lachesis (757) - 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.

tmrmwel (1121) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle, vintage 2013. Pours red, with a big pink creamy head,receding to finger thickness. Aroma is tart berries, with raspberries, cherries and blackcurrants, as well as some tannins and earthy notes of brett. Full body, with average carbonation. Flavour is tart raspberries, blackcurrants and wooden notes, as well as some light funky bretty notes. A bit too light on the acidity, but nice fruity tartness and very good drinkability.

olliejobbins (1162) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2015
250ml bottle. pours a hazy...raspberry colour with dark pinkish light purple. aroma is full of berries. lovely fresh raspberry, strawberries (yeah i know there are none in it), cherries and tart apples. really nice sweet and sour fruit in the taste all at the same time. pretty sour and dry at first but it does finish a little sweeter. easy drinking.

Maakun (965) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle at home. Hazy dark red with dark pink head. Dough, twigs, cherry, raspberry, cherry pits, dry musty cellar, hay. But weird at first but the raspberries and other red fruits cut through very nicely but they’re almost overwhelmed by the hay-like notes. Light sweet with medium sourness going into cobweb finish... Medium bodied. I quite like it, it’s very different from other raspberry lambics, a bit less fruity and more hay/twigs but not bad at all.

Awesomeness....like a raspberry fruit champagne with barnwood notes. May be too carbonated for style but the fact it was fruity and dry made it great. Syrupy carbonation is lke cherry cola, this is opposite with brite cherry raspberry notes and flavors with a nice malt oak wheat backbone! Perfect.

Pours dark red with a fast diminishing head. Strong aroma, dominated by raspberries and some notes of wood and raspberry-sourness. Flavor is moderate sour, heavy raspberry,a bit sharp. Nice

Giraffe (4) - - JAN 24, 2015 does not count
Quickly disappearing pink head, pleasant and natural raspberry aroma. The taste is disappointing - extremely sour, without hints of anything else. Very nice aroma, but that alone cannot compensate for the taste.

lobs_ols (234) - LATVIA - JAN 24, 2015
Weak pink head, dark opaque pink. Strong and nice raspberry aroma - like jam. Taste disappoints - watery and a bit sour with some notes of raspberry. Finishes watery and a bit dry.
