3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small bottle from Sip in Tallinn. Pours a beautiful dark red with a pink head. The head drops fast but leaves a nice layer and some dense lacing. On the nose it’s just like freshly opened blackcurrant jam, it’s also got a woody note. High acidity, very (fruity, not sugary) sweet. Fresh blackcurrant taste. Body thick of sweetness, the high carbonation helps cut through it, I really-really like it, I consider this a perfect Saturday afternoon (hangover) drink. This, together with the apple version (which I enjoyed even more).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. 3.5%. Best before 28.11.15. Pours a dark reddish amber, with a dark pink head. Good lacing. Aroma is blackberries! And not artificial! Sourish flavour with more blackberries. Same finish, dry. Overall good, if a bit juice-like. All about the blackberries, but pulls it off rather well. 28.02.15.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz, bottled Nov 19, 2013, to tulip. Pours a dark purple/ berry red with a pinkish purple head. Aroma is sour, sweet berry. Taste is tart, with huge berry taste. A heavy, tart jam like sweetness hangs out in your mouth for quite a while after taking a sip. A slightly acidic sourness sits lurking behind the jam.

Appearance: Dark red with some violet tones, on top theree is a small light Pinkish frothy head which has a bit of sticky lacing. Aroma: Black Currant + light acidity, some earthy tones. Taste: Think Cassis soft drink, so sweet black currant but with some sour tones and a bit of tanine. The aftertaste is quite good and is long lasting black currant with some tanine.

There is something which makes it artificial. Still a Typical Lindemans good fruit beer.
