3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
As soon as I started pouring I was struck by the raspberry jam aroma. It clued me in that this one wouldn’t be the sour lambic that I wanted but I can’t deny the appeal of such an aroma. The appearance was grand. All dark and stuff with one of those huge heads that makes a column in the middle and then collapses on himself. Alas, this is just a decently made but overly sweet raspberry soda lambic. I sort of like them but I don’t really find them satisfying. I can’t deny that there’s some good craftsmanship behind these things but whatever it’s boring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Non tra le framboise più buone, ma decisamente di alto livello, con un’intensa acidità fruttata che si amalgama con note di lamponi, vino e sfumature citriche. Notevole!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. "The missing link between beer and wine", love that. Amber with ruby tones, off-white head with ruby tones. Nose is raspberry, wood, slight lemon. Flavour is nice combination of raspberry and wood, barnyard is there but certainly in the background on this one, medium sourness. Can’t compare to their kriek but great nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Aroma is raspberry jam, straw, and oak. Appearance is light purple with a thin white head. Taste is raspberry, oak, hay, and a little bit tart. Medium light body with low carbonation. Overall an easy drinking lambic but I prefer a little more funk.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2014 22/XII/13 - 37.5cl bottle from Geers (Oostakker) @ home - BB: 30/VIII/15 (2013-1164)
Clear deep ruby red beer, small aery irregular pink head, dissipates immediately. Aroma: raspberry jam, bit dirty, smelly, unpleasant. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: sour start, pretty bitter, bit metallic, raspberry jam. Aftertaste: bit sour, lemon peel, bitter touch, raspberry, bit metallic, raspberry jam, bitter hops. Had much higher expectations... :-(

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours clear bordeaux red with a huge lingering light pink head. Aroma is candy sweetness, raspberries, cherries and some yeast. Taste is moderate sour and light sweet. Kind of an odd lambic. A bit creamy even. Pretty fruity but in a completely different way than 3F or Cantillon. Some barnyard but not much. Medium bodied and quite sticky. Decent but not great.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle shared at the BFD Christmas Party.
Brilliant reddish pink color, sweet raspberry jam aroma and flavor. I was looking fro the lambic, but I ended up with more of a raspberry wine cooler.
