Nice black currant flavor, light tannins, hops. Amber brown clear with off-white lacing head. Medium watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with good currant flavor, light hops. Sugary. Finish is chalky fruity. After is nice currant flavor. Decent cassis, but not spectacular.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2004 Bottled. Dark amber, hazy. Interesting black currant sorbet aroma. Very sweet and one-dimensional. Perhaps a vague hint of acidity.

Foamy though fast disappearing head on a amber orange body. Sour and woody in the aroma with some berries but not a lot. Flavor is quite dry and tart (more than expectet...) with obvious notes of old wood and blueberries. Foamy mouthfull. Good, but does taste a little old!

Ruby red and a bit hazy.
Distinct cassis-aroma and flavour.
Rather sweet, though fresh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2004 A ruby red beer with a beutiful lasting pink head. The aroma is sweet fruity with strong notes of cherries. The flavor is slightly sour, but also sweet, with strong cherry notes, and it has a woody finish. A great flavor and the best cassis I've ever had, since it is not too sweet and has a fuller flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, at The Anhor, Birmingham. Odd brownish colour. Smells like fruit pastilles. Not an immediate blackcurrant taste, some tartness and general fruit flavour - giving way to a beery aftertaste. Initially this is almost meaty, subsiding into crisp fruit, almost heading towards Gueuze territory, but enough sweetness to differentiate. OK, but not outstanding fruit beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bit dusty cassis aroma. Hazy, red color, small pink head, nice lace. Sour, tart, oak, fruity, cassis. Dusty dry very cassis finish. Actually the first Gueuze Cassis I liked.

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2004 A refreshing summer beer. The cassis flavour and aroma seems slightly natural and nice and goes well together with the slight lambic sourness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice, distinctive flavor of cassis (my old boss introduced me to creme de cassis, put into the bottom of a wine glass before adding white wine, for a nice apertif). The first hit was sour, but after that it mellowed and carried through a certain bubbly drinkability. Not stunning in its boldness or complexity but a decent fruit lambic that my wife would enjoy.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blackcurrent, lemonade aroma. Pours to a ruby colour with large off white head. Bitter, sweet blackcurrent taste with the acidity of a loire sauvignon blanc, which I like very much. A reasonable lambic, good wine like characteristics.
