PowY (1043) - AUSTRIA - OCT 4, 2017
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy ruby red with a lightly pinkish head. The aroma is extremely fruity - raspberries and cherries - extremely dense, lots of fruits with quiet some leathery, meaty notes. Upon warming some spices join the aroma - gingerbread, Christmas spices. Very nice aroma! Light to medium body with a light to medium carbonation, a heavy initial but not offending sourness with mellows out quickly and is followed by a fruity tartness and a dry finish. Very refreshing. The aroma is full with loads of berries, sour berries, raspberries, sour cherries, some woody notes, extremely fruity. Excellent!

Score: 9 / 4 / 8 / 4 / 18

750 ml bottle, bottled 20/12/16.
Deep red body, with a small, pinkish head.
Aroma with loads of fresh raspberries, jam, barnyard, some cherries, some wood, some unripe stone fruits, slight
Tastes of sour raspberries, vinegar, wood, unripe pears, cherries, some jam.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes acidic, dry, wooden, very fruity, with sour raspberries, vinegar, some unripe fruits.

Delicious! Loads of the most lovely, fresh raspberries, especially in the nose. As the beer warms up, the cherries come through a bit more. Quite acidic taste, but so complex and rich. Among the best Lambics I've had so far!
