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. Itís definately not my kind of beer, but nice for a black currant beer. 100326

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 10, 2006
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 Lindemanís stuff. Lots of good black currant flavor which adds some sweetness, but is not overwhelming. Mildly dry, woody finish. Pretty good.

PHXHOPLOVER (50) - LAVEEN, Arizona, USA - SEP 4, 2006
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.

Suttree (5844) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 3, 2006
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.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 30, 2006
Pours blood red with a thin pink head. Aroma of blackberry and blackcurrant. Taste is the same, a bit tart. Little finish but not problematic. Good for sessions if you donít mind throwing lots of money down.

bb (7986) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Bottle. Purplish color with a light pinkish head. Fruity (currant) and sweet aroma. Sweet, fruity, slightly tart flavor. Easy drinking. Sweet, but has decent tartness. Not bad for what it is. Enjoyable.

KAME (160) - California, USA - AUG 19, 2006
Ordered it for a girl, but I had to taste it. Itís a very attractive beer that pours a deep opaque red with a light pink head. Much drier and less sweet than the framboise. I really enjoyed the black currants; not overwhelming, but pleasant. Slight tartness and as mentioned, makes a great desert.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 5, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2007 Thanks to hopdog for this bottle from 2003. Pours a lightly hazy ruby red with some golden orange coming through as well. Head was a lacing light pink creamy head that sustained. Aroma of black currants, some light wheat, very sweet with a hint of oak. Flavor of the same with some more of the grapes and tartness coming through. Iím a fan of the sweet Lindemans Lambics as a dessert.

Nice tart and medium sweet lambic. Great blackberry taste with a bit of grapes and currants. Nice dry finish with lots of fruit.
