375ml bottle. Pours a deep reddish-purple, with a large crimson-tinged head, which lasts reasonably well and leaves decent lacing. The aroma is mainly sweet blackcurrant, with some sour notes lurking in the background. To be honest, it smells mainly of Ribena. The taste is, thankfully, much more pleasant. It is quite strongly sour to begin, with some faint woody notes leading into sweetly fruity blackcurrant set against a nicely sour background. The fruitiness of the blackcurrant comes through more strongly in the finish, and there is a pleasantly sour aftertaste. I find fruit lambics can be a bit hit and miss; it really depends on the fruit. Blackcurrant seems to work pretty well with the sourness of the beer itself, although it does rather dominate the aroma. All in all, however, this is a very pleasant beer.

Wow. Den hidtil bedste frugt-lambic jeg har smagt. Kan anbefales, Fin frugtsmag, men noget sdlig.

Rubinowe, piękna malinowa pianka. Zapach owocowy i dzikich drożdży, nie ma jakichś ostrych nut ketonowych. W smaku pyszne, jednocześnie słodziutkie i owocowo kwaskowate. Bardzo wyraźnie czuć świeże owoce porzeczki, orzeźwiająco cierpkie. Bardzo dobre

Red/purple with pink bubbles. Aroma is cassis/gooseberries, slight brown sugar, little champagne. Taste is sugary sweet with lots of fruity sourness and cassis bitterness, some fizzy tablet. Well rounded. Full bodied, easily drinkable. Bubbly. Girlfriend approves.

Mild sourness, but strong fruitiness. So very good for fruit beer, but not a sour i'll keep buying over and over again. The black currants do complement the beer well though. Sobeys bottle.

From Alcampo. In Teku glass. After dinner. 25cl. Pleasant, the fruit doesnt feel artificial nor excessive and the sourness is just the adequate. However, in the long it ends up tiring a bit

Poncjusz (47) - POLAND - JAN 26, 2017
Aromat czarnej porzeczki, czerwonych owocw, liści porzeczki, domowego soku porzeczkowego i to coś co przypomina ziemistość. Kolor rubinowy, soku z wiśni. Piana tworzy się wysoka, opada, ale zostaje dość gruby kożuch i porządnie oblepia szkło. W smaku kwaśność owocw, porzeczkowa, winny posmak, słodycz syropowa, ale tylko zaznacza obecność. Dominacja owocw lepsza niż w pozostałych lambikach tego browaru. Wysycenie średnie świetnie podkreśla owoce, pijalność średnia poprzez zbyt nachalną kwaśność, delikatna cierpkość.

Restrained tart aroma in a cloudy red brown pour. Taste is tart to start with a fruity sweetness kicking in later to balance. Not really my style - but a great example of it regardless.

Demens (356) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 15, 2017
0,25l bottle. Hazy purple colour with small quickly disappearing pink head. Aroma: Cassis jam. The first fruit lambic that has a real fruity aroma, not just bubblegum. Taste: Tarty fruity start with a stronger acidic sour mouthfeel. Has a light bitter tone too. Very fruity and pleasent but the other lambics had more from the typical lambic caracters but they had a more artifical fruity caracter. This tastes quite real. Light/medium body with medium carbonation. Medium lasting sour/dry finish. Very good in the fruity tone but lacks the lambic/beer style.
