ComradeK (978) - The Vale of Dundas, - DEC 24, 2012
375ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber, with a large white head, which lasts fairly well, and leaves reasonable lacing. The aroma is a mix of sour, musty, woody and faint leathery notes. It opens with a nice, strong sourness, with perhaps some redcurrant flavour playing through it. The influence of the candy sugar can be felt moving into the mid-palate, which offers some sweetness along with some woody notes. The sour flavour and slight redcurrant notes reappear towards the finish, which is a deft balance between sour and sweet. This is the first non-fruit lambic I have been able to lay my hands on, and it is not disappointing - it certainly lives up to my expectations.

Sebilinz (439) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JUL 10, 2014
Bottle. Nice reddish amber color with white head. Aroma is sour with fruits, blackcurrant? Taste is sour with some sweetness some fruits hints of malts. Aftertaste is sour with sweetness and very low bitterness. Nice but a little bit to sweet.

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 9, 2014
Lasting yellow frothy head atop an orange body. Very light carbonation. Nose of tart cider. Surprisingly sweet, very apple-ly. Minor sour cherry. A bit of a letdown.

kamwitsta (107) - POLAND - JUL 5, 2014
Smells of rotting fruits and a little bit of dust and vinegar. Pours very dark orange, almost dark brown, with a small, dissipating head. Tastes sweet, oh so sweet, and sour. Medium body, a bit sticky, below average carbonation, sweet and sour finish. For a fruit wine, it’d be too sweet; for a beer, it’s way too wine-like; and definitely too sweet.

OmegaX (1207) - Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2014
375ml at home. Pours a clear amber color with a quickly fading head. Nose is funky, some light lemony notes. Flavor is sweet up front with a funky, more bitter finish. Raw cane sugar notes all throughout. It’s similar to the other lindemans but without fruit. I liked it.

drsordr (986) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle pour rich copper with moderate light tan head. Nose whole lot a funk. Acetic mixed with citrus. Taste initial tartness is quickly overcome by candy sugar. Then the tart fruit flavors show. Finish reminiscent of candied apples. Carbonation fades quickly leading to a syrupy mouth feel.
