Has a decent, foamy head, with a clear light-ruby color. Smells of sweet, ripe raspberries, sugar and tart hints - reminding me of raspberry marmelade, which got a sour note to it. Tastes actually not as sweet as the nose promised, due to an unexpected high carbonation and a watery middlepart. Begins quite fruity, centered around raspberry marmelade, with a gentle, refreshing sourness, drying out the tongue. Finishes with both, a subtle sour acidity and a sweet fruitiness, while the overall impression remains, that this beer is a bit too watery and sweet for this style.

bought in amsterdam, tis a mere fruit beer, nothing really lambic here. Just a jammy fruit beer with some vinegar added. Whoop de freaking doo.

Nische (1115) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2014
Deep red with a small head. A lot of rather sweet raspberries in the aroma. Also some light notes of barnyard. Also a lot of raspberries in the taste, but not as sweet as in the aroma. Dry with a light tartness. Refreshing and pleasant to drink.

Bottle acquired from La Cave a Bulles in Paris. Poured in my hotel room in Antwerp. Pours a deep reddish pink color with a small, quickly receding, pinkish white head. Aroma is lots of sweet, sweet raspberries, just a hint of tartness, a little bit of medicinal notes but not bad. Flavor is lots of very sweet raspberry, but this still has the expected funky sour gueuze in there that puckers you up. Returns to very sweet raspberry on the palate, with just a hint of medicinal note. Light to medium bodied, medium plus carbonation. Overall the raspberries could be dialed back a bit here to let the funky gueuze shine through. But overall not bad at all.

Davros (2229) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 28, 2014
Pours ruby-tinted copper with a pink-tinged head. Nose shows authentic raspberries with a little funk in the background. Flavours focus on sweet raspberry jam at first followed by a pronounce, balancing bitterness. Perhaps just a little on the sweet side overall. Nice moderately high carbonation works well.

Cimbasso (328) - - AUG 25, 2014
This lambic-style pours bright pink. Strong raspberry taste. Not quite as sour as the Girardin Kriek (cherry) version not sweet either. Has a biting dryness without the astringency of the Kriek. Could be refreshing when served chilled. It does not have the ’wild’ tastes of some lambic beers.
