i really liked this one from lindemans, much better than some of their fruited stuff, and a much lighter take on they style than is available from others. its crystal clear after i pour from the capped and corked green glass bottle. radiantly clear really, yeast cake remains on the bottom of the bottle. head is fizzy and white but settles quickly, and there is a real champagne sort of look to it. the nose is only a bit sour, its still definitely blended lambic, no mistake about that, but it hass less of the lactic hotness of others, instead having a light wheat malt flavor and some yeast character other than sourness. its meadowy, springy, floral and very delicate. not a lugging weighty gueuze, but one to really drink up, like a glass of spring white wine, it seems to be the perfect compliment to a chickpea curry, but i can see it working in about a million food contexts. this is a good beer to introduce folks to the style with too, its less caustically acidic but equally refined as the others. i like it quite a bit, and am more excited to crack the bottle of faro lambic in the fridge now too!

Less sour and more fruity than traditional gueuzes. Strong oak aroma and hint of lemon. Short final of wet bread.

This'll be my first Geuze. Picked this one up at The Four Firkins. Pours a clear, pale golden color, with a big white foam head with good retention. A good amount of lacing. Lots of visible carbonation. Aroma is lemon rind, with a hint of grassiness. Reminiscent of sparkling pear juice, with more subtle pear notes. A ton of tartness. Very heavy on the green apple. A little bit of metallic funkiness. An interesting blend. Taste features a good deal of sourness up front. Sour green apple. A bit of yeast. Very crisp and highly refreshing . The sourness is not overpowering, and actually leaves a pleasant tangy resin on the tongue. Light-medium body. Lots of carbonation, but man does this one go down easy. Very crisp and refreshing. Although the sourness makes it difficult to chug, it is very easy to rapidly sip on this one. Very much enjoyed this one as my first geuze, and will definitely be seeking out more.
