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 wasn’t bad but a bit too one-dimensional.

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; it’s 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. I’m really enjoying this one. Paired with goat cheddar.

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 jury’s out on the barnyard quality being a positive addition in this case.

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2015 12.7oz bottle in a flute. Pours light pinkish and golden with a white head. Aroma of raspberry, sourness, cheese, and a little maltiness. Flavor pretty good for a lambic. Very sour. Very bubbly. An interesting beer. EDIT: Tried again and liked a lot more now.

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)

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 that’s quite pleasant. The beer seemed off-putting on the aroma, but is quite interesting, complex and enjoyable on the taste. Very nice lambic.

bubbleflubber (2131) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2011
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, that’s for sure. And for $20 a bottle, I’m glad to have the opportunity to rate it.
