COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 courtesy of larry pitonka. Pours a red and cloudy beer with a thin tan head. Smells of currants, lots of sourness and buttery. Taste is very sour with a nice compliment of black currants. Great take on a fruit beer!

12oz bottle via bonus with robertsreality. Damn Rob thanks again. I’ve been wanting try this for a while now. Pours reddish strawberry brown, like a smoothie made with old fruite. Head is 1 finger wide and a reddish white. The nose is light and slighty fruity. The taste has a big alcholic punch and is very vinious and sharp. Not the best taste or feeling from a fruit beer but its not horrid either. I would have hoped perhaps after almost 2 years that this may have mellowed some.

Murky, muddy tan pink color with a taupe/pink head. Looks somewhat like an imitation chocolate milk drink that even has come small curds. This one has even set for a couple months, but it looks like it was shaken and abused. Currants dominate the aromas. Some hints of scones and rust. Quite chemical in aroma. Currant and grape skin tannins abound. Sour apple, dark cherries, apricot pits and lime zest wander about. A light tartness and mild astringency meander about as well. Why do I think many a brew looked like this a few hundred years ago. A tough brew to slog through in a odd way. Rough to look at, some interesting, yet odd flavors, still a brew that makes one reflect back to a time when life wasn’t filtered, pasteurized and hermetically sealed. Thanks Larry Pitonka for this rough gem.

SamuraiArtist (292) - portland, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2007
2005 Bottle; Pours an amazing cloudy pink grapefruit color with a thin white head. Aroma of tart acidic fruit. Flavor is of incredible fruit juice and cranberry flavor. Tart sweet and sour with a touch of hops. Alcohol is completely unnoticeable and this beer tastes more like a yeasty carbonated fruiit juice than beer, and i mean that in a good way. I quite enjoyed it.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 15, 2007
Pours a murky purplish pinkish brown color, topped by a lively head of um ... pink suds. The head is short lived, but leaves decent lacing. Tart fruit in the aroma, more like tart cherry than currant. Some yeast in there as well. Starts out sweet and tart - fruity and oakey and complex and then wham it switches rapidly to a dry almost astringent finish. More like pomegranate mixed with mushy over ripe black cherry at this point. A little too tangy in the end to be enjoyed a whole lot, but a leathery tobacco flavor in there is interesting. Medium to full body, well carbonated. But the beer seems muddled and a bit too astringent.
