A: The beer is cloudy deep purple in color and poured with a small pink head that quickly dissipated into a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface. A light amount of carbonation is visible.
S: There are aromas of currants in the nose along with some notes of sugars and hints of sourness and yeast.
T: Tart flavors of the currants dominate the taste, which also has a mild amount of sweetness. The initial taste is sweet and the finish is tart.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation..
D: The beer is very easy to drink because there is a good balance between the contrasting flavors of sweetness and sourness.

Poured this 750 mL capped and corked, dark green bottle into champagne flutes. No date. The body was turbid and looked like grape juice. The head was very healthy and left a nice amount of lacing, purple/pink tinted.

The smell was earthy and fruity. Both tart and sweet.

The taste reflected the aroma. Very fruity and tart. Black currants shine. There was a good balance of twang and sweetness. Somewhat drying in the finish. Very drinkable.

The mouthfeel was medium to light in body. Effervescent but not too fizzy. I might drink this one again on New Years Eve!

Another interesting lambic from this brewery. This time the black currants really mix well with the beer style. Just the right amount of fruit flavor balanced with the sour lambic base makes this a great choice as an appertif or dessert beer. I was even able to get a friend who has never had this style to enjoy the lambic experience.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Pours a reddish purple color that has some carbonation bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. It has a frothy head that is white tinted with some light purple.

S: It smells really tart and almost a bit sour. The sweet black currant fruit dominate the aroma.

T: The taste is a dead on representation of the aroma. It has that big tart taste with a touch of sour and the sweet fruits dominate.

M: Its body is on the lighter side but is loaded with a high carbonation level. The flavors dance on the palate and finishes very sweet.

O: I haven't had many lambics, but this seems to be a great representation. The hops and malts are nonexistent and allow the sweet black currants to take over nearly every aspect. It wasn't overly sweet or tart, a good balance between the two characteristics.

Deep cranberry in color with an attractive creamy pink head. Not nearly the super dark extracted color of the Framboise. Aromas hint mildly of garden mint and sweet brambly cassis fruit. Some tartness in the mouth, yet still aimed at the international market-though not much as the framboise. However, if this steers a person in the direction, and or, perpares the palate for the likes of Cantillon, this brew has carved its niche. Should be widely appreciated.

Lindemans Cassis

Pours a cherry color, nice soapy head and lace. Aroma is full of sour berry. In the flavor, sweet berry flavor and a sour lambic funk flavor making for a nice sweet/sour combo. Light bodied, mild carbonation and a dryish finish. Solid lambic beer, as is everything from Lindemans.
