"1998" vintage
Rose-yellow liquid with a whale-blubber-white, energetic head that hisses and spits its way quickly to a surface-hugging pattern of chunky islands. The smell is intense and resembles loads of pressed apples, burning paper, peppermint, brushed steel, and over-ripe sourdough starter. Sour as all get out. An apple with the sugar removed. Barf flavors throughout. Like barfed up apple pulp and crushed apple seeds. Lime, blood, and sour cherries churn on the palate leaving a path of dry destruction and me, dependantly, begging for more. An awesome hell-beer. From the honey-pine forests of Utopia.

Retasted 10-19. Upgraded from 4.8 to 5. Possibly the best food beverage in the world...
___

Another sample on 9/13/2003 bottled in 2002. This time no cork.
Is this tamer than the 1998? Is my palate inured to the style? Does it need to age?
Wasted red apples and white paper on the nose but less than before. Simpler, more dilute, less hiss... very clean and refreshing, but hardly pushing the envelope that the 1994 and 1998 did:
4.5, 4.5, 4.5, 4.0, 4.5
___

Nov. 2003...Tasted the 2002 next to a 1994 (Thanks Surly!)
My faith in the 2002 was restored. It's just too young if you prefer what age can do to this beer - as I do. Witness the 1994: It was like drinking molten lemons that had been painstakingly spiced with thousands of Sumatran botanicals. Certainly a 5, 5, 5, 5, 5!

I've been waiting to drink this beer again so I could review it. I had the 1994 about a year ago, and it immediately became my favorite beer. This time, I'm having the 1998.

Pours the color of honey with a swirl of lively, dancing carbonation floating aimlessly about the beer. Really quite beautiful. If you don't pour this carefully, the head explodes into a dense, rocky, billowing puff yielding a powerful aroma.

Aromas of tart apples and vinegar -- cider gone bad.

It has a bile sort of feel to it, especially in the back of the throat. Very dry on the tongue, however. An acidic, vinegar taste with a mild hint of apple and pure sour candy (conjure up images of those sour gum balls that were all the rage in like 1992).

This is, for a man who loves a good sour ale, one of the elite beers. Simply fabulous. I've had this beer 3 or 4 times now, and this is the first time I haven't consumed the whole 750 mL bottle myself -- and this is only because this is the first time I've lived with another beer snob, my fiancee. Great beer in every respect.

Brewed in 1992, bottled in 1994, drank in 2003.

This 9-yeard old beauty poured pure gold and transparently so. Had a big filmy and foamy head, nice bits of stain, tons of lace, and champagne amounts of carbonation. It looked like a publicists dream for picture perfect beer.

Nose was sweet, tart, with notes of apple and a vinuous tone to everything. Also had a toasty champagne-like presence. Smelled intriguing and inviting, nothing like what most would consider beer. Sharp yet not biting, the aging rounded things out without diminishing anything's force.

First taste was the head which literally tasted like sugar. Then came the body of the beer which was dry, tangy, and leafy, like a bite of young mint. Yeast gave some bread notes, but it mostly tasted like a wheat beer gone champagne, in both appearance, feel, and taste. How else to describe this?

Had an amazing mouthfeel: it feels like magic as it evaporates on your tongue. Had no aftertaste in the lingering, coating sense; just the sour, sweet, dry, and leafy details wafting up your nasal passages and tingling the back of you mouth and throat.

Almost a decade of waiting calms and blends this beauty down on a variety of levels, rounds the sharp parts together. THE drink with food, especially fuit and vegetables. Its gueuze at its best – what else do you say? Gueuze is an endlessly fascinating style of beer and the product is nothing if not puzzling, tantalizing, refreshing, and edifying, both to the mouth and the brain.

Still haven't found a gueuze as good as this one. (Aging is key, though, younger bottles have been nearly as good the one reviewed above).

look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Corked bottle. Bottled on date: 08 Nov. 2011. Poured into a wine glass.

Appearance: A nice satisfying "pop" from the cork. Very hazy amber to light orange. Very minimal head, quickly dissipating and leaving little lacing on the glass. Lots of small bubbles; almost looks like stars twinkling in the sky.

Smell: Even before I put my nose to it, I can smell the funk. With my nose in the glass, I also pick up a lot of green apple and apple cider vinegar, as well as oak and even more barnyard funk. There is also a surprisingly fruity sour note.

