Well I'm gonna have to go against the rest because I loved this one. Great gift for Valentines Day too :-) Awesome aroma- not like any other. Nice burgundy color, amazingly sweet but surprisingly not too sour. Ultimate heaven in my mouth.

alteregoo (279) - POLAND - JUN 30, 2015
Piana różowa, średnio obfita i sycząca, utrzymuje się tylko w postaci niewielkiej pierzynki, barwa ciemno czerwona, lekko zamglona. Aromat dość intensywny, przede wszystkim czarne porzeczki, jeżyny i nieco dzikich, lekko stajennych nut na przyjemnym, akceptowalnym dla "niewtajemniczonych" poziomie. W smaku podobnie, przypomina lekko nagazowany dość słodki sok z czarnych porzeczek z dodatkiem cytryny i piwa Faro. Dla tych, którzy nie pili jeszcze Lambiców może to być świetne piwo "inicjacyjne". Bez wątpienia bowiem dodatek cukru łagodzi kwaśność i dzikość charakterystyczną dla "czystego" Lambica, pozbawiając go przy tym głębi i "pazura".

Sour, fruity (never had a black currant, so I don’t know what they taste like), with some heavy funk as well.

umich03jm (2706) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is sugary black currants and grape juice. Tastes the same. Strong sweetness. Very little sourness and just a hint of tart in the finish. Moderately acidic. Not great. Way too sweet.

37.5 cl bottle, Best before 21 Jan 2016. Dark burgundy colour with a creamy, dull, cherry tinge head which reduced to a ring but left tremendous lacing. Aroma of black currants, white wine and some mustiness. Low / medium tartness and low/medium sweetness. Medium body, sticky texture, spritzy and a lingering, yet pleasant, tart finish. Very nice. 8.

Beautiful dark pour, and fruity aromatic head, drinks like a good lambic bubbly, slightly sour and tart, currants are a very nice addition.
