21 Aug 2006 - Lovely rich cherry sweet and some other complexity aroma. Deep dark-red colour, good red-pink retaining head and unbelievable sheet lacing. Big luscious sweet cherry flavour and nice acid balance. Big cherry lingering aftertastes thick, finishes with a tanginess.

nearbeer (5142) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2007
355 ml bottle poured in wide glass. Nice color, strong cherry aroma, fading to floral. Sparkling as promised, and surprisingly refreshing. A hint of wheat if you care to notice. Somewhat like malt duck, as I recall from about 30 years ago, except maybe more fizz, and not as sweet. Nice change of pace, not too sour.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours dark red and has a medium red head. Has a strong smell of sweet cherries and what seems like almonds. The taste is more of a tart cherry flavor. Obviously this type of beer is not for everybody, but if youre looking to try something different, this is a nice change of pace.

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2007 I absolutely love fruit lambics, so that said lets rate this baby.. It pours a bright red with a medium pink head The aroma is very much so upfront tart/sweet cherry (again, its a cherry lambic) and maybe some oak aroma. The flavor is sweet/tart cherry as well with some spicy bite to it. The palate is that wonderful champagne feeling, that small bubble light carbonation that dances across your mouth and down your throat and lets you know that you can feel your stomach. The finish is carbonated and sweet.

aubreya (676) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 24, 2007
The color was a deep red. The head was pink, thick, and fizzy. The aroma was a strong cherry smell. It smelled like candy, sweet and tart. The flavor was tart, strong cherry, and sweet. The palate was slightly carbonated. The finish was tart.

Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Pours a ruby color with slight pink head. Aroma is of black cherry, must, lambic funkiness and yeast. Taste is of a cherry jolly rancher with a slight tartness that imparts a mouth puckering on its consumer. This would be a good lambic if the sweetness was more subdued and that lambic funk was more prevalent. I can definitely see how thr artificial flavoring ruins the experience.

Christian (13250) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 20, 2007
Hazy red with a lasting pink head. Strong cherry aroma, a bit on the candy side. Flavour has some acid, and a nice tart finish. Must be one of the best easy-to-drink krieks.

] Too easy to rip on Lindemans. You wont find any ripping here. Yes its sweet and fruity. So be it. Looking past that it still has some tartness and complexity. Its there, but you have to look for it. So pour a second glass... Clear ruby red, not as purply as the framboise. A touch of pink in the sparkly carbonated head. Sweet fizzy beer. And sweet pie cherry. Thats what they are shooting for - thats what you get. It is that touch of tartness in the aftertaste that tells me that this is a good beer. Very few fruity beers are better than Lindemans. It isnt what lambics are all about, but thats OK by me - I still like it. And if I bring a bottle home for the wife, well...
