From the bottle. Poured pink, some head. Smells of berries and sourness. The sourness is pretty extreme on the palate but I found it enjoyable.

Bottle at BrewDog Edinburgh. Gorgeous red/pink colour, white head fades to nothing. Big sour vinous nose - redcurrant, slight raspberry perhaps. Dry palate, slight hint of red fruit, pink grapefruit. Big sour hit but slightly short finish. Not bad at all, but as with all the Spontans, it’s hard not to compare with Cantillon, and there is a clear winner...

Bottle @ BBF’11:
Light white head, that disappears quick, on top of a clear yellow colored beer.
Taste light sour, yeast, some fruit, lemon, light sweet but more sour.
Medium carbo, full body, watery mouthfeel and texture.
Luckily way better than the Spontankriek!

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2011 Sampled @ SBWF on September 29. Pours pinkish with a fluffy white head. Smell is sour and fresh. Lots of fresh fruits and a slight smell of chlorine. Taste is sour and has a nice tart character. It’s quite dry. The red currants are clearly present but they don’t start dominating the taste until some time has passed which results in a very nice aftertaste.

Bottled. A red beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma has notes of vinegar, brettanomyces, red currant, and wood. The flavor is acidic with notes of brettanomyces, wood, vinegar, red currant, and a bit of malt, leading to a very tart and mouthpuckering finish.
