17.12.12. Bottle. Small white head, clear orangey-red color. Aroma is a strong, sweet, fresh raspberry; pleasant. Taste is sour (but not very) and some raspberry. Mouthfeel quite smooth and a medium length sour and slightly bitter aftertaste. Overall, not too shabby.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Beer Mania (Brussels, Belgium)
Pours with a quickly receding head. Aroma is quite sour, with hints of raspberries. Color is a relatively light red. Taste is everything that I hope for in a lambic. Very sour, but clearly a frambroise.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of fresh raspberries with just a touch of funk. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a small pinkish head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet raspberry. The finish has light-moderate tart raspberry with some light funk, wood, and dust. It?s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
37,5 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu. Rated on 07.08.2010
Aroma has raspberries, some fruit sugar and a leathery feeling. Flavour is somewhat sweet with raspberries, some fruit sugar and distant woody notes. Feels leathery in mouth too. Too sweet to be a ’true’ lambic but not bad still.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home (Noel Cuveliers) 26/12/12.
Pours a slightly obscured raspeberry claret with no head.
Nose is a big fresh raspberry assault, some sugars in the background.
Taste of slightly tarte raspberries, berry fruits, a little sugar, some bitterness and sour notes, touch of musty woodness.
Medium bodied with fairly soft carbonation with a little fizz, crisp dry berry finish.
Ok - not quite tarte/sour enough for my liking.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. It's too dark to see any prints on the bottle. Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland.
Clear red (seems to be in this lighting) colour with average sized pink head.
Ripe raspberries, candy sweetness and sugar in aroma. Surprisingly authentic raspberry aroma. Flavour is sourness, tartness, berries, raspberries and raspberry bushes. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from CAMRA beer festival. Colour is clear red with some amber tinging, and a lovely foam white head. Nose is raspberry juice, syrupy fruit, fresh raspberry bitter, minerally, some lambic toasted cheesiness. Taste is bitter raspberry, sour green apple limbic, subtle syrupy sweet fruit. Mainly nice a bitter which is just how I like by fruit lambics. Great balance and a nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma is wild and sweet, but metallic. Tate is similar, with a sweet element but also an antiseptic taste. Feels a bit watery too, but luckily a little dry.
