3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear, orange amber pink color with a small foamy pink/beige head. Initially a very sweet, candy-like aroma but some of the tart scent is noticeable as well.
Sweet berry flavor up front with a woody tart middle the follow is slightly bitter with a stronger tartness. A nice middle ground Lambic somewhere between the Sweet Belle-Vue and the potent over the top tart Cantillon.
