3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very obvious raspberries in the aroma, in addition to some brett funk and lime juice. The taste follows the cue, being mostly sweet and sour. Very pleasant and fruity. Medium mouthfeel with discreet carbonation and a fruity finish. A fine thirst-quencher.

Bottle at home. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a white head. Sweet aroma of raspberries. Taste is sweet, turning to sour, with a sour after taste. Not as fruity tasting as I had expected.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice lambic based fruit beer. Fresh and a bit sour, but not nearly as sour as Girardin’s geuze or kriek. Decent.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from 2012. Very intense and fruity raspberry-aroma in the nose. Even nicely sweet. The beer starts nicely sour, not too much. Light in body. In the mainpart there is some horse-blanket, nice dry and not too sour raspberry aroma. Also some grain. The aftertaste is medium, moderate sourness and light horse-blanket aroma. Very smooth and mild. The aftertaste is a nice and smooth mixture between horse-blanket sourness and dry raspberry.
--> Very nice and smooth fruit-lambic. Round and typical in aroma. But for my taste this one could be a bit more intense - both the lambic as well the raspberry. --> 13/13/12/12

Pours a deep ruby colour with a big white head that disappears after a little while. Aroma of sour strawberry, quite sweet. Flavour is medium sour strawberry some sweerness, some touches of peach. A bit watery mouthfeel, soft carbonation. A very okey fruit beer.

Bottle at Chez Leontine, Gent.
Pours clear pink with a White head.
Drinkable, sweet and fruity. Would probably pair up nice with a heavy chocholate desert.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
37.5 cl, bb C X 2014 -- Tiefes Altrosa mit bräunlichen Reflexen. Üppiger feinporiger hell-beiger Schaum. Betörendes, intensives sauberes Himbeer-Bouquet. Auf der Zunge herbe, etwas aggressive Säure, welche die Frucht und die süssen Noten zu stark dominiert. Trotzdem zweifellos ein grosses Bier.
