37.5 cl bottle at home. Purple with a lighter purple head. Blackcurrant aromas and flavours are quite restrained compared to the raspberries in this breweries framboise. Fruity, tangy and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca. Chalice at home. Pours a wonderful bright reddish purple with a pink-red head that didnít last long. Slight lacing. Aroma of the black currents is strong with yeasts and tart berries. The taste was good with the black currents dominant but it seems very sweet for my tastes. It does finish slightly sour, but still more candy-like sweet than I usually like. Moderate body, heavy carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 25cL. A dark garnet beer with a medium pink head. Medium persistence. Lacing. Aroma of blackcurrant, sugar, acid note. Flood of sugary sweetness over light lasting sourness. Medium body, thin sticky texture, soft carbonation, sugary finish with a light sour touch. Overall, Iím disappointed : too sweet, makes me think of a cream of black currant liqueur or a syrup with just a small amount of fizzy water.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good presentation, bottle with cork. Once is opened strong cherry, raisins and honey aromas are felt. The body is medium - full, and the flavor has strong citric notes, with a nice bitterness. The aftertaste is quite sour, but at the same time is modulated by some light malty flavor, which is only felt at the end.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
375 ml bottle from The Party Source. Pours a deep blood red with a dark pinkish/reddish purple head. I like the nose on this one better than the Kriek. Black currants are complemented with a little sweetness but a good amount of fresh tartness and a bit of earth. The flavor doesnít quite stand up to that, but itís still pretty good. Not as sweet as the Kriek, and also more oaky. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a juicy, somewhat tart mouthfeel. I liked this better than I expected to.

Draught at The Porterhouse.Raspberry red, pink head, delightful. Lovely sweet and sour nose, raspberry highlights. Flavour is nice balance of sweet and sour, probably veering toward the sweet. Syrupy texture, a little carbonation. Sweet and sour finish. Nice.

Bottle pour. Red carbonated with a good head and nice lacing. Smells very sweet and fruity berries. Silky and lightly carbonated on the palate. Fruit taste that is very sweet.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle pour. Cloudy ruby red color with decent pink head. Strong fruit aroma (similar to a sangria). Taste has an instant sweet taste but becomes overpoweringly sweet with a strong sour taste. Not what I would look for in a beer.
