3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml bottle, from a local Total Wine. Because my mom really likes framboise, I brought it over to my parents place to try as a semi-birthday gift. Pours quite nicely, with a clear red, light purple color - check. Pink head - check.
Aroma is not nearly as raspberry as I had hoped. Some funk in there, but not overtly sour or tart smelling. Flavor isn’t so much tart, as funky. There’s some light raspberry in there, touch of acid perhaps. Overall, hoped for a bit more in this one, it’s good but wasn’t nearly as fruity or tart as I was hoping it would be.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from a 12.7oz bottle. Mostly clear pinkish red color. Thin bubbly white head. Couple dots of lace. Very nice big raspberry aroma. Lightly spicy. Bigger sour taste, light sweet. Lighter body. Lightly sticky texture. Lighter carbonation. Easy drinking, pretty refreshing and tasty. Solid raspberry lambic.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
En plein sur la ligne de l’acidité, rusticité versus le côté confiture plus sucré, belle présence en bouche adéquatement aérienne, simplicité et buvabilité en pleine symbiose.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle @ cabin. Bought from Drink Shop, Tallinn. Totally smells and tastes like lambic. Not bad at all. I wanna try some more this spontan series from Mikkeller so could know what kind of beer these are at the end :-)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle. Hazy pink body with a big beige head. Aroma of raspberries, candy and light funky. Flavor is refreshing sweet and sour acidic raspberry and other sour red berries. Medium body and fruity acidic aftertaste. Kind of nice, but not among the great classic fruit lambics.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours wine red in color with a small pinkish head. Cherries and sweet marzipan in aroma. Slightly sour notes as well. Sour cherries, some light, but very subtle notes of vinegar though. A bit light despite the quite high abv. Tasty nonetheless.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
pours hazy medium dark golden, red-pink tint, with a nice very light pink cap, some retention. fresh raspberries, cheese, leathery bretts, lemon, bit of spices - cinnamon, citric and lactic acidity mostly. bright carbonation, light body, dry leafy herbalness and slightly astringent finish. slightly different raspberry lambic and definitely in the brussels league.. much enjoyed!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear red with pink smallish head on top. Sweet raspberry scent, some stingy white wine and sour yeast. For like an second there is sweet raspberry and then it goes very sour. Yeast dominates the flavors. Medium bodied with not that much carbonation, but nice to drink. Pretty damn good.
