3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Sauer, Sauer, Sauer! Extrem saures Bier mit einem super Fruchtaroma der Schwarzen Johannisbeere, erinnert leicht an Berlinder Kindl mit Schuss Johannisbeere, aber dieses Bier ist noch intensiver da es ja mit den Beeren eingebraut wurde und kein Mischgetränk ist. Schmeckt aufjeden Fall sehr gut und ist auch erfrischend wenn es gut gekühlt ist!

I was a bit poorly when drinking this (I managed to get a cold in July) but anyway - bottle; pours ruby red with a frothy pink head, good retention and thin lacing. Aroma of blackcurrant and some raspberry. Taste is sweet blackcurrant flavour followed by sourness. Light body, light carbonation and a little syruppy. Somewhat like Ribena, pretty nice.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is of blackcurrant, sweet and a little sour. The colour of blackcurrant juice, the head huge and stable. Very sour indeed, a lemony kind of sourness, and not much of anything else. Medium body, a squeezing kind of feeling on the tongue, very little carbonation remains in the glass, tart and sour finish. At least not very artficial and not sickeningly sweet, so that’s good, I suppose.

Interessante lambic alla frutta con aggiunta di zucchero. Colore vernacia senza schiuma. Al naso molto fruttata. In bocca corpo medio leggero bassisimo tenore alcolico ed acidità bilanciata dallo zuchero aggiunto. Il sapore ricorda un succo di cassis anzi che una birra. X gli amanti delle lambic acide io la sconsiglierei ma invece risulta ottima come bevanda rinfrescante e dissetante.

Bottle from Charter Mall supermarket, Chongqing Lu, Changchun, China. Pours purple with a pink head. Aroma of blackcurrant, sharp edge to the taste - not sweet. Lovely on a hot summer’s day.

37.5 cl bottle at home. Purple with a lighter purple head. Blackcurrant aromas and flavours are quite restrained compared to the raspberries in this breweries framboise. Fruity, tangy and refreshing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Boca. Chalice at home. Pours a wonderful bright reddish purple with a pink-red head that didn’t last long. Slight lacing. Aroma of the black currents is strong with yeasts and tart berries. The taste was good with the black currents dominant but it seems very sweet for my tastes. It does finish slightly sour, but still more candy-like sweet than I usually like. Moderate body, heavy carbonation.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 25cL. A dark garnet beer with a medium pink head. Medium persistence. Lacing. Aroma of blackcurrant, sugar, acid note. Flood of sugary sweetness over light lasting sourness. Medium body, thin sticky texture, soft carbonation, sugary finish with a light sour touch. Overall, I’m disappointed : too sweet, makes me think of a cream of black currant liqueur or a syrup with just a small amount of fizzy water.