Taste: Where to begin. The first thing I noticed was the funk, and a lot of it. It seems like a common note that holds all of the other flavors together, leading to a very nice and complex balance. Following the nose, there is also green apple and some sour and tart red fruit, maybe raspberry. As I keep sipping, there is woody oak and some wine like tannins, mixed with balsamic and vinegar. When the beer warms a bit, some sea salt and yeast flavors emerge, only to become even more dominated by horseblanket and funk.

Mouthfeel: Medium to low carbonation, but this might be in part due to the bottling age. The beer is very crisp with a creamy body. The finish is long, mouthpuckering, sour. and lively. It just goes on forever.

Overall: So, so good. The price is right, the beer is incredibly complex while remaining balanced, with none of the flavors overpowering the others; they all work together like a symphony. I would definitely buy this again. This is what beer should be. I don't know what else I can say about it.

I found this at a local pizza shop in Charleston WV as my first Gueuze. Lindemans Gueuze Cuvee Rene was golden in color and kind of cidery sweet tart. Slightly similar to dry wine mouthfeel. The finish had me wanting a 12 pack. Very enjoyable and highly recommended.

I am hunting for this everywhere I go and would love to find it on tap.

Faintly cloudy gold, huge off-white head slowly shrinks to lasting thin foam, tiny bit of lace.

Aroma is very nice paradigmatic Gueuze quality – rustic sour fruits and grain, lots of yeast, wet hay, herbs, lemon.

Taste is drysih but not too dry, with nice Gueuze rutic character overall – lemon and spicy herb, light soured pear, hint of sweetness, yeasty character, wet hay, hint of leafiness, and excellent interplay of the elements. It’s lively and engaging and overall wonderful.

Boom.

Anyway, the head is large and white-bubbled at first, but gradually fades into a short, but tight and constant layer that maintains throughout the period of blessed enjoyment.

The smell is laid back gueuze. It's gentle, but certainly present, and accurately implies the beer's flavor profile, though understates it. Nothing too sweet, but barely tart.

The flavor is awesome. A wonderful way to introduce a friend to lambic beer in general, and a challenge to match it's cleanliness. Mouthfeel, similarily, with all that oozing gueuzy au-natural micro carbonation, activity, and general excitement.

Not much needs to be said. Sit down with one of these and learn something about beer, and about yourself.

First off, this bottle has a date of 1994 on it.
Pours a pale golden color with a nice somewhat rocky/chunky yet fizzy white head that retains nicely. Musty attic and basement with some slightly tart fruitiness as well with a bit of a grassy/hay undertone. Excellently sour and tart with lip puckering goodness that is very intense Plenty of farmish type tastes combine with the great tartness to make this an outstanding brew. Great crisp and dry mouthfeel with a relatively light medium body. I could drink this every day of the week and I probably would if I lived in Belgium.

My 100th review!

Appearance: Pours an invitingly hazy Amber color with about a half-inch of small white bubbles at first pour. There are a lot of bubbles rising to maintain the head. After a couple minutes, the head reduced to a thin layer across the top of the beer. After about twenty minutes in the glass, you notice that the beer has become pretty much clear. Even at this point, there are still a lot of bubbles rising. The beer leaves a thick coat of foam for lace around the glass after drinking.

Aroma: Man, the aroma on this beer is gorgeous! There is lots of citrus among some floral scents. The esters rule, but there is still a bit of sweetness that you can tell is there. There is a soft malty profile that accents the wildness of the aroma beautifully. After the head mostly disappears, you can pick out some of the hay/horsey aromatics residing subtly in the background. As it warms a bit, the blatant citrus starts to mellow out to leave you with a much earthier aroma from which you can start to pick out some of the wheat.

Taste: Gee whiz, how can a beer possibly get better than this???? There is a host of lemons and oranges that lead you into a slightly bitter Lambic “twang” in the middle of the profile. Finally the finish ends feeling like it has a medium body with an assertive carbonation that leaves the throat with enough sweetness to trap some of the citrusy goodness to last well after the sip. After it sits for a half an hour or so (I’m sipping this beer slowly) the flavor gets really soft and refreshing. It almost has a velvety mouthfeel as the carbonation looses assertiveness and leaves the beer to cross your palate in its true form. This beer is awesome!

Opinion: I think that this is about as close to a perfect beer as any. This is really the only beer that I have tried from Lindemans that I would consider saying that about. Sure, their flavored Lambics are good, and world-class in their own right...but they are far too sweet for my palate. This one has some surprising sweetness in it, but it barely even coexists with the wholesome funky goodness of the wild fermentation. It is a bit hard for me to believe that this is what the Lindemans beers taste like before they add all of those syrups in.

