3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared by Eric at Franks. Pretty sure this one had a decent amount of age on her...probably a bit too much. Aromas and flavor are barn, vinegar, sour raspberry, currants, lemon skin, and acidic jam. Aroma was awesome but the flavor had too much vinegar and light acetone going on. Would like to try again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Cork says 2039, 2009 on label is crossed out. Who knows. Head fizzes away quickly leaving clear red with a few bubbles breaking the surface. No head but very very pretty. Yes, raspberries. A bit stemmy, some damp laundry. Little bit of a vinegary edge to it. The berries themselves seem fairly sweet and mellow, not hairily aggressive. Quite sour with twangy wheat, some pepper and lots of raspberries. Lovely.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL corked & caged Champagne bottle. Bottled Jan 2009
Clear ruby red, holds a dense pink-tinged head.
Aroma is quite funky - hard cheese, barnyard, subtle horse sweat, with jammy raspberry, and touch of oak.
Lean, zingy, tangy, tart rapsberry acidity, lively carbonation.
Has a slightly watery, somewhat oddly yet alluringly tannic, raspberry flavour on the body. But it’s the funky underneath that drives this beer - hay, Parmasean, slight horse, bit of aged red wine vinegar.
Good stuff, not too tart, not too fruity, just enough funk to make it interesting.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2015 Bottle shared by me. Bottled 2009. Clear bright pink with big very light pink head that leaves a beautiful ring in the glad. Looks perfect. The nose is amazing, fresh raspberries with massive barnyard notes. Aroma is about the same; starts with fresh raspberries, goes into hay, funk, horse blanket, straw, lots of wood. Finishes with tart fruits, almonds, berry pits, slight vinegar. Taste is medium sour with medium bitterness. Light to medium bodied with crisp and prickly carbonation. Despite what it says on the bottle this has typical gueuze like carbonation. Fantastic beer, exactly how I like my fruit lambics. And the fruits still hold up despite the age. Great!

Taste perfectly well balanced with raspberries, red currant, sour green apples. Lovely!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to Dice. Loads of funk, oak, and rubber. Not particularly fruit-forward to me on the nose, but makes up for it in the taste. Jammy (like raspberry purée) and assertively, borderline aggressively tart. Medium body, lively carbonation.

750mL shared by diceman. Pops hard. Pours with some head that fades into nothing. Thick dirty pink color. Dry raspberry aroma, some light fecal, tart smelling but not sour and no acetic. Flavor is smooth, lactic unsweet raspberry. Tart dry end. Low acetic, lower acid, tart and dry with fruit essence.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle. At the Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland. 2012 vintage.
Pours hazy orange brown colour with lots of floaters and tiny head.
Sour... I mean sour... aroma with vinegar and mild raspberry sweetness.
Vinegar, tartness, rowanberry and hell of a lot sourness in the flavour.
A bit messy and unbalanced.
