tectactoe (1526) - Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Tap: deep, ruby red color with a slightly pink/purple tint all around; same goes for the head, somewhat lavender in hue; big, chunky, but quick to recede. Aroma has notes of raspberry juice & raspberry jam; mostly sweet & just barely tart. Smells good, but itís definitely a one-trick pony. Taste has a nice sourness up front that fades into a mid-palate & back-end sweetness. Raspberry juice, light jam, & perhaps a touch of grape & cherry notes, too. Not quite vinous & almost no present funk. It works as a very nice fruit beer, but isnít what I want in a true "lambic"... So Iím torn.

On tap, poured cranberry red with a little white hat for head. sweet aroma of raspberries. Tastes like a tart carbonated cranberry raspberry punch. Sweet as can be and tart as Iíll get out. But those are what make a great limbic for me. Excellent drink.

Shared with wife at Gainesville HOB. Pours deep red with pink head. Huge sweet raspberry aroma. Flavor is super sweet and tart raspberries and sugar. Something slightly weird on the back end like sweet-n-low flavor. Not bad. Wife liked it.

Strawberry and sour grape aroma is wonderful. Deep red with a creamy tan foam. Medium body. Good mouthfeel is full and refreshing. Strawberry and other red fruits fill the palate and the finish. Not overly sour as some others. Very nice.

Nice aroma of raspberries, some astringency kicking through as well. Taste syrupy, you can still feel raspberries, sourness, almost no malt nor hops. Aftertaste long and dry, a bit like wine. I guess this kind of lambicís would be the first choice of those people who usually prefer wine or cider over beer. I like it.

On draft at the Blue Monkey. What else can I say that hasnít all ready been said. Big rasberry flavor, a tad bit syrupy body, taste like the candy Jolly Rancher. Nice tangy finish. I like it.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 01.07.2013, tap @ Rattle ín Hum:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is sweet fruity, raspberry syrup, raspberry candy, hints of grass and caramel. Taste is sweet, sugar, sour concentrated raspberry juice, citrusy sourness. As a sweet sour-ish treat, this is really nice. As sour, itís not.
