stangger (619) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle from The Beer Store in Southampton, PA. Might be flat - no pop at all when uncorking. Cloudy golden/orange pour. funky yeast aroma. Taste is sour warheads, extreme mouth-puckering tartness; raspberry is quite understated. A sour explosion.

Bov (11456) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 11, 2016
@Lambiczoon - hazy reddish-orange beer with no foam; cheesy with notes of vinegar, barnyard and raspberries; good malt backbone, hugely sour, low carbonation, juicy, dry and long "animal" finish with notes of cheese, hay and raspberries - huge !

Hermod (5452) - Vantaa, FINLAND - APR 9, 2016
375ml bottle. Vintage 2014. Poured deep amber, clear, almost no head. Whoa, very tart stuff. Funky, some raspberries, wood. Vinegary notes as well. Complex. Intensely dry and tart. Raspberries more evident in the dry finish.

beer_est_deus (1057) - örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2016
Hel klar, ljust gyllene bärnstens färgad, utan skum och man känner bara kolsyran lätt på tungan. Doft: Äppelkällare, övermogen frukt, funk, skogshallon, vått gammalt trä, krut. Smak: Som doft -krut + malt, jäst.

Mesjasz (698) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 14, 2016
Bottle sample at Chmielarnia. Nice red color and pink head. Aroma of raspberries, leather, barnyard and vinegar. Taste is strong sour, very harsh, vinegar. Flavor of wine vinegar, raspberries, jam, funk. Hardcore stuff :)

markextrae (3131) - 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 (1721) - 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 (10509) - 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 (4354) - Oslo, NORWAY - 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 (4521) - 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 (1437) - Portland, Maine, 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.
