355 mL served in lindemans flute
Appearance: looks like apple juice, little Lacing, no haze, cloudiness, champagne like bubbles when poured.

Smell: tart, lemon, some funk, yeastiness, citrus, barnyard

Taste: very similar to smell, tartness, sourness, followed by a fruitiness and a slightly tart/sour finish. I taste some woodiness, such as oak. This is my first gueuze. I like it, it's different though.

Mouthfeel: light and carbonated, very light. Refreshing, but one of the driest beers ive ever had. Would be nice on a summer day. I can imagine myself sitting on a local farm drinking this with some cheese

Overall: first gueuze, I like it but its hard to review your first beer of the style. I will revisit this style again later

For some reason, I have a hang-up about lindeman's beers, but this one was actually quite delicious. Hazy burnt gold with a lively white head that looks nice but fades pretty quickly and doesn't leave much lace. This is a geuze though, so it is good for the style. Nose is nice and elegant and trademark lindeman's, which is good, but I'm sorry to say the whole thing seems a little safe and doesn't seem to speak volumes of the place it was made or the person it was made by. Very floral and the oak is a new oak smell, like fresh, french oak. Tart lemon and apple that seems red in the nose and green in the taste. Also a touch of earth and mushroom and must. It touches on everything that is good and proper for the style and comes off dry and refreshing with a little pucker. One of the more affordable and obtainable guezes out there. I will definitely be putting a few of these away and forgetting about them to see how they morph. Great sour jones fix without breaking the bank.

Pours a mixed mango colour. Good head/lacing.

Smell is light mango, hydroponics, funk, lemon. Nice malt and funk.

Taste is subdued. Bit of lemon and some crispness and funk.

Mouthfeel is fine, somewhat sour and somewhat minerally.

Overall a good beer at an obviously young age.
