I really liked it, been seeking this style for awhile also. Yeasty, notes of cherry and strawberry... Sweet and sugary, also like a hef, and a bit sour as well though it should not make anybody pucker.

In some ways this is simple -- it's a lambic sweetened with candy sugar -- but in other ways it's quite unusual. The dry, earthy funk from the lambic is definitely there, but it's evened out by the sweetness from the syrup. It's almost like a fruited lambic, but taking some shortcuts by just adding sugar.

355ml bottle. Pours with a clear amber colo a a small white head. Nose is very fuity, lots of ripe berries and grapes, some decaying and some old balsamico vinegar aromas. Taste is well balanced sweet-sour flavor with a nice dry finish.

355mL bottle at World of Beer (Charlottesville, VA). Aromas of lemon, grass, apple cider. Clear dark amber with a mostly lasting off-white head. Sweet, tastes like Brisk iced tea but fermented, artificial lemon flavor and all. Medium bodied.

fernockibeer (218) - Wroclaw, POLAND - OCT 17, 2017
Butelka do 26.09.2018. Wygląd - bursztynowy kolor, całkowicie klarowne, z małą obrączką. Aromat - jest trochę funky notes, stajni, sianka, lekko piwnicznych nut. Smak - mocno słodkie, z lekko-średnim kwaskowatym finiszem, nawet powiedziałbym lekko cierpkim, trochę winogron i stajni, goryczka jest, dość konkretna, taniczna, lekko ściągająca, ciało półpełne, nasycenie średnie, w stronę niskiego. Ta ściągająca goryczka nie do końca przyjemna.

Butelka 0,25. Barwa bursztynowa, piana nietrwała, drobno i średniopęcherzykowa. Aromat funky (końska derka, mokre siano), ale mało intensywny; lekko słodko-kwaśny. W smaku kwaśne z przyjemną, słodką kontrą. Wysycenie dość wysokie. Najlepszy z tej Lindemansowej serii, ale wciąż mało w nim lambika.

Bottled. Finally got to try this style! Bought the bottle exclusively to try this style. Pours an amber copper color, white head. Aroma is kinda weird. Kinda like chlorine smell while in the locker room of a public pool. Tart, grass, hay, funky, sugary syrup. Bizarre. But not unpleasant. Flavor is syrupy sweet, tart, lemon, acidic. Fairly sweet and tart. Quite nice actually. Kinda sweet apple juice thing going on. I'd have this again.
