UPDATED: MAR 14, 2010 RERATE from a bottle at RBWG. Much better this time around. Not an autolysis bomb. Hints of rubber, but nothing bad, cheesy, tart fruits, funk, musty basement, floral notes, lactic sourness. Much better. Very nice beer. -----bottle @ WTF OMG! Nose was huge rubber, michelin, burning, funky as hell, autolysis, apple skin, sour grapes, raspberry, loads of acidity. Flavor was an overwhelming rubber flavor, loads of rediculous funk, cheesy, horsey, the whole 9 yards. The rubber was tough to get past. (3.2)

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2009 Bottle shared at Toronado 22nd Anniversary, damn expensive but worth it. Tart berry aroma with mild sweetness and some funk. Flavor really incredible and long-lasting, tart yet slightly sweet raspberry and cherry, maybe some other berries, and wood. Palate awesomely dry and sharp. An awesome fruit lambic overall, one of the best I’ve tried yet.

Bottle thanks to nick for sharing at SDBF’09. Red with a hint of brown pour slightly cloudy. Aroma is of raspberries, and cherries mostly tart but has some sweetness to it. Flavor is well done with a slight oak finish

UPDATED: NOV 8, 2011 750ml bottle shared by MartinT. WOW.
Appearance : Clear red with a small head.
Aroma : Great funk with LOTS of raspberries. Nice notes of sweet cherries.
Taste : Sharp acidic sourness with great fruity raspberries and cheries. Finish is funky with lots of raspberries. Quite acidic.
Overall : Wow this is still awesome. I don’t think it show any signs of decline. Still lots and lots of raspberries. Maybe a bit more acidic than what I remembered. I still really like the complexity of having both raspberries and cherries. The cherries carry a more sweetish and round profile while the raspberries are all sharp and dry. They really balance each other beautifully. Finish is very persistent with great funk. Nose is still vibrant and very expressive. It still feels like a "young" fruit lambic. Stunning! Total score stays the same.

750ml bottle thanks to my friend Julien at Delirium Café. Pours red with a small head. Aroma is big raspberry with hints of cherries. Little tart. Taste is tart but not too much. Big cherries and some raspberries. A bit acidic but not much. The keyword here is balance. it really felt as a whole while having the raspberries and the cherries "fighting" for your palate and nose. Really dry finish. A really special brew dranked with great folks. Nice memories there. July 2009. 9,4,9,5,18;4.5

Bottle shared at gears81’s wedding, Congratulations Jake!! Pours a beautiful translucent ruby color. Aroma is a light raspberry and lemon peel. Flavor is soft raspberry flavor with a little tartness but a nice sour finish. Not too funky, but more acidic and fruity. Carbonation is lively and and perfect for the style.

Colore rubino carico,un pò opaco,poco o niente schiuma(l’ho già notato in altre lambic,dev’essere tipico del genere).Aroma forte:ciliegie,lamponi,sentori di cantina.In bocca è un pò aspra,astringente e agrumata.Molto dolce si sentono appieno i lamponi.Equilibrata perfettamente.Finale lungo.Che dire d’altro? Praticamente la perfezione del genere!

Bottled. Dark reddish coloured. Unclear. Light reddish head. Raspberries, sweetness, earth and some marcipan in the aroma. Flavour full of earth and raspberries. Acidic touch and sourness with a light sweetish touch. Has some light barnyard notes. Full bodied. Very dry. Sourish fruitsweetness in the end. Very very nice.

Lovely genuine raspberry aroma and even more wondefull flavour, slightly tart, well balanced and extremely fruity. Deep looking, deep tasting and straight up just a pure joy to drink really.
