Boutip (4494) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2004
Bottle – Pourred a deep purple/amber brew with a nice bubbly head. Great carbonation with good head retention. Aroma of cassis is very present. Taste is very sweet and cassis are easily identifiable. Very easy to drink, a bit likes juice. Acidic and tarter aftertaste no very much present for a lambic. Overall, a very enjoyable beer but probably not as complex as some other fruit lambic can be.

JagerQueen (123) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Sharp, sour aroma-similar taste. Pours an amber brown, contains some sweet flavors, but mostly the lambic was tart and slightly sour. Better when warmed, but overall, there are better lambics.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Reddish amber in color with ahuge frothy head. Aroma is very heavy with the currant. Flavor is sweet almost like a fruit soda. MOuthfeel is more tingly than any beer I've ever drank almost like champagne. Finish is very tangy maybe borderline sour. Very new to the style. Not bad.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JAN 9, 2004
This is my first ever blackcurrant beer! I do like this beer even though it is very artificial in both aroma and flavor.
It has a reddish amber colored body with a frothy head. I can't say if the aroma is blackcurrant, because as said it is very artificial fruity. Like chewing gum. The flavor is just as artificial and I wonder if they used real berries in this beer at all....?
Not much of a beer, but drinkable.

Crit (3245) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2003
Reddish amber,huge light pink head.Great blackcurrent nose.Slightly vinegary huge fruity flavor that seems both sweet and tart at different times lingers on the palate.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 18, 2003
Red color; pink head. Cassis candies aroma. Dryer, more sour, less sweet (therefore less cloying) than the Lindemans'.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2003
My favourite fruit pastille (jelly lolly) is the blackcurrant. Well it is clear that they brewed this by opening about 50 packets of these things into the mash. Needless to say the blackcurrant aroma is huge as is the colour through its reddish purple hue. The head is firm rocky and long lasting with the subsequent flavour being sharp and sweet at the same time, a clean and crisp greeting of the palate. The touch of lambic sourness balances well with the sweetness, even the burp is good. The bitterness is low but is not a negative factor. I am pleased to see this will also ward off a cold with its L-ascorbique acid content.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2003
A very basic lambic. Pours a purple-ish pink color with a big frothy carbonated head. Very cloying, overly sweet, with cheap wine like fruit flavors. Finish is bitter and metallic.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2003
Bottled, Pasteurised. Red amber beer with pink head. Cloyng sweet atrocity. Overwhelming cheap blackcurrant flavour like spangles. YUK

diabel (1590) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - NOV 1, 2003
Dark red colour, white head. Sweet cassis aroma. (what a surprise) It is not bad but it tastes more like some kind of soda than like beer.
