with just a touch of sourness. Citrus rules, but there are also other flavors. Some wood, milk, butter, grapes, raspberry. The complexity is there, but there could be a touch more character. Nevertheless a treat and a really great beer.
Sample tasted in august 2012: Vinegar in the aroma. Traubenzucker. Sour, sulphury flavor.

Tour de Geuze 2007, draught at brewery. Superb full bodied lambic, tart but not sour, really refreshing. Amazingly competent given that it seems 99% of this breweries beer is fermented in metal conicals with a spade full of wood chips for flavour.

The unblended ’flat’ Lindemans lambic, earthy, sweaty, a bit smoky and funky but elegant and refined, with a cloudy straw blonde colour. Renowned for its high quality in lambic world and as such used by several geuze blenders; it’s a shame Lindemans does hardly anything else with it but covering it up with sugar and fruit extracts in most of their commercial products. But then there is still their Cuvée René, of course.

Draught Fully hazy orange-ochre beer, no trace of a head. Very slightly smoked, like a lightly smoked German beer from the lagertank. Sweet, liquorice, hay, garden herbs aromas. Worts taste, very young, cloverflowers; surprisingly little sweetness in the taste, rather grainy (milk-ripe wheat). On the lips, however, already some lemon. Reasonably full-bodied, a bit chewy, ending drier and lighter. Typical young, even worts-like lambic, exhibiting both signs of "usual" beer, as from spontaneously fermenting beer.
