4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a bottle at DHVL.
Aroma is very earthy and herbal with a light woody note. A light spiciness to it with moderate oak notes. Light acidity. A touch of citrus and a light cork note.
Pours a fairly clear golden color with some copper hues and some orange with a medium small, thin white head.
Flavor has a light sweetness with some light caramel and butterscotch notes. Some medium light oak notes. A nice herbal character with some earthiness and a bit of wood. Low bitterness. Medium acidity with light citrus and tropical fruit notes. Nice herbal, earthy notes that add a touch of spice.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a better beer than I was expecting. The beer is still lazy, but has great woody and earthy notes. A bit of a cork note, but not corked. Since I can’t try the Cantillon Loerik I thought I would drink this one.

Bottle at DHVL, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out wood, medium barnyard funk, and a little horse blanket. Flavour is very well-balanced, with medium funk, some barnyard, a little leather and wet wood. Extremely well-constructed, with a soft palate. One of the best Lindemans product. Wonderful.
