3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light hazy soft red color (brick-red) with small pinkish head. Very refreshing raspberry aroma with touches of unripe prunes, bergamotte and mirabells. also a faint earthy and barnyard accent in the nose. Taste is to my taste well balaced, the sourness is crisp and dry. The body has a good roundness with accents of fresh crumble cakes with soft custard cream and topped with fresh raspberries and jam of bergamottes. In the afthertaste the faint woody and forrest soil accents are cominig up. The finish is dry with an elegant roundness.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2008 A Mes rate: Bottle from the Belgian Belly.
I must be honest right away and say I was expecting more from this one. That said it is very good stuff all the same. Where is the sour funk and barnyard from the wonderful kriek? So far, and I am sure this will change, the best framboise I have had is the Boon. This was not quite as good. I am quite sad. Ok doom and gloom over. All said and done, it’s a fruit beer, tastes great, lovely framboise nose to finish. Very nice but not genius

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2006 Bottle. Fresh raspberry and yeast aroma. Deepred color with medium head. Sweet raspberry flavor initially with a sour finish. Nice fruit lambic that isn’t overly sweet and still has lambic characteristics.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 Couleur rougeâtre vers la prune avec des reflets oranger. Belle mousse blanche légèrement taché de brun. Nez marqué de framboise mi-réel mi artificiel suivi d’une faible présence d’acidité. Deuxième nez de bois moisi et presque de poissons. L’acidité en bouche n’est pas très marquée et les flaveurs sont plus proche d’un vieux fromage bleu et des graines de moutarde que du citron. La texture est vers le crémeux. Intéressant pour son originalité quoique les flaveurs soient un peu trop dans le département du moisi à mon goût et que l’acidité ne soit pas assez franche.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 37.5 cl bottle, bbe Jan 08. Bright vermillion, sparkling, rich white head. Raspberries dominate the aroma; some bread and raisins, too. The taste begins sweet with a lot of raspberry but quickly goes into dry, sourish, woody notes which give a mild aftertaste. Fine stuff, well a bit mainstream.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle - cork date July 2003. I’ve had it for over a year. Soft. I find this very pleasant and very refreshing because this is not too sour or sharp. Indeed, the softness (for a lambic) is very soothing. And there is a faint sweet balance to keep things in harmony. Woody, clean, delicate and with gentle citric notes. Woody, aged raspberry aroma - quite warm and seductive. I like this a lot. Easy and pleasant to drink. Full of flavour. Good mouthfeel. Nice. Chrissie loves it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled: LIght hazy red coloured. Dense beige lasting head. Head has a light red touch. Raspberries and a light sourness in the aroma. NIce. Flavour has a pleasant sourish fruitsweetness. Wood and tart note, though not as obvious as in other lambics from this fine brewery. Quite refreshing and cleansing. A nice treat.
