look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a bright ruby red color. Head is dark pink and billowy and takes several minutes to dissipate.
Smell: Tart cherries through and through.
Taste: Cherries, sweet and tart. Maybe slightly more tart than sweet, but not by much. Both elements are largely present. This is almost like drinking cherry juice with yeast in it. Quite one dimensional. No alcohol taste whatsoever.
Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation plus the tartness give it a pleasant little sting.
Drinkability: So sweet and tart that it's best suited as a dessert beer shared among friends.
Notes: Another nice fruit lambic offering from Lindemans. Not nearly as sweet as Lindeman's peche, and not as wine-like or lambic-like as their cassis. It's not a lot like a traditional lambic, and it doesn't taste much like beer. But it's a delicious fruit-flavored beverage, nonetheless. I will undoubtedly drink this again as a special treat!
