2007 vintage thanks to travlr at the RBBSG II. Pours orangish red with tiny off-white head. The smell is over-ripe raspberries with lots of sweetness. The taste again the over-ripe raspberries, tart, citrus, vinegar coming later with a dry and crisp finish. Light body with crisp carbonation. Really special - I now understand the interest in this beer.

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.
