Lambic beer is a very versatile beer inspiring creativity. The Family Brewery Lindemans proves this once again with the launch of the BlossomGueuze, an old gueuze with a twist. The result? A very original and unique beer, made with elderflower. Perfect for food pairing or as a tasty aperitif!
BlossomGueuze is 2 to 3 year old lambic aged in wood, blended with 12 month old lambic and elderflower. After refermentation in the bottle this gueuze has a golden colour and combines the sour taste of lambic with the natural and fresh aromas of elderflower.

I think this was about as great as Goedele's Bloesem even though I heard this one only uses elderflower extract. Black pepper and elderflower in the aroma, light lambic funk. Fruity flavor, sour, elderflower, delicious.

Bright orange, thin layer of loose foam, soapy with spotty lacing.
Mildly vegetal botanical aroma, slight funk, mild elderflower.
Taste is a bit more one dimensional, tart apple.
Fairly high carbonation, light bodied.
Overall it was decent, though a bit one dimensional.
Thanks to Mark for sharing!

Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized, spongy head.

Smells truly flowery, with a herbal touch and a cucumber sourness, which turns more mature and well rounded, due to cream cheese and dried mushrooms. Sweet malts settle in, gently balanced by the funk, with the elderflowers adding more than just an addition layer, but enrich the nose by an amazingly well working smell of herbs.

Drinks very light and refreshing, with a present, not yet distracting mineralic quality.

Tastes of elderflowers from first glance, with not much accompanying lambic funk but a slightly acidic cucumber sourness, mellowed by the herb. Turns more lemony then, reminding me of a young and crisp lambic, enhanced by a present mineralic effervescence. Turns a tad dryer and funkier during the finish, with a note of wet basement and mushrooms, never loosing its focus on the elderflower.

The sourness mellows, once the beer warms up, still reminding me of a very young lambic, but coming together pleasantly well and tasty. The elferflower adds a nice edge to the subtle integrated funk and lemon, giving the beer a satisfying depth and taste.

A 750ml bottle, bottled in September 2015. Poured into a Lindemans flute glass.

Appearance: A clear golden colour with a one finger white head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some nice lacing.

Aroma: Elderflower and lychee jelly with hints of oak.

Taste: Sour, oak, herbal, funk, white wine, grape, elderflower and lychee.

Mouthfeel: Medium to light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: Elderflower and lychee… I was curious. When I did a search of “elderflower smells like…” lychee actually popped up automatically for me, so clearly someone did the same search as I did. This was all the more interesting since even though I’ve also tried Mamouche, I still had no idea what elderflower was supposed to smell or taste like. But the result here was good with nice aroma and flavours that weren’t too flowery since they were of the lychee fruit. And on top of that, I thought that this turned out better than Cantillon Mamouche.

Bottle: Poured a golden color gueuze with a nice large white head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of funky ester with some light blossom notes and some floral undertones. Taste is a complex mix of blossom notes with some funky ester with some tart notes with limited amount of acidity. Body is about average with lively carbonation. I loved the mix of elderflower which don’t overpower the taste of the base gueuze but rather complement it well.

Side by side with Goedele's Bloesem

More carbonated. White head. Bubbly feel. The Goedeles is more pronounced in terms of flavor. This has a lot of great flavors, but just a bit subdue. Dill pickle, lemon citrus, crushed black pepper. Spicy in a good way.

Light bodied. Smooth and easy drinking. Very awesome. Two steps below mamouche level.

750 mL bottle. Clear golden body. Medium white head. Smells of strong elderflower. Herbal, floral, citrus, a bit of green pepper. Some oak. Tastes lightly tart. Funky and diapery. Oak. Lightly sweet. Green pepper, flowers, herbal finish. Medium body. Smells nice, but doesn’t quite pan out in the flavor.

Hazy yellow liquid with a small head and disappears quickly, leaving a ring. Nose is funky, lambic forward, lemon, notes of lactic acid, brett yeast, very floral. Taste is without any doubt, floral, rosebud, lemon, lime, green grape, white wine, slight spice and peppery final, cilantro seeds. Long aftertaste, wood notes, very complex acidity. Very good Lambic!
