Bottle @ home. Pours purple. Aroma is sweet and slighly citrus-tart with loads of artifical sugar and black currant.. taste is dry, slighly sour, more so in the finish with loads of black currant, some lemon and sweet candy. Lemon juice in the finish. Like a tart and sweet soda. Cunningham (8403) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 12, 2016
Deep Puprle but no smoke on the water. Maybe the farmer’s daughter picked up all these lovely blackcurrant that were used in this lovely beer. It is blackcurrant all the way. One dimensional in a way. But I really like these fruit Berliner weisse. Smooth and powerful flavor and aroma. Blackcurrant as I already have said. Pleasant mild acidity balances the sweetness good in the beer. Fine body and a fine carbonation. Recommendable stuff.VDuquerroux (1865) - Airvault, Haut-Poitou, FRANCE - NOV 7, 2015

Opaque dark purple beer, good mauve head! Funky! Big sweet fruity nose. Palate is light and mildly dry, decent fine carbonation. Big candy fruits - sweet blackcurrant and blackberry, little raspberry. Light and fairly thin dry finish. A touch dry but good fun.
A murky dark lilac coloured beer with a frothy pinkish head. A strong fruity aroma, 'Ribena' blackcurrant smell dominates. Dry and fizzy mouthfeel. A tart blackcurrant flavour, with a cloying cordial and jammy like syrupyness towards the end. Served chilled over ice whilst at a barbecue in the summer, nice and refreshing, any other time I think the cloying aspect would be too much.

Looks unhealthy - blue-purple with white head. Aroma is blackcurrant syrup, taste as well, like a lemonade, very refreshing. Not even that sweet. Solid. edsspoon (905) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Bottle - muddy and very bright purple, violet/beige head. Aroma of blackcurrant, like Ribena, and blackberries. Taste is very sweet, cough medicine, followed by blackcurrant and light sourness. Light body, highish carbonation. Idiosynkrasie (7974) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2015
330ml bottle. Hazy purple colour with average, frothy, rapidly diminishing, lilac head. Nice, full-blown blackcurrant aroma, fruit and shrub flavours, no hints of artificiality in the first instance. Taste is in stark contrast, very sweet, artificial, citric acid tartness, wine gum-like blackcurrant notes, prickling carbonation, sherbet character overall. Could be really nice without that sugar overdose.
