Beer Review 51 // Ribes Nigrum (Cassis) by Auval

Wow we hit 51 beer reviews. For this beer I am posting something special. This brewery has always excited me but is hard to come across. I lucky during the first half of the year and was lucky to try a few. This one really stood out for me so let's get going!


Name: Ribes Nigrum Cassis
Style: Sour
Brewery: Auval
Country: Canada, Val'dEspoir, Quebec.
Price: Unknown had at a bottle share.
ABV: 5.7%

Commercial Fluff:
"Sour beer with fruits. Assembly of mixed fermentation beers refermented on the fruit (blackcurrant)"

Own Opinion

Sight: Pours a beautiful purple red, topped up a foam of pink clouds. Looks so good it is crazy.
Aroma: Fruity, blackcurrant, cherries, plums, basically tart fruit. 
Taste: Tart all the fruits from the aroma shine through in the taste. A mouth watering funk and sourness makes you want more.
Would I buy it again? Yes. I was lucky and didn't pay for this one, but if I can find it again I will buy without at thought.

Final thoughts: Extremely drinkable, wish I didn't have to share it. Mouth watered in a good way, the fruit was present but not over powering and it was a great introduction to what this brewery is all about! Loved it.

As always thanks for reading. Drop me message below.
