UPDATED: MAY 6, 2006 33 cl bottle, bbe 2007. Cloudy, deep dark red with a light brown hue. Little carbonation, weak dirty white head. Cherry-like aroma, light perfumed, with herbal minty notes. Sweetish taste with mild fruit presence; light tart. Dry and bitterish finish, associating more to a residual berry taste than hops. Light body. Misses some substance, but tastes refreshing and, I believe, does contain real fruit.

Poured a reddish brown color with a medium sized, light pink head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet currants, berries, grains, and yeast. Taste of sweet berries and just a touch of acidity. Not foul, but it reminded me of fruit juice, it could use more of everything.

It’s reminiscent of a lambic but its dry and sweet blueberry taste without the typical sour or tartness punch you come to expect from a lambic. I think that is what differentiates it from other Belgian fruit beers.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2005
Hazy ruby pour with creamy, light pink head. Aroma of cherries and currants. Tastes fruity, with some malt, but lacking in balance and complexity.

ericnixon (743) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Ruby color with a very dry nose that reminded me of champagne. Fizzy mouthfeel with an evern drier mouthfeel and a distinct lack of taste. It’s all about the dry with this one...and not much else.

KariCupcake (214) - Lenox, Massachusetts, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Sort of a pinkish peach color. It reminds me of a tart blueberry soda...if there was such a thing. Pretty ok!

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 29, 2005
Good-looking murky pinkish body. Fusel, riesling-like cattiness, old grains and soda-pop nose. Stone or rocks reminiscent attempt at hoppy dryness. Poor palate, airy and highly carbonated carrying the leafy/papery flavors to the side of the mouth. I can only agree with many other raters, it doesn’t taste synthetic as much as chemical whether they used real fruits or not. More present yeast would certainly add character. Avoid imo, somehow tries to avoid the syrupy sweetness trap, but falls into an unknown offensive dryish unclean finish, spritzy, and drying out in an extremely mineral, almost metallic way.

This is a good Fruit Beer. Not overly fruity with some currant flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry.

jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2005
The first cassis beer I ever liked. But this is because it doesn’t taste like blackberries and I hate blackberries.
