Bottle courtesy of Jan & Charlotte in Ulfborg. A big, big thank you very much! Had this in company of Jan, Charlotte, Craig, Stella, Loz and Morten 19.05.13 Wonderful aroma, fresh, clean, juicy squashed raspberries with just a little musty, dusty old furniture on the swirl. Zappy, tangy fresh and wonderful fruitiness. This really dries out the gums, Craig gets lemonyness and I get that a little with a touch of jiffy lemon coming through with that wonderful fresh, plump juicy raspberry. Marvellous beer.

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 (6049) - 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.

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.

2014. Pour is lightly hazed dark ruby red with no head. Nose is light mineral, bright fleshy raspberry, very jammy, and moderate acidity. Flavor is super strong raspberry, very fleshy and ripe, not as much acidity, light mineral, hint of bitterness, a touch of sourness, full bodied, no carb.

2014 bottle. Red pour. Sweet raspberry nose with hints of barnyard funk. Quite still, very little carbonation. Lots of raspberry, dry and tart. Not overwhelmingly sour. Very nicely done.

tmoreau (2979) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 24, 2015
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters showing a cloudy, copper color, with a modest, bubbly, soft white layer of foam that quickly reduced to a very light film, and little to no lacing. The nose was raspberry, with a touch of woodiness, some bretty funk. and a faint hint of cookie. The taste was dry, and ultra tart raspberry, retained a bit of the earthiness, showed low effervescence, but seemed fuller than light bodied due to the intensity of the flavor notes. Very flavorful, with amped pucker power! Rare but pricey investment.
