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 lindman’s beers. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2007
Bottle. Dark purple beer with a light head. The aroma is dulled berry fruits and the flavour is nicely sweet, fruity and quite tart. Overall a nice drink. Dedollewaitor (16178) - Odense, DENMARK - APR 8, 2007
Dark amber with red hew. Fruity blackcurrant all over this. Alcohol is not noticeable at all. Very sweet & a bit synthetic but def. drinkable! Marko (5753) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 7, 2007
Bottle from a shop here in Splitcgarvieuk (24793) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 2, 2007
The last Lindemans available here in Croatia. Label says 3.5%, but the importer’s sticker says 4%. Odd. Anyway, I don’t 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. It’s 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 that’s pretty much that. Nice enough.
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2016 Bottle 3.5% , this is red in colour, a easy drink that sweet fruit and uncomplex
Tap at six degrees sept 2016...deep red.. Thin pink lacing sweet fruit front.. Juicy blackcurrant... Soft sweet fruit.. Long tart blackberries
Boutip (6397) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 22, 2007
Bottle: Poured a deep dark blue color lambic with a big foamy purple head with good retention. Aroma of cassis syrup is dominating and gets pretty close to being gross but stays within a reasonable limit. Taste is dominated by the cassis with some weak notes of sourness and tart. The taste is also very sweet which I usually would mind but I thought it provide a refreshing edge to this beer. Overall, without being anything close to traditional lambic I thought this was a refreshing option that I wouldn’t mind having again. Delirium (669) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2007
Bottle. Pours ruby-red with a foamy pink head. Aroma and flavor are both sweetish-sour blackcurrant. Reminiscent of similarly flavored carbonated fruit drinks, but with smoother carbonation and a hint of the yeast. Pretty good, although really more for when you want a blackcurrant beverage than for when you want a beer. Tranquillity (2430) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2007
Bottle. Very good stuff. Looks and pours like red wine, except for the pink foam that stays for the whole drinking time. Tastes like Lindemans Kriek on tap, which is great. The aroma is different berries, but better than many krieks because the beer can be felt. The taste is a bit sour, but with a fantastic palate. No words can describe, just try it.

Bottle. 3.5 ABV. Creamy red good mostly deminishing head.Dark red colour. Powerfull black currant aroma. Nice sweet/bitter flavor. Average finish. Syruply palate. Nice lambic. travita (5006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2007
Very much like sparkling grape juice. Not much like most beers. In the style of lambics it seems to be too sweet and the overally look is not appealing.
