MelvinKalksma (1536) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 16, 2017

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, blackcurrant, tart, horse blanket and brettanomyces.

Appearance:
Opaque dark red/purple beer with a slight beige/pink head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, wood and blackcurrant; ends slightly dry and sour with tart, horse blanket and brettanomyces.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is slightly too much of the sour aspects, totally missing the sweet start of the taste. Perfect appearance and a great palate as well.

375 ml bottle. Pours a garnet red with very light white head. Dusty rich aromas of red berries and currants with just a touch of funk. Rich flavors of tart berries, currants, salal and wheat. Beauty.

37.5 cl bottle, served in wine glass. Vintage: 2016. Poured hazy bordeaux red with no head at all and very little carbonation. Aroma: black currants, tart, oak, lambic, leaves in autumn wood, menure, barnyard. Taste: Oooooh this is so friggin good! Black currants, sour, dry, oak barrel, barnyard, cherry, vinous tannine, vinegar, citrus, leather, wet earth. Very sour with dry tannine mouthfeel. The heavy sourness really makes me salivate between the sips and longing for more. The sweetness is very subtile from the currants and also tastes very natural. Very complex and nuanced, a medium body with a very long sour, dry bittersweet finish. It almost contains no carbonation at all but that doesn’t bother me one bit, this Lambic stands on it’s own and has more to do with wine than with beer in my opinion. This is just absolutely divine nectar and really a textbook example of how to blend fruit with Lambic...delicious!

Bottle from back of my cellar, enjoyed at Aaserød as my rating # 8888. Pours murky deep red/amber with only a thin layer of bubbles. Aroma of acidic berries, blackcurrant , oak, nice and inviting. Taste is vinous, lots of oak here, acidic black currents, dry berry finish, low carbonated, weak astringent at the utter finish, me like.

Labelled as Cassis, not Experimental Cassis. Deep purple. No head. Very little carbonation. Loads of blackcurrant with a tart, dry finish. Drinks like a juice with a bit of alcohol added, really.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2017 Arôme acide de lambic. Pas de mousse.Bière plate. Acidité adoucie par le cassis. Ou goute bien le fruit. Légèrement boisé. Dommage qu?elle soit plate

Lambic aroma. No head. No carbonation, yes you ain’t gonna find a single bubble on there. Aftertaste of sweet fruits. Like some unusual ice cream flavors at the parlour.

At first I was disappoint, as the beer is really really flat and I had trouble to find any trace of cassis. After a few sip, the typical acidic taste of lambic beer gives his place to the fruity part, which is nice. Interesting but would be really nicer with bubbles

Clear purple appearance with no head. Aroma is a bit soapy and has some paint. Similar flavour.
