I’m not a big fan of framboise kriek and this one isn’t different. It has an ok balance of sweetness and sour with the sweetness a little overpowered. A little boring to me.

Pours a deep ruby red, so dark it is almost opaque, with a foaming pink head that quickly reduces. Aroma is dark fruit with a hint of lemon and spice. The flavor follows suit a sharp, sweet, tangy raspberry, almost pop in its fizzy style but with more body. Like its siblings, this is low alcohol and readily sessionable, and it is tart enough not to become quickly boring. An estimable lambic.

Just like the rest of the beers I’ve had from Lindeman’s this beer is in your face and pretty good. Pours a dark ruby/purple color with a light purple/magenta head. Smells and tastes of raspberries, raspberries, raspberries and some funky earthy/basement stuff. Sweet and cloying with a body on the lighter side. Overall I can’t drink more than a small glass of this but it is tasty.

750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 4/7/2014. Pours slightly hazy dark ruby red color with a 2 finger dense dark pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big tart and sweet raspberry, raspberry skin, candi sugar, hay, grass, light pepper, light oak/funk, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with big authentic raspberry fruit presence, candi sugar sweetness, and light earthy yeast notes; with great strength. Taste of big sweet and tart raspberry, raspberry skin, candi sugar, hay, grass, light pepper, light oak/funk, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of fruity/earthy tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart/sweet raspberries, raspberry skin, candi sugar, hay, grass, light pepper, light oak/funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice robustness and balance of big authentic raspberry fruit presence, candi sugar sweetness, and light earthy yeast flavors; with a great sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp, and lightly syrupy/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 2.5%. Overall this is an excellent sweetened fruit lambic style. All around great robustness and balance of authentic raspberries, candi sugar, and light earthy yeast flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable and flavorful sessionable offering.

On tap at Ashley's in Westland. The pour is a brilliant ruby color works nice foamy pink head that falls down to a film and thick collar. The aroma is very heavy on raspberry. There is a little bit of a sweet funk that rolls through on the back end but the fruity sweetness is really good. It's got a wonderful jam quality. The flavor is very similar. It's like really thin fruity jam. I love it! The mouth feel is a bit light, and there isn't as much of a carbonation as I'd like, but it's pretty good. A little syrupy. The aftertaste is beautifully fruity and wonderful. It's a little dry, but it's really good. I'm a fan ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Belle couleur rouge foncé comme du vin avec un col assez résistant. Aromes de framboise sure. Ce n’est pas complexe mais la buvabilité est incroyable!

Rubinowy lambik, szczątkowa piana. Silny aromat świerzych malin. W smaku również nieustający atak malin, przyjemna odświerzająca kwaskowość. Posmak szybko zanika. W tym piwie jest więcej malin niż w tych naszych tzw "sokach malinowych" co już samo w sobie jest dla mnie wystarczającą rekomendacją. Super.

Un truc aux fruits. Un genre que je n’aime pas, même si elle n’est pas écoeurante. Et en plus je n’aime pas la framboise, je ne sais pas pourquoi je l’ai goûtée. ^^ Bouteille bue au bar La tête à l’envers, Vincennes, France, courant septembre 2014.

Très belle robe pourpre, légèrement opaque. La framboise est la saveur dominante mais on sent également d’autres fruits rouges (cerise et fraise) et un duo pomme/poire très agréable, sur une note acide. On sent bien que cette lambic est sucrée, mais cette douceur est très bien équilibrée par l’acidité. Cette bière est plutôt longue en bouche. Une très bonne bière aux fruits.
