Well what can I say it s a sweet and sour beer and as such quite interesting to drink. It smacks of apple and grapes with some faint caramel notes and almost tastes more like a cider than a beer.

The appearance is omewhat in line with that and the colour is somewhat reminicent of natural cloudy apple juice.

The smell is somewhat faint but fresh like an apple orchard and as such not bad. Drinkability is OK but the drink gets a bit acidic and sour after a while so...

This brew pours a dark cherry colour with average carbonation that leaves no head and little lacing,the aroma is barnyard funk,mustiness almost mouldy and some berry sweetness hiding in amongst it,the mouthfeel is above average which slides down the palette with a very sweet taste of raspberries,dark grapes and it finishes with an almost champagne like finish but instead of finishing dry it finishes sweet/dry and if you are not a fan of your lambics i would not recommend but since i am ive got no problem finishing this brew just wouldnt drink another straight away.

This one was interesting, Gave it a good poure into a tuplip glass and looked it over. The color was a a shade of brown with a very thin white head on top that faded almost right away. The smell of the beer was actually quite funky, I expected this to be on the tart side once I took a sip. The taste however was not tart at all really. I know that it's a Lindeman's product but even they have some sourness in them. This was surprisingly sweeter than all the others I've had from them. The taste of brown sugar was throughout the beer. There was just a touch of funk in there too. The mouthfeel was decent but nothing too impressive really. Overall this was something that I found to be quite interesting and I'd like to have more of this style one day just to compare.

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

A-clear coppery color with minimal head. Does hold a slight head while drinking though around the glass.

S-has that sour/funk smell I have grown to love but has a slight soapy smell in it too. good just not super good.

T-I cannot beleive this is a Lindeman's. Taste is not nearly as sweet as I was expecting like there other fruity lambics but was still sweet for what it is. I enjoy the sweetness though. Has a sour note on the back of the tongue and some cherryness, but not powerful at all. It also has a bit of the funk. I just brewed a batch of my own beer with Candi Sugar and can really taste it in here too but not too much in my opinion.

M-slightly syrupy which isn't bad for this style.

Overall, I will buy again.
