obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2004 Pink purple clear with lots of sparkle and thick pinkish head. Yeasty, wood, strong cassis, and sour lemon nose. Med weight w/light finish. Delicate flavors of vanilla, yeast, and light wood, with a light berry cassis quality. The nose promised more than the palate delivers, not enough acid in the end.

Cloudy, reddish brown, small off white head, light aroma of black currant, flavor is a subtle sweetness of fruit, light on the palate, not tart in my opinion. could use either more fruit or more tartness

IslandHaole (1157) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - NOV 19, 2004
A cloudy ruby color with a tiny white head. A tart fruit scent. A tart nose with some yeast and barnyard scents. A bit thin, not very complicated but an interesting tart fruit beer.

Des Geants have trapped a cloud and are slowly bottling it with the long forlorn soul of a black currant in each bottle...Not horrid, just horribly vapid...

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 31, 2004
Cherry red hazy beer with a rose or tulip aroma with yeast. Sour cherry and phenolics come out. This could have been an interesting fruit beer if the beer wasnt contaminated.

Hugh (197) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - JUN 25, 2004
Big head. Expected red colour. Little aroma. Unpleasant thin bodied beer - the basis beer may be pils. Certainly tastes more like syrup than real berries. Really needs an ale body to carry this sort of thing off, like Schelde Schoenlappertje. Threw this one away. Expected better.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2004
Reddish coloured. Aroma of black currant and lingonberries. Notes of yeast in th flavour. Notes of tea as well. Rather light.

Ungstrup (31467) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 17, 2004
An unclear red-brown beer with a fine beige lacing head. The aroma is sweet cherries and the flavor is a weird sweet and sour flavor with notes of cherries, black currant, and corriander. It has a dry finish.

skortila (4914) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAR 27, 2004
Aroma of blackcurrant. Hazy, amber-red/pink coloured with a lasting head. Taste is blackcurrant again, some yeasts and slight bitterness. Dry palate.

JorisPPattyn (8795) - Ursel, BELGIUM - FEB 26, 2004
Slight gushing to huge, fuchsia-coloured head, dissipating; amber-ruby-pink beer, clear. Nose of cassis, but also cat's pee(=blackcurrant leaves, valerian), cassis sherbet. Yeasty-meaty taste, like meat-aspic for pâté's or so. And a faint fruity flavour, identifiable as blackcurrant. Very light mouthfeel & texture. Aftertaste becomes soupy - that is, soup for a juvenile delinquents interning institute. Godawful light beer, perfumed as in cheap Dior-fake.
