tmoreau (4637) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Stemware sample at local beer seminar. Poured a cloudy, orange/amber, with an off white, foamy head, and clingy lacing. Aroma was tangy, dark fruit and black currants. Flavor was tart fruit etc. as the nose. Medium body with high carbonation. Seems like it would be a nice dessert pairing. jgb9348 (6482) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Nice amber coloured body with an orangish tint and a super-large off-white head. Aroma of black currants, malt, coriander seed, wheat and a ton of yeast. Medium-bodied; Sweet taste up front with some malt and black currant flavours roaming through. Aftertaste shows a sweet finish with the currant flavour roaming throughout. Overall, a decent beer - nothing horrible at all and some good flavours going through. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 06-January-2006. sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 30, 2008

On tap, pours amber with white head.
Aroma / taste, fruity (cassis), light hops and sugars. It does leave the light tart mouthfeel of the berry-cassis.
The cassis was really faint in taste, noticeable and made this brew a very enjoyable one. thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 21, 2008
Bottle purchased at Bir & Fud, Roma. The colour is glowing orange with a huge off-white head. Prunes aroma, but other dark fruit, especially prums, as well. Vinous. The taste is sweet and fruity, yet still very well-balanced with vinous flavours. Blends well with caramel maltiness. Some raisiny traits towards the finish. Well-carbonated. Enjoyable. yespr (47567) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - NOV 21, 2008

Bottle. [Tasting session @ Papsoe, 31-10-2008] Huge creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Muddy golden color. Aroma of dusty grain, yeast, light fruit. Over the palate came sour raisins, wheat like notes. Light bodied with an average carbonation. Light sweet and acidic flavor. Light sour fruity finish. slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle. Nose is sweet with light sour notes, light musk. Cloudy orange with huge white head, loads of carbonation and nice lacing. Flavor is sweet/sour, more grape and plum than current. The sour notes are in great compliment to the sweetness. This bottle might have spent a few years in a cellar, and is showing great balance. High carbonation but generally drinkable palate. scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 18, 2008
Tasting - Perfect Pour. Dark hazed gold, creamy white head. Soft aromas of sour berry and black currants throughout. Sweet fruity black currant flavors balance on hints of dried red grape and citrus. Light bodied with zesty carbonation. Decent, but nothing to write home about... blutt59 (6579) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2008
