Bottle looks very good, the beer in the glass as well. Moldy-fruity aroma. Starts quite sourish without being too much, very fruity like berries from the beginning, good balance between sour and fruity. Moldy notes still there, wonderful prickly. Well balanced finish, fruityness dominating. Quite drinkable and a great beer!

My bottle from West Lakeview. Bottled 2007, opened at RBSG 10. Pours a very attractive pinkish-brown with pale pink bubbles on top. Nose strikes you with typical soft sourness of 3F and raspberries, as well as sour cherry notes. Some grass as well. On taste, it is still young. Lots of tannins abound that will prop this up for years. Raspberries and tart cherries, clean acid. Some cheesy notes, in a good way. The jam elements of the fruit really stand out, along with the puckering astringency from the tannins. This will be amazing in another 3-5 years.

Thanks to NobleSquirrel for saving me some at the grand tasting, RBSG 2010. The most amazing raspberry and jam aroma. Wonderful fruit. Perfect flavor, the best fruit lambic I’ve had. Very jammy, with a perfect sour edge, a little yogurt, lactic creaminess, a perfect package.

Sampled at the RBSG Summer Grand Tasting (Grand Rapids, MI). Pours a rusty reddish brown, good almost copper, with a murky underbelly. A lacing offwhite near tan head, ring. Aromas are huge: funky cheese takes the lead, raspberries, soured with funky dusty brett, oak. Big brett funk with sour and sweet raspberries. Initial is surprising, change of pace into sour raspberries, puree, a light sweetness, very dried out with just that touch of kriek peeking through a bit. Dry bretty funk take hold on the backend, with powerful sourness, rounded out brett, lighter malts. Really sticks the funk and sourness long term to the palate with fruity raspberry, tart and sweet synergy, mixing well. An honor to try and a masterful fruit lambic, the aroma really is it’s strength for me but it’s very well balanced, sour with suffiicient sweetness, potent funk.

(Old BA rate - bottle( Lightly hazy ruby red-orange color; fizzy white head; the color on this is really interesting. Tart dark cherries with fresh berry aromas; touch of funk and only a hint of sweetness comes in. Berry-like freshness and acidity; light vinegary flavors; sour and tart; funky, but really nice dark fruitiness about it as well. Medium to light; a little syrupy; very fizzy carbonation. Very drinkable as the complexity drew me in and the tart, but very well-balanced flavors, kept the drinking easy. Overall, probably one of the best brews that I’ve tried to-dat

Bottle, 75cl corked. From trade with jbrus, thx a lot John! It’s an almost clear and copper beer with a medium sized off-white head. Cellar, barnyard and raspberry in the aroma. It’s medium bodied and tart, with lemon, a good dose of raspberries and some barnyard in the back. The finish is a nice blend of lemon and raspberry flavors. A good throat burn is left too. Nice. 091230
