3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smell of very very potent blackcurrant, smells like concentrated blackcurrant juice, like Ribena, but instead of sweetness a slight tart touch. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy,and yet again goes back to the juice concentrate thing, big negative. Taste is straight forward blackcurrant juice, with a bit of tartness, what I find in all the Mikkeller SpontanSeries is that the only sour ale quality is a tartness, and never any funk or yeast interesting quality, this is a straight forward blackcurrant juice with a bit of acidity.

Tap at Mikkeller BKK. Goddamn, this one was the shit. Nice and curranted out nose, funked out to bits. Carbonation levels are perfect. Puckering levels are perfect. Touches of barnyard funk, currant fruit, and brett bubbling up at you in the finish. GREAT brew right here.

Dark red, could almost look like a stout if you didn’t have a sense of smell to hint you that this is one of the fruitiest things you can get! Super, super fruity, almost smells like the english fruit drink "Ribena". Taste is intensely sour and you get every aspect of the black currants; the sweetness, sourness and tart bitterness. Very drinkable, almost too much so.

25-OCT-2013, draft @Mikkeller & Friends.
Beautiful dark red with lasting red/pink head.
Ribena aroma - really berry-like with loads of blackcurrant. Very tart with some brett notes but never nail polish remover-like.
Full body for a spontan. Extremely tart, actually but a lovely blackcurrant drink. Almost as good as the Spontandoubleblueberry. Just I am not a huge fan of Blackcurrant.

On tap at Mikkeller & Friends, October 2013.
Dark red with a small pinkish head. A lot of Blackcurrant both in the aroma and taste. Also wood in a dry and sour finish. Very refreshing and nicely drinkable, The best one so far in the Spontan-series from Mikkeller.
