3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... RBSG 2014... Pours rusty-red with a mid-sized, fluffy, off-white head. Great retention. The bouquet furnishes a shit-ton of fruity, earthy, tannic currants. Medium to full-bodied with soft carbonation. As goes the nose, the flavor goes - provides loads of tart, earthy, tannicly bitter currants. Tangy Full-bodied, raspy, finish.

2014-06-28, Bottle at CapFlu’s Blomster Bash, 7-4-5-2-11=29
Cloudy red color with compact head. Nice cassis aroma. Feety sour flavor, trainwreck.

Hazy dark ruby color with large pink head. The cassis aroma is deep and very nice, with a lemony edge. The mouthfeel is dryish, the cassis flavor is moderate, the acidity low; there is an impression of herbs (sage).
Overall, the aroma is intense but the flavor is bland.

Offering shared at RateBeer Grand Tasting 2014 (St. Louis, MO). Pours a deep crimson berry hue, a frothy pinkish head dies to a fluffy ring, sticks around and laces well. Deeper glow, darker gentle hazy middle. Aromas are blackberry, currant and lactic acidity. Touches of oak, gentle cobwebs and grass. Some bready maltsn potent sour dark and blackberry like fruit, a bit fuzzy. Initial is medium bodied, richer blackberry and currant, fruity and sour elements mix well. Touches of tannic berryskin, touches of funk and prickly tartness. Backend is a bit fruity, darker with blackberry, a bit seedy and gentle sweetness. Sourness is quite appropriate, on point with tasty play between sour and funk, gentle sweetness. Tasty.
