dreamboat (186) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2004

Ungstrup (29018) - 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 (1826) - 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 (2584) - 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 (643) - 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.

bu11zeye (11925) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAR 17, 2004
(Bottle) Pours q pinkish-red color with a medium-sized pinkish colored head. Descent tasting lambic with flavors os black currants and a strong tartness. Aroma of a sweet berry.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - MAR 4, 2004
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.
