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.

Pours purple like grape juice with a small head and no lacing. Nose is...some grape but also a moldy yeast stink (not a good funk). Taste is grape soda with more acidity. Overall, the worst of all the Lindemans flavors due to the nose mostly.

Poured a rich dark purple brown into a chalice from a bottle. Nice initial head and good lacing. Strong sour berry smell, pleasant. The taste is very strong of sweet berries with some lemon pucker. Good carbonation. I need to be in the mood for a lambic, but I will definitely get this one again when the time comes.

this is one of the better ones in this series. it ages really well for one, but it also has such an authentic black currant flavor and its really vibrant, about as true as i have seen this fruit come through in any beer. its deep purple, like a melted crayon, intense like uncut blueberry juice, with a fizzy violet head on it. gnarly color and depth. it smells and tastes nice, only a little pucker here, like the others, this is a much sweeter lambic type, more focused on fruit than yeast, but if thats the goal, the beer is a tremendous success. a little tangy from the skins, a little sweet from the flesh, but a great expression of the ripe black currant. mild acidity here helps cut the sugar, and age has worked it down a little as well. not quite dry, but almost gritty on the tongue, there is a ton of fruit here. decent carbonation on it, and eve with the sugar, its pretty drinkable as they go, juicy and appealing, very distinct. i dont know if they do these beers in wood or not. if they do, its impression left is slight. the fruit in this one is powerful enough to cover up any such nuance. overall though this is cool beer, definitely a good starting point for the style for those unsure if they like it. fantastic use of this particular fruit, and probably my favorite in this series from lindemans.

Enjoyed in a tulip glass. Thanks, Alan.

A: A rich dark blackberry/purple. Pinkish tones around the half finger head.

S: Blackberries, sweet/tart.

T: Pucker up. This one brings on the blackberries with a terrific sweet/tartness that goes on for days. Citrus in the mix, too.

M: Low to medium with medium, dry carbonation.

O: Just a shade under Framboise. A nice berry bite with tartness for days.
