Pours light raspberry with no head. Aromas of raspberry, red currant, citrus, slight cherry. Nose is perfectly blended, just amazing. Taste is soured fruit, citrusy notes and slight earthy tones. Mouthfeel is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Insanely well balanced between tart, fruit, earthy notes and floral notes. Wow. KansaiBeerLvrs (5305) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 15, 2016
Shared by Remi. Deep red with a sharp jammy raspberry, acidic vinegar and oak aroma. Light bodied, tart, very acidic with tons of bright berries. Yum , very sharp delicious raspberry.

Sourish-fruity, moderately funky aroma of raspberries, some strawberries, red wine vinegar, some oak and some bitter almond. Quite sour, fruity and moderately funky taste of raspberries, strawberries, red wine vinegar and a bit of bitter almond, followed by a medium long, quite tart and woody-dry finish. Medium body, slightly effervescent and quite astringent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Good stuff! sjogro (4653) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2016

2014 bottle shared thanks to kermis. Murky dark pink to brown with no real head. Some hay, funk, raspberries, red berries and black currant. Light bready, mineral, green leaves and a touch of red wine vigegar. Over medium sour and very light sweet. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It’s good, but really not as good as the hype. mariuspoenari (2954) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 27, 2016

Candy for grown ups, the kind you’d gladly steal from a child :p Rasberry heaven, I bet that this was what God really made on the 7th day, the resting bullshit was just a huge cover up.
The taste is a funky blend of raspberries and citrus. Love this as much as some people love Sofiero! aleigator (945) - GERMANY - JUN 6, 2016
Pours a rubin red, satured color, with no head to speak of - apparantly this flat as an island.
Explosive nose of an intriguing interplay between crisp strawberries and funky glue, together with blue cheese. Has an astringent vinegar acetic quality to it, which lends a fermented ripeness to the berries. Has a wet leaves characteristic to it, with moldy, funky wood bark and strawberry bush.
Drinks fairly flat, with just the tiniest amount of carbonation, which leads to an uncompromising, tongue sticking acetic tartness, without 3 Fonteinens typical stony mineral effervescence. The crispness of the fruits make up for it though by providing a nice raspberry richness.
Tastes of cucumber water, turnip cabbage, vinegar and very unripe raspberries. The berries then produce a stone pit accompanied, earthen sweetness, while the beers profound tartness becomes even more prominent. Has an aqueous softness in the finish, while its strawberry richness is almost gone, putting the flavor focus entirely on the teeth numbing, long lastic sourness.
Drinks more than an AWA than a fruit Lambic to me - incredibly sour, vinous, with not much else being able to cut though. The beer produces a powerful acetic sourness which is able to overcome the raspberry presence in this. Compared to Cantillons Rose, this is inferior in each and every way, less pronounced fruit characteristics and quite unbalanced.
