FROTHINGSLOSH (7449) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled from a 12 oz green bottle this beer poured a very dark red color with a huge raspberry sherbet colored head. The aroma was sour, funky barnyard with a lightly tart and fruity undertone. The flavor is tart, tangy and sour with a moderate grapey undertone a very sugary middle and a very long and very tart finish.

gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 5, 2007
Very thick beer with little to no head. Tastes of strong fruit and light alcohol. Basic generic rating (insert fruit flavor here). *I like the currant the best.

jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 29, 2007
Pours deep purple with medium purple head. Nose is grape must, horseblanket, cream. Flavor is initial intense sourness, currant, and creamy malt. There is a powerful base of earthy, woody lambic flavor. Creamy mouthfeel. Lingering sour finish... makes my mouth water. Good.

chicagobears (463) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2007
375ml bottle poured a grape purple with a small head. Aroma of berries, grapes, and fermenting yeast. The flavor surprised me a bit cause it wasnt all fruit like the other Lindemans Ive sampled. Besides the sweet currants their is a back line of acidity, woodiness, and lambic yeast character.

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 20, 2007
Bottle. Pours a dark body with nice head, great look. Aroma is of grapes, black mission figs, faint berries. Flavor is sweet and tart berry, grapes. A little syrupy. This is my favorite Lindemans fruit Lambics by far.

ABUSEDGOAT (2683) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2007
Grapejuice pour with a pinkish head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is sugary with currants, minor barnyard notes. Very sugary, very sweet. Sorta enjoyable, but not a real lambic.

WeeHeavySD (3385) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 12, 2007
375ml bottle. Pours grape juice purple with a red pinkish head like nothing I have every seen. Aroma is sweet and fruity full of currant. The taste is sweet and very faithful to the black currant its based on. Obviously a particular style of lambic, seperate from the traditional ones, but nonetheless its tasty.

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!
