COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Breaking the mold among existing beer styles, Lindemans developed the Botanical Lambics, a collection of old gueuzes with a twist. Second in this series, BlossomGueuze is based on a blend of 12 months with 2 to 3 year-old lambic fermented in oak and elderflower. Refermented in the bottle, BlossomGueuze has a golden colour and combines the sourness of lambic with the subtle flavours of elderflower. Ideal as an aperitif, it is also perfect for food pairings.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2017 Købt på Lindemans bryggeriet. Frisk og funky aroma. Fin harmoni mellem det funky og det friske fra hyldeblomsterne. Smagen er først og fremmest sur med en tør finish. Efter et par slurke melder hyldeblomsten sig. Jeg brugte den som aperitif før en middag, og det vat den liiige lidt for vild til..

Bottle bought @ Etre IIRC. 2015 vintage. Hazy tiny burnt orange pour with a frothy white head. Very pleasant elderflower nose. Lemon, hay, dry soil, leather & barnyard. Sour, floral & tiny funky taste. Soft, dry & tart mouthfeel. Solid!

Grzesiek79 (4435) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 19, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2017 Vintage 2015. Bottle from Dyspensa in Radom. My bottle was 6% ABV, Fantastyczny zapach, czarny bez, zapach miodu rzepakowego, dorodne brzoskwinie. Wyglad to mocno musujace piwo o pomaranczowej barwie, blyskawicznie rosnaca piana i opadajaca takze szybko jak woda w wodospadzie Niagara. Lekko mgliste. Kapsel + korek, lakierowana butelka wiec oprawa wspaniala. Smak wytrawny bardzo vrzoskwiniowy, miodowy, ze spora dawka kwasu, smak cydru rzemieslniczego i wyczuwalny bez. Caly czas krazyly nad orginalna szklanka Lindemansa zapachy jakby perfum czy innych olejkow do kapieli. Wspaniale wspolgralo z bigosem tradycyjnym zrobionym na dosc kwasno. Wspanialy objad kwaskowy, polecam

A 750ml bottle, bottled in September 2015. Poured into a Lindemans flute glass. It was a clear golden colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some nice lacing. Aromas of elderflower and lychee jelly with hints of oak. Tastes sour, oak, herbal, funk, white wine, grape, elderflower and lychee. Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, elderflower and lychee… I was curious. When I did a search of “elderflower smells like…” lychee actually popped up automatically for me, so clearly someone did the same search as I did. This was all the more interesting since even though I’ve also tried Mamouche, I still had no idea what elderflower was supposed to smell or taste like. But the result here was good with nice aroma and flavours that weren’t too flowery since they were of the lychee fruit. And on top of that, I thought that this turned out better than Cantillon Mamouche.

Bought @ De Moor Haasdonk. Aroma is a whiff of elderflower, funky lambiek, fresh grass and spring twigs. High carbonation, rather fizzy. Beautiful white head which disappears rather quickly and leaves a white ring. Taste is very fresh funk, yeast and sour in balance. This bottle is two years old, so I don't know how dominant the elderflower is in a new one. The elderflower is there, with all its aspects, but fades rather fast, taken over by funky Lambiek. Palate is fizzy and dry. Elderflower comes back in finish.

Boutip (6533) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2017
Bottle: Poured a golden color gueuze with a nice large white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of funky ester with some light blossom notes and some floral undertones. Taste is a complex mix of blossom notes with some funky ester with some tart notes with limited amount of acidity. Body is about average with lively carbonation. I loved the mix of elderflower which don’t overpower the taste of the base gueuze but rather complement it well.

Bottle shared with the KL tasting crew. Poured a hazy medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is diesel, floral elderflower citrus fruit. The flavour is light sour with a crisp fresh mineral yeasty floral palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
