Growler. Pours gold with an off white head. Smells of currants, some funk, lots of tartness, some oaky hints. Tastes funky and tarte with some residual sugary hints and some currants show up as this warms. Lots of oakiness on the finish. Nice!

Oak aromas, tanins and a little vanilla, some grapes and fruits, very wine like aromas. Pours cloudy purple, to very dark red. Mild tartness, a lot of oak, fruity, grapes and maybe raspberries in the flavor. It reminds me more of a flemish sour than a lambic, it lacks in good lacto acidic flavor and sourness. Still a good attempt and i did enjoy it.

Poured a very hazy berry color with a brown tint and small pink head. Very big yeasty funk aroma with notes of leather and barnyard. Some berry fruitiness mixed in. The flavor had a pleasant tartness, not too acidic. The Cassis part is a little light. Some sweetness. The flavor is light on the funk part. Fruity with a semi-dry finish.

On tap at the brewpub, July 2006. Darker pink colour. Really fine, funky aroma. Tart and sharp, with plenty of juicy fruit showing. One of the most authentic-tasting US fruit lambics I’ve tried. Very nicely done.

Hand-bottled sample courtesy of JHop: Pours a murky dark ruby with a lightly-lacing pinkish head. Complex, mildly funky, bretty aroma aroma has s good black currant presence. Body is a little thin, but has a fairly good balance between malty sweetness and tart fruitiness. An enjoyable and unique beer.
