Orange/red color with a fleeting white head. Huge seedy woody aroma with barnyard and fresh raspberries. Light/medium body. Flavor starts dry and tart with raspberry seed, wood with citrusy lemon and dry hay; nicely complex with a fairly strong acididty throughout. Another fantastic 3 Fonts brew. As for the big price, i’m just glad to have had the chance to try this without jetting to Belgium or giving up half my cellar stash....

Like a sweet Rapsberry Jam. For a Lambic, not much tartness or funk at all, which is nice for a cjange. Damn good beer, but a bit pricey for sure.

"The Funk Runs Deep" was the quote put forth to describe this beer. Nicely tart, but the action really came through on the funky character of this beer. Really nice. Great composition of fruit lustrous aromas and Thanks to DA for dropping some cash and bringing it to share. Defiantly worth sharing at a tasting.

Bottle at Spuyten Duyvil. Wow! Gorgeous earthy red pour. Aroma luscious lambic juice, wheat, sour raspberry, strawberry, cherry, earth, funk, but all in glorious, full-flavor, full-body balance. Flavor, well, what more can I say after the aroma but that it all just continues in wonderful harmony. A lambic that’s at once splendidly tart, flooringly fruity, and superbly refreshing. My note-taking skills may have eroded over the course of many hours in 95 degree heat, but this one was a thing of beauty.

Bottle from Spuyten Duyvil. I was super excited to get to try this beer! Pours a dark red/pink with a beautiful light pink head. Aroma of oak, raspberry, and tartness. Flavor of sweet raspberries, tartness, sugar. Initially this was very sweet but got more sour as I drank it. Quite delicious but it doesn’t beat Schaerbeekse for me.

cdog69 (28) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Capone’s, 750ml bottle. Aroma is like a hop full of berries with raspberry being prominent. The appearance is mix of amber and orange with no head. Flavor is tart like a bottle of pure cherry juice. Tart puckering start with a bubbly sour finish. Very tart and dry, hard to find the fruit with the tart and sour.

tjthresh (1866) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 8, 2008
750 ml bottle from Capone’s. Served in a flute. Pours copper amber orange with not much heat at all. The nose smells like raspberry jam with some cherry pits and stems. The lambic character takes over any impression of fruit that may be here. Sure I get a bit, but it is very tart and lactic yogurt flavored. Medium body with high carbonation. Very dry finish. Not really one of my favorite lamics, but still tasty.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Bottle at Spuyten Brettfest. Ruby red color with a beautiful, funkified aroma. Dry without being sweet, tart and somewhat puckering, cheesy and leathery. All good stuff in this.

jercraigs (8276) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
2008-05-31. hazy red body, modest white-pink head. (3+) Light musty funk introduces a good amount of rich raspberry aroma. (8+) Flavour is cheek tuggingly sour at first but the tongue quickly acclimatizes, remains quite sour throughout but allows the fruit to come out nicely. Tart-sour raspberries. (7+) Palate is zippy, average plus body - its not superb for my own preferences, but it is spot on for the beer. Pretty awesome, many thanks to those who brought this, it was one of my few ’must tries’ that I did not find on my trip to Belgium. Quite good. Bottle, Post-Mondial Tasting, Montreal
