2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: pours a beautiful pink with a peach hue. Pretty pink foam cap disappears quickly to a clean surface. Really a pretty beer with murky clarity which lends well to the colors.
S: raspberry and lemons with a hint if mint.
T: sour with rapsberries and yeast. The beer tastes nice until I swallow. The finish on this is really yeasty and warm with a odd salinity to it. The finish is really destroying this beer for me.
M: medium bodied and full carb with a really slick and coating finish for me.
O: everything was great until I put it in my mouth. Then it was downhill.
Serving type: bottle

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, from a trade with a good friend. Pours a hazy-opaque crimson-violet with a quickly dissipating fuchsia head. The nose is a subtle, perfectly balanced bouquet of fresh raspberry, balsamic vinegar, floral (lily? dogwood?), vanilla, horse barn, and light smoke notes. Intensely sour on the front of the tongue, then it opens up into fruit and more flowers; the sourness stays with it the whole time, but the ghost of those long-ago raspberries floats over the top, haunting the acetic intensity. Finish is long, warm, and mouth-watering. This beer makes me smile, and on the first really cold night of a Texas fall makes me think of summers long ago. Canít ask for much more than that.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750mL bottle, sent from pantanap (thanks a lot, Kan), pours a reddish orange amber with a medium beige head. Nose is pure raspberries, with some tartness, and moderate funkiness. Flavour brings out loads of raspberries, a little funk, and some tartness. Not really like a traditional lambic, more like an American sour, though more like a lambic than most. The more you drink, the more the complexity comes out. Wonderful stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: An easy to drink raspberry funky-tart ale that is surprisingly faithful to its Belgian lambic counterparts. Excellent
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed almost one year after receiving it from cpetrone84, thanks a lot Chris.
The look: Cloudy dark red body topped by a fizzy medium pink head that quickly dissipates to ring of foam.
In long: Nose is intensely raspberry with a nice lambic barnyard funk, surprisingly on style for an American lambic. Taste is loaded with raspberries, grains, a good amount of funk, lactic acid, no acetic acid whatsoever. Acidity and sourness levels in the low-medium range relative to the style, quite easy to drink. Very full chewy body with a lively carbonation. Iíve been disappointed by some Upland sour batches but this latest (I assume latest) batch of Raspberry Lambic is spot-on. Smells and tastes a lot more like a raspberry lambic than a American raspberry Sour. Could pass as a true Belgian lambic. Apparently I love receiving beer in trades, I love it too much, after many complaints UPS said they would no longer deliver beers to my home if I didnít stop hugging their drivers.
