thewolf (12594) - Kolding, DENMARK - FEB 12, 2008
Bottle, bought @ SuperBest, Christiansfeld. [3,5 %]
Pours a deep mahogany red with a very nice creamy pink head. Good lacing.Powerful fruity fresh black currants aroma - mostly sweet, but with a light tartness behind it. Flavour is very powerful as well - lots of fruit and agreat dryness to the mouthfeel. The tartness is there, but still very much subdued.

Petrucci914 (910) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 10, 2008
Pours a elegant plum purple color with a frothy pink head that leaves lines of sticky lacing. Aroma is really sweet and tart with the black currants, with just a little bit of funkiness cutting through. Taste is very tart and fruity, with the currants making a strong presence. The palate has a little bit of funk and oak to it. Really enjoyable but I think some of the sweetness could be cut back. It reminds me of NG Raspberry Tart.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 From the bottle, this is tasty and enjoyable, but too sweet and fruit dominated for me, with too little complexity. It is a deep, deep purplish red with a big, thick, pink head that lasts forever and leaves pretty good lacing. The aroma is heavy blackcurrant (esp. creme de cassis) with a hint of yeast and mustiness. The taste is predominantly blackcurrant, sweet at first with a more tart, light finish. Overall, though, it is rather one-note and dominated too much by the fruit. I taste almost nothing of the lambic itself and even the tartness in the end is just a fruity tartness as far as I can tell, wihtout a sour, yeasty quality. Maybe it’s just the blackcurrants since blackcurrants are very strongly flavoured. It is good to drink after a meal or something like that but it’s lacking.

12-oz. Corked, capped, and foiled. Pours deep purply black with a thick and fizzy dark pink (mauve?) head that settles quickly to sudsy filmy and sticky lace. Dusty, dark fruity nose--either you know what black currants smell like or you don’t. That’s what this one smells like, along with some dust. Medium, sticky, surprisingly not-so-very-fizzy body. Sticky, bold, freshly fruity mid-palate with a long puckery tart finish. It’s a heck of a long way from the tartness of the big sours, but it’s got that fruit tartiness to it.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - JAN 21, 2008
Pours blackish royal purple w/ a full, creamy froth. The color of the head is a beautiful pinkish puple color and it just sits there stubborn as all getout. Brisk yet mild aromas of sweet, waxy cassis fruit. Full nectar w/ ample residual effers creating a fiberousy soft and expansive texture. This brew is luscious and chewy. When I poured it I knew I was in for a treat. Big, sweet and meaty cassis fruit all balanced by a fresh, briskly tart acidity. This brew is a mouthfull of gobstopper decadence but has a strong oak presence. The finish is long w/ lingering sweetarts and oak.

3.2
kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Red (Pinot) with a large frothy pink head. Aroma is overwhelmingly black currant. The flavor is very sweet with a good acidity and lots of black currant, leading to a dry woody note. Lively carbonation, light bodied.

3.6
Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2008
Dark purple of color with a purple head. An aroma of currants and sour notes. A flavor with currants, sour and dry notes.

3.5
douglas88 (9180) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Bottle. Pours a dark purple with a thin light purple head. The aroma is great; strong sweet currants. The body is sort of thin, but with some nice sourness. Overall, the flavor is dominated by the sour blackcurrant. Decent as an dessert, not a beer. But good anyway.

3.7
timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Strong smells and flavor of black currants (almost like a full flavored, bitter grape). Like all the lambics, this one rates high because of the aroma and flavor ratings.

3.5
decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Very grapish aroma. Pours a deep hazed amber with a thin looking white head. Flavor is sour fruitiness. Not the most complex flavor but very good. Reminds me a bit of welch’s grape juice with a twang. Mouth feel is ok but a bit thin. Another beer I never thought I would like but I do. Man I wish they could make a beer like this that was 8% abv.
