1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
0.25L bottle, murky red to purple colour, strong carbonation, aroma is a melange of berry flavours that seem over ripe, taste is of candied fruits with some light sourness that linger on to a dry finish. Not the best of lambics.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled) Murky blue-brownish red with a medium, pink head. Sweetish aroma of boysenberries and blackcurrants. Boysenberry-strawberry-raspberry flavor with some sweet sugar - yet not cloying. Some dry and astringent cherry stone in the finish, plus some lambic sourness in the background. Light to medium body with quite high carbonation. Not that bad in the lemonade lambic category, but sweetened with saccharine :(.

A Mes rate: bottle from The Rake.
A very thick and cloudy dark red. Decent fruit syrup like mixed berry juice. Artificial obviously but nice enough. Very fruits of the Forrest indeed. Some faint lambic sourness. It’s actually not bad you know.

Bottle picked up in some random supermarket in Brussels, consumed 17-08-08 Pours pale purpley colour, sweet foresty fruit flavours bit syrupy and cloying at times lacks any real bite, but for a refreshing summery drink it just about works.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel.
Pours a lightly muddy red with a medium, frothy, pink head. Okay duration. Aroma has lots of black currants, some raspberries and blackberries. A fair, mild tartness behind the fruitiness. Medium carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Sweet sugary flavour at first, too little fruitiness. This comes later with clear raspberry tones and a barnyard and dry finish. Fair.
