mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - MAY 2, 2009
Bottle. Pours with a small frothy lasting white head and a lightly cloudy amber colour. Has a grainy-acidic aroma and a berry-granny smith apple like tartness and taste-and a changagne like dryness to the finish.

noompa (130) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 2, 2009
750 ml. bottle (2008) in a tumbler. Ar: Light, citrus fruits (Peach, Orange) and Camembert cheese, vinegar. Ap: Hazy orange-yellow color w/ a pure white, fast-disappearing head. Fl: Vinegar, Camembert, orange blossom, sea salt; tart and nutty. Pa: Effervescent in mouth, true to style. Crisp, dry finish. A solid, widely available Gueuze, but nowhere the best out there.

Case (300) - GERMANY - APR 28, 2009
2 year old bottle. Unlike all other Lindemans offerings, this is not a sweetened Lambic product. Pours a pale clear yellow with minimal head that immediately disappears, leaving behind a fine lacing. Aroma is tart and sour, green apples, musty, funky. Taste is only very moderately sour, smooth and fruity with sour apples and lemon. Towards the end the dusty barnyard makes itself known. Light body. Very relaxed for a Gueuze and easily drinkable. This is a good beginner’s Gueuze. Afficionados will want to head for the stronger stuff.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2009 dry grapefruit, champagne, and zest aroma. orval-like sourness but sweeter. dry lime. soft finish.

Blaketj80 (78) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 15, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 Smells limey, sour, and of spices with decent white head and golden in color. The beer starts sour and of lime. It continues with hints of wood, cinnamon and quite intriguing complexity. A decent beer.

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - APR 15, 2009
Bottle from Kegs & Barrels in Plano, TX. Pours a cloudy orange with nice white fizzy head. Aroma is tart, vinegar, citrus, grapefruit, hell, it’s a mixture of fruits. Flavor is great, acidic, tart, citrus, somewhat dry in the end. Mouth feel is light body with fizzy carbonation. Overall, a great tasting and very refreshing beer!

Sregnar35 (1030) - Rotterdam, New York, USA - APR 14, 2009
Vinegar du jour. Pours ugly dark pee orange with no head. Aroma is oranges and vinegar. Flavor is that of orange and lemon pith with sugar and vinegar mixed in, wow, strange.

illidurit (2319) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
Thanks to Sandstone for this one. Cloudy goldenrod color with a large white head. Aroma is pleasantly tart with lemon and orange notes. Flavor is medium acidic with unripe citrus and apple and a touch of lactic funkiness. Semidry finish with a very smooth mouthfeel. More of an intro gueuze than a tooth-enamel-destroyer with massive complexity, but still very solid.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 12, 2009
75cl bottle thanks to Sandstone. Hazy dark gols with a big white head. Funky straw, leather, green apple and lemon aroma. Moderate sourness with light funk, lemon, and some citrus peel. Light bodied and dry feel with medium carbonation. seems on the mellow side for a gueuze, but the dryness and acidity are there. Quite drinkable and non-intimidating. I need to get some more of this.
