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 (5868) - 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.

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.

Marko (5415) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 7, 2007
Bottle from a shop here in Split
The last Lindemans available here in Croatia. Label says 3.5%, but the importers sticker says 4%. Odd. Anyway, I dont like blackcurrant much, so I was a bit reluctant to try this. It poured a deep, nearly black red with the pinkest head Ive ever seen. Its firm, thick, and went away slowly leaving heaps of lacing and remains. The nose is almost all sharp dusty yeast, with just a hint of underlying fruitiness. The taste, however, shows a surprising lack of yeastiness after that (or not, knowing Lindemans). Light blackcurrant and black grapes with a sharp (for the brewery), but not all that unpleasant, acidic finish that turns into an acidic, long aftertaste, some metal, some weak, weak yeasty funkiness, and thats pretty much that. Nice enough.
