Sehr interessantes Lambic, das ebenso speziell ist. Sauer ist es natuerlich, aber auch mit leichten suessen Momenten. Vom Aroma her himbeerig, aber Kohl spielt ebenfalls eine grosse Rolle. Klasse Bier, das jedoch wirklich sehr heftig daherkommt und sichelich nicht jedermanns Geschmack trifft.

Pours out of the bottle in a deep ruby-brown colour with smooth body and low head. Wonderful aroma of fresh but green raspberries and leaves. Taste of raspberries, strawberries, freshness, acid, raspberry vinegar and wine. Sour finish with a big raspberry field in mind. Wonderful lambic.

A- pours raspberry red with little to no head
S- huge raspberry notes, wheat, strawberry. This beer is incredibly strong smelling upon opening and you don’t even have to put your nose in the glass to get a bouquet of raspberry.
T- wheat, raspberry, slightly grassy, very muted. Huge let down from the nose.
M- medium bodied with light carbonation.
D- a decent beer with an amazing nose. I enjoyed it.

Bottles - pours a murky red. Lots of raspberries in the nose with some barnyard funk. Very tart, nice sour raspberry taste plus some good old funk. Awesome beer!!!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from bottle @ Zeebra II. Pous hazy reddish with a ring white head. Aroma has quite some barnyard and funk, quite typical 3F aroma, with some faint raspberry sweetness and fruitiness. Taste has a nice balance between the sourness and the fruitiness, although the raspberry is not very prominent. Over medium sour with a dry finish. Medium body and carbo. Quite nice, but probably better when it was fresh.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2014 Bottled @ Zeebra #2, tick. Hazy pink color, short head. Aroma of very fruity raspberry, tart. Quite sour in taste, quite fruity. Lovely framboos, but the difference with some other Frambozenlambics, like for example de Cam, is not as big as the difference in rating does expect. Very nice stuff, but a bit overhyped imo.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy, pinkish red beer with a small pink head. Sour and fruity raspberry aroma with a little hint of yeast/dairy. Horseblanket and regular geuze- aroma’s. Taste is actually the same: sharp sour, fruity, dry. One of the most overhyped beers if you ask me, not worth the high prices they ask for it.

Sampled a 2010 bottle @ Zeebra 2014. After several people highly recommended it, I shared a sample with Thijs (cause the beer was very expensive). Since I don’t like sours this beer was a disappointment. It was the sourest beer I ever drank (more sour than for example hommage and ypres). The fluid yoghurt taste is very dominating, really grabs you. Disliked it.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an orange red slightly unclear beer with a good white head. Smells lots of framboise, medium sour, limonade. Tastes framboise, medium sour, bit tarted with a nice little sweet finish. Average carbo, thin body and a watery texture.
