Dark cotton-candy pour with a razor thin white wad that leaves immediately. Aroma of sour plum/cherry skin, completely opposite the flavor. As with most Lindemans, this is likely a sugary example of the style. Caramel, cane sugar, and honey dominate. Dont get much else, unfortunately. Quite syrupy.

amber pour with thin white head. some sour funk in the aroma. flavour was dominated by the sweetness, Belgium candy I assume. some sour funk hidden behind the candy. way way to sweet for me, cloying, couldnt even finish half the bottle. did not like

The pour is amber with a lot of floaters, small lacing head. The aroma is fruity, wine like with cherry and a hint of funk. The flavor is similar, wine like with a bit of that funk in the back ground. Good one.

still not a big fan of the style, but this is a decent beer i guess. Pours a clear watery red with a tiny white head. Sweeter than I expected, still has that barn yard funk that Im not a big fan of. I like this better than a gueze but will not be making a major effort to try this style again.

355ml bottle, corked and capped. Pours a deep, dark amber color with an off white head. Aroma is sour, yeasty, tart cherry. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is a nice balance of sweet and sour, A little sour cherry, sugar, fruity. Interesting.

Bottle. Pours a brown sugar brown with a one inch head. Smells strongly of sour yeasts. Taste is sweet. Medium carbonation and light body. Tastes a lot like Duchesse De Bourgenne without the malt vinegar intensity.

The pour is a bright yellowish - orange with a finger of the purest white head Ive ever seen on a beer. The head subsides to a thin cap slowly. The nose is sweet and mildly sour with a candied sugar note and light malts. Thorough sweetness with mild sourness and fruity finish. Medium bodied with a oil like moutyhfeel. Overall, a nice sour beer, but a bit too sweet perhaps.

My bottle (250ml) shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a deep orange-amber with a small diminishing bubbly off-white head. Nice aroma, quite fruity and a bit sour along with some sugary sweetness. Flavour is surprisingly fruity and a bit sour along with a slightly tart finish -- lovely really. Average bodied. I really enjoyed this, quite nice on a warm Summer day.
