Had this last night at The Press in Claremont, split with my girlfriend. She likes lambics quite a bit, so the bottle went down pretty easy.

Appearance: Purple-red hue (very raspberry like, what a surprise) and with sufficient carbonation that laced really nicely into the snifter. Sticky look to it, as I'd expect from a quality lambic.

Smell: Whew, what an aroma of raspberry! Really fills up the room, that's for sure. Almost two levels of raspberry too, as some is slightly less sweet with a hint of under-ripe sourness and the other with that in-season, fresh raspberry smell. Not as syrupy in my opinion as the Peche or Kriek.

Taste: Identical to the smell, but with a hint of yeasty flavors on the back-end that brought you back to the beer-realm, but only slightly. The flavor is all raspberry, but very refreshing and sweet. Not as sweet as the Kriek either, which bordered on too much, but rather more of a flavorful and easy to enjoy situational drink.

Mouthfeel: Full, almost sticky sweetness with little bitterness and a clean, sweet finish.

Drinkability: Lambics are one of those styles that you are really having to grade within the style and not outside. Sure, there is hardly any alcohol here and certainly none that you can taste, but it drinks slow due to the sweetness. Highly recommended for a dessert-style beverage and for a change of pace style brew, and my favorite of the Lindemans lambics I've had so far. Still have to try the Cassis, but I can see myself enjoying this again sometime.
