Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 13, 2005
Deep red with a pink head a tart musty aroma of black currants. Flavor carries through with enough acidity to balance. Nice earthy feel to it. Not too sweet-some oak qualities appear at the end. Tingly, acidic finish.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2005
Overly sweetened, cloying so, although the extremely lively carbonation helps cut that defect. Sweet/tart/sour in flavor but all too weird for me. Not at all refreshing.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 31, 2005
(ABV 3.5%) Dark red and somehow coppery color, little pink head. Strong blackcurrant aroma. Blackcurrant also strong in flavor, lasts with sourness in aftertaste. Mild carbonation.

kepano (265) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 29, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 25, 2006 (Bottle 37,5cl) Poured a very deep purple with a thin creamy bright pink head that leaves surprisingly nice lacing. The nose is very fruity with lots of blackcurrant, some musty red wine, apples and a bit of woodiness presumably from the oak aging. The mouthfeel is very syrupy with light carbonation. Much like the other Lindemans lambics, the fruity sweetness is very powerful and present in the flavor. I really like sweets and blackcurrants so it really appeals to me but I can see why others might not be too fond of it. Definitely best for desert, I imagine it would go nicely with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Extremely refreshing.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 22, 2005
(Bottle 25 cl) Dark red, close to black actually, with a reddish, dense and rather creamy head. Rather acidic both from the lambic and the black currant although lots of sugar is added. But very fresh indeed. 161199

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 8, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2006 Huge aroma of currants. Very sprtitzy to the nose. Pale purple in color. Big fluffy purple tinted head. Sweet in the initial taste, but a bit vinegary in the middle. Dry finish. My bottile is old I can tell as it has the old style label that shows the currants on the label with a purple background. So that may be why. But it still isnt all that bad. Too sweet on the whole for my taste, but still interesting.
