MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, - AUG 24, 2009
Bottle 370 ml 3.5%. Age roughly 1 year piror to tasting. Poured deep dark ruby with an averaged sized, loose, rocky, purple head which was mostly diminishing. Aroma was of Ribena (blackcurrant concentrate) with great forest floor notes, plum juice, port wine jelly and light yeasty/barnyard notes. Flavor was of acidic fruit with sour red grape skins, tart blackberries, blackcurrant juice, wild berry yogurt, port wine jelly and light musty notes. Light to medium bodied with lively carbonation, a dry tart mouthfeel, lightly syrupy texture and a good length finish. Extremely complex yet refreshing.

maxwelldeux (3725) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle. Pours a purplish brown color with a moderate pinkish tan head on there. Nose is pleasantly fruity, with blackberries and currants coming off there. Taste is quite sweet and definitely fruity, yet manages not to be overwhelmingly heavy.

gripweed57 (734) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2014
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.

slowrunner77 (5986) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2014
"poured nearly the color of grape juice, with a nice pink/light purple head. smelled sweet and funky. Tasted very sweet (as sweet as the Framboise) but with considerably more lambic funk (in the nose and flavor). you could easily taste the fruity currant flavor as well. while i enjoyed it, it was the least drinkable of the three i’ve tried to date (raspberry, apple, black currant). the tart/sour & sweet mix that worked well at first got a little old after 8-12 oz. Not badmouthing, though. it’s an interesting beer worth trying. Don’t know if I’ll drop another $6+ for 12 oz. any time soon, though."

eduardovl (891) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
250ml bottle served in a Lindermans flute glass. A: Pours a dark purple plum color forming a small light purple head. Medium retention and some lacings left S: Smells like a Lambic, I mean, sweet fruitiness, and, at the same time, tart and bit vinegar. Lambic yeasts T: Follows the nose. Sweet fruity upfront followed by an acid and tart Lambic taste. Metallic. Lambic yeasts are a must M: Light, fizzy carbonated body. Fruity and acid O: Easy drinking Lambic. More acid than the average but still an interesting experience [ BA Review @ 6/23/2012 ]

gunnar (5474) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2014
Shared bottle at Pivovarsky Klub, Prague. Pours clear dark reddish with a small pink head. Strong and intense aroma of blackcurrant. Taste is very sweet fruty and or but also light acidic, worked nice as a palate cleaner, more of a soft drink than a beer imo.

JefVerstraete (1482) - Ghent, BELGIUM - OCT 2, 2014
Bottle from B&S Drinks, Leuven. Dark red colour, pink foam. Aroma of blackcurrant, candy and lemon. Sour beer with sweet sugary hints. More lemonade than beer but not very bad.

0,375l Flasche. Dunkelrote Farbe wie beim Rotwein mit einem rosa Schaum. Duft nach Cassis bzw. Beeren. Schmeckt nach reifen Beeren und einerleicht herben Note. Sehr angenehm.

Kita (1129) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle, 0.25l. Murky ruby color with small frothy reddish head. Aroma of black currant, vinegar, barnyard and horse blanket. Taste starts sour fruity and vinous, follows by sweet black currant syrup with earthy and metallic mouthfeel, while finish is very light bitter, maybe just because of grape skins. Medium body, syrupy texture and fizzy natural carbonation in palate. Way above my initial expectations...

Smell is sweet and sour currant. Taste is the same and man is it delicious.
