theisti (3396) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 22, 2010
12.7 fl oz bottle purchased at The Wine and Cheese Place in St Louis, Missouri. Pour is mostly clear Rose wine, with no head. Really looks like a glass of wine. Aroma is sugary raspberry fruit, along with a natural funk yeast. Fresh, perhaps a bit too sweet, but nice. Taste is bright tart sour raspberry up front, was a bit of surprise following the nose, but a nice surprise. The funk, and barnyard and vanilla oak all are pleasantly mixed in. Tasty stuff. The palate is medium to thin bodied, dead flat, with a bright acidic tart finish which is dry with the funky yeast. Fun beer.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2010
Bottle at Monk’s Cafe. Pours a remarkably clear, bright amber. A bit of pink in the head as well. Nose is sour, raspberries, light bread notes. Minimal funk. Largely underripe berries. On taste, quite sour and bitter. High acidity. no vinegar. Raspberries are there, but not well integrated Interesting, but needs some work...

375ml bottle from WInooski shared with MartinT.
Aroma : Sour and lactic. Very tannic.
Taste : Sour and lactic with nice raspberries. Fruity.
Overall : Nice fruits. I liked the presence of the raspberries. Still a bit too sour and tannic for my taste. The cassis we had just before was better.

deyholla (7590) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 12, 2010
Bottle shared by someone I cannot remember at Sean’s, thanks! Poured a clear bright amber red with minimal head that dissipated quickly and completely. Aroma was full of very sour raspberries with a bit of vinegar coming out in the finish Flavor was similar with sour raspberries and just a hint of vinegar but much less than on the nose.

beerguy101 (5319) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 10, 2010
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.

jdskinns (209) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2010
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.

MartinT (8351) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 5, 2010
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.

Bottle.

Bottle. Pours like Kool-Aid, pinkish red. Nose of tart raspberry, grass, oak and farmhouse funk. Taste of tart raspberry and grassy farmhouse.

angrypirate06 (1387) - Texas, USA - SEP 4, 2010
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.
