3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 370 ml. Age roughly 1 year piror to tasting. Poured cloudy deep ruby with dark purple highlights and a good sized, rocky, violet coloured head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of fruit acids with freshly crushed raspberries, cranberry juice, lemon juice and light musty/yeasty notes. Flavor was also of tart fruit acids with tart raspberries, sour cherries, light notes of lemon juice, musty/yeast notes and a dry crisp finish. Light bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/tart mouthfeel, lightly syrupy texture and a good length finish. Very well balanced and unbelievably refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from 355mL bottle. Medium dark ruby red with darker pinkish-white head. Dominant raspberry aroma and taste. Fairly sweet, not much sour in here at all. Creamy-ish texture. Good, but could use some sourness.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Ahhhhh yes... My first beer. Totally random for a first beer right? This was the beer where I was like... Damn beer can be not gross.
Aroma is strong raspberry. Tart.
Looks amazing. Ruby color with decent lacing.
Taste is solid. Very sweet this one. Raspberry notes throughout and the finish is remarkably like a raspberry.
PAlate is perhaps a bit too sweet. But solid beer.
Overall maybe I’m biased because of the nostalgia. But this is a solid beer. Perfect for convincing people that beer can be tastey.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very deep dark murky red with a pink nicely retaining head. Aroma is very sweet raspberry jam. Very tart, but with a certain dusty funkiness of the Lambic coming through as well. Taste as expected: strong acidity of the raspberries and Lambic, with a rather nice tart and refreshing finish. But overall I think it’s excessively sweet and sour. Syrupy and sticky on the palate. Need a glass of water to go with this. The active carbonation does not help. My least favourite Fruit Lambic by Lindemans - I do like raspberries though.

Schöne dunkelrote Färbung im Glas, bis in den Schaum., der später als leichter, rötlicher Rand über bleibt. Im Geruch Beeren, sauer. Im Trunk erst sehr süß, enorm fruchtig, dann sauer, kaum Abgang. Schwer zu bewerten, eher ein Fruchtsaft.

I got this from de Tolly joogipood. Aroma is quite sour, but I kinda like it. It has strong raspberry taste. I wish there was more foam. Overall it’s a nice mixture of sour and sweet raspberry taste.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
