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, 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!

Great initial smell of raspberry but has a surprisingly light finish. Ruby pour with good pink head and lacing. Some light citrus. Light tang on finish but generally a little empty. Light palate. Bottle from 2013.

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, wouldíve liked more of an edge to this, but itís refreshing and fruity, if a little too slick.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle. Slightly hazy purple color, with a small, pinkish head. The nose is brilliant raspberry, some yogurt and light lacto funk, cheerios, and lemon zest. Sweet and very fruity, with a smooth, easy tartness. Light body, champagne bubbles, silky, and crisp. This is a nice, super fruity lambic, with good, mellow funk. Not very complex or aggressive, but easy and tasty.

Ruby red colour. Thin white head. Raspberry jam in the aroma. Raspberries at first. Sweetness. Raspberries again. Quite sweet in the end. Raspberry taste comes out nicely, but there is no complexity. Too sweet.
