wickedpete (634) - Lexington Park, Maryland, USA - MAY 25, 2009
2005 vintage, bottled 2007. Dark ruby red body with a short pink creamy head that slowly fades to a mist. The aroma is strongly tart and funky, some hay, dust, vinegar, and rhubarb. A mellow sweet raspberry aroma comes through middle to end. Heavily sour and acidic. Very vinegar like with only slight fruit noticeable in the middle. Finishes with a strong funky sour. I was hoping for a bit more fruit along with the tartness, but this is by far the sourest beer I’ve ever tasted and I love it.

A 750ml bottle at the brewery. 2013 sticker, bottled on 3rd April 2016. Poured into a Cantillon tasting glass. It poured a clear dark ruby colour with a three finger dark pink head that had decent retention and some sparse lacing. Looks so good. Aromas of fruity raspberry, strawberry and some light floral notes. Tastes sour, tart, raspberry, strawberry, oak, apple and light barnyard funk. Dry, light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, this was just so good. Such nice refreshing raspberries and strawberries. Could very well be my favourite fruit lambic! Must buy.

Bottle 2011 Vintage with friends in Brussels. Wow. Barnyard aroma, tart raspberry jam taste with some oak, a perfect sour fruit (lots of fruit here!!!) and funky mix. The best Cantillon fruit lambic? Maybe, better than Blåbær, better than the other Lou Pepes, but I haen’t tried the cloudberry...

Bottle at Cantillon. Pink color. Nice aroma of fresh raspberries, oak and some vanilla. Taste is delicious, with lots of fresh raspberries, mild oak, vanilla, wheat and somekind of awesome smoothness. Amazing lambic.

Bottle at RBSG 2002. Pours a clear amber color with almost no. The aroma and flavor have crazy sour raspberry character, oak, acidic, some citrus, biting, not for someone new to sours.

That’ll be me 20K then @ ChrisO’s. Thanks to ?. One of those ’how the hell have I not rated this?’ beers! Hazy cherry red beer, good pink head. Palate is light and dry, decent fine carbonation. Tart lemony sourness. A little cherry - raspberry tartness that develops a kind of cherry acid. Acid lemony finish. Too sharp for me.
