I was not a big fan or this beer at all. I love the Framboise and like the Kriek, but this beer is not for me.

there's no better sight than a pink head on a beer. pretty sweet and a little sickly but a very dry finish saves the day

Black currant in color for sure. Deep berry color with a creamy violet head. Dry and vinuopus, rather cardboardy. Sweet berrues and winey, tart and sour. hints of wood, perhaps cedar. Like a flavores italian soda mixed with a merlot. I guess I'm jut not a fan. too far from beer for me. fairly intriguing nonetheless.

This "beer" tastes distinctively like currants, which I quite enjoy - BUT I realize I don't quite have the palate for these Lambics yet. Very tart/sour, and I can see how this would go nicely with cheese (like a wine), but I was taken by surprize by this one, and will have to try one more in the future. It's just a tad sweet, and it has a PINK head!

The head is pink.......PINK! I just can't get over that. Looks and smells like a wine cooler....I wanted a beer. OK, with that out of the way. The flavor is tart and sweet at the same time, which isn't much to my liking, but it's not bad. Lots of currants in the flavor, at a sour, mouth-puckering finish. It is somewhat similar to Quelque Chose, but much more tart, and not nearly as enjoyable.

Pour is beautiful into the flute. Big read head with rocky tower of foam. Aroma is all currents and the taste is sweet and smoothering with blackcurrents. Finish is tart, sour and dry. A great dessert style beer.

Well I'm gonna have to go against the rest because I loved this one. Great gift for Valentines Day too :-) Awesome aroma- not like any other. Nice burgundy color, amazingly sweet but surprisingly not too sour. Ultimate heaven in my mouth.

berry aroma like nothing I've ever smelled, looks like a wine with a thin frothy pink head, spritzy mediciny, tart berriness and a hint of wheat on the finish

UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Smells of mixed berries and oregano. Very thick and syrupy on the mouth, and very tart on the tongue. Aftertaste of oregano is unpleasant, and overall it leaves my mouth very dry. Friends with me tonight described it as cough syrup, steak sauce and vodka.

Off the beaten path of the other 3 widely distributed Lindeman lambics. This had a very interesting aroma: fresh cut grass and dried fruits. There was a very distinct smell of mandarin oranges that really carried over in to the flavor as well, like canned mandarin oranges packed in grapfruit or lime juice. A bit citrusy perhaps, but very interesting. Probably my least favorite Lindeman but good nonetheless.
