0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Terrible! Completely ftat and acidic to the point of being undrinkable. It is almost to the point of not being able to smell it. Rancid and supertart. Not a beer, more like a chemistry concoction gone wrong. Stay away!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very flat, but a nice clear pink color. Aroma is very sour, vinegar, flavor is meaty, sight raspberry, very tart. Would be better if it was not flat.

was saddened when i picked up the bottle and saw it was empty, turned it upside down and got a few drops- thank goodness i have good friends and they let me sneak a sip of there glass and let me get a quick write up .. . pours a deep pink tan .. light to medium foam, light spots of lacing .. . light funk, sweet-tarts, and raspberry .. touch of funk/tartness on the tongue .. pretty good but i wanted more sourness .. . . Youíd better not kill me, man, Iíve got shit to do tomorrow!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Rose gold in colour with fleeting spritzy carbonation. Somewhat caustic aromas of raspberry, lemon, nettles, funk, and barrel. The raspberry has really dropped out in the mouth, leaving notes of lactic acid, mozzarella, and lemon. A bit of an odd mouth coating texture, along with some acidic sharpness on the palate. This one didnít really work for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Pat, thanks man. Pours a somewhat cloudy red color with a small white head. Some funky notes with more aggressive berries and sugar. A thin flavor of dominant funk and oak, some tartness, lighter fruit. Quite nice. Drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Raspberries in the aroma, as well as an off-aroma, possibly from skunking in the green bottle. The flavor is intensely tart, bordering on sour, with only a mild tempering of sweetness. The sourness in this was stronger than several other lambics, it wasnít bad but a bit too one-dimensional.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375 mL bottle. Pours a completely clear reddish peach color with just a touch of carbonation. The aroma is fresh raspberry, lots of obvious oak character, smooth lactic character, very mild funk, a touch of spiciness; itís literally mouthwatering. The flavor is a nice balance of funk and fruit with just enough lactic acidity to keep the palate crisp. The finish is smooth and semi-dry, and the aftertaste is where the raspberry shines through. Iím really enjoying this one. Paired with goat cheddar.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
375, corked and baled. Pours a bright pink, but cloudy. No head or lace. Funky fresh berry nose--pretty poopy along with the great berry-fields-in-the-sun quality of the fruit note. Watery light still body. Mostly fruity with a bit of funk on the mid palate. Clean finish. Could be a lot more dimensional, and the juryís out on the barnyard quality being a positive addition in this case.
