NO artificial sweeteners, flavourings, preservatives or colouring agents. Brewed in Lembeek, the village that gave Lambic its name.

Ughsmash (7203) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Bottled, BB 4/15/14. Poured rosy amber with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet raspberries paired with leather, lemon zest, and dried cherries.. light undercurrents of hay and oxidation.. solid. The flavor found tangy raspberry seeds and oak on the tip of the tongue, with sweeter fruits and a touch of pale malt behind.. dry and lightly funky throughout.. finished even drier, with nice tanginess from the berries.. tasty. Lighter-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. a tad sweeter than I wanted, but it was mighty approachable.. Id have another.

Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, 14.1.2015. Reddish. Bread and strawberry marmalade aroma with a little old milk. Sweet, then sour, then fruit yogurt taste. Full body, berry ice-cream finish. Good.

0.25L bottle. Fresh raspberry and blackberry aroma. Nice dark purple color, medium foam on top. Sour apple wine, raw berryes, grass, flavors. Very enjoyable bitter, caramellic fruity finish.

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 (211) - 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.

Desverger (2530) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2015
Tap@Fermentoren, CPH - pours a reddish colour with pink head. Aroma and taste is prominent raspberry fruity, raspberry jam like, some other red berry fruits and tartness on the palate, not my style but pleasing and enjoyable nonetheless.

barbillon (36) - Pesaro, ITALY - JAN 18, 2015
Bottiglia del 2012. Aroma vinoso e di intenso lampone!! Colore non proprio bellissimo per i miei gusti ma in bocca un piacevole incontro. Giusto bilanciamento tra fruttato e acidulo!! Da riprovare...

Great raspberry lambic, tart and sour with great fruity balance, great example. Raspberry and cherries through and through.

Thin head, disappears quickly. Aroma of raspberries and wine. Tastes dry, sour and fruity (raspberries). Light body, very drinkable.

Alengrin (2606) - BELGIUM - JAN 12, 2015
Semi-authentic but classic framboise with thin, loose head and deep ruby pinkish colour; raspberries very evident in the nose, even raspberry bushes, along with subtle lambic character, woody hints, funky accents; sweet sourish taste, utterly fruity, raspberry jam but lambic acidity and complexity is still in there too, with a somewhat woody and dryish finish. Sweetened alright (using only fresh raspberries would probably make this too expensive), but not bad at all in this particular style.

EKGoldings (580) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle with cork (best before 2 years from now). Pours clear, blood red with fine bubbles and decent head. Aroma is sweet fruit, raspberry and cherry with a bit of cooked strawberry. There are some mid notes that are interesting. Taste is tart fruit with zingy carbonation. Clean flavors, not a lot of funk in this one. Really an excellent take on the style.
