4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Heavy aroma of berries, tart, brettanomyces and acidity.
Turbid/opaque dark orange/red beer with a slight/medium pink head.
Starts medium sweet with berries; ends medium dry and sour with tart, brettanomyces and acidity.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. The aroma is extremely sour, to the extent that it actually costs a point or two. The taste is more in line with what I like and want from this style. Amazing appearance and the palate is great too.

375 mL bottle. Originally reviewed. 10/3/2011.
I chose a glass that holds well over 375 mL, but this thing overflowed instantly. 1:1 ratio of hazy red body and soft pink head. Head retention is great with decent lacing.
Initial acidic aromas with raspberries. Not overwhelming raspberries, but integrated into the acidity. Immediately following is a faint, but recognizable funk. Again, the raspberries do not dominate but seem to blend well. Iím more a fan of funk than tart and I wish the funk came through more.
Taste is like the smell; itís tart initially with raspberry flavors but a definite strong lemon flavor. It blends into a funk that, again, is less intense than the tartness, to my slight disappointment. It finishes dry and tart again, a little intensely.
High carbonation, medium-light bodied, and refreshingly tart. Dry in the finish, which enhances the lightness, although makes it seem a tad astringent.
The raspberries integrated nicely, but brought a strong tartness to the drink. I would have liked more complexity in the funk, but it was too light to identify individual flavors. I am intrigued by this style.

700 ml bottle. Light red coloured with a small white head. Moderate tart aroma of raspberries, green apples, vinegar, lightly sweet, funk and oak. Taste reflects the aroma. Thin body, with a dry texture. And lively carbonation.

From a bottle, at the brewery. Deep, clear, raspberry red. Ring of pink head. Nose has raspberry yoghurt. Raspberry wine vinegar. Some woody, fruit stalk. Taste is dry, and lightly acetic. Dry, cleansing mouthfeel. Strips clean the teeth nicely! Bright, fresh zing of raspberry on the finish.

2015 bottle; Aroma: nice combination of funkiness and sweetness - interesting; Appearance: cherry red pour with pink head that dissipates quickly; Taste: a little more sour than expected, but thatís a good thing; well balanced and pretty complex; Palate: light bodied with tart/sour finish; Overall: delicious. Would get again if available and not prohibitively expensive.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Intense dark pink color with pinkish head. Aroma has really fresh, bright raspberry and a really light lambic funk. Taste follows with the intense fruit flavor, medium tartness, but overall really balanced. This together with the regular Cantillon kriek are probably the best regular fruit lambics you can get.
