330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 6.3%. Hazy deep red to purple colour, small pink head. Intense aroma of blackcurrants and oak, hints of yoghurt. Intensely sour flavour of lemons and blackcurrants, hints of oak. Not a beer for me.

Huge, ultra dense & fine rosy head over deep red, veiled beer; end of bottle dense deposit. Powerful berries' nose, fruitacids and various vinous and woody touches. Blackcurrant dessert pie. Really sour fruity flavour, real fruit, lactic acid, fruitacids. Ultra dry and vinous character. Acidthinning, mild acidburn, very well carbonated and utterly tart. Vinous. more than cassis. Severe, and in fact lacking a tad of complexity in its class.

Bottle, 7/June/2018, from Goblet. Murky red body, pinkish head. Misty red body, pinkish thick white head. Gluey, funky blackcurrant aroma, not entirely pleasing to my tastes really at times, but with a little bit of breathing it got highly pleasant, cleaner fruitiness, soft funk, dry maltiness, honey. Lean taste, sweetish, okay, subdued but tasty blackcurrant profile, tart, salty. Very good stuff, very good indeed.

0.33 l bottle from Goblet Beer Store, shared with Marko and Ogi. Hazy dark amber to ruby red, small pinkish head. Fruity, dark berries, black currant or blueberry juice, a touch of oak. Moderate sourness. Fresh black currant, jam. Also prunes and blueberry. Wonderful although one-sided fruit profile. Nice sour berries in the finish. Drinkable. Soft, juicy, smooth.

Bottle shared at Lucky Bamboo share. Pours a clearish ruby with a small off-white to pink head that dissipates. Lovely blackcurrant forward nose with oak, wet hay, must and gooseberry notes as it warms. More oak on the palate with light vanilla, dried blackcurrant. Good tartness, dry again and light bodied. Lingering mineral, hay and fruit on the finish.

Many thanks! Sampled 330 ml. bottle. Bright blackcurrant juice, small pink head. Fizzy blackcurrant lemonade acidic, puckering lemon, quite simple but fair.
