Bottle: I love lambic for many reasons as i stated in other ratings. This is another good fruit beer, although I prefer the cherry and raspberry, I have the utmost respect (as a homebrewer) for the process.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sweet aroma - strong, but soft at the same time. Great cloudy red body with fluffy pink head. Taste is berries - sweet/sour/tart up front, but thinning out at the back - I thought it would have a dry-er finish. At the end is a nice hint of minty freshness (and no, I didn't just brush my teeth). Suitable for all ages.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Red color. Strong blackcurrant aroma. Very sweet and syrupy. A soft drink, not a beer…

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong blackcurrant aroma. Very sweet and sour blackcurrant flavor. The cassis juice doesn't leave room for other flavors. Occasionally a decent lambic flavor shines through. Just a bit milky. A nice teenagers drink, also suitable for adults with a sweet tooth.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle imported.
Nice little pop when I unleashed the cork. Slight musty smell and a bit of fruit/berry in the initial whiff. Poured, the head is fine and a light pink, but goes away fairly quickly. The color is a deep ruby/purple color.
Aromas of fruit, tin, vinegar and mold--but in a reassuring, good way--like a beer that's been laid down forever that absorbs some fine hint of dust from it's bottle.
The taste is pucker and deep round berries--smoother and less tart than a framboise, with a less assertive fruit flavor.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep cherry/mohagany color with a pink/beige dense head. Strong aromas of fruit: Blackberries, blueberries, cranberries and currants. Additional strong nose of goldenrod in the fall, I could nearly sneeze. Sweet tart berry flavors. Really is quite crisp and clean in the finish. This shall be the brew with dinner this thanksgiving.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark violet colour with a light purple head. Pure black currant aroma, very potent with that almost minty (wintergreen) aroma and a pungent tartness and sweetness. Medium to Light-bodied; Strong carbonation; Potent black currant flavour with a slight maltiness. Aftertaste tart and subtley sweet from the fruit. Overall, this is exactly like how I expected it to be. Maybe I'm a sucker for these fruity lambics, but I really enjoy them! Black currants truly make this one a treat. I bought this twelve ounce bottle at Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 02-November-2003.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice, tartness is firm but not overwhelming. Currants come through giving this a unique fruit character. My favorite, I think, of the lindeman's lambics

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strange but not bad, I've had just about thier entire line but this was the first time I've ever ran across this and figured I'd try it.
Tart, fruity and entirely quaffable as I recall.
At the time I was about a 7 on the buzz scale.
