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.

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.
