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.

Bottle. Pours a murky brown/purple color which is really hard to describe. Perhaps a "chalky purple drink" . The head is initially about an inch deep and purple-brown in color, it slowly fades down to a decent layer and ring over the beer. Good foamy lacing is left behind. Aroma is fruity and slightly woody, reminiscent of cherry pits. Medium bodied, very fruity and carbonated to a lively level. Very full of currant flavor which I am not fond of. Moderate bittersweet fruit presence. You know this was made of currant. Pretty well done, despite my dislike for currants.
