3.6/5  rDev -10.2%

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep red. Small off white head. Medium collar.

Smell - Light currant. Wood. Yogurty.

Taste - Berry fruit that builds into a very distinct black currant flavor. Like a black currant jam without the sweetness. Very woody. Less yogurt than the nose.

Mouthfeel - Dry and woody. Moderate sourness. Well carbonated.

Overall - The woodiness is intense. The currant flavor is pretty nice, but not enough to truly elevate the beer.

Almost purple in color with a fair amount of turbidity. Strong cassis and berry aromas. Grass, a touch of oak, and only a mild mustiness. Has a very strong grape juice aroma, too. The flavor is lightly sweet with a fairly restrained tartness. Heavy on the fruit flavors. Lots of cassis, blackberry, and red grapes. Some oak, grass, and must, but they seem to be covered by the fruit.

Pours a hazy, dark purple color. 1/3 inch head of an off-purple color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of currant, sweet malt, sugar, hint of sour, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of a Lambic - Fruit. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. There is also a noticeable tartness. Tastes of currant, sweet malt, sugar, sugar, hint of floral, and a hint of alcohol. Overall, good appearance, good body, and good blend. Not too sweet, but also not overly dry or tart. A good lambic - fruit.
