Pours a deep burgandy with a light purple head. Aroma is cherries with some grape as well. Sour, dark fruits, yeast, and very sweet. Body is full and creamy, but has a nice amount of carbonation as well. Flavor is sweet and sour fruit. Has a tart and dry finish. I enjoyed this one.

mikey (503) - farmington, Utah, USA - FEB 19, 2007
Poured a dark ruby/plum color with a vivid pink head that deflated quickly. The nose was black currant, spruce and mint with a slight damp earthiness. The taste started with tart and vinious currant, followed by fresh pepermint leaf and bready grains. The finish was tart and puckering, yet dry and sweet. Definitly a sipping beer; very different, good and orignal.

beisen (90) - California, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Interesting. Pours deep ruby red, with about an inch of foamy head. The head remained about a quarter inch for the entire session. The flavor was sort of like drinking a beer flavored sweet and sour pomegranate shake. It definitely was more like a cider than a beer. Not bad, but I dont think Id have it again, especially for the price.

doubelknv3 (1088) - Illinois, USA - FEB 4, 2007
Purple Haze colour and aroma had hints of Black Currant. I am not a huge fan of Lambic or other fruity style beers, but I did have higher expectations for this one, which I tasted at my favorite Belgium beer bar in Geneva. The front-end was too sweet and the finish was too sour for me to enjoy...so, I gave it to my wife who has served with me as a long thime CAMRA member and she left this quote in our beer diary, "If its beer you want, if you order this youve taken the wrong turn..."

hayduke (5135) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 3, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 A 750 ml bottle costing $9.45 at the North Coast Coop in Eureka, CA. This was the last of the four Lindemans Lambic and was the most difficult to rate. Poured a beautiful almost purple color with a head of the same color that lasted a long time and left wonderful lacing. Big nose of cherry and a touch of yeast. A feast for the eyes. Thick and rich, with remarkable smoothness. Flavor is very potent and I suppose is currents, but is a little odd to me. . Mouthfeel rich like all the Lamics. A ourch of tartness is there, but generally this is very sweet and almost overwhelmlming in its favors. My least favorite of all the lambics. But still not bad and very interesting to drink.
