my sour exposure has been:

some sour brown ale my buddy ordered while at a bar in madison. Didn't care for it, tasted like bile.
New Glarus Enigma, a sour brown which again had too much more going on than just "sour". Better than the above, but still a little too out there for me.

then i had a homebrewed sour cherry ale at a homebrew club meeting. it was fantastic.

so the next time i was at the liquor store I grabbed a bottle of Rose de Gambrinus from Cantillon, thinking that I better start off with a fruit lambic. It sat in my fridge for a month because i was afraid to open it. Then a good friend of mine who is into interesting beer and sort of into sours came over, and we split it.

What an excellent beer! Sour to the bone, but a refreshing sour, like sour candy. i'll have to pick up their kriek, fou foune (apricot) and maybe try their straight gueze. I think i'm a sour convert.

Got a Geuze Boon chilling in my fridge now. You can fill my casket up with the stuff when I'm dead.

ok, so i tried Lindemans Framboise the other day, it was on tap at a local bar...

not sour at all. i mean, it was drinkable, raspberry, very sweet. but i didn't really get it.

i would much rather drink mike's hard cranberry lemonade than that. i have a split of Cantillon kriek in my basement, i'll have to open that soon.

The Lindemans fruit lambics are fine, but definitely different than most producers. As you said; more sweet and less acidic/sour. I like them, but they're not the first thing I think of when I think "framboise" or "kriek".

yeah, i wasn't trying to really talk down on them, they were fine, drinkable, but i'd rather have a mike's or a cocktail.
