4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2011 My first fruit lambic!! Bottle, 37.5 cl. Deep red color, with a small pink head. The immediate aroma is fresh raspberries wrapped in sweet caramel-ish aromas. Sweet lambic jesus this smells good! In my mouth the body is medium to full, I’d say. Flavor is very much like the aroma, with wonderful fresh raspberries with delightful notes of caramel, slightly sour, but with sweet edges. Quickly, as I swallow, the expected sourness really comes through, refreshing and very very very pleasant! The sourness continues into the finish, leaving my mouth full of raspberry flavors, tartness and sour goodness! Wow. There are other flavors here besides the raspberry, but I’m not sure what they are, since I’m relatively new to the world of sour ales, but the raspberry flavors definitely dominate. The stuff in the background makes me think of a barnyard and such, but it’s very faint. Also, hints of lemon.
Overall: I think this is just spectacular! And it’s probably not even the best fruit/raspberry lambic out there! Wow!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
ASPETTO: tra viola e fucsia, limpido, schiuma rosacea, abbastanza abbondante, fine ma non particolarmente persistente. AROMA: forte aroma di lampone, con un retro marcato da lambic. GUSTO: in bocca non decolla affatto. Si sente molto il lampone, un lampone acido, ma il sapore non è ben legato a quello del lambic, per cui si avverte anche una sorta di marcio che stona molto.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2016 Mooi helderrood bier met babyroze schuimkraag. Vineus aroma, ruikt als een goede wijn. Lekker zoet maar zeker niet té zoet. Confituur, framboos, snoepjes. Afdronk beetje droog met héél klein zuurtje. Lekker !!

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
375ml bottle. Pours deep blood red with pinkish head. Aroma is bright raspberry pips and berry pulp. Taste is wonderfully fruity with a smooth, oily mouthfeel, very lightly carbonated. Sourness seems restrained, would’ve liked more of an edge to this, but it’s refreshing and fruity, if a little too slick.
