2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[ Bottle ][ 1oz ][ Tasting ][ ? ][ Tulip ][ 05.31.15 ]
murky orange-red, oily white cap. Ultra sweet jammy nose reminiscent of Lindemans Framboise or NG raspberry tart without depth, lightly seedy. Sweeter flavor is all sugar, tons of raspberry and absolutely no acid. Refreshing, zesty carbonation, more a fruit beer than a sour.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a red color with a quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is tart raspberry. Flavor is on the sweeter side, but with a tart finish. Pretty good. I’m surprised by the low ratings, but my experience with lambics is very limited.

375ml bottle. Just another sickly sweet fruit lambic, sweet raspberry syrup, all you need to know.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
25cl bottle. Again not much of a head on a dark pink pour. Earthy, even somewhat mouldy nose of older raspberry jam made with a good amount of artificial sweetener and real sugar, dullish. Sweet&sour candy approach towards taste: the tartness is close enough to real raspberry, the sweetness that of cheaper grenadine. Worse than their middling ’90s Kriek, i.e. needs to be drunk even colder. I suggest sorbet/granité consistency.
