4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.375l corked and capped bottle. Oh my this looks superb. It has this deep dark cloudy purple color on the pour, like the deepest beetroot purple and on top a nice medium sized red pink and quite lasting head, leaving small lacework down the sides of the glass. It has a earthy and sweet really fruity nose. Tons of sweet blueberries and blackberries, and a rush of black currants. I get some raspberries in the blend also and it’s a quite cork infused as well. This smells a lot better than I thought before popping the cap. Really nice. It doesn’t taste bad either this. A surprisingly full-bodied experience with a oily mouthfeel and a just below average carbonation level. Both sweet and a little sour in the taste, and again, it’s packed with dark berries like the blue and black ones but it’s the slightly sour black currants that dominates. Reminds me of the jam my mother used to make. I’m surprised over how much I actually enjoyed this one, but there’s no doubt this is a lovely berry infused and tasty beer. 11.03.2016

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At Bruges Beer Fest. It appears hazy dark purple with a pink fluffy head. The foam tastes like yoghurt. The aroma contains predominantly blackcurrant, also sugar, wheat and yeast. Tastes medium sweet and medium sour. Light in body but oily in texture. Pleasant mouthfeel. A bit too much sweetness.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark red body with a light rosa head.
Rich black currant aroma and flavour. Very little malt. Rather sweet taste with no bitterness but a fair amount of sour, citrusy notes.
Light/medium body with smooth mouthfeel and soft carbonation.
This may not be a real lambic beer to some, but I really like the intense fruity character. Not complex but still very tasty, and black currants are wonderful.
