markextrae (3801) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 9, 2016
bottle, Poured a light red to orange colour with a slight white ring. Aroma of tart raspberry, funk, citrus, horseblanket funk, dry bretty funk and a hint of cinnamon. Flavour is heavy acidic really heavy, jawbreaking sour. one of the most sour lambic beers

bluejacket74 (1830) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAR 5, 2016
375 ml bottle, bottled April 2012. Served in a Prairie lambic tumbler glass, the beer pours a clear amber/orange color with no head at all. No lacing, either. The brew smells like raspberries, grainy malt, earthiness and some vinegar. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there is also an acidic cheesy funkiness noticeable. It has more of a tart cheesy/funky/earthy flavor than a fruity one. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit slick and has low carbonation. I wish the raspberry showed up more in the flavor of this brew. Maybe I should have drank this one fresher. However, I’ve only had the bottle since October 2015 so that’s my fault. With that being said, I didn’t have any problems finishing the bottle so it wasn’t too bad!

Ferris (12674) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Huge funk and raspberry notes. Clearish, oily orange with almost no head. Very tart, raspberry and some funk. A little acidic with a very clean finish. Nose is much more complex than flavor but still quite nice.

visionthing (4772) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 18, 2016
37,5cl bottle shared by Arve_Christian - thanks a lot. Pinkish looking without much head to speak of. Fruity and funky aroma with lots of raspberries, some wooden notes and barnyard. Solid acididty in this one! Sour and intense with nice raspberry flavour. A bit too much acididty perhaps, but certainly refreshing.

Arve_Christian (4792) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2016
On bottle from Vinmonopolet Aker Brygge a while back. Pink reddish color, no foam and low carbonation. Medium aroma intensity of raspberries & some stable. Intense sourness which dominates the beer almost totally- except for some flavours. Still enjoyable- but there is a limit to how much you can have ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JBPortland (1488) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2016
375ml bottle pours flat murky pink. Nose is high acid, musty earth, some light oak, faint pink lemonade. Taste is extreme throat burning acidity, hints of notes from the nose but hard to taste anything beyond burning and nail polish. Horrible.

Hanssens Lambic Experimemtal Raspberry 6% Next lets go for the other Belgian. It pours an interesting orange-pink I've never really seen before in a beer but has me thinking wine cooler. The aroma is candied berries and woodsy oak, it reminds me of grenadine.  Medium-light bodied it is very acidic and tart. Berries, nutty almond, sour patch candies and salty. Wow, this is some sour salty raspberry goodness. Incredibly tart but really damn good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ciocanelu (1302) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 26, 2016
Intense orange color with no head. Aroma is intense on the funk and tart fruit. Taste follows with sharp sourness, very acidic, farmhouse funk, intense house made wine notes, overripe fruit, musty cellar, hay, cabbage. Light, acidic and dry mouthfeel. It has intense lambic characteristics but it’s way over the top, it lacks drinkability.
