3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: Dark cherry red with a full inch frothy hot pink head which settles pretty quickly to nothing....lots of carbonation in this bad boy
Smell: Hopped out raspberries and" peppery-phenols’ r’ us"...very tart and sour aroma as well..very nice
Taste: Wow can we say very sour and tart raspberry vino...I am not too much for sourness when it comes to lambics....though its quite often the case....but for the style it seems appropriate and fair....just a bit too much....flower pedals...and champagne characteristics also jump out to me
Notes: Pretty nice stuff...lots of depth....just a bit to sour and I couldn’t drink more than one of these

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Tart raspberries and funky wood in aroma, perfectly balanced. NOT syrup like many fruit crap out there. Very tart and dry, limited head so all subtle aromas came through. Taste very tart and dry finish. Perfect.

Bottle from Tanakaya. Poured into a snifter. Pours a clear raspberry red with a huge pink head that dissipates completely. Raspberry, cherry, wood, yeast and some vinegar on the nose. Tart on the palate with some wood as well. Average carbonation with a slight earthiness present. Bone dry finish. Wonderfully refreshing and crisp!

Bottle share courtesy of BuckeyeBoy. Nice fruity nose, raspberries dominate without distracting. Clear pink pour, sweet and sour play well off each other.

Une superbe framboisé à la robe grenat brillante. Le nez est puissant sur la framboise et le lambic, le bouche est droite, nette, le fruit est superbe, la longueur kilométrique et la finale superbement équilibrée. Un régal.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle, around 7 weeks old. Pours a beautiful opaque red body with a pink head. Aroma has pure raspberry juice without the sugars. Very natural and summery. Dry tart taste with more raspberries. More tart than sweet. A very faint hint of something lactic. Finish is mildly puckering. I want to pair it with desserts, especially chocolate cake or brownies!
