4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2014 Bottle at 3 Fonteinen.shared with Dennoman and kermis. Pours hazy amber amber witha red hue. Aroma of funky raspberries, citrus and bit of grapefruit. Light body with nice light fruity sweetness and an acid sting that increaes in intensity towards the finish. lots of grapefruit peel in the taste next to sour cherries.
Had a fresh 2013 bottle as well in the meanwhile. Huge raspberry bomb, nice sourness perfectly balanced with the huge amount of forest fruit. Upped 0.4.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 20.04.2013, 0,75l bottle shared with ClubGonzo, ej & OleR @ Chez Moeder Lambic Fontainas:
Fyldig fruktig lukt med preg av raude syrlige bær, eddik, maling, buljong, gras. Frisk lett syrlig fruktig smak med preg av eplecidereddik, sure raude bær, syregras, maling, sitron. Middels bitterhet som set litt. God, men langt frå å vere noke fantastiske greier.

Overall, the sugary taste from the raspberries is long gone and now almost a tomato flavor...good but on the down slope.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rated from beer log during 2009 Belgium trip... Sweet raspberry aroma, served in a champagne glass... Attractive magenta to dark red in color... Flavor is tart and sweet, more tart than sweet, refreshing and crisp, but the palate is what sets it apart... Sour, which stays long after sipping and is amazingly powerful... Great for a lambic, although it cost me 25 euro

Wow, not as wonderful as expected and wonder if it was cellared properly. Aroma brings too muc sulfur dioxide for me, like gas, with a little paint thinner and berry. Body is thicker, definitely bringing a big dryness. Flavor is quite tart and the berries are under the puckering tartness.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
As expected, fantastic fruit lambic. Raspberries are strong, cherries are subtle. Great acidity and clean fruit. Surprisingly little funk for its age. 2007 bottle at Brouwer’s.
