Black currant ale. Their website actual call it an IPA. Beer 4 in the advent calendar. Pours cloudy amber orange, small head. Smells of bread, dried fruit and some sour notes. Taste is fruit forward, mild but tangy. The fruit is pleasant and not overwhelming. Transitions into a bitter finish, giving it the IPA quality. Found it well balanced and refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Mostly clear paler red copper, fading thin off-white foam. Malty currant berry aroma. Taste is quite malty and sweet, sometimes tart berry fruit, intermittent bitter herbal booziness. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2017
Red-amber color, small head. Some currant aroma, but also nice biscuity malts. Decent malt flavor, a bit biscuity, rather dry mouthfeel, with just a tad of currant, but also not as hoppy as an IPA.
Ok.

Oakes (17668) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 3, 2017
Amber. Bubbly head. The aroma has the black currant, but also has some muddy, malty stuff. Very malty taste with the fruit, light bitterness that clashes with the fruit sweetness. And the clash is pretty rough.

650mL bottle, pours a clear copper golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out notes of resinous hops and some subdued black currant fruitiness. Flavour brings out notes of residual sweetness, black currants, and light resinous hops. Not overly cohesive, but it’s drinkable. So-so... unremarkable.

Works pretty well and well balanced. Golden pour with good head and lacing. Only a light bit of berry like organic muffins. Some citrus from hops. Bitter and sour finish. Bottle pour at liquor store.

I am having the 2014 one, called "Black Currant India Pale Ale", but Yukon said it was basically the same beer, so I’ll put my review on this one. Pours ruby, small head. Aroma of hops and fruits. Almost tangy taste with initial hops, but the fruits start to come out of the flavour, into a bitter finish.

Rating #806 - December 4, 2013 - Beer 4 in the Craft BeerAdvent Calendar. 341ml bottle, 6.7% Pours a ruby colour with a near-absent white foam. Aroma is consistent with a North American style wheat ale, with notes of plum, raisin, and currant. Taste is quite sweet, with a fainty yeastwheat kick and a dominant currant/berry sweetness. This was actually quite enjoyable, the real fruit notes evoking what some of the bigger belgian ales create with yeast strains and esters.

1.2
MunBro (942) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2013
Aroma was malty, so was the taste. None of the currant flavor came through at all. Second worst advent beer so far behind that hurricane amber. Would not reccomend or drink again.
