3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
very interesting beer because of the way they make it - by natural fermentation. fresh raspberry smell (well it’s done with raspberries, so has to be), acid and a bit bitter taste, long acidish aftertaste

@Cantillon from the barrel at room temperature. Slightly hazy red colour with a nice pink head. Sour, berries, basement and wood in the aroma. Soft carbonation and light to medium body. Taste is tart with fruity notes and a wine character. Overall, a very good and balanced lambic.

Nez frais, puissant/pétillant/léger comme le champagne.Je suis un novice des gueuzes/lambics : les bières aciiiides !
Ca tombe bien celle-ci ne l’est pas trop.
Robe framboise profond, suberbe, mousse blanche "champenoise".
Bouche : framboise acides (les vrais qu’on croque dans les champs et les bois), acidité vineuse, et quelque chose de boisé (discret).
Des bières qui ne ménage pas l’ulcère.

From a bottle at Derby Beer Fest. Pour a deep red with a pink head. Smells fruit with the sour notes coming through. Sourness edge is taken off by the fruit. It’s a great beer and a good starter lambic.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. I can not believe I don’t have this rated. Nose is raspberry, cellar, lemon, wheat, straw, farmyard, wood,oak, warm leather. Taste is tart, leather, oak, wheat, leading to lemon juice, funk, leaves, vinegar, cheese, then a bone dry raspberry flavour with a herbal note. Moutfeel is tacky and full.
The first lambic I fell in love with, and a beer that truly changed my palate and drinking habits. Peerless, in that it handles fruit in a way that respect the flavour of the fruit rather than just the sugars of the fruit.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: clear ruby red with a short frothy pink head diminishing rapidly to a thin skim, no lacing. (4/5) Aroma: raspberries, vinegar, funk, stone fruit, leather, tobacco, woody. (9/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderately strong tart. (9/10) Palate: light to medium body, lively to moderate carbonation, dry intensely tart finish. (5/5)
So good. Intense raspberry that in no way feels artificial, blending perfectly with a loverly tart lambic base, with overarching complicating notes of horseblankety funk, leather, wood, and, let’s face it, just about anything else you can think of. This is a new bottle that I just recently obtained at the brewery, so the fruit is still very much dominant at the forefront. I‘ve had a 2014 vintage in my cellar for just about a year now, that I’m going to continue to cellar for a while longer - maybe another year or two - before seeing what happens as the fruit fades and the lambic is allowed to gain ground.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours clear intense reddish pink with creamy pink head. Looks amazing. Aroma is tart raspberries, sour, funky leather, acidic grapes and apples, some wine notes, oak, slight vanilla and slight oxidation. Really fruity, yet tart. Taste is the same. Tart and sour raspberries, un-ripe ones, grapes, apples, vinegar and some dry cherries. Leather and canton funk. Smooth carbonation and really refreshing light body. Loads of taste.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear perfect ruby color with light pinknfoam layer. Very Brett like smell with a lot of raspberry. The taste is delightfully sour with a fitting raspberry part. Over carbonated in the beginning, but insanely pleasant, after some of it decayed. Dry and sour fruity aftertaste. This beer is an absolute pleasure to drink.
