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.

Inbreak (1538) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2013
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.

baraciisch (1533) - USA - OCT 8, 2013
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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Super fresh bottle shared at wedding party. Pours cloudy pink/purple with a fast dissipating white head. Aroma is red red fruits, raspberries, funk, manure, barnyard, cherries and vinegar. Beautiful fruity flavour. Light sour, light sweet. Perfect balance. Long fruity tart dry finish. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Amazing beer. Incredibly balanced. Armand really knows his lambics!

And another fun bottle of beer offered by cpferris. Thanks once again. Bug jammy fruits. Potent raspberry seeded jammy raspberries. Fruit forward with a clean soft yogurt acidity. Easy drinkin. Some pleasant old must cellar and leather funk. Tight.
