Very nice, although the alcohol percentage was different. The colour was interesting, very sweet but not tiring. I liked it very much. RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 15, 2006
From notes, 01-12-06
Pours a vary dark hazy purple with a thick two finger pink head that slowly recedes to a rocky cap, that leaves behind tons of lacing. Itís kind of strange to see a purple head on my beer.
Smell; very sweet with a very strong black currant smell. Thereís also a bit of a sour smeel in the background.
Taste; very sweet and fruity to start, followed by a slightly puckering sourness. It was a little hard to pick out at first because of how sweet this beer is, but thereís a bit of a peppery spiciness in the finish, that makes this slightly more enjoyable. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. This is so sweet that I had a really hard time finishing it. JoshuaB (476) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Dark purple, slightly red, some reddish head. Nose is berries, tannin, yeast, and more berries. Very syrupy, rather simple, but not bad to drink. Granted I would never buy this stuff, but I wont turn it down either. Begins rather sour, lots of cassis peel, finishes a bit sweet. Not much else to say really, but not a lambic lovers lambic, more like a vaginas kind of lambic. ATOmemphis (200) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - JAN 12, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2006 From a bottle - Capped and corked. Poured deep reddish, pink frothy head that slowly dissolved. Smells like Juicy-Juice. Tastes of grape and cranberry are all over the place. Pretty good, though a little tart. I enjoyed other Lindemans a little more. mabjork (692) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2006
Bottled. Dark read with a rich white head. The aroma consists of blackcurrant and is sweet. The flavour has a sweet taste of blackcurrant and has an aftertaste with a "sting".

A Mes rate:
37.5cl bottle from somewhere in Bruges. Smells good, tastes ok, looks awesome. Itís just too sweet really. All blackcurrant syrup. Like Ribena beer. alaskanwarren (286) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2005
Reddish purple, with a pinkish lavender head that lingers. Aroma is tart and very fruity. The taste is exactly the same. Very crisp and feels fresh. I really like lambics like this. It just sits right in my mouth and my tummy. This is probably my favorite from Lindemans. ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - DEC 29, 2005
Not a complex aroma. Mainly just the aroma of what I assume to be currant...Iíve never smelled them before. I must say that I would imagine the actual fruit to smell better as this has a somewhat rotten(?) unpleasantness to it. The flavor mirrors the aroma except that it is more tolerable. Still not good, though. I get a sense of earthiness/woodsiness in there toward the end. Extremely sweet. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2005
This is cold, i freezered it for 45 mins and its probably just about right going by what the kriek was hot, which makes me think the lreik needs re-rating. Aroma is nutty, blackcurrent, a bit raw and not much character. Taste is alot different, sourness blends with the current sweetness, to make a very easy and very flavoursome mix of fruit lambic goodness. This is my first blackcurrent lambic and i wonder why theres not more? frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - DEC 26, 2005
Pours a hazed, melony-purple with a quick, orchid head that fades fast to halo. Currant dominates aroma within a rather cough-syrupy persona. A sourness strikes me simply, like lemons. Upon tasting, my wife made a humorous yet accurate observation: "Itís so sweet that itís sour." Thatís exactly the impression it conjures... starting with a syrupy, fruity sweetness but moving instantly to a puckery-astringent, fruity tartness. Itís a giddy flavor assault on your tastebuds, like being tickled to the point of pain by a maniacal clown.
