12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: Hazy orange body with little head retention.

S: Loads of funk and vinegar.

T: Lip-puckeringly sour with plenty of barnyard notes. Unrelenting dryness in the finish.

M: Light to medium-bodied with bubbly carbonation.

D: If Lindemans was a recording artist, Framboise would be its self-consciously accessible and commercial recording and Cuvee Rene would be its dense experimental work. Having the two so close together was really quite jarring. This is a fine example of the style, but I think I'd enjoy it more in the summertime.

Color: Pours a light blond color with a one-finger head.

Aroma: Sourness with tart apple, cherry and lemon aromas. A bit of mustiness.

Taste: Musty and sour with hints of tart fruits once again. Not as easy to pick out as by aroma. Apple seems to dominate. Funky.

Mouthfeel: Tart and funky. A bit dry but not by much. Different from most other beers.

Verdict: Not quite sour as Boon but still a decent example of the style.

Pours a gazed orange hued gold with a white head. Nose is grassy funky with a sweet edge. Flavor is grassy. Mix of sweet edges on a mildly funky tone. Feel is a fairly vibrant carbonation and the liquid is slick. This is a good starter gueuze as many have said before. If you don't want to dive all the way in with something super funky, this is the one to go for.

Poured from a 12 oz. corked and capped bottle of unknown date into a tulip glass.

Appears a slightly hazy golden color with a one inch white head. Leaves some big sheets of lace on the side of the glass.

Aroma is somewhat tart - reminds me of green apples and lemon zest. There is also a sugary sweetness below the tartness.

When the beer initially enters the mouth it seems like there is a mild sweetness but then right as I swallow more lemony sourness comes up followed by a green apple-like dry finish.

Mouthfeel is medium-light, crisp with creamy carbonation.

This one's pretty good though I haven't much to compare to. Will continue to explore the world of sours.
