A: Deep blood red with a light pink head.

S: Pungent/Ripe blackberry/dark fruits on the nose.

T: Just incredible sweet-tart black currant. Tangy with a dry finish. More tart than sour, so I assume the Brett is still doing it's work on this one. Alcohol is completely hidden.

M: Drinks like a cherry cola or carbonated Kool-aid. Very drinkable.

O: I love anything with black currants and I wish we could get this stateside. Tart and sweet without being medicinal. The mouthfeel could be improved.

On-tap at Mikkeller & Friends in Copenhagen, served in a mini tulip glass. Thanks Kristoffer!

A- Pours a vibrant fuchsia color with a thin, pink head, recedes to a collar.

S- Smells very nice actually. Mild tartness in the aroma, focuses more heavily on very juicy, fresh aromas of blackcurrant.

T- Way more tart than it smells, has a great acidity, really spot-on. Blended with the tartness is a nice, subtle, only a bit sweet blackcurrant flavor.

M- Medium-bodied, smooth with good carbonation.

O- I really enjoyed this beer, they've got the tartness down really well and the fruit character is very nice.

Batch #3, 75 cl bottle.

The liquid is somewhat hazy, the colour red/wine red. The low white head sinks quickly into a thin lid.

The smell is dry with fine notes of mature red wine, black currant, and currant bush. Stong sour notes, some bitter herbs.

The taste is dry with lots of currant bush, black currants, and unsweetened black currant juice. Bitter herbs and growing tart notes reminding of malic acid. Hits of stable and horse. Light to medium body. The aftertaste is semi-sour with some sweetness. Hints of metallic bitterness. The long finish got notes of black currants and acid drops. The sour flavours sticks to my teeth.

The carbonation is medium to strong, the long lasting bubbles are large and fresh (but not sharp). The liquid is quite light.

This beer is exactly as I had expected it: Brilliant.

A beautiful beer to pour. Gorgeous red liquid coming out of the bottle fills the glass with a deep red body and a fluffy pink head sprouts up that slowly falls to a thin covering that hangs around.

Huge fruit nose. The black currants are poppin with some blackberry and raspberry as well. A little leafy and herbal.

Just like the aroma it is big on fruit with currant and berry flavors. A large herbal presence as well which is very interesting. On the sour side.

Lively in the mouth and fairly dry. Body is on the lighter side.

Really impressed by this.
