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.

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.

Bottle 330 ml split 2 ways. Beautiful purple pour. Very fruity lambic. Nice grape skin, wine and leafy aroma. Taste is definitly tart (citric) with some blueberry jams that adds some depth, light lactic feel also. Another good lambic by Mikkeller. Very close to the top examples.
