I sampled a 355 ml (12 oz.) bottle, which filled the quirky fluted Lindemans glass that I purchased with the beer about two times. The bottle produced a glass of beautiful copper colored liquid and a surprisingly large, but quickly falling off-white head with an unmistakable pink hue. Holding the glass to the light, the beer is crystal clear, and reveals much more of its raspberry content. Of course, there’s no missing its advertised raspberry character right up front. The aroma and taste of this lambic are emphatically “framboise.” This was a bit off-putting on first impression. In fact, before reaching room temperature, this beverage more-or-less resembled a liquid version of a sour raspberry Jolly Rancher. But, with the benefit of a few minutes outside the chilled bottle, the unique flavors produced by the wild yeasts used to ferment this beer really step forward to reveal a curious mix of flavors. There is the raspberry-jam-like backbone, but the sour earthy flavors produced by the yeast balance out any treacly sweetness, while the sugars mellow the sour and wild yeast flavors, particularly those produced by the Brettanomyces strain. In the end, I also picked up some flavors of dark cherry, raisin and oak, but there is very little to remind the drinker that this is beer. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy it. There is a pleasing long dry finish on this lambic, and the clear flavor shift that develops once the beer comes to room temperature make it worth trying again.

Smells very juicy with a bit extra. Taste is very sweet, sticky lips, nice sparkling palate, dark red pour, rich fruit flavour, all good individually but I don’t really enjoy it, kinda thick and not very tart.

Fules (506) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JUN 27, 2016
Kicsi, gyorsan eltűnő hab, vörös szín. Intenzív, málnás illat. Savanykás, édeskés, málnás ízvilág. Könnyed, gyümölcsös, picit fanyar, közepesen szénsavas, de kicsit sok a savasság. Nagyon fincsi, igazi frissítő.

I bought this beer at Paris and I drank it at home in Lausanne. It is an average lambic but it is, in my opinion, an industrial beer, if I compare with cantillon. The body is pink like a syrup. The carbonation is rather high. The taste is sour with syrup of framboise, sugar, the taste is a bit artificial. It is a drinkable one.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2016 Bouteille 25 cl - couleur rouge foncé, pas de mousse, odeur fruitée et sucrée, goűt prédominante de framboise, arriére goűt sucré, on note des autres présence de fruits, agréable męme si je pense qu?elle puisse vite devenir écoeurante ŕ haute dose

Estebanik (640) - Lublin, POLAND - JUN 15, 2016
Piany oczywiście brak. W aromacie sporo malin, ale też zaskakująco dużo takiego pestkowego, niezbyt przyjemnego aromatu. W smaku zalepiajaco słodkie, później robi się kwaśne. Lambik entry level.

PintjeFritz (102) - Baden-Württemberg, GERMANY - JUN 11, 2016
Nice bottle but without information about the malts, hops and drinktemperature. A red beer with a nice head for a Lambic, sweet but not too much, fruity, short finish, average carbonation, ideal for hot summers, (I have 0.375l bottle with batch L:BA20PFR and best-before 20.01.2018)
