3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle thanks to jleblanc, much appreciated. For some reason I expected the color to be dark but it was a hazy orange-ish color with a super foamy head. The smell was weird, grains and such. The flavor was also weird, not tart and yet not sweet. Berries and stuff but also grains like the aroma.

Bottle@Home. Typical aroma, do I detect Brett? Well it’s smells like it. Tasting it is a complete different world. Sweet, full, fruity but luckily not too much Cassis, well hopped. Nice balance and out of the ordinary fruit beer. Good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
2006 vintage 750ml bottle. effervescent sparkling gold, slightly cloudy. naturally carbonated, billowy tall head. slightly oxidized nose of black currant and grape jolly rancher, moderately sweet with heavy floral yeast present. floral spices up front turns more to semi-sweet grape and green apple jolly rancher (green apple?). delicate and soft carbonation joins with a dry and pillowy malt texture, finishing with a quiet note of apple spice and cassis. works really well when chilled but develops some flavors (mostly yeast) that don’t work so well when warmer. treat it like white wine, keep chilled.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4th July 2008. A frothy and crisp beer. The blackcurrant is quite mild. Best when very cold. A little watery which detracts.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ Cole’s Italian Beer Tasting. Cloudy ruby brown body, thin head. Nose is appley, grapes, apple cider sludge and a small amount of nutmeg. Flavor is apples, some rich candied malt and a nice crispness provided by the carbonation. Reduced apple cider & a bit more sharpness in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours slightly hazy amber with a bubbly 3-finger beige head. Mild black current aroma with a hint of herb. Suggests a belgian ale variant. Medium body with very frothy carbonation. Flavor starts very black current, then heads a bit towards citrus, then herb or wood, returning back towards bc. Interesting stuff. Not all that sweet, in fact hardly at all, finishing a bit acid/citric. Towards the end of the bottle I’m really liking it.
