Aroma is sherbety with some grapefruit and sparkling, crisp citrus. Flavour is sour, stewed apple giving off to a woody, crisp champagne. Rosebud butternuts (2408) - Denton, Texas, USA - SEP 29, 2009
bottle thanks to fratto. i need lessons with a corkscrew. this bottle was a huge pain to get open. at least cavie didnt say it took 1 1/2 men to open it. poured light gold with a white head. aroma was tart and funky with some citrus with the flavor following the nose. body was heavy as well.

Had a lot of fun watching Eric and Travis trying to pop the cork.Sour fruit, sour beer, very sour apple. This clearly isn’t my gig. Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2009
2005 rom the First Annual Chicago Sour Tasting, thanks to Andrew.
clear golden pour, with almost no head. Aroma is relatively soft, woodiness is predominant. Flavor is similar with a little bit of rubberiness, mild to medium acidity. Much more subtle than other guezes, but still very drinkable. Body is pretty thin, but that makes it pretty quaffable.

[Sampled with René....and CKlaus north of Gilleleje.] Haze yellowamber with fast head and good notes of complex citric and acid elements in a great combination. Vinegar, leather, horseblanket, barnyard, earthy, woody, all mixes together to an indeed great brew. WOW DeeBee21 (51) - NH, New Hampshire, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Golden orange, apricot color pour with a foamy white head. Lots of tartness in the nose, sour apple, some burnt sugar sweetness, hint of lemon and just a hint of grassy funk. Lots of sweetness at the front, straight sugars, then finish green apple tart, way more fruit then funk, not what I expected given the style but sill very enjoyable. Lots of carbonation to carry the tartness throughout. Like i said very enjoyable. Jblauvs (1357) - Chester, Vermont, USA - SEP 15, 2009
Pour is a hazy orange with a huge pillow of a white head. Aroma is fresh apricot with some nice citrus and some light funk. Flavor is tart nectar ffuit and some cream soda sweetness as well as some wood. Tart and a bit funky, the best lindemans Ive experienced by far. not extraordinarily complex but crisp refreshing and a good gueuze for people just getting into the style Cavie (4805) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 13, 2009
Corked bottle that took 2 men 5 minutes to open. Clear orange pour with a floatie! Yay! Some tartness and sour on the aroma. Past that there is some complex fruit scents. Very tart taste. Smacky flavor with some bitterness. little fruit to speak of on the taste. Has some similar qualities to wine. Interesting but very different. My first Gueuze though!

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2009 Pours out with a nice foamy head. Color amber, with a cream colored head. Initial aroma of fruit and grass. Smooth palate with a sour fruity flavor. This is my first lambic and so far so good.
