Blown away! This was a fantastic drink. Beautiful red body with frothy "pink" head. Looked more like a sparkling wine. The aroma was tantalizing. Very berry. The taste was awesome. Good feel in the mouth and more berries in the flavor. This is delicious. Will be stocking up.

wow this stuff rocks. Dark ruby with a thick fluffy strawberry sherbert colored head with great lacing on the glass. Black currents with some blackberry in the nose, same in the taste maybe a little more frutiy (strawberry?)

Dark purple in colour with a pink head. Aroma of blackcurrents, blueberries, blackberries and some plum. Flavour had some tartness, not overly sour, blackcurrents, grapes and some sweetness. Finish is a surgary sweetness.

A lot of berries which was quite pleasent but I did find it a little bit unbalanced. I found this a little too sweet for me.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 (Draught) Pours a purplish body with a medium-sized fusha head. Had a sweet black currant flavor with a somewhat sticky mouthfeel.

Bottle: I love lambic for many reasons as i stated in other ratings. This is another good fruit beer, although I prefer the cherry and raspberry, I have the utmost respect (as a homebrewer) for the process.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Sweet aroma - strong, but soft at the same time. Great cloudy red body with fluffy pink head. Taste is berries - sweet/sour/tart up front, but thinning out at the back - I thought it would have a dry-er finish. At the end is a nice hint of minty freshness (and no, I didn't just brush my teeth). Suitable for all ages.

Red color. Strong blackcurrant aroma. Very sweet and syrupy. A soft drink, not a beer…

bierkoning (11111) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2003
Strong blackcurrant aroma. Very sweet and sour blackcurrant flavor. The cassis juice doesn't leave room for other flavors. Occasionally a decent lambic flavor shines through. Just a bit milky. A nice teenagers drink, also suitable for adults with a sweet tooth.

500 ml bottle imported. Nice little pop when I unleashed the cork. Slight musty smell and a bit of fruit/berry in the initial whiff. Poured, the head is fine and a light pink, but goes away fairly quickly. The color is a deep ruby/purple color. Aromas of fruit, tin, vinegar and mold--but in a reassuring, good way--like a beer that's been laid down forever that absorbs some fine hint of dust from it's bottle. The taste is pucker and deep round berries--smoother and less tart than a framboise, with a less assertive fruit flavor. Nice.
