4/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Pours up a very dark cherry color with hints of purple. Head is very dense and large, fuchsia colored, and deposits lots of lace on its way down.

S: Aroma is very rich and fruity, though not as syrupy as the kriek or framboise. I've never really had a black currant on its own--I've had it in teas and various other capacities--so I'm not sure how a simple black currant would taste or smell. The best way to describe the aroma is somewhat of a fusion of black cherry, grape, and raspberry. There's also some musty earthiness and a bit of funk from the lambic in there, as well. Fruit is the main show, though.

T&M: The flavor profile is quite lovely. It's bursting with fruitiness and tartness, though it's not super-sweet or syrupy. I feel like Lindemans uses fruit syrups or extracts, not whole fruit, but the flavor still works decently. Fruity flavors are best described as berry-like (blueberry, blackberry, raspberry) with hints of grape-like notes and a slightly bitter/tannic edge. Sour/funky lambic flavors are in the background, though not prominent. Body is medium to full with an aggressive and spritzy carbonation--on par for the style.

D: For a fruit lambic, it's actually decently drinkable, which means I can get through the 12 oz bottle without having to share. A solid fruit lambic, for sure.

4.38/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Pours a dark purple with a pink head that leaves minimal lacing.

Smell is of dark berries, loads of them. Cannot get away from it its so very sweet and inviting.

Taste is the same, currants dominate, with a pleasant funk backing it up to give it a full on chick beer, but also, a well blended sour note.

Feel is perky, with a nice quaf and sour balance.

Overall this is one good lambic, and I have to let everyone know, this is not your typical sour ale, it is very sweet and palatable by newcomers standards.
