4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I like the way Lindemann’s does their fruit lambics. This was the last of their fruits lambics for me, and I enjoyed it. The aroma was incredible, very strong berries and floral aspects. The pour was dark purple, hardly any light passing through, with a light purple-pink head that provided fantastic lacing. The flavor was much of he same with only a hint of lambic-ness underneath, balanced by some sugar to make this most drinkable. Mouthfeel was modearate with significant carbonation. My numbers are going to be higher than how much I really enjoyed this (fruit alert), but what can you do? Phenomenally greaet aroma, appearance, and flavor for the style.

Bottle. Dark wine red pour, neon pink head. Smells of currant, sweet and tangy with a bit of dust. Tastes the same. Sourness is a bit milder than in the Framboise, on the whole a bit sweeter, too. That is, too sweet.

From the bottle.
Pours a reddish purple with a flourescent pink head. The aroma is a funky winery-bottling-room with some black currant; the flavor is an overwhelming blast of thick, sweet, sticky black currant (think melted sorbet or maybe even straight-up Torani syrup). The lambic character is in there somewhere, but one practically has to focus to find it beneath all the fruit and sugar.
As fruit juice, it’s passable. As a beer, no.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Kind of a slight stale aroma. Very attractive cloudy burgundy in appearance with a fine bubbly head. Very tart - a slight metallic aftertaste - not really bad - just rather metallic. I liked the livliness of the carbonation. A refreshing drink to sip. This was my first experience with a lambic. Very unbeer-like. Different but good.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep berry red. Lose ununiform pink head. Nose is acidic with sugar sweet notes, watermelon, cassic, dust, and mint leaf. tounge is acidic with bitter orange and cassic but the mouth is too sweet. There is a problem of balance of the sweet notes. They appear artifical and do not fit the flavour of the beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dangerous purple red
colouration - I took off my good shirt before the first sip. Somewhat metallic cassis aroma. Sweet baseline, light tartness from the berries. Easy drinkable. Sparkly mouthfeel. Doesnt taste bad, but I did expect a bit more lambicness here.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
probably my most favorite Lindemans. Color is amazing almost purple. Fuity, a little too sweet to drink too many. Great after a meal or anywhere you’d think of drinking a dessert wine.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dry and tart and yet also very sweet. Fruity, but not overwhelming. Very rich red color and a good aroma of currants.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Purple color with a small fading pinkish head. Aroma is fruity and burgandy like (black currant). Flavor starts fruity sweet (blackberry) followed by a sharp tartness finishing quite acidic, long and dry. Medium bodied and smooth with lively carbonation.
