4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
375ml bottle from Marseille bottled 29.9.2015, enjoyed at home.
The aroma is of fresh raspberries, very pleasant.
The beer pours with a minimal head and has a lovely pinkish color.
The taste is raspberry juice. But what a raspberry juice it is, there is no taste of alcohol the sour raspberries dominate the flavour with some more lambicy notes towards the end, the carbonation is average.
Give this a try, it is something worth tasting and paying for. Make your own mind about this esteemed brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml March ’15 bottle from trade. Aroma: raspberries, tart, lactic, dusty. App: cloudy red purple-ish, small pink head, good retention, nice lacing. Taste and palate: thin body but really soft almost feels creamy which gives the impression that the body is bigger, really fruity, not too sweet, I’d say light sweetness, soft carbonation, medium acidity finish. Overall: damn! That pretty good. Think I got the perfect temperature for this beer which makes it highly drinkable. A great beer to finish my vacation. Looks like I’ll trade some stuff to get some more.

Bottle, bottled March 2015, courtesy of SinH4 - thanks! Beautiful raspberries, and quite some funk despite being less than one year old. Late but lasting tart sourness. Quite dry. Next time I’ll try an even younger one, I do like the sweet parts of fruit lambics.

From notes on 9/10/15. Brought a bottle back to the hotel after spending time at Cantillon. This is probably the most sour beer we had while there. Tart raspberry taste. Very good. Excited I brought some bottles home with me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample @ Cantillon Brewery. Pours red with pink head. Aroma of raspberries with wild notes, sourness. Taste is moderately sour. Very drinkable. I definitely prefer kriek to framboise, but this is still a decent beer.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottled in 18 of march 2015. Very nice raspberry red colour. Such a nice raspberry, straberry, even flowerly aroma. Exceptional and powerful sour raspberry at first. The taste contiues with raspberry and strawberry. Some oakiness in the end with nice summery raspberries again. Exceptional lambic with such an ernoumus dominating of raspberries.
