Drake (9999) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2009 Version 1 375 mL C&C bottle courtesy of jdubFL. 2000th rating! Huzzah! Pours a peach tinted copper color with a thin head. Aroma is tart currants, citrus, cheese, nutty and huge rustic funky notes. Taste is tart currant and berry notes. Dry citrus funk notes as well. Cheesy and funky. There’s a lot going on here. Low carbonation and very smooth.

Thanks Larry for being able to get this for me. I broke it out to celebrate my lady’s birthday. It pours with no head but a nice purple/pink/reddish color. Aroma is light apple, light acetone, and some cork and wood. It also seems like heat coming off, not alcohol but a warming spiciness in there. Flavor is more of a lambic with earthy sourness and a bretty backbone. No real berry flavor, just some in the burps I have. It has a pretty flat body akin to an unblended lambic almost. That weird part of the aroma definitely comes out at the end of the beer as well. If I were attribute something to the cassis in the flavor it would not be sweet but just an earthy, green, skin aspect.
375mL cork and wire, New Belgium round goblet glass.

BeerandBlues2 (10496) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear ruby with a spare, fizzy, white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is average malt (hay, bread), light hop (flowers), heavy yeast (horse blanket, barnyard) with bandage, medicine, currants, and cellar. Medium bodied, slick texture, light carbonation, and a tart-dry finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity, and heavy sourness. This one seemed less tart and acidic than expected with heavy yeasty overtones.

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 6, 2009
A Mes rate. Barrel at the Weekend of Tarts.
A very clean blood red colour. Cassis syrup, slight nail polish, great fruit just slightly astringent. Again, a little too acid to really get excited about. A very clean finish with plenty of length. Really good but cassis is not usually my thing.

Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2009
Bottled. A deep red beer with a thin reddish head. The aroma has notes of black currant, acetone, wood, and brettanomyces. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of black currant juice and brettanomyces, and with an acidity hitting late and burning in the top of the throat. Huge thanks to KimJohansen for sharing.
