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.

15/VIII/14 - on tap @ Internationaal Streekbierenfestival (Zwevegem) - BB: n/a (2014-906) Thanks to Johan and Fokke for sharing today’s beers!
Clear ruby red beer, creamy pink head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, very fruity, black currants, syrupy, sugary, forest fruit candy. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very fruity, bit sugary, sour notes, lemony, sour berries, bit syrupy sweet. Aftertaste: some bitter tannins, maybe due to the skins of the currants? Sourish, red berries, syrupy sweetness, lemony, cherry flavoured chewing gum.

Variation on sweet kriek practically invented by Lindemans. A deep reddish purple beer with thin lilac head and aroma and taste dominated by sugar and blackcurrant, crčme de cassis-like but without the alcohol, ascorbic acidity and spicy sweet finish. Lambic is only there for structural reasons but hardly noticeable. I can imagine this type of beers has its amateurs, but I am not one of them, though I respect the fact that Lindemans chose this way in order to survive - otherwise one of the best unblended lambics might have gone lost.

Bardzo zaskakujące piwo... które, gdyby nie było podpisane, wzięłabym za gazowany sok porzeczkowy. Ładna, dość mroczna etykieta i zaskakujące połączenie korka z kapslem.. samo piwo natomiast o nieco dziwnym zapachu, nie do końca porzeczkowym, natomiast w smaku czuć lekką kwaskowatość i cierpkość owoców z ledwie wyczuwalnymi nutami piwa :D

Surprising. peppery smell and flavor to go with the currents. Nice fruity sweetness but not cloying. Good lambic.

Bright purple - could be a kids’ fizzy drink bursting with chemicals were it not for the frothy pink head. Very fruity aroma, red fruit flavours, with blackcurrant unsurprisingly at the head, against a sour background. Fizzy and light bodied. So, it comes in somewhere between Kir Royale and Vimto! I wouldn’t drink it all the time, but I think it’s a good thing that beer has these crazy relatives on the outer edges of its family.

From 0,25l bottle, BBD: 07NOV2015. Pours deep hazy purple liquid, small pink creamy head. Aroma: black currant, tar, Taste: heavy sweet, light to medium bitter, heavy sour, black currant, lemon, Palate: medium body, sticky texture, fizzy carbonation, long bitter sweet finish. Overall: good, but too much sweet and fruity, killing all lambic notes except the sourness.

Ik drink graag fruitbieren, maar dit was absoluut mijn ding niet. De slechtste van Liefmans dat ik geprobeerd heb.
