Lindemans Kriek

$7.99 from Showcase Beverage, Carrollton, GA, USA. 750 mL bottle, capped, corked and foiled.
Well, it is what it is and this always confuses the Lambic landscape. Quite how one goes from a beer (or beers) that Lindemans puts out over to a typical Cantillon and call them both Lambics is always a bit of a mystery, but there you are.
Dark magenta pour with a pink head and some good carbonation.
Aroma and tastes are all black cherries, and a nice, non-artificial one at that. Obviously this is crushingly sweet, and to be honest I really like it – many will hate it. A little tart i the finish which gives it the genuine cherry fruit note.
Very smooth.
There really isn’t much more to be said about this other than it is just about the perfect girly, brunchy, deserty non-serious beer. The drinkability is off the charts AS LONG AS you are not offended by the sweetness.