Near perfect (at least for me), as sour beers go. Definitely not the most sour gueuze I've ever had, but who are we kidding - some of these just get obnoxiously sour.

Very bubbly, lots of great Brett/pedio aromas. Let's not forget the price point in comparison to it's competition. I got some red apple right in the midst of all that sour. Very complex and tasty.

Rich golden hued beer with plenty of suspended yeast. An insane frothy head that just won't quit tops the beer.

Complex aromas emanate, including lemon, grapefruit, barn, old hay, and vinegar.

Fantastic sour flavors dominate the palate. Just a touch of sweetness in this exceedingly dry beer. Complex and very nice, leaves a lingering sourness.

Full bodied and extraordinarily refreshing. A fantastic beer for the summer.

A: Tan orangish with a 1 finger white head. A little haze with some yeast sediment.
S: Vinegar and unripened citrus fruits. Hint of barnyard funk in the background.
T: Sour sour fruity funk. It is like drinking orange juice right after brushing your teeth, only worse. I love it.
M: Again, it is very sour. Great carbonation and the funk is not overboard.
D: Pretty damn good for one of the most sour beers for the money. Once you get used to the tart flavors from the lactobacillus, it goes down smooth.
This beer is proof that Lindemans actually knows how to make a true wild beer.

Presentation: 750ml bottle (2002) in a generic chalice glass.

Appearance: Golden straw color, fairly hazy. Good head retention for a gueuze.

Aroma: Sour fruit aroma, with slight sweat notes.

Flavor: Exceptional complex blend of flavors: nutty, woody, sour-grape, fresh hay, a touch of horsiness. All with a wonderfully refreshing tartness and a dry, very dry in fact, finish. First time I've given a 5 on flavor.

Body: Lots of carbonation. Light body, almost powdery at the finish.

Easily the best beer of the Lindemans line, this is a fine example of a Gueuze, one of the most refreshing, yet also a beer worth savoring.

Nice looking label on a green bottle .. there is a date of 2017 on the label, but have no clue on the bottled date.

Right when I took out the cork I could see the massive champagne like foam rumbling out of the bottle. Very cool looking! I poured it into my Chimay chalice and got a clear looking, almost cider like fuzzy golden color.

The aroma is very complex. Vinegar, partially digested green apple, shriveled up red grapes, leather, & the famous barnyard hay. Smells like magic.

Taste was almost up there with the aroma. Very acidic, tart, green apple, sour cherry, puke/bile, with some Brett-like Orval'ness to it. An almond taste shows up at the end. I'm loving it.

I never understood why lambics/guezes were considered 'refreshing' until now. This one is really hitting the spot right now. This could be thee sessionable 'sour beer' (if it wasn't so dang pricey).

Bottled in Dec. 2009

Pours a hazy pale golden color with an off white head that fades quickly leaving almost no lacing around the glass.

Smell is musty, lemon, and a bit citrusy.

Taste is fantastic! Very well balanced and easy to drink. Some Gueuze and lambic can be very tart and dry making it a chore to drink, not this one. Sits on the palate nicely also. Upfront is a big hit of orange and lemon tartness, followed by an apple sweetness. Has a musty flavor in the middle. The end of the beer is a bit like a strawberry that isn't quite ripe yet. The finish is of course dry but not an overpowering one.

Overall a nice little beer that I'm proud to have plenty of access to. It seems like it may be a little to fresh right now, I'm sure with some age this could be an outstanding beer.

Vintage 1994. This is my New Years beer. This one pours a slightly oranged yellow color with a 3 finger head that falls to a quarter inch over top of the beer. The nose is really sour, lots of tart and bits of lemony acid, but just sour is all about what it is. The flavor on this beer is just awesome. A huge tart and sour, wtih some lemon and acidy that almost puckers your mouth. Wow. I think this beer is awesome. Full of funk and all that goodness. The feel is nice light moderate, but right where it should be for the tart and sour. Very much an aquired taste, but I love it. For a hugely sour beer, this is really drinkable. I am going out to buy another bottle of this vintage tomorrow. Hot Damn.

