FlacoAlto (4176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 18, 2013
Jan 2009 Bottle Date
A steady pour into my New Belgium globe glass produces a one finger thick, pink tinged head. The beer is a nice red-amber color that shows a lightly hazed, pink-red tinged, copper color when held up to the light. The aroma smells of floral raspberries, childrens aspirin, musty phenolics, woody raspberry seeds and a touch of oak character up front. If you really dig for it, the phenolic character starts to get a bit plastic like, and there is perhaps a touch of dried, grassy, grain character.

Nicely tart, but not hard, this accentuates a floral, fruity, but dry raspberry flavor. The finish has a light touch of childrens aspirin, some oak like woodiness, a hint of astringency (seeds and wood perhaps), but really it is the raspberries and the associated childrens aspirin flavor that really lingers on the palate. The carbonation is quite light, there is a soft prickly carbonation here though (this is by no means still), and the body is quite light, but does have a touch of texture / viscous character such that it is not watery. As my palate adjusts to this beer it does have a touch of soft, fruity sweetness to it; much of this is accentuated by the floral raspberry flavors. The acidity here is mostly lactic in character, but the raspberries certainly contribute to the acidity, and the is a complexity boost from notes of urea. Phenolic, musky, musty, and plastic like notes come out more as the beer warms up.

This has a really nice raspberry flavor to it. The underlying lambic doesnt come across as being the most complex in the world, but it serves the purpose quite well. This is quite light, and as long as you like funky, it really is quite refreshing. I am a sucker for this beer since it is a Lambic, but objectively it is not quite where I would want it to be.

Saeglopur (1929) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JAN 28, 2017
750 ml bottle from Etre Gourmet, bottled Aug 15.
Deeb ruby, hazy body, with almost no head.
Aroma with lots of sweet-sour raspberries, cherries, funk, cheese, unripe pears, some red apples, some vinegar.
Tastes of vinegar, sour berries, wood, some cherries, unripe fruits, slight leather.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes sour, medium dry, with vinegar, some pears, some lingering raspberries.

Very nice, although too sour for my Taste. The nose is really nice, diverse, with lots of berries and funk notes. Taste is dominated by vinegarish notes, that are a bit too much for me. Interesting stuff, but not among my favourite Lambics.

Bottled 08/2015. redish / bourdeaux like cloudy color, almost no head. smells of raspberries, wood, nutty, marzipan, some cherries, lightly dusty, lovely smell. full body, almost no carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of raspberries, some vinegar, cherry notes, nutty, light funk, rather glueish, leathery. finishes rather sour and quite acidic with notes of raspberries, cherries and some glue-like notes. lovely smell, taste is good, but I do not like the balance, rather harsh and quite vinegarish. overall still quite nice though.
