Finally got me a bottle of Lindemans. Big 750 mL green bottle, corked and capped (?), and topped with foil. It pours a dark cherry red with notes of purple and pink, and it's topped with a beautiful strawberry frosting color head that rises to an inch and a half and sticks everywhere, and not just on the first glass. Damn that's a pretty beer. It smells sweet with berries (currant, blackberry), and a slight musty/farmy aroma. The last pour (with all the dregs) smells of currant preserves. The taste follows suit with a good tart/bitter quality and additional notes of dark cherries and oak. Delicious. The body is both medium and syrupy, both smooth and dry. The carbonation at the beginning is nice, but the beer is better as it warms. As far as drinkability - I was taking sips for the whole 2 hours it took to drink, and I'm surprised it even lasted that long - good thing I was trying to savor it. I could have drunk two of these in a row easily, especially because of the low ABV, however, the high price keeps me from that. Ah well.... now to try their other lambics.
