2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nothing too special about this except the wacky appearance... I’ve had blackcurrant lambics before, never a regular beer. I’d take the former, really, there wasn’t much beer flavour here, even the Unibroue yeast character was surprisingly muted. Carbonation was quite high. Better than the pomme, and not too sweet. Good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pink-orange with a pinkish white head. The aroma is wheaty with some coriander and lemongrass. The taste has an up-front cidery acidity, which fades to a spiced, wheaty and yeasty finish with minimal hops. Interesting fruit beer but not going out of the way to be intense or unique.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle into tulip glass, best by 6/22/2013. Pours hazy reddish orange color with a fluffy 2-3 finger white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Some nice foamy lacing clings to the glass as well. Aromas of big black currant grapes, coriander, orange zest, pepper, floral, wheat, and yeast spiciness. Damn nice authentic smelling fruity aromas, with good strength and balance. Taste of orange zest, coriander, black currant, pepper, herbal, wheat, and yeast spiciness. Pretty dry on the finish; with a bit of light lingering notes of lightly tart currants, orange zest, and yeast spiciness on the finish for a short bit. Nice flavor balance and complexity; though it comes out as being weak, the aromas had me thinking it would have a bigger amount of fruit flavor. No cloying sweetness or unpleasant flavors at all. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a foamy, crisp, and smooth mouthfeel that is good. No alcohol warming noticed at all as expected for 5.5%. Extremely refreshing and easy to drink. Overall this is a very good fruit flavored white ale. Very crisp and refreshing; with a good amount of fruit flavor and complexity. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle. Pours a cloudy rosy beige colour with an off-white head. Aroma is big on hibiscus tea, blackberry, black currant, dry apple cider, and Belgian yeast. The taste is bitter black currant notes from start to finish, cider notes everything associated with Belgian whites, with sour apple, and bitter fruit in the finish. I enjoyed this a lot. To my memory, the best fruit beer I’ve tried.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at E9. Cloudy orange pour with a short, pinkish-white head with poor retention and leaving minimal lace. Nose is lightly fruity. Light body with moderate, fine, carbonation. Black currants, very light tartness, melon, faint citrus hops – not much going on overall, but quite refreshing in the unsweetened juice sense. Finish is short, dry and lightly fruity. There are better fruit ales out there, including several black currant ones.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a rose color with a huge pink head, fades quickly and leaves no lacing. Aroma is very fruity, smells of berries, and slight belgian spice. Taste is berries and the belgian yeast spice is much stronger in the taste as it warms up, good belgian fruit beer

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Botle. Pours a deep amber with a nice head. Aroma is subtle black currant, dark cherry, and bread. Flavor is watery currant and light/dark cherry. Watery mouthfeel. Too subtle and watery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Old review. Bottle, pours a murky, vibrant pink orange shade with spotty lacing and medium white bubbly head, Aromas of sour apple brett, hibiscus, curants, coriander, and more funky notes. Taste is like a rose d hibiscus mixed with a witbier saison. Other notes of raspberry, pepper, and other sweet tropical fruits. Body was a liitle light. Overhyped.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2012 Bouteille 750ml. Couleur rosée, tirant sur le mauve, mousse blanche persistante laissant une belle dentelle. Arôme de mûre, de cassis. Goût fruité, principalement de cassis. Une bonne bière aux fruits, mais pas la meilleure d?Unibroue.
