Bottle. 2015. Holy fucken sour. Nose is super acidic. Light lemon. Some citrus orange. Taste is initially obnoxiously sour with modest fruitiness. Fruitiness comes through more with more sips but sourness takes down. Still more sour than fruit. Although it is nearly still it is still good.

DrewFace (960) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Sour and tart, funky horse blanket-ish, lots of raspberry. Reddish color, mostly clear, minimal head. Sour raspberry, very tart, big acidic character, some of the berry character in the back of the finish but otherwise overtaken by the acidity. Yum

Mortlach (1469) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 6, 2015
750ml bottle (vintage 2014), bought @Les Vignerons (Rome) and shared @Brasserie 4:20. Pours ruby/copper with a minimal white head. Aroma of raspberry, mint, barnyard, strong vinegar notes. Flavour is medium sour and light sweet with vinegar notes burning in the throat. Medium body, medium carbonation. Rough.

ippopotamo36 (995) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 3, 2015
Bottle at a tasting in Rome 4:20 pub on 27/08/2015, shared by Mortlach. Many thanks Luca. Pours a cloudy red-amber color, no foam just some bubbles phenomena. Nose: chicken stable (love it), wild strawberries, wild mint, wet wood. Terrific! Mouth: almost flat carbonation, red fruit, tart, balanced. Just great!

750, nose is all raspberries, light funk, some complex lambic notes. Flavor starts all berries, very light tartness then some vinegar. One of the better 3 fonteinen fruit lambics.

Mora2000 (6101) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 20, 2015
Rating No. 6,000. 2014 vintage. Reddish-brown pour with a white head. The aroma has a lot of sour, seedy raspberry notes as well as some caramel malt. The flavor has a lot of raspberry flavor as well as some caramel. There is some really nice funky character and some big, puckering tartness. Fairly dry. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Excellent beer. So glad I got to try it.

Bottle from De Hopduvel. Pink colour, no foam. Very light carbonation. Sweet nose of raspberries. Very tart flavour with hints of vinegar. Very sour. Some sweet fruity notes. Good, but overrated.

Thank you Sune. 2011 version. Aroma is great. Lots of fruit, raspberry, tartness. Taste is lovely, big tartness, sour marmalade, sparkly on the tongue, lovely fruitiness. Very nice.

Generously shared by collin, pours from bottle into tulip glass at ernestos wedding. Cloudy slightly disturbed dark red color with lower carb light pink fading head. Aroma is super ja my raspberry, mild lemon, oak, vanilla, basement funk, touch of farm hay funk. Taste is sharply tart without any harsh vinegar. Ooverall one of the best fruit lambics ive had.

2014 bottle. Beautiful red pour. raspberry nose with hints of funk. No carbonation. Lots of tart raspberry but the lack of carb distracts. Nose is the best feature of this beer.
