All right, but I couldnít just sit and drink this as I can with the other Lindemanís lambics. Too sour; perhaps a mixture with (ye gods) 7-Up would improve the texture and balance the sourness. Tastes like German jelly candies, which I enjoyed as a kid.

My favorite of the Lindemanís lambics. Itís not as fruity (itís currant, duh!) and has a little bit of a pine aroma and taste (itís currant, duh!). Funny thing is: I donít like currants.

Very, very tart. Long drawn out tart aftertaste which i love. Sweet up front. Nice dark red color, lovely aroma.

Said to be two to three year old bottle. Itís the yeasty nose qualities that make this interesting. A country, grassy and dusty aroma on sour berry and grape. The taste is very effervescent crisp, refreshing, citrus sour, tangy, with the more of the above fruit. I would love to test for residual sugar. This bottle feels less than 3.0% and is not sugary at all.

A weak link in the Lindemans line. It just didnít do it for me as much as the others.

Good lord, why would someone make a beer with black currants? They suck, and so, in turn, does this beer. It also seems more sugary-sweet than the much better framboise and kriek. Thumbs down.

This is one of the fruitier lambics Iíve tried. I have to admit up front in fairness that I have never tried black currants before. That being said, this had a pleasant sweet/sour taste with copious amounts of fruit. Tasted almost like a fruit soft drink, in fact, without seeming cheap.

Very sweet. Heavy, sticky body. They need to ease up on both the sugar and the blackcurrant essence.
