Mostly without head and a carbonated brown body . Sort of bitter aroma along with some flowery aspects. Tastes a lot like a cider with a kind of dry taste at the end. Tis a little on the sweet side. Has light champagne texture.

Aside from Lindemans Cuvee Renee, they really make soda like lambic drinks and this, unfortunately, is no different. The aroma on it had some promise. Light sour/tartacidic notes started it off nicely but it began and ended on those notes. It was barely even there. Perhaps those who havent had "traditional" lambics might find this aroma intriguing, but I found it to be a let down. Appearance was a golden honey yellow, small champagne like bubbles with a minimal frothy head. Mouthfeel was missing that mouth stripping feel that Ive come to love with top notch gueuzes like Girardin and 3F. Little to no action on the palate left me wondering what the hell happened, but I remembered it was a Lindemans product. So what came next was no suprise...sweetness!! A sweet gueuze....what a fn shame. And to top it off, it was a saccharine-like sweetness. Give me the dry as a bone, mouth puckering, nut-shot, punch in the mouth sourness instead of this mess. If you really want to try a good product from Lindemans, theres really only one worth a damn and thats the aforementioned Cuvee Renee. The rest of this stuff is just crap.

cheap (5540) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2008 In a Bios sniffer. Strong alky ale aroma. Metallic olfactory. Beautiful viscous brown orange clear appearance. The smell is no indicator of taste. Odd old mold citrus mild bitter bite on the upper back of the throat. Tingly fruit champagne palate. Farmyard lemon llime wet hay flavors. Finish is unique and appreciated. Dee Lish.

thedm (5939) - Fredonia, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2007
This bottled brew from a bottle shop in Indianapolis, IN poured a small sized head of foamy mostly lasting off white colored bubbles that left behind a transparent soft carbonated deep orange colored body and a good lacing. The aroma was frsdsh with typical notes of dry sour farmhouse smells. The palate was good for a gueuze with a nice carbonation on the tongue and tingly from start to finsh. Its flavor was slightly sweet not sour and dry as expected. All in all, in was pretty godd. Much better than most gueuzes I have had.

From a bottle poured a amber color with a good amount of head. Expected it to not be as sweet as it was, but still good.

mmmbeer (1399) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2007
12 oz bottle- poured light tan/brown, carbonic head dissolved after one minute. Aroma of sweetness, tender rotten fruit, and yeast. Hits the mouth with sweetness and sourness, finish very nonexistant and dry. I enjoyed it, and Im not a big fan of the style, why didnt the beerpagners?

Guerde (1295) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2007
Pours gold with a white head. Somewhat off-putting aroma, strong on yeast, slightly funky. There wasnt much to the taste, maybe a bit of lemon, but the finish was incredibly dry.

This beer pours a deep reddish color into the tulip glass with a small white head. Aroma is a nice acidic tart smell. Smells very wild just like a good gueuze should. Taste is a wonderful blend of a light sweetness and acid. A light funk also proceeds with this one. I really like gueuze and think this style is misunderstood many times. Yes, this beer is tart and acidic but it is lightly sweet and complex at the same time. Good stuff!
