Beautiful dark red body with a light pink head. The aroma is massive raspberries with some hay. There are also some leathery notes. The taste is very tart with some light raspberries behind it. There is also some leathery goodness behind that. A light clean body, this is not as overwhelming as I would have expected. Very nicely made with a dry finish.

Pours ruby red with an light red head bubbly head that dissapates quickly. Aroma of barnyard, wood, cherries, and raspberries. Taste is wood to start with the cherry and raspberry showing up in the middle with a nice tart ending. What a great balanced mix of flavors without anything overpowering the other. Thanks Grim!!!

Bottle shared by my son Enniskillen from Bottleworks; Nose is horseblanket and sour cherries cloudy raspberry colored with a nice pink head; flavor is very tart with nice cherries; nicely funky without completely overshadowing the cherries; excellently balanced!

Red with a thin white head. Aroma is sour, vinegar, raspberries, cherries. Taste is a light red wine vinegar like character, raspberries, and cherries show with light funkiness, lightly acidic. Real nice stuff.

750 ml bottle. Lots of sour funk in this beer. Flavors and aromas of cherry. Very tasty. Acidic in the finish with more sour and tartness to tickle the palate. Good Stuff

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.
