UPDATED: OCT 24, 2003 My first lambic, liked it a lot more the second try. I guess it's just different from what I've tried so far. It's still awfully sweet to me, and I wonder if the rest of them are this sweet too? I guess I'll have to try.

This is my first lambic and my 50th rating. Kinda special. Initial smell of rasberries and some beer qualities. Tastes the same way with a tart sour ending. Dries your mouth in the end. not a bad first lambic, but i expected more beer taste.

A tart raspberry, sweet and powerful. A great choice for a first lambic. Light a fruity aroma lets you know what you are in for...

My first lambic. A winner. Freshly picked rasperries. Complex. Drink copious amounts of this stuff and be happy.

I really have difficulties when it comes to classifying this as a beer, A fresh fruit drink a hot summerday yes, but to call it a beer ....?

I like the deep cherry-red colour of this lambic, but the aroma and flavour seemed too much like a wine cooler to me. Not that I don't like wine coolers... Overly sweet, this is an after-dinner, sipping drink, suitable for desserts and such, but it wears old, pretty quick.

My first lambic rating. I'm still unsure as to whether this style should be considered beer. To me it's as much a wine or an apertif as a beer. But, I guess it has to be called something and the ample overflowing head makes it distinctly not wine. Raspberry notes waft between reminiscences of Berliner Weiss. Ruby red in color with THICK pink foam that would not stop foaming. I must have lost a third of the bottle from both the initial cork pop and the first couple of glass pours. I poured enough beer into a glass to fill it maybe a third of the way, and the entire thing turned into pressurized foam, overflowing the mouth of the glass. Be careful with this one! Sweet and sour flavor, kind of like sour patch kids candy. Very good, but is it beer?

JK (4522) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 21, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2003 On Tap. Dark red. Strong raspberry aroma. Flavor is of raspberry and sweet, but the finish is a little sour. The first lambic I really liked.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 18, 2003
75 cL bottle, tulip glass, 50 degrees. Large, foamy, frothy, pink head is slow to diminish. Deep ruby body is murky from a dense collection of tiney to medium particles. Grain malt (light); tons of raspberries. Hard to really detect other aromas, but the aroma is both more sweet and more sour than pure raspberry juice. Nothing really lambicy in the aroma. Heavily sweet, lightly sour flavor becomes a heavily sweet, moderately sour finish. There's only a hint of this being a lambic in the flavor. Good lacing. Medium-heavy body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: a good desert "beverage", an average beer.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2009 (Bottle) Pours a deep ruby body with a small pink head. Strong raspberry aroma. Great flavored and very potent raspberry flavor. Wonderful for an after dinner drink.
