Murky but vibrant melted plastic bucket red, soft lasting off white head. Nose is a bit disconnected for me - absolutely mesmerising lambic funk consistently whirling from many feet away but a little too much cheese corrupts this for me. Manifested Drei Font-age though, and zinging sticky Raspberry jam, but not enough to bury my face in.
Silky, predatory mouthfeel circling softly with before a massive tart pounce strung with out with steamed Balsamic Vingear. The sourness is incredible, expressive and cast iron without but there’s a rumbling sweetness like those foaming fizzy cherry cola bottles you ONLY get in Pick ’N Mix - unique and invigourating. Finish is slightly dry and dogged sheer clean linger whilst maintaining a resonating tartness - incredible balance. A memorable beer at any cost.

Bottle at Craig’s, thanks to fonefan. Pours hazy pink with a white head. Big sour raspberry nose, funky and jammy. Similar taste, lip-puckering sour, balancing out to a cleansing finish. Lovely.

Slightly hazy reddish brown colour, white head. Aroma of raspberries, syrup, almond, earth, over-ripe raspberries, pips, horse blanket. Very sour flavour, fruity, citric acid, acetic, barnyard funk. Bone dry, no residual sugars. Sour finish, raspberry, malt vinegar. Great beer, very funky.

Bottle shared by jackl. Pours lightly hazy ruby with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is band aid, medicinal, cherry, raspberry, wheat malt, stale hops and barnyard yeast notes. Flavor is bright berries, phenols, light hops and no bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Bottle poured into a wine stem. Enjoyed 12/7/2013. Pour is a deep magenta with a wispy pink head, which recedes to a rim. Some effervescence. Smell is bright, juicy raspberries, cobwebs and funky blue cheese. Quite jammy. Huge raspberry profile carries over to the taste, with an additional increase in the level of cheesy funk. Quite sour. A bit of lactic creaminess, and a touch of oak on the finish. Very drinkable, despite being more sour than I expected. A top notch lambic for sure, but I think some additional time will do this well.

Bottle @ Epic Sour Sourpuss Tasting, massive thnx to kermis for sharing this. 2011 vintage. Pours a murky pinkish beer with a small beige-ish, off white head on top. Aroma is a massive raspberry bomb together with some wild yeast, moldy red fruits and hay. Wow this is wild for sure! Flavor is medium sour, shining trough are the raspberries and fruityness of this beer. Very well balanced, complex and easy drinkable. This beer is the reasons why lambics are so well thought off. Very well crafted, very enjoyable, amazing beer!!
