Bottle shared by Brad at RBWG 2014, thanks! Pours a hazy earthy red with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light tart raspberry note with a huge earthy/barnyard funk note. Flavor is more acidic but still has raspberries coming through with funk throughout.

Bottled. Pours deep amber with small off-white head. Aroma of sour cherries, wood and barnyard. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and tart. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and flat carb. A nice lambic indeed.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Unbelievable stuff, thanks to David for hunting it down. Very punchlike beer, excellent raspberry flavor bursting throughout, aroma is juicy fruit, but never artificial, light cherry sweetness. The only problem I can find is that there’s a weird balance on the tartness: in the mouth it’s perhaps a touch less lactic than I’d like, but after swallowing it leaves a lingering burn. I still got through my 12 oz with total glee, but it keeps it from being a perfect fruitbic.

Tonight just seemed like the right time to open up the last bottle of the 2007 vintage...before I was tempted with some of the crazy trade offers. Slightly mahogany dark grapefruit with a off white head with a rose shading. Smells a bit musty, earthy raspberries, cherry, carbonation, some blanket, light acidity, oak, funk; every time you take a sniff there seems to a different combination of funk and fruit. Although the raspberries have faded they are still present and I like that the sweetness has given way to more funk and sourness (but no enamel peeling acidity). Moderate+ carbonation, dry, funky body, somewhat fruity ending but more dry oak and funk. Good lord this is delicious - so happy to be drinking it but so sad its my last bottle. O well.
