3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Pours a deep reddish-purple, with a large crimson-tinged head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves decent lacing. The aroma is mainly sweet blackcurrant, with some sour notes lurking in the background. To be honest, it smells mainly of Ribena. The taste is, thankfully, much more pleasant. It is quite strongly sour to begin, with some faint woody notes leading into sweetly fruity blackcurrant set against a nicely sour background. The fruitiness of the blackcurrant comes through more strongly in the finish, and there is a pleasantly sour aftertaste. I find fruit lambics can be a bit hit and miss; it really depends on the fruit. Blackcurrant seems to work pretty well with the sourness of the beer itself, although it does rather dominate the aroma. All in all, however, this is a very pleasant beer.

Pours purple opaque colour with pinky creamy head. Aroma of caramel, bilberry. Similar is flavor: Sugary sweet with sourish dry / sweet finish.
Good for hot summer days, but this is not true lambic-Fruit.

37.5cl bottle. Hazy purplish red colour with a thin pinkish head. Berries, acid, barnyard and citrus aroma. Average carbonation and medium body. Taste is tart at first but balanced by the berries and fruity notes. Sweet finish. Overall, a bit sweet but nice beer.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer spreads immediately a wonderful aroma of ripe black currant. The taste is slightly sour and palate is blackcurrant. Furthermore, the mouth feeling like a sparkling wine and it’s definitely a lambic with large format. It is a real gem as determined suitable as an aperitif on a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Ölrepubliken. Pours hazy purplish red with a big frothy and creamy purplish pinkish white head that slowly dissipates while leaving lots of sticky trace on the glass. Smell is fruity with wheat crackers, black currants, lemon juice, hay, barnyard, minerals and lemon peal. Taste is sweet, slightly sour, heavy fruity and tiny earthy. Mouthfeel is round, tart, tiny berry skin astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is slightly sweet and sour with wheat crackers, black currants, lemon juice, hay, dry soil, iron and lemon peal. Black currant lemonade in every sense of the words. I love black currants but this is far from both lambic and beer. Tasty fruity drink on a hot summer day though and the appearance is quite amazing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
