Having tried the S-kriek and the S-grape before, I got my expectations up in the clouds going into this. Pouring this beer is half the pleasure since its oh so beautiful! The colour is coral/red/violet (crush some black currants in your palm and compare the colour to this brew). Nose is typical spontan-beer aroma with raw fruit and acidity, and just behind this barrier, the cassis creeps up on you, awesome! Light, white head. Nice contrast to the reddish colour of the beer. On first taste, the acidity and dryness stands out, but a couple of more focused sips brings out subtle notes of pre-ripe black currant. Next time I’ll let it warm up a bit more to fully bring out the aroma and flavours. Overall, great beer, allthough somewhat too sour for the cassis to fully develop. Usage; cassis-sorbet and some of this brew might be the bomb! :-)
