ctipping (1126) - Florida, USA - APR 8, 2016
750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Batch 2. Originally review 5/18/2014. Deep red. Pinkish in the light. Nice light pink head. Thin layer of foam on the surface. Smell is intense raspberry. Just a little bit of sour cherry aroma. Lightly funky. Some lemony acidity and wheat grain. The lambic base is more dominant in the flavor. Lactic sourness. The raspberry is less jammy and sweet. Wheat graininess. Funky finish with a little bit of yogurt tang lingering in the finish. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Moderately sour. The fruit is really intense in the nose, but the lambic shines in the taste.

King_Alex_II (1146) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Marmelade red, thick sirup viscosity and very little foam. Raspberry sirup/marmelade nose. The taste is thick and gooey with a full fruity touch. This beer is awesomely balanced sourness, fruitiness and carbonation. Sourish fruity aftertaste.

mariuspoenari (1291) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
Sampled at a tasting. Dark ruby pour with no head. Smells sour, of vinegar, raspberries, cherries and barnyard funk. Tastes like vinegar, cherries, almonds and apple cider. Dry and refreshing.

philus (45) - Bazel, BELGIUM - MAR 25, 2016
Heard a lot about this beer, but didn’t fill in my expectations. Taste was somewhat on the thin side for me. Really good, but I’ve had better lambics to be honest!

daje (3782) - NORWAY - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle at Himmeriget, March 25th 2016. What a fine beer! Deep clear red body, no head. My friends glass has a white rim but my doesn’t. Aroma is funky, tart, raspberries, mild oak. The taste is a massive ride of raspberries and cherries, with a high acidic sourness. Teethpeeling. Funky Berry finish, lasting sour aftertaste. Excellent!

SinH4 (2441) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - MAR 25, 2016
Bottled 30/06/2015. Purple aroma with small head. Very viscous. Aroma is raspberry jam, syrupy and thick. Feels natural, though. Taste is a lot of raspberry jam, tart, but exactly the right level of tartness. Finish is sour, but just refreshing. Not so much of the typical 3 Fonteinen rubber/bread funk character. Extremely nice carbonation. Very intense fruit. Very good stuff, but not as stellar as I’d hoped for.

anstei (1015) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 25, 2016
Bottle, bottled 30.06.2015. Like raspberry jelly, viscous and slow. Intense aroma, syrup-like. Some low cherries, good funk, pleasant sourness. Pure and clean. Very, very nice!

ciocanelu (1071) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAR 22, 2016
Hazy red color with pink head. Aroma is really fruity with raspberry, strawberry and sour cherries. Also nice farmhouse funky notes. Taste follows with intense fruits, sour and funky, well balanced and easy to drink. Medium body with high effervescence. Really good one, fruity, funky and tasty.
