I poured a 12oz bottle into the official Lindemans flute glass. It was bottled on 1/20/14 and cost $6.49 $0.54 per ounce).
Appearance: Beautiful shade of magenta/indigo. Pours to a large, pink, foamy head which laces and retains very well.
Smell: Cherry puree.
Taste: I’ve drank all the Lindemans brand of lambics and I’ve enjoyed them all equally for the same reason: they taste delicious. What’s not to like? The only catch, as is with all beers of the ballpark, is that it doesn’t really taste like traditional beer but more like a light bodied carbonated wine. Nothing in the way of true barley or hop character, which is understandable, though I can’t help but feel like I’m drinking an FMB.
The palette is pretty simple: cherry juice. Actually, it’s a combination of cherry, raspberry and strawberry flavors even though it’s only made with red cherries. Plenty of tartness, though it’s restrained. Some added sugar and “natural flavors” are in here I’m sure, though they aren’t faux or distracting, so the result is a well-balanced, authentic-tasting beverage.
Drinkability: Refreshing as juice, but much more satisfying. A perfect level of carbonation with a smooth finish and slightly tart/fruity aftertaste. Ideal with cheesecake, though it works perfectly fine on its own. The ABV is estimated somewhere between 3.5 and 4% which makes it ideal for sessioning (if only it were priced like a session beer rather than a gourmet indulgence).

Piwo butelkowe. Kolor czerwony klarowny, piana obfita z dużymi pęcherzami. W zapachu uderzająco mocny zapach świeżych wiśni. W smaku jak w zapachu, słodkie, kwaskowate wiśnie. Wysycenie duże, musujące.

Eddig csak a Floris és a Mort Subite meggyes sörét ittam / kóstoltam. Az előbbit finomnak tartom (kicsit talán édeskés), az utóbbit viszont felejtősnek tartom. Ez a sör a Florishoz képest savanykásabb, de gyümölcsösebb. Ízlett.

Bottle at home with the wife from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a hazy reddish color with a smaller pinkish head that didn’t last. The aroma and flavor have black cherries, sweet notes like a Luden’s cough drop but enough skins and tart notes to keep this one more interesting than the peach, cherry pit, some earthy character, the tartness is mild, light funk, mild to moderately tart, not sour. Worth trying once.
