2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pour into tulip glass from Cigarette City. Aroma is alternating tart and sweet of cranberries, raspberries, fruit, but more tart than sweet. Appearance is hazy red with minimal sparkle, finger-width off-white foamy head with poor retention and trace lacing. Taste is as aroma--reminds me a bit of cranraspberry drink, though a little more to the tart side. Palate is light bodied with thin texture and soft carbonation, tart finish. Overall, I didn’t expect to like this and pretty much didn’t, though it wasn’t as bad as I thought. I’m just not a big tart guy.

Bottle. Clear ruby pour with a pink head. Tons of raspberries in the nose, some raspberry jam and lactose. The taste is sweet with a low sourness. Refreshing, but a bit too sweet for its abv.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Multiple bottles over the years in the US and Japan. Simple but straightforward sweetened lambic. Nice strong raspberry nose. Sweet and tart raspberry on the palate. Well-carbonated. No funk or oaky notes, sweet on the palate. Finishes with a berry sweetness. Not as good as Boon’s, but still a fun introductory lambic I guess.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red color with pinkish head. Aroma has intense raspberry juice, doesn’t seem too sweet. Taste is sweet and sour with intense raspberry juice, doesn’t seem artificial. Light body with soft moutfeel. Another one from the nice line of Lindemans sweetened lambics. It doesn’t have any lambic funk but it has nice fruit notes.
