Rasmus40 (17832) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 19, 2012
Clear reddish brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is sweet and unsurprisingly dominated by black currant very much like some of the flavored vodka I used to drink as a youth. Flavor is quite sweet. Sweet finish. 190412

Koelschtrinker (17738) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 25, 2011
Wässriger Antrunk mit dezenten Fruchtnoten, ähnlich einer Fruchtschorle mit geringem Fruchtanteil. Im Mittelteil kommt die Fruchtigkeit deutlich hervor, überraschenderweise ist dieses Mischgetränk nur wenig süß und daher angenehm zu trinken. Es ist um so überraschender, dass trotz der Milde der Fruchtigkeit und der geringen Süße trotzdem kaum Bieraromen erkennbar sind. Wenig herb im Abgang, erneut Frucht, weniger als im Mittelteil. Erfrischend und untypisch. 9/8/11/7/11/7

Rötlichbraunes Getränk mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr süß nach dunkles Beeren. Geschmack sehr süß nach schwarzen Johannisbeeren, kein Bier.

yngwie (16530) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. A dark red beer, clear, and topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is dominated by black currant, not much room left for anything else. The same goes for the flavor, but at least some beery flavors are coming through. Medium body, dry, and quite pleasant on the carbonation. Overall, rather horrific, but then I don’t like black currant very good. 110819
