Enjoyed in a tulip glass

A: pours a bright golden orange color that is quite hazy and has a nice amount of viable sediment floating around, pours with three fingers of pure white fluffy head that appears very light and airy and lingers for a nice amount of time, leaves spotty lacing around the glass
S: pears, apples, overall sweet and tart fruits
T: such an interesting taste, reall diverse, hits with the sweetness initially like apple juice then hits in the middle with a bit of funky wheat like flavors then slowly falls off the back of the palate with a ton of tartness, leaves a tart taste in the mouth
M: medium carbonation beginning to end, then leaves an interesting feeling on the palate kind of like after sucking on a slice of lemon, overall pleasant
O: a really great brew, so interesting and complex, really nice, glad to have this as my first gueuze

A: Pours slightly hazy golden color with a foamy white head on top. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Head lasts for a few minutes before reducing to a very thin ring around the top. Thin and sporadic lacing forms on the sides.

S: A little musty, nice tartness, has a little bit of lemon and light peach and apricot. It has a nice barnyard funk.

T: Dry and tart, retains that barnyard/musty funk. Nice flavor of apples, white grape, and a little bit of lemon.

M: Light to medium bodied, very crisp, with light tartness. Slightly dry finish.

O: Really nice beer, nice and approachable gueuze at a great price. Certainly going to be picking up some more of this.

Bottle date of July 1st, 2010. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.

A - Pours a deep yellow-amber color--very similar to cider or apple juice. Intense, effervescent carbonation provides several fingers of fluffy white head and a constant champagne-like stream of bubbles up the side of the glass. Good retention.

S - I immediately get deep, rich aromatic malts and a slightly spicy note reminiscent of an authentic pilsener. Tart green apple underlying the malt.

T - Immediately sour up front, yet it retains a light, sweet malt flavor that balances reasonably well. Dry, crisp apple flavor and bready grains through the middle and finish. A lasting tartness remains on the sides of my tongue and in the back of my throat.

M - Thin body with intense carbonation. A delight to swish each sip around a bit. Finishes semi-dry and tart (but not puckering).

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy light amber with a two finger white head that has good retention and leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass. The aroma is some light funk, some cheese, lemon, and a bit of lactic presence, The initial taste is a bit of tart lemon. Then comes some funky cheese and some earthy notes. The finish a has a light tartness and a bit of funk. Light bodied. Low carbonation. This is certainly the best Lindemans beer I have had, but it is certainly a significant step down from other gueuzes. It was enjoyable, but the flavors are pretty bland compared to a world class gueuze.

A- Looks like a good lambic. Straw color, golden pale orange.

S- Very funky. Lemons, apples, barnyard.

T- I love lambics, but this one, for me, is just a touch too funky. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but I think a little too one dimensional.

M- Very good carbonation and drinkability.

O- I would buy this again, but wouldn't name it among my top five favorite lambics.
