4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks awesome, with a purply head I’ve 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. I’d heard that Lindemans can be too sweet but I didn’t find that at all in this case. A truly gourmet drink.

355 ml corked and capped bottle. Clear deep purple, light purple foam head. Berry yeasty aroma. Tart taste of sweet and sour fruity black berry and not much else. Average carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Clean acidic dry finish. Overall, it’s just really yummy fruit juice. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

On tap at the Forge. Appearance: beautiful deep purple color, purple head that does not last long but turns to a lasting film. Aroma: black current is very heavy, definitely some other lighter fruit. Palate: light body, juicy and wet texture. Taste: Medium sweetness to medium tartness to medium full sourness. Overall, first Lindeman’s and I am in love. It is so good.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is tart, yet slightly sweet. A fruit forward fragrance. An opaque plumb pour with a finger high pink head and nominal lacing. Dark berries and dark current flavors with hints of citrus. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, a very satisfying lambic that goes to the dark side …sorry Yoda.
