750ml corked and caged bottle into Night Shift stemware.

Nose is heavy on the ginger. Makes it bright and peppery. There's very little in the way of funk, barnyard and cheesiness that I usually get from this style. Beer opens ginger, ginger and more ginger. There's some lemon zest, hay and foam in the back. A touch of wet wood and ginger skin at the end gives this one the slightest bitter finish. It works but the ginger is a bit overwhelming at times. Body is light with ample carbonation. Foamy and prickly on the palate and goes down with lots of bubbles. Finishes dry with a filmy aftertaste. A bit too carbonated.

Lindemans makes excellent gueuze but at least until this point, their gueuze + additions haven't really worked in my opinion. This is a pass for me.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that hardly died down, consistently leaving a short head covering the surface and lots of bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of ginger and funk are present in the nose.
T: The taste is somewhat funky, but this is mostly subdued and tamed by the ginger flavors.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The ginger in this gueuze is a little strong, but makes this beer quite palatable compared to others in the style.

Serving type: bottle

A 750ml bottle, bottled in December 2016. Poured into a 3 Fonteinen stemmed glass.

Appearance: A clear golden colour with a big three finger white head that had pretty good retention and left lots of sticky lacing.

Aroma: Ginger, lemon, floral, herbal, earthy, oak, funk, wet damp barnyard.

Taste: Cleaner than the aroma as in the ginger and lemon zest take centre stage, a bit ginger ale like, while there is light oak, herbal and funkiness going on in the background, but nowhere near as much as the aroma suggests.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: An interesting twist as I felt that the ginger did go quite well with Gueuze and in fact it reminded me a bit of ginger ale. Refreshing and tasty.

750 ml bottle into snifter; bottled in 6/2017, best before end of 2023. Pours slightly hazy pale golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big tart lemon, lime, ginger, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, green apple, melon, white wine, citrus zest, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, grass, wheat, white bread, light leathery/musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, ginger, oak, pale/wheat malt notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart lemon, lime, ginger, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, green apple, melon, white wine, citrus zest, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, grass, wheat, white bread, light leathery/musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness. Moderate peppery yeast/ginger/oak spiciness and some lactic tartness on the finish. Lingering notes of tart lemon, lime, ginger, orange, grapefruit, peach, pear, green apple, melon, white wine, citrus zest, peppercorn, oak, hay, straw, herbal, grass, wheat, white bread, light leathery/musty funk, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, ginger, oak, pale/wheat malt flavors; with an awesome malt/tart/spiciness balance, and zero puckering/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Moderate increasing dryness from tart/spiciness and carbonation. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy/acidic/sticky, and lightly tannic balanced mouthfeel that is fantastic. Zero warming alcohol for 6%. Touch of lingering ginger spice heat through the glass. Overall this is a fantastic spiced gueuze style! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/light acidic yeast, ginger, oak, pale/wheat malt flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink; with the modestly tart/spicy/drying finish, never overly lactic. Classic barnyard Gueuze Brett funk with balanced ginger spice vibrancy; nice oak presence and malt backing against acidity. A highly enjoyable offering, and spot on style example. Never overdone on any aspect.

From a champagne-like bottle, this beer is corked and pours a mostly clear golden color with a tall white head. The aroma is amazing..a mix of ginger and barnyard. Spice and a little underlying malt. The taste isn't as sour as expected. Just a little tart with lots of ginger spice. Medium body. Wonderful.

750ml bottle purchased at Julio's in MA for $15, score. Bright orange, tons of lacing and head. The aroma is heavy ginger and I think Cuvee Rene Gueuze, it's nice and floral, bright. Heavy ginger on the flavor, not really sour at all. Let's not act like Tilquin, 3F, and De Cam don;t all use Lindeman's lambic in their blends. There is a good reason for that.

Lots of carb. White head. Big and fluffy. Golden orange color.

Great gueuze and Lambic flavor. Lemon citrus and oaky with a bit of funk. The ginger is the show here, but it doesn’t over power the gueuze. Very drinkable. Slightly dry in the finish with lemon rind.
