Darkened orange. Aroma of over-ripe berries, hints of paintthinner, barnyard/dried hay and some woody notes. Taste is acidic, cellary, loads of berries and fruityness and bone-dry.

Red no head...or very little...yes to style. Huge aroma of cherrie and raspberries, added funk and barnyard made this an aromatic dream. Flavor matches aroma so well balanced with tart fruit and barnyard funk A++++

Raspberry and tart cherry aroma with decent amount of oak and must. Flavor equal to wonderful aroma. Finishes crisp and raspberry with oak lingering on.

I’m afraid my English vocabulary is to limited to describe such a superb beer. Hell, even my Flemish is to limited I’m afraid. Purple head quickly disappearing after pouring the bear. Good carbonation. Self-evident fruity aroma’s dominated by the cherries but after some time I also recognise the raspberries. Cherry is dominantly present at the start, but when the cherry’s faint away, the raspberries pop up. I don’t think you can get closer to perfection for this style of beer. My first 20/20. Only a slightly longer lasting head might have resulted in a completely perfect score.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 Many thanks to hellomynameis for this great treat. Massive sour barnyard funk with excellent lactic character. Faint cherry and raspberry flavor. Wow. Lactic flavor with some funk. Amazing beer. Reminds me of a wisconsin spring. Ok, end wine pretense. My second tasting of this was better than I remembered it. Bottled at Falling Rock. The as tart and refreshing as I remember, but the cherry really smoothed out the finish.

Bottle dated 14/02/2007, bought at the brewery store in July 2008, consumed on 21/11/2009. Appearance is bright purple, starts clear and progresses to cloudy/chunky due to my poor pouring skills. Soda-pop head that starts vigorously but disappears in seconds to leave no bubbles or lacing. Smell changes every nanosecond. Vinegar, sour cherries, horse, raspberries, dust, and about a million other things - all at the same time. Taste was amazing. Defies words. Sweet and sour all at once. Evident fruit. Must, dust and mold, and sweaty animals. Vinegar, the high end balsamic type from Modena. Mouthfeel is orgasmic. Drinkability is top of the line, not just for lambics, but for all beer. Nothing short of miraculous.

pours blood red with no head. aroma bursts with tart cherries, raspberries, earthy, vinegar. drinks with tons of juicy tart cherries with pit and sweet raspberries. tartness peeks through the whole drink with just enough pucker to make you want more and more. finishes sweet with tons of fruits and berries coating the palate. just amazing.

There is a lot of barnyard and funk in this aroma with some sour cherry notes and a bit of raspberry sweetness. It is nicely carbonated with some soft fizz on the tongue. Lots of raspberry up front with a bunch of lactic sourness with tart cherries finishing it out. Really nice overall with some very interesting flavours.

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.
