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.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
375ml bottle (2011 vintage) pours murky red brown with a finger of pink head. Nose is super sweet fruity berry syrup, not much else. Taste is tart berry jam and sugary syrup. Finish is sweet fruit juice and a little tart. Way over-sweetend and artifical tasting. Didnít finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster. Looks good; a transparent cherry red with pink head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; fresh raspberries. Tastes like it smells with a nice, lively mouthfeel. Nice, light, and recreshing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Asahiya. Very fresh funk, berries. Dark reddish/brown color, little head. Berries and grapes in the initial / slightly tannic, with hits to the upper palate and sinuses / finishes with similar smooth sweet berries. Thin-medium body, and a bit astringent. Taste is refreshing. A little beer that punches above its weight.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle.. Pours deep red with pink head, lots of yeast(?). Raspberry aroma, sweet and thick, thats it. Taste is lots of sugar, then raspberry, than sugar again. Medium body, medium carbonation, no bitterness. Strange mouthfeel of artificial sugaring.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 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.
