355ml bottle. Pours a hazy, dark red with a large, frothy, long lasting, pink head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of black currants, yeast and a hint of oak. Sweet flavour of black currants and sugar with a tart, acidic, dry oaky finish. Light body with an oily texture and average carbonation.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.25 l bottle from ’Sterk Avondverkoop’, bottled in June 2015. Clear, deep red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, pinkish head. Sourish-fruity, slightly sweetish aroma of black and redcurrant, elderberries and hints of wood and sorbet powder. Very sweet, slightly sourish, fruity taste of sorbet powder, elderberries, red and blackcurrant, followed by a short, sweetish-sourish finish with hints of wood. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent and astringent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Definitely one of the better non-authentic fruit lambics by Lindemans, but the excessive, rather artificial sweetness is still too much for me.

Decent Americanized lambic. Pours a deep rubbishy purple with an off white head. Aromas of blueberries, blackberries, currants and faint oak. Great bottle presentation with foil, cage, and cork. Faint Brett flavors with a dry, oak, hay finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2016 Pretty good aromas, fruity and all. Not much to say.
Great appearance, ruby colour. But poor foam.
Taste is good, fruity, acidity. What you’d expect from a fruit beer, the yeast/hops taste doesn’t even exist, if I’d drank it without knowing it was a beer I may have told it’s something else, haha.
Here comes my favourite part the palate, I feel the fruity taste everywhere in my mouth when I drink this beer and on the tip of my tong a little sweetness, followed by a little acidity/sweety mix. The taste stands quite for a long time for a fruit beer ! Especially on the tong.
Lindemans for you ! Nice beer.
If you like beers for the yeasty/hopy/malty side you should try something else. If you like fruits and delicate flavours and aromas rush for it.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours reddish-purple -- quite a lovely shade, really -- with a light red-purple, fine-grained, lacy head. Nose is cassis, talc, elderflower, rose, lime, and a touch of sparkling grape juice. On the tongue, it’s quite tart, a touch sweet, and very mouth-watering; intensely flavored with both fruit and fruit skin flavors, it goes a touch astringent towards the center of the palate then comes back with a rush of salivating fruit towards the end. Finish is long and tart. The best of the Lindemans I’ve had.
