Looks awesome, with a purply head Ive never seen before. High carbonation. Tart, so very tart, and complex like a fine wine. This is just superb, I can just imagine the lambic sitting there with the blackcurrants in the secondary fermentation slowly creating the flavours blessing my mouth. Id heard that Lindemans can be too sweet but I didnt find that at all in this case. A truly gourmet drink.

explosivedog (188) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 26, 2016
250ml bottle. Pours a deep purple with no head and noticeable fizziness. Aroma is all blackcurrants, with some herb I really cant pinpoint. Its very fizzy in the mouth (playful is I believe my standard word in these situations) and the flavour is big blackcurrant but those bubbles bring a nice amount of sourness which explode in the mouth. Really beautifully put together. I think the average of this suffers from the fact it doesnt really taste at all like a beer, but its a really nice beverage. My rating would be higher if I liked blackcurrants more...
