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.

Bottle. Pours brown in colour with big white head. Aroma of tart fruits, some wood, green apples and brown sugar. In taste sour-sweet with apples and grapes flavours mixed with sugary ones. Medium body, high carbonation, a bit cloying-sweet in the finish. A bit too sweet, but ok to drink.

355mL bottle poured into a tulip -- light brown, syrup looking. Itís sweet and not very complex. Iím not a huge fan.

Piana dosc szybko opada do zera. Aromat stajenny, kolokwialnie můwiąc, wali troszkę konskim plackiem. Mhmm, to co beergeecy lubią najbardziej. Lekko rumowy. W smaku dość kwaśne, słodkie, aż szczękają zęby. Zaskakująco rześkie i pijalne, jak na taką słodycz. Wysokie nasycenie. Pić z zatkanym nosem.

Fles gedeeld door Inoven, het bier heeft een heldere doch donker bruine kleur met weinig schuim. Het heeft een heerlijk zoet zure smaak.

If you have a habit to add any juice to beer donít profane it any longer only start to drink Lindemans. Taste of this is interesting mix of sweetness which welcomes your tongue and acidity which seats on it widely like on couch.

Look of hazy brandy, no head. Aroma of grapes, white fruits, barnyard, leather. Fruity, winey, sweet and sour taste. A bit too sweet.
