Pours purple-ish with a pink head. The aroma has tart cherries, lush raspberries, oak, sourness, wild buggines and light vinegar. It has a smooth crisp body that has soft gentle carbonation. The flavor starts out with rounded fruit and sourness. There is a bit of creaminess to the taste that isn’t in most lambics. The fruit has a big lushness to it and has aspects of raspberries, cherries and other berries. The finis has some vinegar notes and lactic sourness. Nice lambic.

Shared at the SARA anniversary party. A- nice cloudy red with light rusty and rosy head. No lacing S- musty and dirty funk with raspberries and bing cherries offer up a pleasant base that is oddly joined by nylon, bell pepper, urinal cake, more muddled berries, white pepper, wood and Chessmen shortbread cookies. M- light to medium sticky body with a medium acetic palate with good carbonation. T- good, but not exactly living up to the hype. Sour cherries, salt and lemons are strong up front. Mid palate is raspberries, grass, and vinegar. End is long and tart with lemon juice, grapefruit, sour cream and extra sharp cheddar funk wrapping it up.

Ibrew2or3 (6835) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Pours murky with a deep amber colored body that is nuanced by rosy red hues and supports a thin white to slightly pinkish head. The aroma offers up berry notes mixed with soured fruit, slight vinegar and yeastiness along with an inviting undercurrent of earthy basement funk. The taste has thick berry richness that intercedes amid a river of sourness and slight yet slippery soft vinegar notes. Behind the big flavors lurks an all too subtle funky basement earthiness that does a good job pulling this together. In there as well is a flash of spicy wood every now and then. Cool brew with a nice balance and depth and I just love funky messed up yummy earthy barnyard goodness and this has some.

Pours a reddish pink with no lacing. The aroma is predominantly bright cherry notes followed by raspberry and vinegar. Opens up to more and more raspberry.Moderate tartness and acidity.

Drunk from 75cl bottle bought at Malting Pot, Brussels. A fantastic tart, sharp, raspberry lambic beer. A real classic. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bruxellover (16) - Dilbeek, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2014
Fantastic blends of fruit with this lambic. Cherry tartness supports the raspberry fruit. Blended so well with the barnyard yeast leather spine. Great

Marheb (1997) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2014
Confitures de framboises plastré dans la rusticité des cérélales anéanties. Des épaves d’acide lactique flottent dans l’extreme acidité. Aussi brutal qu’élégant.
