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, Iíd 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 Iím not sure what they are, since Iím 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 itís very faint. Also, hints of lemon.

Overall: I think this is just spectacular! And itís probably not even the best fruit/raspberry lambic out there! Wow!

Cerveja muito frutada. O gosto de fruta é tão intensa que parece um suco. Não vale tomar novamente. Tomei em Bruges. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Kita (1548) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle, 0.25l. Clear ruby color with thin frothy off-white head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of raspberry, citrus and cereals. Taste starts light sweet grainy, follows by sour raspberry and diluted white wine note. Mouthfeel is dry, while bitterness is not present at all. Light body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Very refreshing lambic, although would prefer it slightly sweeter...

Bottle @ Elfoís Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a dark red, almost purple colour, frothy white head. Aroma is very rich jn fruity notes, but still balaced; very good. Taste is medium sweet, quite faint; a bit disappointing, compared to the aroma. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation.

rxeight (1975) - Illinois, USA - SEP 6, 2015
375ml 2013. Rusty dull red. Smells like raspberry, but not good raspberry, like fruit thatís way past prime that you forgot in the fridge drawer and have to throw away. Taste - first thought was this is bathtub wine. Bad raspberry alcohol in a boons farm sort of way, but without the glucose extract sweetness. Not sour at all, despite saying lambic. No thanks.
