3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at The Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma on this is heavily sweet, and fruity with hints of raspberry. There is also a little acetic and lightly lactic funk present, too. Light cheesiness. Very nicely aromatic. The body is a mostly opaque garnet-amber color with a small, light pink head, which is pretty frail. Starts a bit tart, sharp, and acidic, but not overly so. Some raspberries come through in the middle, with more light acidity and sweetness. Finishes with a bit of a wheat-like chewiness present. Nice, fine bubbly carbonation present here. I think this beer came out pretty well, but it just seems to lack the added layers of complexity that the guys in Belgium seem to have. Still a solid beer.

Brownish-red, deep raspberry/currant aroma, barrel tartness with some vinegar. Vinegary, woody, dry, with a fair bit of lacto. Nice stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear ruby red, thin fizzy white head that vanishes quickly. Aromas of raspberry jam, other berries, funk. Taste is tart, nicely sour, a touch of sweet in the front, quite acidic. Body is medium-light. High carbonation giving a tingling mouth. The finish is long and sour with a funky tinge. Not so keen on the funk at the end, otherwise a nice brew.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark bordeaux red color with quickly disappearing foam. The smell promises lambic sourness with substantial amounts of raspberry. The taste is surprisingly heavy on the first sip until the sourness steps in. The raspberries work extremely well with the lambic and even tastes like a mixture of raspberries, blackberries, red- and/or black currant - nice and fruity. The whole taste is accompanied by a fine very present and aggressive carbonation. The aftertaste is very pleasant, quite dry, but rather short and much less dominant than hoped for. Slight drawback is the intense acidity, which is a tiny bit too much.
