The_Osprey (7317) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2016
25cl bottle at home in Blaendulais as Lindemans Cassis Lambic, 3.5%, BB Aug 2018. Purple reddy, translucent with a foamy hot pink head, leaving full lacing. Aroma is Ribena and blackcurrant cordial. Body is rounded with soft carbonation. Taste is hugely syrupy sweet, tangy sourness, undiluted blackcurrant cordial, intense sugars, tooth-coating. The kriek is also extremely sweet but it seems to work better than this (I had them side-by-side). Not that enjoyable or drinkable. I wonder whether a little age would help it.

rumore (245) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 12, 2016
From bottle. Pours plumlike, with a limited pink head. Aroma is strongly berries. Body is relatively light, with some carbonation and marked astringency. Taste is very sweet, so much so that it covers almost completely the acidity. The latter is mostly perceivable because of the astringency. Finish is not too long. And more astringency.

Chyba najlepiej zbalansowany lambic od Lindemansa. Posiada średnio wysoką i średnio trwałą pianę, ktra zostawia spory lacing. W aromacie czuć czarną porzeczkę, nuty stajenne i kwasek. Aromat jest intensywny. W smaku natomiast najwięcej dają o sobie znać czarne porzeczki. Piwo jest bardzo słodkie i bardzo kwaśne. Nagazowane wysoko. Mimo wszystko bardzo dobre.

Intense notes of cassis, dark red with a thin head, light body, quite fizzy, good sourness and sweetness at the same time...very good, very refreshing, i appreciate.

Clear red, pink head. Aroma: black currant, some sweet notes/ candies. Medium sourness and heavy sweetness (too sweet). Flavour black currant. Some wood at finish.

Piwo w kolorze ciemno fioletowym z dosc obfita lekko rozowa sredniopecherzykowa piana. W aromacie kwasnosc, winogrona i czarne porzeczki. W smaku troche za slodkie, lekkie i wodniste z wysyceniem na srednim poziomie bez zauwazalnej goryczki. Jest kwasnie i owocowo czyli calkiem fajnie.

Olorin (22) - Graz, AUSTRIA - NOV 12, 2016
375 ml bottle. Clear dark purple colour, medium head mostly lasting, good lacing, soft carbonation. Nose is berry fruit. In the taste the sour notes outweigh the sweet ones, intense fruity aroma which is long lasting in the finish, only minimal bitter notes. For sure a well done drink, but no real beer in my opinion. Sorry lambic enthusiastics, its not my style.
