A-Pours a hazy, honey colored orange/yellow with a one finger, white head.

S-Whew! This one is musty and funky as all hell at first. The must and funk fade into a predominantly lemon and a bit of funk scent.

T-Tart lemon and a bit of sour, funky notes to it with some earthiness on the finish.

M-A little thin feeling and watery in the mouth with heavy carbonation.

D-The musty character is hard to get by at first. The thin watery mouthfeel is also something I'm not really a fan of, but I would be willing to give Gueze another shot.

Taste was very metallic and skunky, and did not have a tart/ sour taste like style should have. I was very disappointed but hoping to try this again sometime but will buy from a different liquor store.

Poured into a large wine glass two two fingers, decent head and some lacing - an orange amber color - Smell is yeasty, some fruit and banana - Taste - is sour and earthy, funk, really unpleasantly balanced - like a funky dry sweet wine - not so much yeast/banana - Mouthfeel is dry, medium body and carbonation - Overall I was very disappointed in parting with $6.45 for this brew - could be it is not my style but I will not be grabbing this again.

2011 Vintage.
750ml poured into a wine glass.

Slightly cloudy golden-straw with 2 fingers of fizzy white head. Moderate-heavy carbonation.

Nose
Lemon juice, Sweet Tarts and vinegar.

Taste
Sour lemon juice, peach and Granny Smith apple skins. White wine vinegar and Sweet Tarts. Finishes with musty basement and hints of oak.

Mouthfeel
Medium bodied, moderately sour, crisp and clean.

Overall
Primarily loads of lemon juice, apple skin and vinegar. Not necessarily my favorite style of Sour.

Medium straw hue with good clarity and a little head.

Lightly sweet with a strange spicy peppery weed/grass-like aroma and a touch of cinnamon. Smells like an old church.

Not what I expected at all. The word barnyard comes to mind. Little sweetness and fruit flavors give way to barnyard tainted tartness. It kind of tastes like and old church too, or some herbal/thistle tea except it’s really tart. The tartness is more dull than strong and punchy. Finishes with dry and metallic hints. My tongue hurts.

Good carbonation and medium body.

Interesting and weird. This isn’t as tasty as I’d hoped, but it is cool. I look forward to trying more Gueuzes, only they’re so expensive ‘round here.

2001 Vintage. 750mL bottle poured into a tulip-style glass. It pours a deep orange/brown color with two fingers of head. There is minimal lacing on this one. The smell is a little musty with some white grapes and lots of acidity. The taste starts very sour, very very sour, with a bit of a dry sherry finish. There is a slight metallic aftertaste. The mouthfeel is fairly thick and strong. Due to the high acid content, I was not able to stomach too much of this one. Maybe I'll like Lindeman's sweeter gueuze better.

orange and foamy out of the bottle, not untypical for the style. tart and dry nose, some vinegar. slightly complex gueze but not terribly so -- only average. tastes of lambic funk, tart and dry with some acetic qualities. scrubbing bubbles in the mouth, fairly light body.

Pours a cloudy dark golden orange color with a thick foamy head. Funky tart aroma that is sweet, sour and vinuous at the same time with yeast and light crisp frruit notes. Sour and puckering with a nice amount of carbonation. Champagne-like with sweet crisp light fruits (apple, pear and grape) and a very dry sour finish. Acidic.
