3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Pours a deep reddish-purple, with a large crimson-tinged head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves decent lacing. The aroma is mainly sweet blackcurrant, with some sour notes lurking in the background. To be honest, it smells mainly of Ribena. The taste is, thankfully, much more pleasant. It is quite strongly sour to begin, with some faint woody notes leading into sweetly fruity blackcurrant set against a nicely sour background. The fruitiness of the blackcurrant comes through more strongly in the finish, and there is a pleasantly sour aftertaste. I find fruit lambics can be a bit hit and miss; it really depends on the fruit. Blackcurrant seems to work pretty well with the sourness of the beer itself, although it does rather dominate the aroma. All in all, however, this is a very pleasant beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: Dark red with some violet tones, on top theree is a small light Pinkish frothy head which has a bit of sticky lacing. Aroma: Black Currant + light acidity, some earthy tones. Taste: Think Cassis soft drink, so sweet black currant but with some sour tones and a bit of tanine. The aftertaste is quite good and is long lasting black currant with some tanine.
thin body, light sparkling carbonation.
There is something which makes it artificial. Still a Typical Lindemans good fruit beer.

Bottle 0.25 l, Carrefour, Wrocław, Poland.
Burgundowe, mętnawe piwo z puszystą, niezbyt obfitą pianą oraz porzeczkowym zapachem. W smaku początkowo lekko słodkawe, następnie zdominowane przez cierpki, trochę kwaskowy, porzeczkowy posmak.

Fruit sour tasting bottle share. Cassis and cherry aroma. Nice lean body for thinking of fruit can be cloying. Really strafing to like these.

*Old rating 25cl, best before 10.05. Schön johannisbeer-herbes Bier. Leichte Säure ist spürbar, die Johannisbeere ist fruchtig aber nicht zu intensiv süß. Spannende, süffige Kombination.
