another chickie lambic, pinkish purple with reddish head; the aroma is fruity with hint of currant. so is the flavor.

From the bottle.

Pours a reddish purple with a flourescent pink head. The aroma is a funky winery-bottling-room with some black currant; the flavor is an overwhelming blast of thick, sweet, sticky black currant (think melted sorbet or maybe even straight-up Torani syrup). The lambic character is in there somewhere, but one practically has to focus to find it beneath all the fruit and sugar.

As fruit juice, it’s passable. As a beer, no.

Kind of a slight stale aroma. Very attractive cloudy burgundy in appearance with a fine bubbly head. Very tart - a slight metallic aftertaste - not really bad - just rather metallic. I liked the livliness of the carbonation. A refreshing drink to sip. This was my first experience with a lambic. Very unbeer-like. Different but good.

Deep berry red. Lose ununiform pink head. Nose is acidic with sugar sweet notes, watermelon, cassic, dust, and mint leaf. tounge is acidic with bitter orange and cassic but the mouth is too sweet. There is a problem of balance of the sweet notes. They appear artifical and do not fit the flavour of the beer.

Dangerous purple red colouration - I took off my good shirt before the first sip. Somewhat metallic cassis aroma. Sweet baseline, light tartness from the berries. Easy drinkable. Sparkly mouthfeel. Doesnt taste bad, but I did expect a bit more lambicness here.

probably my most favorite Lindemans. Color is amazing almost purple. Fuity, a little too sweet to drink too many. Great after a meal or anywhere you’d think of drinking a dessert wine.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Dry and tart and yet also very sweet. Fruity, but not overwhelming. Very rich red color and a good aroma of currants.

3.4
papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Purple color with a small fading pinkish head. Aroma is fruity and burgandy like (black currant). Flavor starts fruity sweet (blackberry) followed by a sharp tartness finishing quite acidic, long and dry. Medium bodied and smooth with lively carbonation.

xjaja (14) - FINLAND - MAR 19, 2006
Selvästi parempi kuin Lindemannin Kriek. Oluen ja sitä kautta hiivan maku erottuu paremmin mausta. Olut on silti hyvin makea. Makeampi kuin moni muu Lambic.

smcd (366) - USA - MAR 12, 2006
A currant soda-pop with slight hints of sourness in the background. Thoroughly drinkable, but ultimately unremarkable. Acidic and fruity (currant, how surprising!) notes on the aroma. Ruby, purplish color, mostly clear. A decent flavor, but a little thin and ultimately bitter. Medium-thin bodied and spritzy.
