3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York. Clear red-orange in colour with a thin dissipating white head, some light but nice lacing. The aroma is rather sweet with lots of raspberries, white sugar, slight tartness, pie crust. The flavour is quite sweet, some added sugars me thinks, lots of raspberries though that this is nice, not overly tart or acidic. Finishes long, sweet, with tons of raspberries. Its a bit on the sweet side for my tastes in lambics, I prefer my fruit lambics to be quite tart and sour.

4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
375 ml bottle from Belgian eshop
Ruby red color, quite lighter color than I remember from the last time and very clear, light pink-purplish head that doesn’t linger. Amazing aroma, sweetish, like any kind of berry jam, mostly strawberry and sour cherry and just a hint of funkiness. Taste is mostly sour balanced with an amazing berry sweetness, really tasty!! Maybe some vanilla(or diacetyl), I’m not sure... Didn’t sense much funkiness. Nice tartness in the aftertastes, always makes me salivate and can’t wait to taste the next sip...
As it get’s warm the aroma is more intense and I can sense a hint of diacetyl(or something similar). I expected a bit more funk but it’s an amazing brew nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with Dave. Garnet hue, medium pink head of fine bubbles that recedes rather quickly. Sweet raspberry juice and corky must in the aroma. Sweet raspberry fruit flavour, natural with a seedy quality, a touch musty, and a touch funky. There is an acidity in the finish, more tangy than sour. A touch sweet for my taste, and lacking a bit in complexity.
