2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sweet and artificial flavour. Not at all like a beer, more just a black currant soda, like some others mentioned. Really disappointing.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cloudy dark red, medium lasting pink head. Aroma of blackcurrant, quite penetrating. Taste is sweet, blackcurrant, carbonating. It just tastes like a cassis soda. Not complex at all.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma of berries, sweet and artificial. Cloudy, dark red coloured with a lasting, medium punk head. Taste is sweet siruppy, fruity (berries) and a slight sour finish. Sticky beer with a more dry finish.

Is it beer, or is it something else?? Well, pink head, and fine clear red colour. Both aroma and flavor is full of black currant. Sort of funny beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Labeled at only 3.5% ABV. A red beer with a huge pink head. The aroma is powerfully black currant - and nothing else - just like black currant juice - nice, but not really what I want in my beer. The flavor is very sweet with a good acidity and lots of black currant, leading to a dry woody note. I like the combination of the sweet black currant juice and the acidity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is of strong currant. Cassis pours a deep purple with a light violet head and lots of lacing. There is a sweetness to the palate with a strong taste of currant. The finish is sour and pleasent.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is sweet with a lot of berries and a little wheat. The appearance is purple-red and hazy and the head leaves lots of lace. The flavor is very vinous and exhibits plenty of sweet fruity black current taste without too much bitterness. Aftertaste is tart, sweet, and slightly sour. Totally likable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg.
Cherry red, light pink head. Pure juicy black currant nose with an actual malty feel to it, though only 3,5. Black currant juice in flavour with a sour-sweetish(there is an addition of 25% fructose) tone.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smells wonderful. Light syrupy sweet flavor with lots of foam. Nice black currant flavor, reminds me of a soda. These are especially good as a break between heavy duty beers.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big fruit nose, and poured a claret with a pink head with tons of lacking. Flavor was interesting. Unlike a few, I didn’t find this overly sweet. Had a touch of mint and a refreshing tartness. Very enjoyable
