COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lindemans Tea Beer is a lambic beer brewed with barley malt, wheat and hops. A spontaneous fermentation and maturation on tea leaves results in an artisanal tea-flavoured beer. Adding lemon juice we become a surprising "sweet-sour" lemon taste. Drink it icecold.

It looks a lot like an iced tea, but that’s not even what you’ll get. It has a sour taste that is not that bad although you would want them to go a little lighter on the sugar. The lingering taste is probably the worst part of it,n you’ll want to get rid of it as soon as you can.

bdunhill (250) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2012
With an overwhelming tea aroma, this beer has a dark brown appearance with a light head. It has a sour tea taste with a citrus flavor that lingers for a short time. This beer makes you think that the Germans might have some with Reinheitsgebot!

Bottle. Pours brownish amber. White head. Little brown floaters. Nose of old tea, cinnamon and nutmeg. Pleasant. Taste is a bit abrasive with tons of artificial sugar, tea, cinnamon and nutmeg. Short almost nonexistent finish. Lightish body.

Koelschtrinker (10696) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Süßlich-fruchtiger Geruch, der von einer minimal minzigen Note unterbrochen wird. Extrem süßer Antrunk, der sich erst einmal steigert. Man merkt, dass hier mal eine gewisse Säuerlichkeit vorhanden war, die ich mir zurückwünsche. Verhalten fruchtig, etwas künstlich. Anschließend limonenartig, das Bier wird bis in den Nachgeschmack immer süßer, was zu diesem Moment bereits unangenehm ist. Beitönig ist immer wieder ein Aroma zu erkennen, dass ich der Behandlung mit den Tee-Blättern zuordne, ausnahmsweise mal schlecht, dass ich nie Tee trinke, sonst hätte ich einen Vergleich. Dieser Ton ist interessant, gerät aber durch die extreme Süße in den Hintergrund. Deutlich zu süß! Test vom 3.5.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,9,8,5,8,8 - 7,80

Bottle from Beer Planet. Pours golden with a white head. The aroma is extremely perfumed with strong sweet notes of violets, lemon and hints of cinnamon. Flavour is sweet with a sour hint and has mainly notes of sweet lemon et but also violets. Ends with a long violet after taste.

BMan1113VR (7863) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 8, 2011
Bottle with a best before date of 28Jan2012 thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed yellow body-orange body (not a very pretty hue) with a quick to fade white head. Aromas of lemon, sweetened green tea (Liptons type cheap stuff sold in soda bottles), a bit of funk, honey comb and cake icing. Flavors of SWEET. Wow, really sweet. Sort of ice tea (mass market) like, but sweet. A bit of lemon, and a lot of sweetness. Not a malty sweetness, a sugary one. Like most Lindemans beers, I feel like I might get diabetus from this, but unlike the other ones, the flavor really isn’t nauseating. A strange concoction. Beer cocktail like.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Very strong tasting zesty lemon and lambic sharpness. The tea is quite subtle. Nice refreshing beer.
