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.

di color mirtillo con poca schiuma molto evanescente al naso il mirtillo sovrasta i lievi off flavour e prepara l eccessiva dolcezza in ingresso in bocca. nel finale esce l aspro dei mirtilli e una lieve astringenza. corpo esilissimo e carbonatazione un filo eccessiva. perfetta se fosse meno carica di mirtilli e con un abv un filo piu generoso dei 3,5 che porta che ne darebbe anche un po piu di corpo e una uscita più lambic. ad ora è quasi succo al mirtillo gassato. con i dolci comunque un bell abbinamento.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Refreshing tasting beer... Pours a dark purple plum colour forming a small light purple head. Aroma is pleasantly fruity, with blackberries and currants coming off there.
Intense fresh black currant aroma, some funky notes. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. is quite sweet and definitely fruity, yet manages not to be overwhelmingly heavy.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a unique dark red-pink, bubbly head, among a glowy red color.
Very fruity aromas, ripe currant as the nose defining component, with sweet, almost marmelade like qualities. A gentle sour aspect adds to the complexity of the smell, while I can’t detect any acidic, funky notes.
Taste includes a whole lot of currant berries, along with a slightly fermented, ripe fruit sweetness, which meets the palate in an almost smooth, very soft fashion. Sourness gives the fruit flavor a refreshing punch, while it remains supportive throughout. Interacts well with the sweetnes of the brew, adding a convincing, fruit focused balance. Finishes with fruits still being on top of the game, while sourness almost faded, leaving some space for bready malt clues.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
750 ml bottle. Deep purple color, like grape juice. Rocky pink head. Exquisitely ornate Belgian lacing. Funky, fruity grape nose. Big grape and funk flavor upfront. Tart fruitiness follows. Finish is slightly dry and oily. Tough interesting, it’s not something I would drink much of.
