Great desert beer but not too sweet like some of the other fruit lambics. Best enjoyed in the fall.

mateuszk (2014) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle/draught. Dark red/purple in colour, purple head. Aroma and taste of blackcurrant, moderately sweet with light tartness. Medium body, quite oily texture, soft carbonation and sweet-tart finish. Really nice even though it is sweetened there is light sour note. Definitely the best from sweetened Lindemans lambics.

Lane. Aromat domowego soku z czarnej porzeczki. Dość słodkie, trochę kwaśne. Słodycz za bardzo dominuje.

I bought this bottle in Paris and we drank it these last days at home. It is an interesting beer. First, the color is a deep pink color, relatively high carbonation, sourness, malt, cassis juice. It is important, in my opinion, to drink it cold.

Lonick (1195) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Keg @ Six North Opening Night. Pours red, bright dark red almost purple, thinish pink head. Nose is black current a touch sour on the nose as well, it smells like diluting juice and then it just smells of more black currents. Taste is as the nose but a bit more sour, i loved it.

Blueshawk (349) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2016
- wunderschöne lila Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - starkes Aroma nach schwarzer Johannisbeere und etwas Holz - perfekte Carbonisierung - der Antrunk überwältigt einem geradezu mit der säuerlichen Johannisbeere - Mittelteil und Abgang bleiben unverändert, gehen nie ins wässerliche oder eine sonstige Verirrung Fazit: Ein perfektes Lambic

Ysok02 (995) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 6, 2016
Superbe robe grenat, mousse crémeuse. Nez qui allie des notes de baies de cassis, à celle du lambic sur un fond de levures. Bouche à l’attaque acidulée, fine bulle, belle ampleur et longue finale sur le cassis. Un très beau mélange entre lambic et cassis.

hajsman (63) - Gdañsk, POLAND - SEP 1, 2016
Dark red with low pink head. I was afraid that will smell like cat piss but gives nice not so strong blackcurrant juice aroma. It’s not so sweet like raspberry or cherry Lindemans lambics wich is definitely good thing. Very refreshing

explosivedog (280) - Auckland, 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 can’t pinpoint. It’s 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 doesn’t really taste at all like a beer, but it’s a really nice beverage. My rating would be higher if I liked blackcurrants more...

MihaKu (44) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - AUG 26, 2016
Not my tullip of beer. Blackcurrant, herbs, earthy. Violet-red, clear body, minimal, pink head. Lightly sweet and bitter, heavy sour. Light bodied, thin feel. Fizzy, with long finish.
