4.05/5 rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
750 cc corked bottle, nice label
Appearance: Holy head! Careful pour and it was still 3/4 foam and 1/4 liquid. Golden, less cloudy than I anticipated.
Smell: I am not a big fruit beer fan, but I really enjoyed this smell. It was spicy, lots of pepper in the nose with some yeast and a definitely fruity, but not sweet, smell.
Taste: Again, I am surprised. This really tastes quite good. Slightly tart. The currants work well in this brew. A bit light/watery, but not in a negative way. Finishes with a very pleasant, dry aftertaste. Not too syrupy and not overly fruity.
Mouthfeel: Watery, but again, this really isn't a negative. It actually fits this beer. Clean.
Drinkability: I think this would be a fantastic lawn mowing beer. So refreshing and at 5.5%, not too alcoholic.
Notes: I was very surprised. This may be my favorite fruit beer to date. Very drinkable and a real treat. A great warm weather beer that I'll be trying again. Not your typical Unibroue, but I'm glad that a great brewery is exploring new horizons.
Serving type: cask

A: Pink. A very unique color that I've never seen in a beer before. Tiny white head on the top throughout.
S: Berries! Blueberries, boysenberries, raspberries, blackberries. Smells like a berry lollipop.
T: Sweet berries on the front end, finishing out with some lemon peel and coriander. Finishes very sour.
M: Super bubbly. Champagne type bubbles.
O: A very unique beer, very fruity and unique. Will seek out again.

3.53/5 rDev -4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: It has a nice hazy deep golden/orange color to it with some sediment floating around. It has a nice light pink head that dies down moderately fast and leaves next to no lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of dark fruit (raspberries, black currant) yeast, citrus and wheat malts.
Taste: Like the aromas, it has some dark fruit (raspberries, black currant, cherries) witch are somewhat tart, citrus, faint yeast and some wheat malts.
Mouthfeel: It has a medium carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with decent flavors and aromas.
