Itís probably not ready to drink. So be patient, keep it cool and age it.

Pretty simple: because they can.



I was at Sour & Bitter and it would be foolish of me to not drink, simply because it might get better.



AND it is released to the public, thus the brewer must be of the opinion that the beer is ready to be presented to a large crowd, and heís ready to receive the judgement.

Ready to drink, yes, but after 2-3 years it could become better.

It is already after two years, the beer was bottled in 2010.

I donít see your point. Your statement is that people should not drink and/or rate young lambic and gueuze because they (might) continue to mature for the better? Should they only be drank and rated after 4-5 years in the bottle?

According to last ratings, many users suggested not to drink it and age it for few years.

I had one over the weekend and my thoughts are this. People who havnt liked it, either havnt had enough framboise/framboisenlambic to understand that its perfect for what it should be and that its at perfect drinking age at the moment, or simply dont like the style much.

The beer has been in the bottle for over 6 months and the fruit is starting to diminish already. I cant see why people would think this will get any better for what it is supposed to be. I mean if you want it todie down and become less of a fruit beer, good effort, but what the hell are you then buying a raspberry lambic for then?

Thatís why you started a thread ordering people to hold onto their bottles for another 2-3 years?

You seem to take ratings way too personal.
