DarkMagus (472) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 8, 2007
Poured a golden straw color with a moderate white head which quickly dissipated and left behind just a few small bubbles. Aroma was musty, woody, and just slightly fruity... very interesting and mysterious. Flavors were pungent and powerfully acidic. Sour apples, unripened cherries, and unripened grapes, along with an interesting musty woodiness and something like rotten (fermenting) fruits. Mouthfeel is light and juicy and finishes extremely astringent and dry. This beer made my mouth water after each sip, making me want more and more. Great stuff. I can’t believe there was a time when I couldn’t tolerate these kinds of beers...

Juelze (1141) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 750ml bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with nice white head. Aroma is awesome! Smells of must, yeast, sour apple, and the dust of a fresh rasberry on the vine. Tastes of sour apple, slight citrus, and sour green grapes. Nicely carbonated and slightly sweet and funky on the tongue this is a great lambic and I must stock up!

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JAN 15, 2007
Hazy, orange, thin white head. Rocky aroma with notes of acid and citrus. Acidic flavour with notes of malt and fruit. Somewhat sweet with a salty finish. A bit thin.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 14, 2007
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.

skibumphishead (259) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 5, 2007
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!!

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - DEC 30, 2006
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.

Ungstrup (30392) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 24, 2006
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5523) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2006
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.

MiP (14447) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2006
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.

xproudfoot (750) - Paleolithic, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2006
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.
