skaughty (652) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 18, 2004
Much was over the top on this one, including Huge candied (almost artificial) currant aroma. Bottled opened like an agitated cola - spewing froth all over the place. The head, carbonation and lacing were amazing. The flavor was sweet, with a puckering, tart aftertaste - but not bad. Warming only pronounced the tartness. I was seeking something between the sweetness of a Lindeman's and the sourness of Cantillon, and for that - this was a success - faults and all. I can see how the reviews could be mixed on this one.

IslandHaole (1245) - Misawa, JAPAN - MAR 4, 2004
A clear, orange amber pink color with a small foamy pink/beige head. Initially a very sweet, candy-like aroma but some of the tart scent is noticeable as well. Sweet berry flavor up front with a woody tart middle the follow is slightly bitter with a stronger tartness. A nice middle ground Lambic somewhere between the Sweet Belle-Vue and the potent over the top tart Cantillon.

Boutip (6130) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 9, 2004
Bottle Pourred a deep purple/amber brew with a nice bubbly head. Great carbonation with good head retention. Aroma of cassis is very present. Taste is very sweet and cassis are easily identifiable. Very easy to drink, a bit likes juice. Acidic and tarter aftertaste no very much present for a lambic. Overall, a very enjoyable beer but probably not as complex as some other fruit lambic can be.

JagerQueen (123) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 26, 2004
Sharp, sour aroma-similar taste. Pours an amber brown, contains some sweet flavors, but mostly the lambic was tart and slightly sour. Better when warmed, but overall, there are better lambics.

biermonk (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2004
Reddish amber in color with ahuge frothy head. Aroma is very heavy with the currant. Flavor is sweet almost like a fruit soda. MOuthfeel is more tingly than any beer I've ever drank almost like champagne. Finish is very tangy maybe borderline sour. Very new to the style. Not bad.

This is my first ever blackcurrant beer! I do like this beer even though it is very artificial in both aroma and flavor.
It has a reddish amber colored body with a frothy head. I can't say if the aroma is blackcurrant, because as said it is very artificial fruity. Like chewing gum. The flavor is just as artificial and I wonder if they used real berries in this beer at all....?
Not much of a beer, but drinkable.

Reddish amber,huge light pink head.Great blackcurrent nose.Slightly vinegary huge fruity flavor that seems both sweet and tart at different times lingers on the palate.

Red color; pink head. Cassis candies aroma. Dryer, more sour, less sweet (therefore less cloying) than the Lindemans'.

My favourite fruit pastille (jelly lolly) is the blackcurrant. Well it is clear that they brewed this by opening about 50 packets of these things into the mash. Needless to say the blackcurrant aroma is huge as is the colour through its reddish purple hue. The head is firm rocky and long lasting with the subsequent flavour being sharp and sweet at the same time, a clean and crisp greeting of the palate. The touch of lambic sourness balances well with the sweetness, even the burp is good. The bitterness is low but is not a negative factor. I am pleased to see this will also ward off a cold with its L-ascorbique acid content.
