3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 25 cl) Beautiful deep red colour with a small head. Soft fruity flavours of the black currant, less sharp and less tart than most cassis lambics. This somehow reminds me of a well matured Rioja. Quite interesting. 040200

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of blackberries, quite artificial, but it is somewhat dusty or woody. Hazy, dark red-purple coloured with a lasting, pink medium head. Taste is sweet, slightly sour. Very fruity (blackberries). Bit thin finish. Sticky palate. Nice freshness for a warm afternoon. But no complexness or so. One dimensional.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy red/brown/amber. Artificial blackcurrant nose. Lightly hoppy and flavour from blackcurrant, little more "lively"(some carbonation) than the aroma. The finish is quite short.
