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!

I slept on this one for too long.
Last bottle in my store, many customers recommended it.
Such a good lambic, defintely not funky or out there.
Nice and smooth, a bit of sour and a bit of barrel character.
Dry & sweet.
I could see this lambic turning white wine drinkers to beer.
World-Class for sure.
I've heard this is Lindemans best offering, and it does not disappoint.
There's no artificial sweeteners! Hence the oude! :)

A handsome pour with a blanket of foam that Great yeasty aroma. Tastes of bark and dry fruit. The Belgian dry yeasty flavor is distinctive but not overly strong. Hints of apricot and biscuits.

A little acidic but I wouldn't call it sour. I think it's what the wild yeast/bacteria style of beer is supposed to taste like, not the vinegar bombs so touted in the American Wild category.

A very drinkable, lighter brew with the classic Belgian yeasty taste and bitterish finish. From the 750 ml bottle purchased at Best Damn Beer Store in San Diego.
