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 (742) - 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 (6166) - 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.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Deep purple brown. Small faintly purple tinged soda like head, mostly dissipating. Sweet grainy, wine like nose. Light bodied, steady carbonation. Faintly sweet. Has an artificial-ness to it. Tastes like it is spiced as well. Im not terribly impressed by this, yet it is quite refreshing. Perhaps on ice with some bourbon and soda.

caesar (6297) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2005
Hazy orange color, short off-white head. Aroma of some malt and hop, very weak, some blackberry. Very watery taste, bit sweet. Slightly sticky palate. Very boring.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - APR 20, 2005
33cl bottle. Pours purple-ish with a slightly pink head that dies quickly, leaving nothing but its memory. Earthy aroma that reminds me of elderberries a bit, so that must be the blackcurrant...but the aroma is very light. Finishes dry with a bit of bitterness. Like their Saison, I just don’t find much here. Mellow currant flavor and a bit of malt. At least it isn’t sweet is about all I can say. Completely unimpressive overall.
