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.

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

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

Nicht ganz so süß wie das Kriek von Lindemans,obwohl auch das Cassis Opfer von Süßungsmittel wurde.
Geschmacklich dominieren hier leicht saure Johannisbeernoten.
