2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
unmarked ’80s vintage@ BBF ’15 Vintage Tasting ZO, merci. Dissolved in appearance, what survived is mostly on-style: vinegar sharp, woody notes, fruity balsamico and liquified Haribo winegum sloshing around in this stale puddle of a beer corpse. Would still make a decent raspberry salat dressing.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
*Old rating, best before 05.2006. Süßlich-klebriges, himbeer-aromatisches Bier. Kaum Säure vorhanden, zu viel süßer Sirup. Viel zu künstlich. Eher ein Radler als ein Fruit-Lambic.

Bottle raspberries in aroma. Sweet raspberries syrup in taste. Sweet fruity finish. Not too much Lambic in it, but as Fruit beer OK.

I really am a sucker for the sweetened lambics. They taste like candy and I really don’t care that they don’t taste traditional. They are delicious and this one tastes like sweet and sour raspberry. This one is about as good as the Lindemans framboise and slightly better than the Cherish one.

Very well balanced and good all around. Pours ruby red with good pink head and lacing. Light notes of lambic bretta with a good dose of raspberry. Well blended, and sweetness tempered well with bretta. Tap at RFD.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Mayor of Oldtown. Appearance: finger of red head that does not persist, blood red color, clear, no real lacing. Aroma: raspberry, light yeastiness. Palate: light body, sparkling carbonation and texture. Taste: cloying sweetness after a while, but starts off slightly tart with heavy sweetness. Overall, the sweetness of this one got to me more than other lambics, a little too cloying for me.
