Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2004
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.

omhper (19936) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2004 Bottled. Dark amber, hazy. Interesting black currant sorbet aroma. Very sweet and one-dimensional. Perhaps a vague hint of acidity.

Jeppe (2631) - Ølbutikken, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2004
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!

larsniclas (5725) - Billdal, SWEDEN - FEB 15, 2004
Bottled. Ruby red and a bit hazy. Distinct cassis-aroma and flavour. Rather sweet, though fresh.

Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2004
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.

DanielBrown (3911) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2004
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.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 17, 2003
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.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2003
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.

Nuffield (3714) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2003
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.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JUN 10, 2003
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.
