4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2012 750ml. Lovely beer from one of my favorite brewers. Distinctive in its funky, musty character while still delivering a fresh rasberrry punch and refreshing sourness.
6/19/12 Draft. As great as ever, actually maybe better. Upping appearance because it is lovely in the glass, ruby with a light red rasberry head, and overall score because the fresh rasberry flavor that develops is outstanding. Better than most actual fresh rasberries you will eat.

Bottle, Picked up at Noel Cuviers, Abel, West Flanders Belgium, Late June 07 Poured raspberry red with great pink head. Aroma had some raspberry there but quite sour and a bit musty and woody. Flavours were acidic, sour but not as sour as expected, a hint of raspberry, and very dry.

Wow...my quest for sour beer has reached a new pinnacle. This was the most sour beer Iíve rated yet! Aroma of sour raspberries and a little vinegar. Pour was a medium to dark brown with a frothy white head. Taste was extremely sour with with just a tad of raspberry...very faint. Mostly the sourness consumed my mouth and thatís how I like it! Awesome!

I was fortunate enough to have this on draft at Monks in Philadelphia. This is one of the better lambics Iíve had. It had a tart raspberry taste with some subtle earthy flavors.

More aggressive than many framboise I have had. Not such a good tool for getting into bed with girls as many framboise are, but ultimately more rewarding flavourwise.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2008 750ml, 2007. Cranberry red color with a thin pinkish-white head. Sour, yeasty, tart aroma. Cherries, and other tart berries are very apparent. Fresh and bubbly. Sour and simple. Very fresh. I like it, but itís hot out today and it works. Not their best, but drinkable and refreshing. Rerate, 750ml, 2008. I have a little more experience with lambics now. Aroma is well balanced and super tart. Green hay and lightly effervescent in the nose. So tart with just enough berries. Dry astringent finish. Sweet tart and preserved lemon. So much better than I remembered.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2009 750 ml corked bottle. Pinkish head diminishing whilst pouring. Slight unclear pale ruby colored body. Initial aroma of barnyard and horseblanket, and then sourness and tart acidity takes over. Hints of rasberry in the flavor, defeated by a heavy sourness. Mouth-cleansing tartness throughout the finish. A bit too challenging for my tastebuds.

Bottle at home.
Light red. Aroma and flavor very sour, not much pleasure about this. And the raspberries are not tasted at all.

375 ml bottle. Cloudy orange red colour - blood orange. Medium-sized white head with a red tinge. Sharp acidic nose balanced by red berries. Really acidic upfront flavours. Great fruity flavours balanced by sour sharpness. Challenging, but really nice mix of fruit and acidity.
