3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Enjoyed at the Ashley’s Rare & Vintage Beer TasteFest on June 07. The pour is a nice foggy gold with hints of reddish-orange and a thin off-white-yet-lightly-pink head and no lacing. The aroma is big sour and fruits, yet lightly floral. The flavor is a blast of the sourness backed up by a nice fruitiness. I was surprised at how sour it seemed up front, and there was a lack of much else. The mouth feel isn’t extraordinarily thin, but the carbonation is pretty great. The aftertaste actually changes a little, from a sour bomb with a smooth fruitiness that lingers beautifully

Belle couleur rose rouge. Un nez de fruit rouge particulièrement de framboise. Une acidité moyenne qui reste bien en bouche et pas trop sucré. Un ensemble très agréable.

Sehr feines und ausgewogenes Lambic mit einer feinen Fruchtigkeit und der Andeutung von Himbeeren. Wie im echten Leben auch, so kommt es etwas sauer daher. Zu sauer für mich, aber der Wille, Qualität zu liefern schimmert klassisch durch. Top.

750 ml bottle shared with the wife. Pours a hazy dark pink, reddish color with a small pinkish head. The aroma and flavor have tart raspberries, a surprising amount of cherry as well, tart to sour, moderate plus acidity, a touch lactic, some funk, some wood, the body feels thin which is a minor drawback, the drinkability helps to make up for that.

Bottle from Douberd and shared by MichaelAwesome - many thanks! The lambic pours out in a light hazy pink-red colour with airy head and medium body. Wonderful nose of sour berries and grapes. Taste of fresh raspberries, sour berries, leaves and acid. Nice sour finish. Enjoyed it a lot.

Strong raspberry aroma. Some funk, some grassiness, some wet hay. Taste has a lot more funk, and a very distinct tartness that is just on the border of too much. Nice, refreshing, and surprisingly fruity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Shared with the crew. Never picked this up when it was readily available but finally getting a chance to circle back here. Super floral aroma with a musty dirty earthy funk to it. Flavor is fruit and lots of it obviously. Earthy and dirt again later on the palate. Reddish orange color. Little bit of spie on the finish. You are left with a syrupy red fruit long lasting flavor again as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beergium.com. Amber-red, hazy body, with a small, pink head. Aroma of flowers, red berries, tart, earth, wood. Taste is very dry and sour, with about the same aromas, but almost no sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, with a medium carbonation and it finishes dry and sour-fruity. Unique and highly drinkable. The dryness maybe is a bit too extreme for my liking, but the aromas are really tasty and greatly balanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught. Clear, red colour with a creamy pink head. Fruity, tart aroma with raspberries, a dry wooden note and yeasts. Taste is sour. Medium body with a creamy texture and an average carbonation. Finishes drying and sour with raspberries and yeasts. Not the most complex Lambic, just bloody delicious.

Bottle 375 ml at home, pooured into a teku, ABV 5%, vintage 2012
Impressive clear red copper colour, with a huge off-pink head on top, soapy, with okay retention. Even on the second pour when it was quite hazy, the colour is beautiful.
Aroma if raspeberries, wood, cork, marmalade with the taste following, except that it doesn’t have any marmalade related sweetness, but on the contrary a nice acidic sourness that got me by surprise but it didn’t get long to get used to it.
Medium thin body with good carbonation, and very tart on the palate.
