FlacoAlto (3881) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 10, 2013
A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a two finger thick, pink tinged head, that leaves a touch of lacing on the sides of my glass. The beer smells strongly of raspberries, seed, skins, pulp and all. This is backed by a tartness that is light behind the raspberry sourness and there is perhaps a touch of mustiness here as well, and perhaps a touch of straw like grain character.

Quite dry, definitely quite tart (almost puckeringly so), the raspberry flavors are quite apparent, though not quite as prominent as they are in the nose. The finish has a hay like, and even cracker like grain / malt character to it, and there is also a certain bitterness / astringency here (raspberry seeds and oak perhaps). Fairly light bodied, definitely quite quaffable, but there is a certain viscosity here that is made up of raspberries and lactic acid slickness.

The raspberry character is very rich and dense, somehow jam-like despite the lightness and dryness of the beer. This beer is certainly not the most complex beer in the world; it is mostly raspberry, with just enough other things going on to not seem overly one-dimensional. Actually fairly enjoyable

blankboy (6632) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2015
[Bottle (375ml) shared with GregClow, jercraigs & mabel -- c/o j&m] Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a small semi-lasting frothy white head. Nice aroma of lightly tart raspberries, light spices, yeast and some lactic notes. Flavour is more tart then the aroma suggests, along with vinegar and spices. Average bodied. Not super complex but enjoyable and really good.

Klimaet (736) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - JUL 23, 2015
Tap @ Warpigs. Pours ruby red with no head. Aromas of vinegar, jammy raspberries, oaky notes, light grassy notes, light funk. Taste is jammy, vinous, oaky, light buttery notes - in a fine way, for some weird reason.

Saeglopur (1110) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 15, 2015
375 ml bottle il Pretesto Beershop, Bologna.
Dark copper, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, white, slightly pink head.
Delicious, complex aroma of oak, sweet-sour raspberries and other berries, barnyard, vanilla, some earthy notes.
Taste is sour, a bit tart, quite dry, with oak, funk, sour raspberries, citrus, grass.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes smooth, sour, dry, wooden, fruity, a bit earthy, also a bit sweet.

Very tasty! Especially the nose is wonderfully manifold, with sweet barrel notes, typical sour notes and lots of fruits. Taste is also very nice, more sour than the nose, but also with lovely oak notes. Overall the best Mikkeller Lambic I’ve had so far and pretty close to my perfect beer of this style.
