Poured this into a goblet, pours a rich, dark violet color with lavender tinged foam.

Smell is obviously blackberrys, raspberries, a little cranberry type tartness. Smells like candy.

Taste is just a bit sour and a ton of sweet. Dry blackberries all over. Cassis all the way.

Mouthfeel is champagne like with a nice dry finish, big on berries so it sticks in your mouth for a while.

For a Lambic, these guys never seem to let me down. Love their Gueze, and love this one now too.

3.31/5  rDev -13.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Bottle poured into a Lindemans 200th Anniversary wine glass. Cloudy, darker fuschia color, topped with a full two fingers of pinkish-lavender head, which receded mostly but never completely disappeared, leaving random specks of lacing on the glass. In the nose, berries and more berries, somewhat vinous, with a little musty funk. Not bad. A little bit of puckering tartness up front in the taste, giving way to a wave of sweetness, currants and grapes, candy, jam, Jolly Ranchers, Juicy Juice...overload, simply too sweet. A subtle grassy finish. Let's just call this a fruit beer, not a lambic. Medium body, mouthfeel was syrupy with sweetness, but still had a tart twinge that kept the drinkability decent. Overall, I'd say maybe it's a good dessert beer, but not something I'd purposely buy again. I really just wanted something from Lindemans I hadn't tried yet to christen my glasswale.

This review is based on comparative lambic beers. This is a really good cassis (black currant) beer. It is less tart than a kriek and a little more sweet. If you enjoy a rouge or sour but one with less bite then you will enjoy this one. I am still comparing the Lindemanns and Timmermanns but right now they are comparable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a rich ruby amber, with minuscule head and minimal lace.

Aroma is tart berries, both sour and quite appealing.

Taste is up-front tart berries again, with plenty of sourness. Really quite tasty and, after so many hoppy beers, this rich, complex, and delicious beer proved a welcome change from the norm. I'd drink this again, easily.

I don't drink many lambics due to the fact that I'm not a true fan, however, I have a friend who is determined to change my mind. Thank you Tim.

Into a stange.

A: purple/pink colored body that starts off with a finger's worth of a foamy white head; lacing is sporadic and clingy all around

S: starts off with some raspberry, and as she warms, there's a light blueberry combining to mainly make it semi-sweet but yet carries a somewhat tart/sour connotation to it

T: raspberry and blueberry combination of tart to sweet balance-ness, gets kinda juicy (must be authentic); sweet sticky aftertaste; watery juicy finish. Sidenote: my wife tasted and really liked it.

M: light to medium sort of body with a somewhat softer carbonation to it, and somewhat sessionable.

O: huh, well how about that, a lambic I could drink again. Gee, I guess I have a lot to learn about this style. It didn't come across as too vinous, overly tart or too sour. Interesting. I think I just might have this again after all.
