A pity…

Lindemans used to be a good brewery, specialized in lambic, gueuze, faro and other lambic-derived beers. Lambic is a spontaneously fermented beer with a pleasant sour taste, and the gueuze is a mixture of old, ripe lambic and young lambic. Or at least, so it should be. But despite claims on their website about producing a real gueuze to counter the modern trend of light and sweetened gueuze-type beers, the Lindemans gueuze is sweetened with an artificial sweetener. Such a waste of a lambic. It isn’t as if there’s enough of it. Now the Lindemans gueuze tastes like some light soda with a dash of vinegar and a little alcohol. And it leaves a horrible aftertaste, a bland bitter film all over the tongue.
