A - 4.25 - Nice orange amber color that's slightly hazy with a thick white 1/2 finger head that leaves lumpy lacing.
S - 4.25 - sour grapes, lemon juice, lime juice, fresh sour berries, sour patch kids, it's pretty awesomely sour.
T - 4.25 - sour grapes, lemons, limes, bready malt in the background.
M - 4.25 - light-medium. Alc covered. Aftertaste is bready malts and tart.
O - 4.25 - Great beer. I think I like the framboise best.

Capped and corked 750 bottle on 03/2007.

I poured this into my oversized Triple Karmeliet tulip using several pours. This is my first tango with a gueze so bare with me. The appearance is a hazy peach that burst forth a large white head that melts away into a gentle ring on the sides of the glass. This beer has a surprisingly think appearance. Even when held to the light, nothing will show through. The aroma is musty at first, then with tart citric notes that come fluttering in. There are also spicy notes that almost remind me of the nutmeg aromas from a pumpkin pie. The aroma is very complex but yet oddly straightforward. While it seems that there are many notes coming from the beer, with every new whiff something else comes through. All the aromas are straightforward. The taste is again musty up front with just a slight bit of funk. Then its cheek puckering citric tartness, the kind that hits you right behind the jaw. This is really good. The mouthfeel is crisp and very dry, with just a light carbonation that lends itself to the dryness. This is a great beer. Very well crafted by the brewers at Lindemans. Unfortunately, its not something I could drink everyday.
