3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 10/8/2010. This fruit-lambic pours a raspberry color from a 375ml coked and caged bottle. Little to no head. The aroma is raspberries, malt and tart. A medium to light bodied fruit lambic. The malts are fruity and sweet, with lots of semi-sweet raspberry flavors. A nice tartness to this one, not overpowering, but just enough to let you know its most definitely there. No carbonation at all, which is kind of sad, because this beer would be so much better with some carbonation. As it warms it get a little more tart and a little more juice like. Mouthfeel is full., Finish is clean. Aftertaste is tart.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pinkish, amber color with no carbonation, no head. Aroma is very good, heavy on the sour. Taste is funky with a slight raspberry note. Nothing overwhelming. Very acidic, left a burning, tickling sensation in the back of my throat. Very thin, light body and mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Nameless red fruit peruse through this Lambic’s dusty farmhouse signature, evolving into juicy sourness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-Apart from the fact that it’s headless, the pale red hues of this lambic also disappoints because they do not recall raspberries at all. This looks like diluted pomegranate juice.
-The aroma could have been from any other fruit; raspberries don’t appear to have used in sufficient quantities.
-Carbonation was nearly absent, which increased the ressemblance to fruit juice.
-The Hanssens personality was apparent in the nose, but strangely not as much in the flavor profile where tannins took over.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Enjoyed on a beautiful 70 degree sunny day. Pours with no carbonation. Amber reddish color. Aroma is musty, some faint tartness, raspberry sweetness, and oak. Flavor is big time tart! Nice berry notes, nice acidity and somewhat dry. Great flavor. Hurt by being undercarbonated.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 12.7 oz corked and caged. Pours rose colored with only spotty bubbles for the head. Aroma is extremely sour. Strong, tart berries, lemon juice, vinegar notes, sour fruit, salty sweat, and funky yeast. Taste is surprisingly not as sour. Raspberries, sour fruit, tart, unripened berries, funky yeast, damp earth, and wet wood. Ever so slight sweetness in this. Body is light and essentially uncarbonated but still bone dry and very acidic. Ends with more raspberry notes, tart , unripened berries, funky yeast, damp earthiness, wet wood, sweat, and sour fruit. Yummy but I wish this had some carbonation to it.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Huge thanks to daknole!!! Bottle pours brilliant red with orange tint. Aroma is huge funky raspberry, with mouthwatering lactic acidity. Flavor is extremely well rounded with sweet raspberry being countering by excellent lactic and acetic balance. Even some light bile. Damn good stuff.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Very small pop from the cork and the beer is pretty much flat. Syrupy amber / rose pour; no head. Aroma is some tart fruit and bacteria. Flavor is the same, pretty tart once it was warm. Without carbonation, the palate is pretty wrong, and the bacteria finish almost tastes like it is infected.
