Looks like merlot with a medium head floating on top. Cough medicine smell made me hestitant. Very berry on the start turning really tart. Dry sour finish.

2001: At first I thought I was chewing on Band-Aids. Medicinal taste with cherries added. Dry and sour.

Medicinal, dry and the nose of a full basket of cassis blackberries. A bit sour to start and continues on through.

This beer is more than a little medicinal. It is, to tell the truth, just like carbonated Dimetap. The only aspects of this beer that I can be even remotely positive about was the palate and appearance, which I found to be typical of berry-flavored lambics. There must be something about blueberries and beer that simply doesnít mix, because this is the second (of 2) blueberry beers that I have been unable to finish.

A little more purple than the framboise. It was also more dry than the other Lindemans fruit lambics. A little medicinal in the beginning.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Weird weird weird. Aroma so hard to describe: green, grassy, weedy, minty, dandelions. Flavor is much the same, grassy and green. Easier on the mouth than the nose though. Tart. Lemon balm? A hint of blueberry but overall much more herbal than fruity. Hint of vinousness. Rubyish color is nice.

I have never had currants before so I didnít know what to expect with this lambic. But it was pretty pleasant. A little more spicy than the other fruit lambics. Itís sweetness is balanced by a nice touch of sourness. A good lambic but there are better ones.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one is hard for me to rate because I have nothing to compare it to. Color was a deep purple with a smooth medium head. Strong aroma of a rasberry pie with some blackberry thrown in. Flavor is of cranberry at first followed by that same rasberry and blackberry. Overall it wasnít bad but aa little on the wine like sweet side.

Iíve run the gambit and tried all the flavors now... I was most excited for this one, but I prefer the raspberry and especially the peach. It did have one of the coolest heads on it that Iíve ever seen. A beautiful merlot color rushes up... if I rated it purely on looks, it would get an A+.
