4.05/5  rDev +10.1%
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.
