3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
04.01.13. Bottle, 2011. Foam is pink, quite thick, quickly gone. Clear berry red color. Aroma is sweet, some oak, raspberry, very refreshing! Tastes sour (very), with a dash of raspberry. Med. carbonation, smooth mouthfeel though. Aftertaste is sour, a bit bitter, very long and a bit acidic/burning.
Not a fan of this one exactly, but it’s certainly refreshing and quenching. Lots of flavor for 5% ABV, that’s for sure.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle side by side with Kriek at Brasserie Cambrinus in Beuges. Pours bright pinkish red with a very small pink head that recedes quickly. Plenty of dry tartness on the aroma with light raspberries supplementing lots of funky acidic Gueuze notes. Flavor follows very tart and funky--much more so than Kriek--with a beautiful supplement of lightly sweet and tart raspberries that don’t overwhelm. Light bodied, very dry and crisp, plus carbonation. This is exactly how a raspberry lambic should be.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
75cl bottle from 2010. Dark red with airy a lightpink head. Aromatic wood and berries. Slight strawberry hints. Sticky to the palate, glass border and mouth! Strawberry taste perfectly complementing the scent, citric acid sticks to the teeth and full palate of soury fruits like rasp, apricot, forest fruit. Strawberry fraise frenzy all the way. Especially in the last residue pour that exhibits the latter in a fuller extent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 Pours a clear rose colour with some great carbonation.
Aroma is floral, fruity, raspberries, grassy and sour.
Taste is a lovely gentle balance of the sourness and some sweet raspberry flavour. Leaves the sensation as if raspberries are on your tongue, gentle sour, sweet and bitter balance, gets more interesting each sip.
Goes down smooth, slightly warm, medium bodied.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Les lambics, ne sont pas trop mon truc, les fruites non plus.
Et bien le melange des deux est vraiment interressant et somme toute agreable.
Le fait de ne pas ajouter de sucre y est pour beaucoup. Seuls les aromes (et le sucre naturel) du fruit viennent agrementer et contrebalancer l’aigreur du lambic. Et le resultat est plutot surprenenant.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottled 9/11/2013 bottle opened 21/08/14
Red/pink pour with fast vanishing white pink head. Aroma is strong strong funk (almost unpleasant), sour, berries. Taste is less funk with more raspberry character and berries sweetness, taste is not as complex as other cantillon crafts.
Mouthfeel is nice with a bubbly texture. Sour is strong but maybe it will ease with time.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Clear pink-red with a quickly diminishing white fizzing head. The aroma is fresh raspberries, that reminds me of picking buckets full of them at my parents at Christmas time (Tasmania, summer christmas!). The flavour is perfect--tart raspberries, with plenty of acidity. And yet the flavour that lingers and coats the lips is sweet. Slightly vinegary, and dry, with an impression of grapefruit also.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Akkurat, October, 2013. Pours beautifully deep hazy reddish pink with a small pink quickly settling head that leaves a lid on the surface. Aroma of fresh, sour red berries, raspberries foremost, dried flowers, wood and a light funky tone. Taste is sour and tart, raspberries, a slight nuance of roundness balances up the tartness, a dry and sour finish with red berries and minerals. Medium to full body, medium carbo. Nicely done.
