Bottle sample at a sour tasting at Noam’s office. Many Many thanks DSG. Pours a deep burgundy with a pinkish medium head, aroma of raspberry, brett, moderate sourness, leaves, persimmon skin, flavor is amazing with great acidity, leaves wetness, fruit of the forest, lemony, tangy, clean with a nice aftertaste, medium to full bodied, really great.

750, corked and baled. Wow, N, thank you so much for this. Pours a cloudy dark crimsony pink with minimal pink froth settling. Bright raspberry nose, intensely fruity and fresh and redolent, very present and dimensional. Minimal interference to the fruit; there’s light ferment sharpness coming in but otherwise the berries and crystal clear and pleasantly sweet without being cloying the way only real fruit can be. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Light oiliness. Bright tangy sweet juicy raspberries across the mid palate, washing into a crisp light refreshing finish. Wonderful.

Murky burgundy, no head. Smells of vinegar and raspberry, vanilla, cheesy hops, a slight bit of charcoal, dirty socks. Taste is a mild to medium fruit/candy sour, a little vanilla, tart raspberry. The aged hops are buried a bit under the sourness and acidity. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a hazy raspberry red with little head or lacing. Aroma is tart with some funkiness and woody quality. Taste is tart with raspberry, some funk and cheesiness and a bit tannic in finish.

Hoprider (311) - DENMARK - FEB 21, 2016
Pours byrgundy deep pink or ruby red with no head. On the nose I get the sweetest and richest raspberries emaginable. Sour, ripe garden raspberries made into jam, small hints of something salty, light whifs of forrest berry yoghurt and of course bretty underlying lambic. One of the nicest and fullest fruit noses of any beer I’ve come across. Intense fruityness in the taste with a good sour kick. All in all packing a helluva punch, ballanced by perfect oak. Full almost oily mouthfeel. The aftertaste lingers and in the same direction as the taste. Intensely fruity, intensely sour. Masterpiece!

Bottle 2015 himmeriget. Pours red with no head. Aroma of tarty raspberry, funky, fruity jam, light barn, very tart, light yeasty. Taste is rather tarty, fresh berries, quite funky, rather thin body, with little to none carbonation, but overall a nice experience.

Une bouteille partagée avec SlovakSniper. 18/06/2014...06/2024. C’est dure à croire que cette bière est la meilleure de son genre au monde. Elle a bien sûr un goût de lambic et de framboise, mais la texture est mince, elle n’a à peu près pas de gaz carbonique et se rapproche plus du vinaigre de framboise que des meilleures lambic aux fruits. À des lieux d’une Lou Pepe Framboise.

UPDATED: FEB 26, 2016 Bottle bought DEC/2015, consumed, JAN/2016: Dated 2014. AROMA: Intense, subdued Brett, APPEARANCE: Pinkish, pinkish head. Medium carbonation. TASTE: With all due respect, for the money one would expect the utmost incredible beverage and I’m not saying it isn’t exceptional. However, I just felt that when you hold a beverage with such high regard it’s not easy to meet the expectations of the imbiber. OK, so it was like drinking raspberry jam, however quite sour. PALATE: Imagine slightly watering down raspberry jam, thick consistency, cloying. Decadent. OVERALL: Going to extremes does not a good brew make. Yes, I’m glad to have tried it but going mad and adding ridiculous amounts of fruit isn’t going to make things taste better, however I do get the feeling that there is a pressure on the brewery to go to such lengths. All fans of the brewery and style should certainly try it once though it’s not an something I will crave and I see why it’s so limited.

JohnnyJ (5262) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle, 2011 and 2014 vintages. Deep purple pink pour, with a white pinkish head. Huge raspberry, sour, puckery, seedy raspberry jam, hay, barnyard funk, lemon, and yogurt. Good, but is this really the highest rated fruit lambic? I would like to try it again :)

SlovakSniper (4610) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 17, 2016
(Date de mise en bouteille: 18/06/2014). Rouge sans mousse. Nez très fruité, bien acide, très framboise. Goût très lambic, très et/ou trop acide, un tantinet de finesse aurait été bienvenu. Bouche sans bulles. Finale aigre à la puissance 10. Difficile à boire. Je ne comprends pas la folie qui entoure cette bière.
