KajII (799) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - NOV 5, 2010
Bottle. Poured a dark red with an average sized pink head that was mostly lasting and had fair lacing. The aroma was strong with black currants, a moderate dark bread malt and a light sweet yeast. It tasted sweet and acidic from beginning to end with the finish being strong with black currants that lingered on the pallet for an average amount of time. Mouthfeel was medium in body and dry in texture with a soft carbonation. Overall quite tasty and would be great mixed with a nice chocolate stout.

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.

ruigo (1605) - PORTUGAL - JUL 20, 2015
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.

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.

markschiedon (360) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 9, 2015
Drinking from a 25 cl bottle. Red fruit, cassis, sweet berries, bubble gum in the aroma. The unclear red beer has a medium reddish head. A sweet sour taste. High carbonated.

_angst_ (3545) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2015
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.

alteregoo (315) - 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.
