look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Deep purple color with fluffy pink head.
Smell: Aroma is very similar to sparkling grape juice.
Taste: Very much like a red wine, but I'm probably mistaking the currant flavors for grape flavors. If there was yeast in red wine, it would probably taste like this. I dub this yeast-wine. It's also sweet, but not too sweet. Tart, but not too tart.
Mouthfeel: Tingly carbonation accompanies a medium body.
Drinkability: Not too sweet to have a couple, but this is really is best suited as a dessert beverage.
Notes: This is my favorite of the Lindemans fruit lambics. Not nearly as sweet as the peche Lindemans; not quite as tart as the kriek. The cassis somehow is the most wine-like, but also the most lambic qualities of the three Lindemans I've tried. It is the most yeasty of the three and has the best balance between sweetness, tartness, and mild funkiness. In a word, it's delicious!
