Sampled from Growler courtesy of egajdzis. Poured a deep and cloudy ruby red with a very small sized reddish/pink head. Aromas of berries (I was getting strawberries, raspberries and cranberries) and some funkiness. Tastes of the same with a nice puckering, tart finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This one is great. It pours deep magenta with minimal pinkish head. Solid aroma of cherry, currants, some funky notes, and some malt. The flavor is on the tart side, providing a huge currant and cherry flavor with some lambicy funky hints at mid-palate. Solid complexity and very well balanced.

On tap at the brewpub, July 2006. Darker pink colour. Really fine, funky aroma. Tart and sharp, with plenty of juicy fruit showing. One of the most authentic-tasting US fruit lambics I’ve tried. Very nicely done.

Hand-bottled sample courtesy of JHop: Pours a murky dark ruby with a lightly-lacing pinkish head. Complex, mildly funky, bretty aroma aroma has s good black currant presence. Body is a little thin, but has a fairly good balance between malty sweetness and tart fruitiness. An enjoyable and unique beer.

Growler. Pours gold with an off white head. Smells of currants, some funk, lots of tartness, some oaky hints. Tastes funky and tarte with some residual sugary hints and some currants show up as this warms. Lots of oakiness on the finish. Nice!

Poured a hazy, ruby red color with a pinkish white head that left spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of light pretty, musty barnyard funk, dark berries, and candied fruits. Taste of sweet dark berries, with the skins, giving it a lingering tartness.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy maroon/purple with a smaller pink creamy head that left slight lacing. Aroma of tart black currant, various berries, Lambic yeast and musty. Flavors of the same...not quite up to par with the flavor but still very solid. BBW has been putting together some nice Lambics.
