Pours a clear orange with no head so of course no lacing. Aroma is actually not too bad with some raspberries soaking in acid and some light sulfur notes in the finish. Taste is bad in my opinion, pure acetic acid. Maybe some really light fruity flavors but I must be trying too hard. Body was medium, texture really oily. Of course this is a lambic and not a gueuze, but the lack of carbonation hinders drinkability. Over the top acetic, I wouldn’t drink again even if my life depended on it.

mcberko (6300) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
375mL bottle, pours a hazy bright orange amber with just a few bubbles of head. Aroma brings out lots of raspberries, light acidity and low funk. Flavour is very bizarre, with lots of puckeringly sour raspberries, high acidity, and moderate vinegar. Extremely acidic and quite sour, way too much so to be very drinkable. Quite ascorbic and acidic - not to my taste.

Thanks Cahizzle. Nose is big barbyardy and raspberry . Flavor has a huge tart raspberry character, lactic acid, very tart and delicious. Very good lambic.

hopscotch (9100) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle... Opens and pours as flat as a pancake - clear and amber with no head. The fruity, funky bouquet is a fusion of raspberry, sharp cheese and horseblanket. Medium-bodied with basically no carbonation. The flavor is fruity, funky and SOUR as freaking Hell. There’s manure here, which wouldn’t normally be a negative for this style, but it leans a little closer to raw sewage than I’m comfortable with. Sour, lightly astringent, dry finish.

crazyvin (1933) - New York, USA - NOV 26, 2013
A slightly opaque orange amber body that lacked any kind of head and carbonation was minimal. Aroma hand a nice sweet note from raspberries upon opening. However the more tart notes of the lambic came through. Nice wild yeast presence. Flavor was mostly tart, some nice raspberry notes rounded out the flavor. Finish was fruity and carbonation was almost no-existent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

375 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear red with no head. Aromas of straw, raspberry, barnyard funk and a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry tart finish. Flavors of straw, raspberry, light barnyard and a hint of citrus with a smooth dry tart lingering raspberry finish.

lesifflebiere (1249) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2013
Boisson rose-orangée à l'effervescence nulle, avec un fort parfum d'acidulé. Les framboises complètent le portrait. En bouche, très sûre, mais étonnamment, pas à l'excès. Les fruits rouges occupent l'arrière-scène, rendant le tout un peu plus "bonbon", mais elle demeure drôlement agressive. Un lambic assez surprenant, plutôt complexe, très savoureux, mais avec toute cette puissance, on perd la subtilité du chêne. Tout de même un bon exemple du genre. 3.6

DSG (5731) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy orange color with no head. Amazing aroma with raspberries, barnyard, cobwebs, oak and some lemony notes. Delicious flavor, very sour, with raspberries, lemon, oak, a bit of vinegar and sweat. Finishes a bit astringent. Medium-bodied, flat mouthfeel. Really sour with acidity that punches you in the throat. Love it!

Bottle. Golden in color with white head. Taste vinegar and raspberries and lemon. Aftertaste of sour vinegar. Decent sour beer

Pours orange slightly red with no head, totally flat, aroma of raspberries, brett, green tea, some wheaty tones, flavor is very sour and acidic, almost totally flat, yet very crisp, raspberries, lemon juice, barnyard and manure, 3 fonteinen kind of bretty character but less complex, medium bodied, great
