3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Deep thick hazy purple color, thin creamy pink head. Aroma is blackcurrant, cardboard and soap. Flavor is fruity sweet with some sour berries, better than expected after smelling the aroma. Not really beer, but a quite refreshing and natural carbonated fruit drink. Sour fruity finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice beer. Creates a bit of a quandry tho - I like the beer both as a tart beer and yet, I also like the sweet tart beers. What to do. Anyway, this stands fine on its own. Pours with a nice light purple foamy frothy head and lots of lace. Color is an almost opaque purple. Aroma is currants, spice and yeastoids. good body and carbonation. Flavor is like aroma, tart and almost no sweetness. Finish is like flavor. Drinkable. Not a lot tho.

Full of tiny and HUGE particles throughout. Flavor is heavily sweet and moderately tart. Tastes of currant, out the wazoo! Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Sweet, slightly tart, black currant finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle into a pint glass. The aroma on this is oddly like barrel aged beers - wood, vanilla, cream, and tannins. The flavor is big fruit, lots of sour, and even some nice lambic funk. With some time one can even find some smoked meats in the mix and a bit of berry skins.

Pours very deep red with a mahogany/purple hue. Fine, fizzy, red-pink head. Tart aroma, good, clean black currants. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel.
