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.

Bottle. Red in colour, pinky small and quickly disappearing head. Very fruity with tart raspberries, red berries, funk. Medium to light sour, very fruity, medium bodied with high carbonation. Might be a bit more sour but still was very enjoyable.

Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a red clear beautiful colour, diminishing white head. Aroma is very rich in fruit notes, with some soury notes; very nice (if you like fruit). Taste is medium to heavy sweet, slightly to medium sour, very slightly bitter; nice. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation.

Draught at Banksia, Cph. Lovely deep red colour with a thin, light pink head. Fruity aroma with raspberries, caramel malts, fruit juices and wheat malts. Taste is sweet. Medium body with a creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes sweet with raspberries. Too sweet for an excellent Lambiek. Enjoyable, trough.

Piwo czerwone, lekko zmętnione. Piana szybko redukuje się do zera. W aromacie wyraźne maliny i kwaskowość. W smaku lekko kwaskowo, trochę słodkawo. Średnia pełnia, wysokie wysycenie. Przyjemne piwo.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A 0.375 l bottle that poured lightly hazy red to copper body with a tiny head atop. Nice and strong fresh raspberry aroma, just like the real, wild ones from Bosnia I had a couple hours before. Flavor was only lightly sour, fruity with raspberry, dried fruits, touch of apple vinegar and leather. Medium bodied with light sourness in the finish along with some sweetness, too. Lightly chalky there. Pleasant enough, well made, although, unlike the most I guess, I would appreciate harsher lambic character.

Draught @ Koelschip. Amber with a red glow and a pink, dense head. Solid aroma of raspberries and cellar. Flavour is raspberry sweet with only a little tartness. Lovely stuff and easy to forget it’s actually beer.
