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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of black currant & talcum - dry & old. Pink champagne foamy lacing head above weak Cherry Kool-Aid clear liquid. Medium-high carb in med watery body. Sour start, currant & cherry. Bitter soapy finish & weak fruity after. Refreshing but not a great lambic.

Pale amber mixed with pink; pale pinkish foam, good head, lacy. Horrible artificial fruit-like smell. Another toilet deodorant. Terrible aroma gets its prolonging in the taste. It is however less unpleasant, thanks to a certain tartness – and a general ‘fade’ flavour. It remains awful, however. Mouthfeel is the best; tartness, dry-out effect, OK. Once the toilet cleaner aroma is gone, the beer becomes tolerable. I will never buy this again – compared to this the Lindemans cassis is a treat.

Very fruity, is opverpowering with currant flavour but still very enjoyable. Beautiful head and lacing with great wine like aroma. If you like'm fruity and sweet then this one will hit the spot.

Clear dark red with a strong aroma. Light-bodied and smooth with lots of black currant flavor. Some sourness present, but not overpowering. Simple, but interesting enough to try.

Yikes, it's like a beer made exclusively from fruit. I'm not sure there is another taste in it. A little too over the top for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bronze with a slightly purple hue. Pinkish head. Fruity aroma--black currant I would suppose. Very sweet but slightly tart. Like other Mort Subite fruit lambics, it's simple but I still like it. I guess I'm the lowest common denominator of lambic drinkers.

23/4: Massive berry aroma. Cloudy pink-red w/ huge sudsy pink head. Nice initial sweet fruit flavour followed by sour aftertaste with a hint of berries present. Lovely mouthfeel for the appearance of it, very smooth.

Small pink head, red body, quite reasonable aroma of currents. Body is quite thin and a sweet/sour cough mixture flavour. Fairly dry finish.
