Grovlam (4208) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2007
Huge deep red creamy head that lasted a very long time. Then left thick lacing on top. Somewhat clear and very dark red colour. This was a lovely blackcurrant aroma with some fruit and fresh apple, hint of vinegar and citrus and what felt like somewhat dusty feel in nose. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and dry texture. Light to moderated and well balanced sweet and sour flavour. Excellent blackcurrent finish. The best blackcurrent beer that I have ever had!

750ml bottle from Florians. Pours virtually opaque dark red-purple with nearly no head. Leaves a little lacing as it goes. Smells fruity, like berries (black currants Im sure, though Ive never had them). Full-flavored with berries at the forefront with a good amount of sourness toward the finish (though on overpoweringly so). Slightly woody in its flavor as well. Wow, this flavor is great - one of the best tasting fruit beers Ive had. Much less carbonation than I expected, could use a little more in my humble but true opinion. Otherwise, medium bodied. Drinkable for what it is, but is a bit more of a sipper. Overall, an excellent beer and one of the finest fruit beers Ive had - better than the raspberry version.

bhensonb (14486) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 10, 2007
Aroma of, what else, black currants. [From Wikipedia: "Blackcurrants have a very sweet and sharp taste. They are made into jelly, jam, juice, ice cream, cordial and liqueur. In the UK, Europe and Commonwealth countries, some types of confectionery include a blackcurrant flavour, but this is generally missing in the United States, even within the same brand. Instead grape flavour in candy (including grape jelly) almost mirrors the use of blackcurrant in both its ubiquity in the USA, and its rarity on the eastern side of the Atlantic."] An aromatic high. Clear ruby color. A whitish pinkish head that stays for awhile and trys to lace. Medium mouthfeel. Starts with a fruity sweet/sour balance that puckers the mouth. The lambic sour is balanced by the fruit sweetness. Get some imported black currant jelly for your toast. Toast, sour cream and bc jelly. This lambic is sort of the liquid version. To die for. Unless you can get dark chocolate with cacao nibs. Which goes very well with this ale. Magnificent.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Dark red with massive foamy pink head. Nice sour nose with berry overtones. No where near as sweet as I expected coming from Lindemans, with a smooth, thick sour finish.

Skyview (5824) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Large bottle shared by akevitt at our weekly beer rating group meeting. Pours a dark grape-juice purple brew with a thick fizzy reddish violet head. The head stay around and leaves nice lacing. Aroma is ripe dewberries, powdered sugar, and tart currants. Taste is syrupy with high carbonation and a touch of yeast. Finish is tart/sour and thick.

mtdshn (173) - Moline, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2007
Bottle. Poured a rushing, deep purple with at first a large foamy head, that dissipated to a small, light head. Aromas of mostly blackberries, some sugary sweetness. Flavor is a bit tart at first, then sour, then a really nice grape bubblegum comes out. A really delicious beer.

Happy 29th Birthday to my wife!

April 21, 2007 - Today was my wifes 29th birthday and so she received a bottle of Lindemans Cassis Lambic as part of her gift from me (she has really been wanting to try this one). These tasting comments are mostly hers... Lindemans Cassis Lambic is really pretty. It is purple in color (like grape juice) and transparent with a foamy pinky-purple head. The head lasts the entire time and leaves delicate, feminine lacing. The aroma is currants with a hint of funk (musty?) and yeast. The flavor is definitely currant all around and it has a moderate level of sweetness. [I also thought that is had some ripe mulberry taste and tartness to it.] The mouthfeel is thicker than expected (like thin syrup), but well received. There is some sparkling sensation on the palate, but it isnt overdone (light carbonation). It is also very smooth and nice to drink. Overall my wife thought that this was a very good and interesting Lambic. She enjoyed the different and farily uncommon fruit, but didnt think that the Black Currant was quite as good as the Lindemans Peach or Raspberry... Happy Birthday!

355 ml (12 fl oz) corked and capped bottle from Rivers Bend.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2007 Darker blue-purple color with almost no head. Very sweet aroma with a nice berry taste to match. A bit tingly and pretty tasty. One of the better lindmans beers.
