2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy pinkish brown with red hues and a white head. Smells strongly of raspberries, slightly sour. The flavour is also very sour, but not necessarily in a bad way. It is a very carbonated beer and raspberries dominate, as expected, but there is a touch of malt and an odd metallic taste near the finish - this could be the alcohol flavour mixing with the fruit. Although I am a fan of sour flavours when it comes to lambics, this could benefit from a touch of sweetness, perhaps just to mellow the intensity of flavour. On saying that hwever, the palate is left with a lingering berry sweetness that begs for another sip.

375ml bottle. Pink reddish color. Small pinkish head. Aroma of raspberries, cherry, little bit of lemon. Sweet and sour taste mostly of raspberries with some cherry background. Quite refreshing and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating from 6.1.2008: Der Geruch ist sehr schön fruchtig nach süßen Himbeeren.
Der Antrunk ist sauer-frisch, das Himbeeraroma tritt erst sehr schön ausgewogen im Hauptteil hinzu. Dort aber umso mehr!
Im Abgang überwiegt die Säuerlichkeit des Lambic. die Himbeeren bleiben aber durchaus spürbar. Insgesamt ist es doch sehr schön ausgewogen - vor allem, da es laut Etikett nur mit echten Himbeeren gebraut ist. --> 12.6

Bottle from BeerRitz, Leeds. Part of a tasting with Pix. Deep red with little head. Mild raspberry aroma. Sharp raspberry taste with almost no sweetness at all. Clean quite watery finish that leaves something of a metallic taste in the mouth.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle vintage 2010
Red beer with a bit of deposits (but I had the last bit). Aroma sweet cherry juice. Taste sour and some weak cherry notes, too dry and I missed some sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Porterhouse. Honestly, I’m not getting some of the Boon lambics. This was quite sweet and tarty without a great deal of sourness. Really sugar forward with a touch of heat. Kind of like an intense Ribena. Not my kind of lambic

Pours very dark red. Aroma is massive amounts of raspberries and not much else. Taste is raspberries. And raspberries. And raspberries. And.... You get the point. Very nice though!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours out in a deep dark ruby colour with almost no head and medium body. Aroma of unripe raspberries and sourness. Taste of green raspberries, acid, leaves, yoghurt and torf. Quite delicious and nice to drink with some big, dry Lambic hints. Not sweet at all, not quaffable at all but delicious anyway.
