Looks awesome, with a purply head I’ve never seen before. High carbonation. Tart, so very tart, and complex like a fine wine. This is just superb, I can just imagine the lambic sitting there with the blackcurrants in the secondary fermentation slowly creating the flavours blessing my mouth. I’d heard that Lindemans can be too sweet but I didn’t find that at all in this case. A truly gourmet drink.

Aroma is pure Ribena blackcurrant with slight yeasty note. The initial taste is quite sweet but very drinkable with a slight oaky character and a touch of tartness. I’m not a huge Lambic follower but this was a very pleasant drink

Butelka do 27.02.2019. Wygląd - głęboki rubin, klarowne, z małą, utrzymującą się różową pianą. Aromat - bardzo wyraźna porzeczka, może trochę też borówki i jagody, tło szampańsko-winne, jest też pewna dzikość. Smak - bardzo wytrawne, dość mocno, kwaśne, ciemne owoce z dominującą porzeczką, wyraźnie winne, z nutami słodkimi w aftertaste’ście. Nasycenie średnie w stronę wysokiego. Goryczki brak. Fajny, rześki lambik.

Bottle from Smak Piwa. Beer served in Tulip Glass. Aroma is dry and sublime. Black currant along with red currants and blueberry notes. Taste is like currant kompot, smooth and dry with a sour twist. Great balance between sweetness and sourness. I like to give them a few months in the basement, fresh Lindemans could be too much sugary.

Poured from 25cl bottle (labelled P: 2016/06/20; E: 2018/06/20). Dark purple-ish red with pink-ish head. Sweet black currant with mild wood and hint of berry. Quite sweet, not too acidic. Good, not amazing.

Black current like hanging out at an English trade show. Hazy pink pour. Tangy sweet finish. Easy drinking. Bottle.

Zilverenmaan (190) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 3, 2017
Aroma: definately some sourness and lambic tartness, loads of cassis dominating though. Taste lots af cassis, some sourness but way, way too sweet which is a shame because I’ve got the impression it’s killing a good beer.

Barwa rubinowa, metna, piana rozowa wysoka, szybko opadajaca, osadza sie na sciankach, zapach porzeczkowy, kwasny, w smaku porzeczka, kwas, jest dobre.
