4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
it was a wonderfull expierence.
I had it on the tour de geuze and was suprised of it.
Bought a couple of bottles and opened one at home.
It was even better. Nice pink color and raspberry arome.
Taste sourish, raspberry (more then the strawberry and cassis version)

bottle at dakís 8/14/10.
it is about as pretty as a beer can be... kool-aid, raspberry bubble gum color with a pale pink spritzy head.
it smells really tart...not vinegary just fruit... raspberry, grass, flowers, mineral/slate and earth.
the flavor is the same but salivatingly sour.
crisp medium body. crazy dry. crazy good. 7/5/7/4/16

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours crystal clear and very reddish purple with zero head on it. The aroma is sour & not in the most pleasant way. There is some tart raspberry, citrus and vinegar which is fine, but there is a linger household cleaner aspect to the aroma that is odd. Medium / thin body that is quite crisp and refreshing with no carbonation to be found. The taste begins with a nice blending of the sour raspberry, citrus giving it a bite and the oak mellowing it out with smooth woodiness and bits of vanilla. On the finish there is a bit of lemon and spice that come out thatís quite pleasant. The beer seemed off-putting on the aroma, but is quite interesting, complex and enjoyable on the taste. Very nice lambic.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an ever-so-slightly hazed pink-orange into the glass, with no real head nor lacing of which to speak, a bit like a flat soda. The nose is of wild sours, some raspberry, vinegar, fresh green apples. Flavors are very, very sour, of apple, some watermelon, raspberry and cider vinegar notes. It finishes of some barnyard notes, taking a nice detour from the main portion of the palate. The body seems somewhat "silky", but no effervescence in carbonation leaves it slightly watery. It is definitely an interesting take on the lambic, thatís for sure. And for $20 a bottle, Iím glad to have the opportunity to rate it.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a reddish color lambic with almost no carbonation or foamy head. Aroma of sour raspberry with light notes of sweetness with medium barnyard notes is interesting and not as extreme as the cassis version. Taste is a refreshing mix between some tart raspberry notes with balanced sourness and some barnyard notes. Body is about average with almost no carbonation which was expected. This one is drinking very nice with a lot more balanced then the cassis version.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375mL c&c. Pours a flat, clear, orange peach. Rich raspberry, peach, apricot nose loaded with tropical fruit and sour funk. Taste is pretty hot with major acetic spice/acetobacter/vinegar. Feels almost lacerative in high doses- like enamel destroying and mouth tissue damaging. Very "hot" and spicy sour.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by... um... someone from the Carolina crew. Surprisingly clear pinkish orange. Not much if any head. Lots of funk, barnyard, hay, raspberries, and lemon notes. Some watermelon action. Decent acidity. Yum. Wish I could afford more of this.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the 20th Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation. It pours a pink blush colour, with no head or carbonation. The nose is sweet raspberry syrup, rose and wood. The taste is juicy fresh raspberry, juicy apple, tart strawberry, rose and lime, with fairly high acidity in the finish. Very juicy and drinkable stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a bottle at Delilahís Lambic Fest (Chicago, IL). 2010 Vintage. Pours a lightly pinkish red with a faint haze, small ringed whitish head dies to a tiny ring, faint lacing. Aromas are a decent subtle raspberry, touches of fruit skin tannins, light acidity, with some healthy funky brett and hay, horseblanket. A bit smaller on intensity, some dry funkiness. Initial is sweeter slanted, raspberries and a sugary fruit sweetness, with touches of salad dressing, bready malts. Big yogurty lactic quality, fairly sweet as it sours up a bit more on the backend, even then itís more acidic. A bit intense, vinegar grows into the finish as it warms more, as it becomes a bit harsh on the acidity on the throat. Interesting beer, but not a beer Iíd revisit often.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12.7 fl oz bottle. Fairly straightforward, though the balance of funk, sour, and tart aspects to this one make it quite appealing. Pours quite oily, the consistency of a light wine, and mango-burnt orange in color. Wild funk and mixed fruits stand out in the aroma. Raspberries, of course, also grapes, light cherries, light dates, and a minor oakiness. An oily consistency, with a decent mix of tart and funk through out the feel. Again, a rather simple flavor profile with mixed sour fruits (raspberry being the main player, as well as cherries), mild citrus, light herb, and some oaky dark fruits. An enjoyable sour.
