4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a bright amber with tons of fizzy champagne-like carbonation, topped off with a very thick head of soft suds. Excellent lacing. Wonderful tart acidic aroma. Also a bit musty.
Tastes fantastic, very tart and tangy, crisp, sharp, and fruity. I taste sour apple mostly, with some light tangy elderberry as well. A drier finish that has just a touch of a tea in the flavor and the aftertaste. Residual crabapple tanginess stays in the mouth for a looong time. Superb carbonation.

750 shared with Brie (my beer-loving girlfriend, not the cheese)... this one surprised me when I first tried it with turdferguson over a year ago... Lindemans fruit lambics are too sweet and hard to drink... this one is full of the (close to cantillon) funk... scrumtrulescent!!

Cloudy orange with a small head and average lacing. Aroma is the usual goods, which is surprising since their other beers are jacked to hell with sugar. The usual sour and fruity notes. Not as extreme as Cantillon, but well balanced. Enjoyable, I was surprised.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. An amber beer with a slight haze underneaty a thick fluffy off-white head. The aroma is quite complex with notes of wood, grapefruit and other fruits, as well as dusty note. The flavor is refreshingly sour with notes of grapefruit, wood, dust, and leather. Leading ot a dry acidic end, where the complex flavors lingers for a long while.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Rating #1000! A beer that I have not had for several years now. Sampled from a 750 ml green bottle this beer poured a bright golden color with a large white head. The aroma is a complex mix of yeasty, musty, tangy and fruity elements. The flavor is very tart and bitter. There is a hint of citrus. There is a strong element reminiscent of sweet tart candies. The finish is long, dry and tart. Probably the most traditional of the Lindemans lineup.

Bottle, 5%. Acidic, slightly moldy aroma, a littl earthy. Amber colour. The flavour is a little acidic with a tiny hint of earth and a dry aftertaste. The driness reminds me of something sugarfree.

funky, tart aroma, lactic sour barn field. rich deep gold with fading short white head. tart, dry, fruity white wine sour. OK, underwhelming esp. given the usual retail price.

Ahhhhhhh, one of my favourites! I’m going to enjoy another bottle of this for dessert on Turkey Day (tomorrow). Believe it or not, my girlfriend actually liked this one, as well as the other Lindeman’s. Very malty, love the slight sourness typical with geuzes. Tastes is actually typical of some spumates I had in Italy. Very white-wine-ish. Lovely.
