3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 370 ml. Age roughly 1 year piror to tasting. Poured cloudy deep ruby with dark purple highlights and a good sized, rocky, violet coloured head which was mostly lasting. Aroma was of fruit acids with freshly crushed raspberries, cranberry juice, lemon juice and light musty/yeasty notes. Flavor was also of tart fruit acids with tart raspberries, sour cherries, light notes of lemon juice, musty/yeast notes and a dry crisp finish. Light bodied with lively carbonation, a dry/tart mouthfeel, lightly syrupy texture and a good length finish. Very well balanced and unbelievably refreshing.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flasche (25 cl). - Tiefes Rot, kurzlebiger Schaum. - In der Nase wunderbar fruchtige Himbeersüße wie von guter Himbeerkonfitüre. - Im Antrunk fruchtig-spritzig mit vollem, beinahe natürlich wirkendem Himbeeraroma. Süß aber nicht klebrig, gut ausbalanciert durch leicht scharfe, angenehm herbe Säure. Trockener Abgang. Nicht bitter. - Sehr angenehmes Frucht-Lambic mit köstlichem Fruchtaroma und ohne den künstlichen Beigeschmack manch anderer Lambic-Kreationen. Sicher kein Bier im gewöhnlichen Sinn, aber ideal für tagsüber: der minimale Ethanolgehalt von 2,5 % macht sich kaum bemerkbar.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured at tasting. Aroma was bright and berry fruits. Taste was berries, and Belgium yeast. I did not think I was going to like this but it was very nice. The natural ferementation really shines through. This very well can turn on non beer drinkers to craft. Has some sourness to it but it is not powerful, the berry sweetness is the primary flavor.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep red with beautiful pink head. Excellent aroma of fresh raspberries mixed with some fruity brett. Sweet, fruity and bitter mouth feel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste is loads of sweet raspberries, tart brett, acidic citrus and some round malt. Overall: What a beer! The raspberries is incredible well balanced with the sourness and tartness. Very sophisticated and complex.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sweet raspberry aroma, hint of yoghurt/dairy. Deep cloudy red appearance, high pink head. Raspberry flavour is strong and sweet, balanced by the tartness and convict sour taste. even though the raspberry is the driving flavour, the malt and barrel aging still shine through, giving a hint of vanilla. Excellent drop.
