3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375mL thanks to Travlr. Pours a hazy blood orange with a fairly big pinkish head fizzing out quickly with cutting acids. Nose is quite nice- fairly intense like Cantillon Lou Pepe Framboise: speedy raspberry, fresh spritziness, citric, sweet raspberry juice. Taste is sour Warheads/tartaric acid up front. Hugely mouth puckering with salt and tartaric acid. Definitely no acetic here...could use some more lactic fatiness.Tastes nearly identical to Sweet Tarts. Still, a big improvement over the bile acid that was Spontankriek.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle... medium murky blood red, copper tint, light tope head, not much retention but awesome lacing... smells super sweet, candyish, a bit of vinegar, reminds me of a less sweet Raspberry tart... the taste is more restrained, thought this was going to be a sweet bomb, fresh tart raspberry which I really like, a bit of flat metallic finish... pretty good

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(375ml; bottle best by 11/24/20 thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy bright ruby with soapy off-white bubbles and nice lacing. Nose of strawberry, fresh raspberry puree, rhubarb, wet wood, funky barn and a bit astringent. Taste of bitter raspberry, aspirin, mild acidic, strawberry and seeds. Extremely, extremely tart, and I love it! Almost tongue raping in a good way.

Recht starker leicht sauer angehauchter Himbeergeruch. Antrunk himbeerig. Danach sofort sauer einsetzend, wirkt salzig. Mittig reichlich Säure, welche die Himbeernote zurückstellt. Sauerer Abgang (Waldboden). Ist mir zu anstrengend (Säure).

Slightly cloudy reddish with a light pink head. Very sour/tart and dry with a lot of raspberries in both aroma and taste. Very drinkable and refreshing but not that complex.
