375 ml bottle. Pours a subtly veiled orange-tinted pink with a whitish-pinkish head. Aroma is raspberry, tart, fruity, and somewhat cheesy. Flavor is dry, brettish, wild yeast, oldish, cherry and raspberry, as well as unripe fruits. Lots of tartness, oldish, and a touch of wood. Lingering wild yeast flavor. Medium to full bodied, soft, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very solid.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
750ml bottle (February 2013 vintage) pours hazy ruby red with a finger of pink foam. Nose is tangy funk, subtle fruity berry, must. Taste is tart funky oak and raspberry, fruit jam, mild acidity, dank wood, some light grain. Finish is dry tart raspberry, some faint vanilla, occasional semi-sweet lingering berry notes. More dry and funky than sweet. Improves as it warms and the fruit layers become more pronounced. Very nice!

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Color of a blood-orange with a fast disappearing pink head. Strong attic smell when opening then bottle, but seems to be the fruits after a closer sniff. Very bitter citrus taste. Would guess it is a lambic with lemon rather than raspberries. Not my style but something different for once. Besides this feels a bit watery.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Questa birra elegiaca è il non plus ultra della seduzione per le papille dell’amante del lambic. Il gusto pungente del lampone cavalca elegantemente l’onda acida che lambisce il palato, lasciando uno strascico prolungato e suadente. Se la bevi, è amore.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a dark pink colour with a white head that disappears quickly. Suor smell,, with strawberry, some citrus and barnyard. Acid taste with strawberry and citrus. Low carbonation with a sticky palate. A very good beer, not too sweet like many other fruitbeer, but more oriented around the sourness. Lovley!
