750 mL gold foil topped green bottle, poured into a snifter.

Clear, effervescent, apple cider-ish gold color with a thick, but quickly receding bubbly white head with little lacing. As soon as I pop the cork I hit by an (delicious) aroma of pungent, sour, funky aroma, citric lemon, must, dirt, etc. Everything expected from a gueze, but not quite as complex or tart as exceptional ones. First sip is extremely sour and musty, followed by citric lemon and earthy notes and as it warms up the finish is slightly sweet before the high carbonation cleanses the palate and leaves a dry, mild sour finish. Overall body is lighter side of medium with an effervescent quality. Lacking the depth of some other guezes, but an excellent example for the availability, accessibility and price.

Pours a deep gold with a champagne-like bone white head. Lots of tiny bubbles. Sour notes dominate, but a slight sweet peach aroma comes through on the nose. Mild berry tones noticable. Lots of sour black cherry dominates the palate. Dry, somewhat short finish. Amazing flavor upfront. Mild mustiness in the back. Dry, crisp effervescent mouthfeel. Quite refreshing. One of the few beers I could mistake for a champagne. My wife even thought it tasted like champagne, only more sour. A very good beer. I will try this one many times over. Try this one!!

Underappreciated.

Pours as a golden tan, bubbly looking brew.

I am not a big Lindemans fan, but I went into this with an open mind ... and nose. The smell really reassured me. Funky, barnyard horse mustiness, and a bit of unripe apple/pear.

Flavor adds oak to the mix, but the same unripe apple/pear and barnyard funk notes that I detected in the aroma carry through. A noticeably sour beer, but one that isn't as overwhelmingly sour as other (much higher priced) beers. But, sour enough, and very unlike their other brews.

At only 10.99 a bottle, I may buy them out.
