steve23mj (273) - Essexville, Michigan, USA - JAN 5, 2005
Pours deep copper color with red tinged head. Nose is berrylike with sour and citrus character. Flavor is stingy, with tartness known with other lambics. There is an underlying sweetness. Dry tart finish.

caesar (5968) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2004
Slightly hazy red to purple color, medium head. Aroma of sweet artificial fruit, blackcurrant, some marzipan. Sweet taste like most of the mort subite beers, and to this one they added a bunch of blackcurrant esters.

Ungstrup (31462) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2004
A very lively beer, that blew the top of when opened. The color is a hazy red amber with a light brown huge head. The aroma is surprisingly sour - very nice - with clear notes of black currant, but also lemon. The flavor is sweet from the black currant, but on a quite sour, very fresh background, other notes is of lemon, grapefruit, and hints of wood.

rgrep (156) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - SEP 10, 2004
(5 Apr 04) Has a big confectionary aroma of cassis (blackcurrant) and bubblegum, reminiscient of grape-flavour Hubba Bubba. It pours a medium red/brown with a large, rocky and creamy pinkish head. The body starts off heavily sweet and finishes long with a yoghurt sourness.

boto (1981) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 27, 2004
25cl bottle: This beer pours with a fairly large red-tinged head. It subsided quickly, despite the fizziness of the beer. It is a clear, lighter reddish-copper color. The aroma is all curants. They smell a bit tart . A nice tart lambic flavor , but I agree with it being a bit artificial tasting. Rates an OK for the style, but not a must have.

Shag (2723) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2004
Appearance is a dark copper color with a large head. Aroma is currant. Flavor is currant and sour jolly rancher apple candy. Aftertaste is a little sour with a carbonated mouthfeel. Not a bad lambic but a little to artifical for my liking.

skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Much was over the top on this one, including Huge candied (almost artificial) currant aroma. Bottled opened like an agitated cola - spewing froth all over the place. The head, carbonation and lacing were amazing. The flavor was sweet, with a puckering, tart aftertaste - but not bad. Warming only pronounced the tartness. I was seeking something between the sweetness of a Lindeman's and the sourness of Cantillon, and for that - this was a success - faults and all. I can see how the reviews could be mixed on this one.
