Boutip (6084) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 1, 2008
2004(label), 2006(cork) vintage courtesy of Bu11zeye: Poured a deep reddish color lambic with a nice white color bubbly head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of raspberry is dominant with some sour notes as well as some barnyard notes and a weird cough syrup-like finish. Taste is dry with some notes of sour raspberry and some limited acidic notes which I appreciated since I usually find the Cantillon lambic a bit too acid. Full body with some great carbonation. I thought this was really good but I good have done without the weird raspberry syrup-like aftertaste.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2008
Sampled at Hellbillys. Sour and fruity aroma on the nose. Pink body color. Good dose of raspberry and sour flavor. Dry finish on the palate like this syle is. A good lambic.

Drink4Satan (677) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 27, 2008
2005 vintage. Pours a hazed brilliant ruby colour with a whispy pink-tinted head that fades quickly. The nose is tart raspberries, vinegar, wet hay funk and dust. The flavour was extremely tart and sweet with less funk than I anticipated. Vinegar-like acidity and tart raspberries were about all that came to mind in the taste, along with residual sugars. The body was light and the carbonation was gently effervescent. No alcohol was detectable.

LinusStick (3293) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2008
WOW! I thought the kriek was good. This beer gets my perfect score. I cant ever give the top number on anything so this (in my terms) is my tops. Outstanding strong vinegar, sour raspberry and funky aroma. Wet wood and moldy cheese are faint as well. Pour was a beautiful murky red with a thin white ring for a head. Taste was incredibly sour and funky. Tastes like a raspberry/vinegar mix that was left in Grandmas attack for decades and just discovered. Dusty, musty and woody. This is heaven in a bottle.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale ber alles, Arizona, USA - APR 26, 2008
2005 bottle shared by shyam at the phx tasting... raspberry colored with brown tints and a whitish pink head which fades quickly to a ring leaving behind some spotty lacing. the aroma is like a damp rotted forest... wed wood, a little funk, canvas, earth, grass and some raspberry tartness. the palate is nicely tart and dry with very little sweetness. flavors come over from the aroma... some cheesy funk and woody raspberries. it kinda reminds me of raspberry flavored emergenC... medicinal and mineral. medium bodied with a very vibrant mouth feel.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 17, 2008
Sampled at Hellbillys tasting. Thanks Shyam! Pours a nice red color with a small pinkish head. Aroma is all raspberry with a bit of funkiness. Flavor is fruity, but mostly raspberry, with a bit of the funk coming through. A hint of sourness on the finish. Good fruit brew.

BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2008
Sampled at Hellbillys Hellraiser courtesy of Shyam. THANKS!!! Musty cut raspberry bushes with a hint of sweaty feet, this one pours crimson with a minimal rose colored head. Raspberry sourness, citrus, and Maytag blue cheese. Interesting and flavorful, maybe Im coming around on the style.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - APR 14, 2008
poured a pink color with a small head that quickly went away. A lambics funk aroma with raspberry in the background. Flavor is similar, the raspberry is more in the finish with citrus and a mild funk up front. Not overly sour, little carbonation.

shadey (2085) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 3, 2008
750ml bottle fully of beer brewed in 2003. Cork says it was bottled in 2005. The batch is at least 4 years old. The pour is spritzy and lively. Before it settles, the foam almost appears orangish, but after it settles it looks like orange jello in the flute. A pinkish orange jello.
The aroma is obviously fruity, but there is also a nice tart tickle that hits the back of the nostrils.
The flavor is rich with tart and fruity currents swirling over my tongue. The raspberry is most noticeable in the finish. The tartness is throughout and refreshing. A delicious creation that really excites the drinker with its mystique.

Good lord. This is by far one of the best fruit lambics I have ever tried. The initial taste is the funk of a lambic, but it is completely offset by the raspberries, thus leaving no sour aftertaste even though it is very present in the beer. I dont think it really can get better than this.
