3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
25 cL bottle. Pours hazy brown/purple with a lacing off-white head. Very sweet black currants, a bit like cheap sugarish candy. Fills the room immediately when poured. Sweet sugarish berry flavour which goes into a very sharp acidity/citric finish. Black currants flavour keeps lingering far into the finish. Surprisingly clean and nice, but it only works in small quantities.

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.

3.1 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.

Bottled. Dark red colour, reddish foamy head. Lacing. Strong flavour of blueberries. Blueberries in flavour and a long bitterish finish. Mouthdrying. Very refreshing.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Bottle 25 cl) Dark red, close to black actually, with a reddish, dense and rather creamy head. Rather acidic both from the lambic and the black currant although lots of sugar is added. But very fresh indeed. 161199

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Deep purple, pink head. Tart evident black curant aroma. Sweet black currant flavour with a fair amount of drying vinegart acidity. Tart enough to be refreshing, but with a very straight forward and overpowering black currant flavour, taking away the complexity of the lambic base.

18th August 2009
3.5%. Cloudy purple beer with a magenta head! Palate is semi dry and semi crisp. Rich blackcurrant totally dominates. Tart enough to cause a bit of eyelid flutter but never overpowering. Finishes tart crisp and dry. An intensely fruity experience!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Brickskeller. Purple color, pink head that settles quickly, scant lacing. Aroma of fruit preserves. Taste starts sweet then progresses to light tartness. Pleasant enough, but not special.
