Less intense than some of it's countryman cousin brews, however, still on the puckering side of the ledger.

Clear goldenrod, nice head of white foam that sticks well for the style. The aroma is tame at first - a bit one dimensional with simple lactic sourness. The palate gets smacked by a huge dose of tartness - mostly lactic but some acetic acid also peeks through. Traditional lambic funky notes eventually come through - brettanomyces - musty leather, moist wood. Pretty traditional gueuze here, but with the focus much more on the tart than the funky. Worth a buy for sure, and in my case, given the price and lack of decent lambics here, worth several buys.

As an aside, why do breweries like Timmermans and Lindemans insist on pumping out heinous, syrupy fruit concoctions when they are capable of producing a solid beer like this?

Taste is like a sour champagne.
Surprisingly, I drank the majority of the bottle yesterday and did not feel any alcohol impacts.

(Served in a tulip glass)
Bottled 17/04/12

A- This beer pours a clear golden yellow with a stream of quick tiny bubbles pluming to the surface. The sound of the fizzing snow white head quits as the foam fades to a thin broken film.

S- The great earthy smell of dampness has some bright tartness with some soft hay notes in the finish. Some white cheese character from Brett comes through as it opens along with a dried oak boards note and some wet fresh plaster aromas.

T- The gentle tartness has some slight fruity hints that turn more into pineapple character as it opens. There is an acid note that is mostly lactic but not harsh and grows stronger and brighter as the beer opens but stays mellow with some rhubarb character to it. The bright tartness lingers for a moment after each sip.

M- The full fizz bites the tip of the tongue but there is no astringency or alcohol heat noticed.

O- This is a light bright well blended gueuze that leans a bit more toward the young lambic but in a good way. Lots of soft layers that is very drinkable and sessionable aswell. Worth the price of $16 dollars.

Drank from my Ciney sniffer

A - Pours a hazy light copper colour with no head.

S - Brett, sour grape and apple.

T - Plenty of woody notes to this one. The finish is slightly apple and nominal sourness.

M - Light body with low to medium carbonation

O - Not the best Geuze around but worth a hit.

Deep golden color; cloudy appearance. Opaque. Creamy 1-2 finger head when poured that fully dissipates quickly. Sweet and sour smell; made me want to drink the beer. Distinct smooth sour taste that progresses to a tangy citrus flavor with a dry tart finish. Very refreshing taste that I really enjoyed. Light to medium body with lots of light carbonation; almost champagne-like. Overall an excellent sour that is one of my favorites.
