Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 8, 2005
Deep purple brown. Small faintly purple tinged soda like head, mostly dissipating. Sweet grainy, wine like nose. Light bodied, steady carbonation. Faintly sweet. Has an artificial-ness to it. Tastes like it is spiced as well. Im not terribly impressed by this, yet it is quite refreshing. Perhaps on ice with some bourbon and soda.

caesar (6816) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2005
Hazy orange color, short off-white head. Aroma of some malt and hop, very weak, some blackberry. Very watery taste, bit sweet. Slightly sticky palate. Very boring.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - APR 20, 2005
33cl bottle. Pours purple-ish with a slightly pink head that dies quickly, leaving nothing but its memory. Earthy aroma that reminds me of elderberries a bit, so that must be the blackcurrant...but the aroma is very light. Finishes dry with a bit of bitterness. Like their Saison, I just don’t find much here. Mellow currant flavor and a bit of malt. At least it isn’t sweet is about all I can say. Completely unimpressive overall.

jimhilt (2573) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - APR 15, 2005
Pours a two-finger bubbley white head that vanishes leaving no lace. Cloudy red color. Light-medium carbonation and light bodied. Blackcurrent nose. Starts and finishes with the blackcurrent flavor dominating, malt and hops are way in the background. Good fruit beer not very sweet. $2.80 for a 330ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

heemer77 (5317) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAR 21, 2005
Pours with a large, light pink head. The body is red with a little cloudiness. The aroma is light balsamic vinegar with some cherries and soap. The taste is lightly currant with some soapy undertones. Light taste of fruit that is not sweet at all. Needs more fruit or sweetness to balance the dryness.

JK (5944) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Very disappointing. Aroma is promising with berries and yeast. Light red beer with a pink head; looks like a fruit lambic. Flavor of a low quality Belgian ale. Almost no fruit flavor. Light palate. I like fruit beers, but this is a disappointment.

obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - DEC 25, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2004 Pink purple clear with lots of sparkle and thick pinkish head. Yeasty, wood, strong cassis, and sour lemon nose. Med weight w/light finish. Delicate flavors of vanilla, yeast, and light wood, with a light berry cassis quality. The nose promised more than the palate delivers, not enough acid in the end.

dolemike1 (1288) - Jeannette, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Cloudy, reddish brown, small off white head, light aroma of black currant, flavor is a subtle sweetness of fruit, light on the palate, not tart in my opinion. could use either more fruit or more tartness

IslandHaole (1229) - Misawa, JAPAN - NOV 19, 2004
A cloudy ruby color with a tiny white head. A tart fruit scent. A tart nose with some yeast and barnyard scents. A bit thin, not very complicated but an interesting tart fruit beer.

Des Geants have trapped a cloud and are slowly bottling it with the long forlorn soul of a black currant in each bottle...Not horrid, just horribly vapid...
