lachesis (756) - St Idesbald, - JUL 2, 2006
Vintage 2004. Graet deep-red color, copperisch and with a warm orange glow. Nice white, slight pinkish head leaving a fine lacing. Very fruity and expressive aroma with hints of sweet apple, red forrest berries, cherries, mullberries and overripe raspberries. It also has touches of musty tree bark, sous bois, some mint, old bourgundy wine, nectarine peaches and refreshing hops in the nose. The taste is fruity and keeps a good balance between sweet fruits (Berries, apples, and ripe stonefruits) the herbal bitters and the complex earthy accents. The afthertaste is very tastefull and the beer has a nice soury crispyness that counters the sweetness of the ripe red fruits and the refreshing herbalness of the well dosed hops. It has a great potential to age.

A nice raspberry beer. Pours clear red with no head. Aromas are fresh raspberries and raspberry jam. Flavors are sour and tart... But quickly fading. Flat palate.

cork and cage. Red hazy colour. Big fruity aroma with raspberries and sour cherries with some woodsy notes and some apple in there as well. I find this brew a little more tart than I expected with sour notes and a yeasty/estery flavour in the mid palate. It is a good beer and gets better as it opens up but for me it is a little bit too tart.

johnnnniee (2181) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle from Harvest Market Pours a slightly murky reddish brown color with a decent sized off white heads that dissipates rather quickly. Aromas of raspberry jam, a hint of molasses, and a bit of earthy funk. The flavor Is lightly tart from the fruit with lots of berry flavor. Hints of dark caramelized sugars with a touch of citric tartness and earthy funk. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Decent enough brew, but I felt it could have had more of a pucker factor.

allmyvinyl (2889) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 17, 2014
375ml bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours clear red-brown, no head. Big raspberry aroma, slight vinegar note. Taste is creamy raspberry torte, light sour, light chalky note. Thin, but not too thin. Fruit dominates, but very nice.

375 ml bottle to tulip. Looks decent; pretty soft carbonation though. A hazy amberish cherry with white lacing. Some ugly black sediment at the bottom of the bottle that I’m glad I didn’t pour into my glass. Smells fairly sweet and syrupy with notes of cherry and raspberry. A little bit of funk I suppose, but the borderline cloying nose covers it up. Tastes like it smells, it not as sweet, with an average (at best) medium-bodied mouthfeel. An underwhelming example of the style.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2014 Drunk 13/07/14 at home while watching tv. pours fizzy and clear with a small pink head. aroma surprised me. it wasnt just raspberries- more like a swiss roll with jam and cream. you can taste the lambic tartness, with a slight barnyard funk. although it could have done with more dryness so it doesnt feel as much like fizzy juice. overall it was decent tho

Helsdon (130) - Toronto, CANADA - JUL 12, 2014
Poured appropriately in a classic McDonald’s Fantasia tumbler, because after all this pours a clear purple with purple white head that disappears nothing. It’s soda pop! Lots of berry fruit taste. Some sour apples, raspberry, bitter grapes. Some sweet and sour. This beer is only Meh. Too much berry not enough lambic for me. When I accidently knocked over the whole thing I was more upset about busting the glass than the beer.
