In the 330 mL bottle. Pours a dark blood purple with a magenta-pink head. Has a wild spearmint aroma at first! Grape then emerges as it warms. At first, this is very tart, then it gets acid-like and salty. The palate is harsh, leaving a lingering sourness in the mouth. The best way to describe this is like dissolving aspirin in your mouth. A very acidic beer. Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2006
(Bottle 25 cl) Pours a clear dark red with a strong, dark red head. Thick aroma of black currants. Very light body with sourish black currant flavour with almost no underlying sweetness. 240706 Emil (6065) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 25, 2006

Clear dark red coloured with a pink head.
Aroma of black currants and berries.
Light acidic flavour of black currants and berries. frankenkitty (2012) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUN 30, 2006
A deep, reddish/pink body beneath a holding, raspberry-hued head... like the frothy skin on top of hot Jell-O. Aroma finds peppery currant with sawdust and caraway. Flavor accomplishes its mission as a nice representation of black currant, tart and fruity, while it finishes dry yet lingers long.

Taster from bottle, at the <a href=/events-detail.asp?eventID=3891>Balmoral Brewhaha. Looks like currants are about the heaviest fruit flavor you can put into a beer. Big currant flavor and nose here, folks, that can’t help but overwhelm any beer base, but I guess that’s expected. Very sweet, too; I couldn’t locate much tartness. Kind of runs toward the flavor of those IHOP pancake syrups. If you know that going in and looking for it, this would be fine. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2006
I’m liking this premium series. This pours out a rich, deep purple with an almost lilac creamy head. Black current greets the nose with a sweetness that carries into the flavor. Nice carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel. Refreshing. On the sweet side but I like it like that. Not a traditional fruit lambic but that my be in its favor for some. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2006
(Bottle, best before 08-2007) Pours a deep purple body with a large violet head. Aroma of tart black currants. Flavor has a sugary, tartiness of black currants with a dry finish. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 19, 2006
Deep purple with a reddish/violet head. Aroma is all tart grape. Mouth watering before you even take a sip. Flavor is overly tart, mouth puckering, with a huge sugary sweetness to it. Silky smooth mouthfell. Drinkable I guess, but nothing special. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2006
I’m sure this isn’t a style favored by the purists, but this new addition to the Premium line is fairly tasty and refreshing. Beautiful pour, a deep purple with a creamy violet head. The aroma is full of black current, quite fresh, and little else. The flavor adds a light tartness, enough to bring about some salivation. Nice sweet/sour finish.
