3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #4000. Amber-brown, unfiltered body. Opens with a mini-pop...lacks much carbonation, some soda head persists. Big natural raspberry flavors are quite nice, but this isnít cutting it for a lambic..I donít really get any sour tones at all. The cherry tones are apparent once Iíve been enlightened to their existence. Seems to have really suffered from age, no vivacious liveliness. Still an enjoyable beverage, but hard to rate it high. I would still drink this every day of my life. Equal parts raspberry juice and beer. This is what lambic tasted like in the 90s.

1/20/2014. 750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Pours clear red with a short pink head. Aromas are all yeast and raspberry. Not as tart as I would have expected, but with nice fruit flavors and a bitter finish.

Mooi van kleur. Je ruikt duidelijk frambozen. Zurig van smaak, je proeft framboos en water. Lekkere nasmaak.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bb: 23, Feb 2014
A: Pours a maduro brown with hints of cherry tones. Single finger, light pink foam cap falls in a few minutes leaving a thin sheet of the same. Hazy at best. No lacing.
S: Raspberry, vitamin, mineralic qualities. A near cough syrup smell, but sweeter. Light and airy on the nose.
T: Raspberries are the highlight, plenty of tartness, not too overbearing. Hints of the yeast at the very, very finish. Iím having a difficult time articulating everything Iím tasting here.
M: medium to heavy mought feel with moderate carbonation. Leaves the mouth with a slight dryness.
O: The flavor of the beer is excellent, and it avoids the artificial sweetness I taste in lindemanís. Good beer. I wonder what would happen with a year or two on it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Optisch natuerlich beinahe ein Orgasmus, aber im Geschmack einfach nur sehr, sehr speziell. Im Aroma mit etwas viel Sauere und Beerenfruechten. Dazu abgerundet mit Kirsche und Himbeere. Ein feines, echt spezielles Bier, das seinem Ruf wirklich gerecht wird.
