3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer is dark and has a creamy woodberry head. The aroma is well hidden. The first impression while tasting do bring up the woodberries again. Refreshing and drinkable.

33cl bottle. Allright. Quite sour instead of so sweet as their kreik. But besides a sour rasberry flavor, not much. Not overly sweet like a lot of lambics, there it excells, but nothing special.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
The commercial description for this reads, in part, "This beer has a real sour fruit taste just like crushed fruit..." Mayhaps that explains the problem that I have in understanding fruit lambics, particularly the framboise. The raspberries that I eat arenít sour. When fresh, theyíre quite sweet, perhaps with a bit of a sweet/sour nip at the finish. But theyíre sweet overall. Now I drink a brew that tastes like a raspberry soda gone bad. Itís not unpleasant, but whatís the attraction? Itís got a nice ruby color, a thin white head, the aroma of a Sweet Tart candy, and the taste of sour raspberries. Personally, I feel a fruit juice would be as refreshing... although it doesnít have a 5% abv, Iíll grant you.

i am very new to the lambic style so my rating my not be up to par,but here goes.
this lambic gave me an appearance much like a nice iced tea.the aroma contained rasberry and that sour lambic signature.i expected a bit more rasberry in the flavor due to the taste.most of what i got was a sourness and some carbonation,with the fruit hidden in the back.pretty good stuff but i like a bit more fruit in my lambics.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red and amber color with a large white head. The aroma is as expected, raspberries and some dry funky barnyard. A fairly tame aroma for a lambic, though. The taste is fruitier than I expected. The raspberries are almost overwhelming. While the funky barnyard is certainly in the background, it isnít overwhelming by any means. Almost too sweet. Has an interesting dry finish I havenít experienced before.
