3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Classic framboise with thinnish, off-white head and dark orangey red robe. Lots of rewarding lambic funkiness in the nose but in an elegant way, drenched in loads of fresh strawberries, woody, vinegary, lemony notes, barnyard, ’wild’. Tart taste teeming with fresh fruit, very fresh and crisp, bit funky, no disturbing artificial sweetness, long and complex, woody lambic finish. Authentic.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear red with a pink tinged head. Aroma of jammy raspberries, wood. Lots of berries - sweet, a little tart, not much of that pungent hairiness you sometimes get, very modest funk, dry and woody finish. Pleasant enough.
