Unbelievable stuff, thanks to David for hunting it down. Very punchlike beer, excellent raspberry flavor bursting throughout, aroma is juicy fruit, but never artificial, light cherry sweetness. The only problem I can find is that there’s a weird balance on the tartness: in the mouth it’s perhaps a touch less lactic than I’d like, but after swallowing it leaves a lingering burn. I still got through my 12 oz with total glee, but it keeps it from being a perfect fruitbic.

Bottleshare. 2015 edition - Loads of raspberry on the aroma, slight strawberry and red berries. Vanilla and oak. The taste has tons of raspberries, vanilla and syrup. Quite good.

4400th review! 750 ml bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 6/30/2015. Pours slightly hazy ruby red color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense and fluffy light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. :Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of huge tart/juicy/jammy raspberry, sour cherry, cranberry, strawberry, lemon peel, hay, straw, pepper, leather, musty funk, oak, light red wine vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Fantastic aromas with awesome complexity and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, raspberry/cherries, oak, and light malt notes; with great strength. Taste of huge tart/juicy/jammy raspberry, sour cherry, cranberry, strawberry, lemon peel, hay, straw, pepper, leather, musty funk, oak, light red wine vinegar, wheat, and yeast/oak earthiness. Good amount of fruity/acidic sourness and yeast/tannic oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of sour raspberry, cherry, cranberry, strawberry, lemon peel, hay, straw, pepper, leather, musty funk, oak, light red wine vinegar, and yeast/oak earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, raspberry/cherries, oak, and light malt flavors; with a great sour/tart/spiciness balance and zero astringent flavors after the finish. Good dryness from lactic acidity/tannic spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, acidic/tannic, and lightly grainy/creamy mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 6%. Overall this is an incredible fruit lambic! All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/funky/acidic yeast, raspberry/cherries, oak, and light malt flavors; very smooth and easy to drink for the high level of acidity. A really amazing offering all around.
