3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep purple in colour with an odd pink head. This beer is really a one note wonder: loads of cassis aroma and flavor, but not much else going on. There’s not much lactic sourness, yeast, orwheat malt character at all. It starts out light on the palate, and gets a little heavy and cloying as time goes on. All of that being said, I like cassis flavor quite a bit, so this wasn’t all that bad for me.

Man, do black currants have an odd smell. Magenta-purple in color with a pink-lavender head. Much better than the Unibroue Ephemere black currant beer I had; plus, this guy gets better as you go along. Almost makes you think black currants belong in beer...almost.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark red color with a pinkish head. Aroma is sweet but light. Taste is pure fruit and yeast. Aftertaste is sweet and does get addictive. Sip slow and enjoy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark red with a pink head. Mild berry aroma, with a lot of sugary notes there. Sticky sweet currant flavour, way too cloying for me. Medium feel, but too sticky.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pink head on a ruby red body. It is meant as a sweet beer, and it tastes so. Very nice as apéritif or together with dessert. Very tasty and nice to drink. A dream on a hot day.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours ruby red with a nice layer of persistent pink head. Aromas of pomegranate, pepper, and a strong musky/catty element. Not thick or heavy on the palate, but so lively that it give the impression of a full mounthfeel. Interesting and delicious play between the sour and sweet, leaning toward the sour with sour cranberry and grape skin flavors. Some earthy musky notes here too, that make me think a bit of a Beaujolais-Village. I know, I know, not the most traditional example of the style, very tasty anyway.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours like a carbonated red wine. Sharp and funky aroma reminiscent of moldy rotting fruit. Whoa, the black current flavor is almost red meat like. Not immediatly pleasing. Nice juicy and organic mouth feel though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled at DBF 2005.
Deep redddish colour with a red head.
Aroma is totally dominated by black currants.
Acidic flavour of black currants (in Denmark we would say that it tastes like Ribena Solbær).
Not bad, but I must admit, that I’m not very fond of black currants.
