Ritzn (1263) - GERMANY - FEB 8, 2017
Red/purple with pink bubbles. Aroma is cassis/gooseberries, slight brown sugar, little champagne. Taste is sugary sweet with lots of fruity sourness and cassis bitterness, some fizzy tablet. Well rounded. Full bodied, easily drinkable. Bubbly. Girlfriend approves.

bdleedahl (430) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 31, 2017
Mild sourness, but strong fruitiness. So very good for fruit beer, but not a sour i'll keep buying over and over again. The black currants do complement the beer well though. Sobeys bottle.

josanguapo (1559) - SPAIN - JAN 31, 2017
From Alcampo. In Teku glass. After dinner. 25cl. Pleasant, the fruit doesnt feel artificial nor excessive and the sourness is just the adequate. However, in the long it ends up tiring a bit

Poncjusz (136) - POLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Aromat czarnej porzeczki, czerwonych owocw, liści porzeczki, domowego soku porzeczkowego i to coś co przypomina ziemistość. Kolor rubinowy, soku z wiśni. Piana tworzy się wysoka, opada, ale zostaje dość gruby kożuch i porządnie oblepia szkło. W smaku kwaśność owocw, porzeczkowa, winny posmak, słodycz syropowa, ale tylko zaznacza obecność. Dominacja owocw lepsza niż w pozostałych lambikach tego browaru. Wysycenie średnie świetnie podkreśla owoce, pijalność średnia poprzez zbyt nachalną kwaśność, delikatna cierpkość.

beer-yum (1619) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 19, 2017
Restrained tart aroma in a cloudy red brown pour. Taste is tart to start with a fruity sweetness kicking in later to balance. Not really my style - but a great example of it regardless.

Demens (415) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 15, 2017
0,25l bottle. Hazy purple colour with small quickly disappearing pink head. Aroma: Cassis jam. The first fruit lambic that has a real fruity aroma, not just bubblegum. Taste: Tarty fruity start with a stronger acidic sour mouthfeel. Has a light bitter tone too. Very fruity and pleasent but the other lambics had more from the typical lambic caracters but they had a more artifical fruity caracter. This tastes quite real. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Medium lasting sour/dry finish. Very good in the fruity tone but lacks the lambic/beer style.

hrabren (1174) - Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 31, 2016
0.25 l bottle from Pivoteka, Zagreb. Shared with lovely Anja. Murky light purple, light small pink to off-white head. Strong black currant juice aroma. Strong fruit flavors, overwhelming, topping the sourness, like a good juice. Medium body, soft to medium carbonation, dry fruity finish. More like a juice, than a sour.

The_Osprey (7824) - 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.
