this beer is pro, and the whole series has been epic, but this one offers something unique. i think drier, more carbonated, and as funky as it is sour, compared to others. my one problem with it, if i can fairly call it that, is that it isnt necessarily distinctly red currant on the fruit side, if you said it was a mix of cherries and raspberries i might not know the difference. where the red grape was so positively red grapes, this one is more generic fruit, but thats not the point here i dont think. as a wild ale, its as good as they come, with a pinkinsh red tint to a rather clear brew. heady and white froth in one glass, almost still looking in the other, i dont all the way get it. tangy funk to the nose, fruity only a little, more a lacto oaky maturity and acidic sourness. so sour, but still bretty too, is this blended? how old is it? i need more information because i want to make beer this good. fuller bodied too than i remember the others being, which is a nice treat. sours never feel like this one the palate. overall this is incredible, the fruit is just unique enough to make this crazy memorable, and has a perfect mix of sweet and pucker. world class wild beer, nothing like this series, it deserves more attention.

Had on tap at Mikkeler Bar in Copenhagen today. Bright ruby red in the light. Strking,attractive appearance. Low head retention...characteristic, but nice lacing in the glass. Good funk with brettt and nice blend with dried fruit in the nose. Deep rich tart fruit. Understand it is currants but seemed to pick up some sour cherry as well. Spot on mouith puckering, but carbonation was soft and restrained on tap. Just a beautiful beautiful beer. Highly recommended.
