Cask at Moeder Lambic, Fontainas. Pours bright pink with light pink foam on top. Quite frothy. Nose has a bit of funk, red currant juice acidity and also raspberry jam raspberries, just without extra sweetness. Taste is not too sour, which I definitely prefer. Good barnyard funk plus decent fruitiness. Almost sessionable, good creaminess in the body. Solid.

UPDATED: SEP 26, 2017 The basic, traditional raspberry lambic from Cantillon, which is, among other things, transformed into Lou Pépé Framboise when bottled and refermented but is also available from tap at Moeder Lambic; tasted at Moeder Lambic Fontainas during Zwanze Day as "Framboise Cuvée Moeder". Medium thick and moussy, surprisingly stable, pale off-pinkish head - not sure how this is done, since we are ultimately talking about unblended draft lambic here... Hazy fuchsia robe with warm ruby red hue. Aroma of indeed a ton of fresh red raspberries, very overwhelming in its actual fruit richness, with subtler side notes of sweaty old T-shirt and old socks, plum peel, ketchup, fermenting hay, a lot of sweet sherry-like notes, leather. Very fruity onset as expected, estery but also buried under a truckload of real, rich, genuine red raspberry flavour, under which a tart lactic, yoghurt-like sourness develops; the basic beer is mildly lambic-funky but in any case very dry, yet kept juicy by this very generous dosis of raspberries. Plum and grape peel wryness lingers, carbonation is soft but I am wondering how a draught, unblended lambic gets any at all. Sourdough- and white bread-like soil carries the lambic esters, the real fruit and the sourness onwards to a very quenching finish, juicy and dry at the same time, with a tart, tangy yoghurty sourness lingering. Very rich and generous, this is about exactly what I was expecting from a Cantillon raspberry lambic, but I am left wondering where this gets its head and fizz - I assume this is somehow done on purpose by Moeder Lambic, in order to make it align with modern consumer preferences, but for me, this would not have been necessary at all and actually distracts a bit from the rich tapestry of lambic-estery and fruit flavours.

Rami Rami is drinking a Cuvée Moeder Lambic (Framboise) by Brasserie Cantillon at Moeder Lambic Original

Mam wrazenie ze mniej kwasny i mniej dziki a porownywalnie owocowy co "podstawowy" blend. Fajny jest, ewidentnie sesyjny. Slodkosc malinowa

UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Cask at Moeder Lambic Fontainas. Pours cloudy cherry red with a pink stable foam. Aroma is very pure raspberry over light funk and stables. Body is light, raspberry fruity, lightly sour and tart, only little funk left, but juice and jelly even more. Clear flavours in good harmony. Soft carbonation and a smooth texture for a great drinking experience. Great!

Cask pour at Moeder. The beer is a bright red with a big pink head of foam. The aroma has bright berry notes, floral aspects, and has a little ground pepper. Taste is sweet berries and moderate tartness. Medium body and medium carbonation. Pretty nice.
