Thanks to rustychiles for the share on this one. Popped the cap with no apparent carbonation. Poured vigorously to generate some minimal bubbling; pours a turbid brown/red with a thin white film, no real head. Aroma has some complex sourness in the background, but it is overshadowed by the back-sweetening. Same goes for the taste. You can tell there was an interesting beer back behind there, but it is extremely over-sweetened on top of that. Pretty much what I expected (except actually a little carbonated) - lackluster, but interesting style to try.

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.

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 (119) - 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 (1226) - 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.
