Lindemans: Tea Beer (Belgium: Lambic: 3.5% ABV)

Visual: Mildly carbonated hazy blond gold.

Nose: Lemon, iced tea , sour acidity and crushed leaves.

Body: Sweet syrup, iced tea and red bull. Lemon sherbet and sorbet.

Finish: Lemon, tea, strawberry and leaves.

Conclusion: Very odd, someone’s mixed a lambic and an iced tea in a beer, or so it seems at least. On opening the bottle you can’t help but notice the iced tea character which just gushes out, and it wears it well.

Another quirky and interesting beer out of Belgium – part of the reason why I hold the country to be the best for beer in the world, and I don’t think I will ever get bored of trying their newest oddity. This particular beer won’t set the world alight, but it does help you rethink what can actually be done with beer, and is another good beer for the person who claims that there will never be a beer they like.

We should welcome these innovations and hope that more brewers produce such eccentric joys.
