Pours a surprisingly dark red, with a pink head with excellent retention and production.

Quite tart with a little rustic funk on the nose; not particularly sweet or juicy.

Flavor leans toward sweet raspberries; I'm not hugely familiar with black currants or elderberries. This is definitely raspberry-ish, although not quite as sour. Typical Lindemans sweetness on the palate, sugary and slightly syrupy. A very pleasant level of sour and tartness; virtually no funky wildness.

A little thicker feel than I expected; it clings to your palate for quite a while with a long, sticky finish.

Another solid, very tasty brew by Lindemans, but lacking in depth and complexity as typical of their entry offerings. Certainly nothing I would turn down.

From the bottle, it pours a reddish purple with a pink head. Some lacing as you drink it. Scent is fruity. Taste is slighlty sour with some acidity. Yum!

Red up to the light, small head that does linger. Lots of raspberry-like foam.that lingers a while, and leaves a nice lacing. The aroma is a bit of white vinegar, and red wine, and overall, very fruity. The flavor, again, very red wine-like, fruity. Not overly bitter, nor, overly sweet. Balanced. Carbonation is full, feel is light and dry.

Decanted into a stemmed wine glass. Purple brown hazy color, almost opaque, with a thick, foamy pink rose head. Sweet, but slightly sour nose with aromas of currant and fresh muffins. Clearly a currant flavor with a slightly sour yet pleasant finish. Reminds me of sucking on a lollipop, frankly. Very light bodied. The Framboise was a big hit around the house; this is a close second.

Pours a dull purple if that is even a thing. Plenty of carbonation but traditional notions of head, retention and lacing are somewhat out of place in a beer with spontaneous fermentation and sugar additions it seems. Aroma leans towards dark cranberry, brown malt, wheat and dark cherry/grape.

Taste is once again sweet, but not as sweet as some of the Lindeman's offerings. This one comes close to balance between the mild earthy sour notes and the slight tartness.

Ultimately this is still a fail compared to the Cuvee Rene series that they have going. Still a below average lambic

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. After dinner. 25cl. Pleasant, the fruit doesnt feel artificial nor excessive and the sourness is just the adequate. However, in the long it ends up tiring a bit

Pours an extremely deep red, nearly opaque. Tinge of brown. Thick, fluffy head has a light purple hue. Lace sticking all over.

Nose is funky yeast and sour, with a helping of grape juice. Funky yeast follows through into the taste's forefront, followed quickly by the currant tartness. Blackberry, grapeskins and berry jam. Finishes dry with some sugary sweetness.

A decent brew. Will have to explore this style further.

750 ml bottle. Pours dark red with tall, long-lasting, foamy white head and nice lacing. Nose is of funky yeast, black current and sour wine. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is pleasantly sour, funky, tart with black current. Finish is long and sour. Very tasty brew.
