This special release was brewed on July 12th and bottled on September 8th, 2005. I used locally grown black currants to give this beer an intense berry flavor. Made with love,reverance and respect for the great beers of Belgium.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Bottle @ 5 Kay, 7.5 Kay, 10 Kay Tasting. Ugly pour. Pretty soupy reddish brown with a small head. Pretty rough nose. Quite yeasty. Muddled red fruits and leather. Sickly apple. Taste is soft of similar, all over the place. Red berries covered in cocoa powder. Bready. Slightly sour. Some general cardboard oxidization. Very cool to try, but clearly a shadow of its former self.

Bottle shared at the 5K/7.5K/10K tasting - who has a 7.5K tasting?, from an IP trade with MJ, 30/12/14. Murked up reddish amber with moderate off white spotting - touch of festival toilet water about the appearance! Nose is raspberry, straw, fruit syrup, quite rich fruit considering the age. Taste comprises blackcurrant jelly, oxidisation has set in but not OTT, fruit gum, red berry syrup. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet berry and must in the close. Ok as fruit beers go and certainly considering the age.

Leighton (18695) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 28, 2015 Bottle shared in London - thanks to Colin for this. Pours murky brown with a bubbly head; looks like poop water. Smells like tart fruits, a bit of meat. Light sweet flavor with old berries, wood, leather, earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly tart on the finish, some old raisins, berries, earth. Not bad in the end. Has aged interestingly.

Scopey (12705) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 30, 2014
Bottle thanks to Colin. It pours filthy, murky pond water brown with minimal head. The nose is juicy, berry, soft fruits, blackcurrant, jammy, earth, wood, candy andlight tart fruitiness. The taste is bitter, woody, jammy berry, blackcurrant, musty, damp wood, earth, light acidity with dry, earthy finish. Medium body and low carbonation. Looks pretty aweful....tastes a bit better though.

12oz bottle, from Wendy and Alan. Thanks! Pours a murky, cloudy, pinkish-brown color with a thin white head. Aroma is fruity, raspberry, some light sherry and oxidation. Medium on the palate with lively carbonation, even after 8 years. Flavor is sweet, bready, yeasty, tart, fruity, blackcurrant, raspberry, some sherry oxidation, with a light fruity finish. An ugly beer, no doubt, but it held up reasonably well and is still pretty tasty after 8 years.

DialSquare (4321) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 6, 2013
Me and the missus got this at the brewery several years ago and we sat on it for some reason. Not exactly sure why, but it’s the oldest brew I had in my "cellar" (a box in my daughter’s room). murky orange-brown sludgy pour with a slight white ring. aroma is soft peach, caramel, cherry. tastes are dried fruit, the currants, lightly tart, buttery, berries, raisins. soft carbonation. based on the recent ratings I wasn’t expecting much, but it was a fun sipper.

Cloudy pink brown beer, no real head. Not pretty! Dry palate. Woody dryness with mild tart blackcurrant. Mild lactose like sweetness in the undertone. Semi dry finish. A slightly odd beer - ugly as hell but with a pleasant blackcurrant that avoids being too acidic.

Ungstrup (34643) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 2, 2011
Bottled. A murky dark red beer with an off-white head. The aroma has notes of raspberries and straw. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw and raspberries, leading to a dry raspberry finish.

Plovmand (7878) - Helsinge, DENMARK - APR 28, 2011
Bottle at Papsø. Pours muddy amber with a small white head. The aroma is root crop, berries, blackcurrant and caramel. The flavour is fruit, berries, blackcurrant, caramel and ends up quite bitter.
