Pours a lovely color of grapefruit juice, amber-red with pink hints and no head at all. Nose has a perfect balance between sour acidity and a zingy, sweet fruitiness of raspberries. Compared to the "Experimental Cassis", the fruit aromas in this one are way more intense, with decent character and complexity to it. Begins with smooth, dough malts, accompanied by incredible fresh, young raspberries, which hit the palate with a sharp sour sting. After this first impression, its refreshing, gentle fruitiness gets unfolded with all its subtle variations dithering between sweet and sour layers, perfectly enhanced by tart bretts. While the fruit flavor remains recognizable on the palate for a long time, in the end it has to make room for the dry, long lasting, sour aftertaste. The sourness is present even on the outside of my teeth, set in motion by a mighty collaboration between sour fruitiness and very tart acidity, leading to a complex, very enjoyable fruit lambic.

Benzai (9802) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2014
Sampled from bottle @ Van Moll Brewpub thanks to Jean Paul. Hazy dark pink to reddish color, virtually no head. Nicely aroma of red fruit and especially raspberry. Taste is very nice as well: a fine mix between sourness and sweet raspberry. Lightly dry, decent body and carbonation. Quite pleasant.

UPDATED: SEP 1, 2014 @ Eddan 14-8-30: en fantastisk doft av hallon. En härlig syrlig smak med fika bärtoner. Syran ligger länge i munnen! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

gunnar (6205) - Sandnes, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2014
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours dirty pink with no head. Lovely raspberry aroma, fresh and meaty straight from the garden,with a note of lactose. Taste is as fresh as supposed by the aroma, very fresh fruity rapberries, tart finish, nice.Lingering, more than accepted.

Clear red. Almost no head. Wonderfully refreshing aroma of mature raspberries. Similar, but highly sour taste and tarty aftertaste.

Shared 375 ml green bottle at local tasting. Colour somewhere between pink and red, no head. Strong and intense aroma of ripe and over-ripe raspberries, also brettanomyces / farmhouse notes. Minimal carbonation. Lovely sour flavour, notes of raspberries and lemons.

ClubGonzo (4562) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle from etresgourmet.be webshop. Pours a hazy orange-hued pink body with no head; this one kinda looks like a fruit juice from the garden more than any kind of beer. The aroma, however, is different: large raspberry notes with loads horsey brett tones, straw, hay, red currant and hints of lemon and citric peel. Taste is tart lemons, raspberry, citric peel, red currants and hints of hay, barnyard funk, cellar mold and faint black currants in the back. Light, dry body, little to no carbonation. Extremely tart and fruity; this fruit lambic "sipper" is pleasant in a slightly masochistic manner - the tartness is strong with this one, but I like it.

Verrassend hoe de frambozen tot zijn recht komen in de afdronk. Heerlijk zuur biertje met lichtroze kleur. Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar.

drpimento (2425) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2014
This is from a bottle that is true years old and I think the quality has been compromised. Poured with no head nor lace And a clear amber. Aroma is yeast tart raspberries. Flavors like aroma acid is strong raspberries come in slightly dry. With missing carbonation can't really give a fair judgment on body. Actually not too bad for its condition. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
