3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is very nice. The dark red beer with pink foam promises a sweet drink. The aroma does have some yeast and even some barnyard weirdness. Flavor is sweet for sure, lots of sugar and fruit juice, but this is also the most sour of the Lindemans fruit lambics. It is OK for a beer to be sweet, and this is an excellent dessert beer.

(Tap at Stockholm Beer Festival) Easily the most outrageous beer I’ve seen in my entire life. Not all that bad though, the cassis are real (albeit slighty too powerful) but the lambic beneath is too shy to make this baby fly. Bring on the funk says I..

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2010 Bottled at Pannrummet, Gothenburg. Clear, dark red with a bubbly pink head. Aroma of black-currant and some sweetness. Sweet flavor with berries and some sour notes. Quite sweet in the mouth. Medium body. A sweet, yet palate-cleansing beer, leaving that sugary-feeling on your teeth. Rating: 3-4-3-10-2.4. 060825
Bottle, 375ml with wine-style cork. A crystal clear, dark red beer topped by a pink, dense head. Lots of black currant on the nose, with white sugar, some cellar and a whiff of funk. Too sweet on the palate, almost sticky, with some sourness and a good dash of black currants. Medium body fullness. It’s definately not my kind of beer, but nice for a black currant beer. 100326

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours red with a fluffy and emasculatingly pink head. The aroma is very floral with noticeable black currant and some musty sourness. The flavor is somewhat sour, at least moreso than some other sweet Lindeman’s stuff. Lots of good black currant flavor which adds some sweetness, but is not overwhelming. Mildly dry, woody finish. Pretty good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark purple with a small pink head. Intense flavor of currants and berries. Very sweet, but enough sourness to balance. Becomes a little sweet and thick during the second glass. Too sweet for session, but good as a dessert wine type thing. Chicks dig it.

Purplish red, pink head. Strong blackberry aroma. Flavor is blackberry and raspberry, with a slight lemony edge. Perhaps a few more acidic flavors, too. Nice, not overly sweet.
