Aroma: blackcurrant, and really not much else. Appearance: hazy, dark purple, off-white head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: intense blackcurrant again, some tart. Overall: one-dimensional Fruit Beer, not really my thing. Bottle at The Dove, South Hackney.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark red body with a light rosa head.
Rich black currant aroma and flavour. Very little malt. Rather sweet taste with no bitterness but a fair amount of sour, citrusy notes.
Light/medium body with smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation.
This may not be a real lambic beer to some, but I really like the intense fruity character. Not complex but still very tasty, and black currants are wonderful.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.25 l bottle from ’Sterk Avondverkoop’, bottled in June 2015. Clear, deep red with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, pinkish head. Sourish-fruity, slightly sweetish aroma of black and redcurrant, elderberries and hints of wood and sorbet powder. Very sweet, slightly sourish, fruity taste of sorbet powder, elderberries, red and blackcurrant, followed by a short, sweetish-sourish finish with hints of wood. Thin to medium body, slightly effervescent and astringent mouthfeel, average carbonation. Definitely one of the better non-authentic fruit lambics by Lindemans, but the excessive, rather artificial sweetness is still too much for me.