No dating seen on the bottle- maybe there was something on the cork when the bartender had it? I was watching the guitarist and vaguely remember this being corked and capped...
Poured out from the bottle to a Chimay glass a clear and golden with just a bit of a thick and cloudy head that swirled across beautifully. Wonderfully dark wine cellary scents, very vineous with tons of fresh pipe tobacco scents. Difficult for me to describe the body on this one... maybe medium... Give it a swirl and you can get some carb, but not too much, not obnoxious amounts, there is good feel to it, it has a good fit. Wow, this is good stuff! This is what I want when I order a gueuze!! You feel the tartness coming at you before it hits your tongue! Yum! Lemon juice and tart granny smith apples, deeply wonderfully vineous and semi-sour. This is just amazingly good and goes down so easily. I was so happy to see this one in the Dawson's fridge! Happiness!

This was recommended by other BA's as a good start for getting my taste buds wet for lambic beer. And I must say they were right on.

Good carbonation. Think white head that dissipates pretty fast. Just a touch of lacing but not much. Nice deep golden color to it. Smell has some spicy/clove-like aromas in it. Nice clean malt aroma and no sourness at all in the nose, which really shocked me for a lambic.

Taste: very well rounded and smooth. Man, this was not what I was expecting. I was expecting a mouth-puckering sour attack on my palate, but it's not the case at all. There is a touch of tartness to it but it's smooth. There is no vinegar flavor in this at all which makes it even more drinkable in my opinion. I was simply shocked by this beer. It's the best sour/lambic beer I've ever had. There is some earthy, herbal flavors in it but it's hard to pin down.

Very nice. If you've never had a lambic I would recommend this one to start with. It's simply great!

M/D: a good zing on the tongue from carbonation that finishes smooth. I could drink this all day if I could afford the $10.00 price tag. Otherwise an awesome beer that is happily balanced and not fruity like the other typical Lindemans offerings. Next up Faro.

When I first broke into sours, this was the first beer that I tasted and it has left its mark. A literal assault on the palate, the tartness of this beer is for lack of a better word...amazing. A beautiful golden color invites you to have sip and get ready for a trip. Aroma of that leathery farmhouse funk typical of sours that makes most shy away. The taste of this beer is what defines gueuze styles for me, the fizzy, pounding tartness that does not let up and sticks with you long after your glass is empty.
Hands down a great beer, haven't tried it on tap yet but I'm sure it's great. This beer really makes me appreciate the craftsmanship that goes into this beer. One could look at the label and see from the bottling date that this beer has been aging for some time before it got to you. Try at least once.

Bought a 750ML bottle of this from 33 Wine Shop & Tasting Bar in Lafayette Square (St. Louis), MO for $16.99. Poured from the gold foiled bottle around the cap and top into a Budweiser Holiday Tulip Glass. Has no sign of freshness date but has destroyed series of letters & numbers on the back of bottle in white.

Aroma- Starts with a nice sour aroma with a huge goaty background. Has a light oak aroma here also and this compliments the style COMPLETELY! Very good attributes.

Appearance- Pours a 5 finger, thick head that seems to last forever! A bit hazy but might have been from throwing the bottle around from the Wine Bar to the flat... Has a pale orange color body and has a ton of lace left behind. Can't get any better!

Flavor- Huge sour, upfront taste and then has nice malt sweetness next. Honey-like and gouty once again and doesn't seem to draw any negatives. No hop bitterness or even any taste for that matter. PERFECT Gueuze!

Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, VERY highly carbonated., Thirst Quenching but then a huge Puckering flavor at the end.

Overall Impression- This is now tied with one of my favorite Gueuze beers! Great qualities, sour, mouth puckering, and the goaty and malty characteristics are well blended. The only complaint with this one was the price... Will be looking to see if I can get a reduced price @ the Liquor store!

This gueuze pours a hazy golden color with little bits of sediment and a huge white head. Smells of barnyard funk, a bit of vinegar and maybe a touch of lemon. Tastes of sour apples, lemon, a touch of vinegar, some yeast funk and spice are the most evident. Very tart and puckering.. Leaves the mouth watering from sip to sip as any sour tends to do. This is a Great belgian sour beer.

I saved this till last tonight, glad I did. This is drier than the Sahara, sharper than a Razor Blade, as bitter as my ex-girlfriend, has more acid than a lemon orchard, as sour as 4 month old Carton of opened Milk, is as pungent as my overflowing laundry basket after 3 weeks, and has a "cheek-suck" stronger than a hoo..... well I will leave that to your imagination, I don't want to get ejected from the Site!.
Man, this is Bloody Good. I never understand how Lindemans can churn out their normal filtered product at the detriment to this traditional Gueuze. An expensive purchase, a treat really for me - but well worth it. More culture than a Petri Dish, a truly Artisanal Beer, and up with the best of the Gueuze.
