Bottle shared at gears81’s wedding, Congratulations Jake!! Pours a beautiful translucent ruby color. Aroma is a light raspberry and lemon peel. Flavor is soft raspberry flavor with a little tartness but a nice sour finish. Not too funky, but more acidic and fruity. Carbonation is lively and and perfect for the style.

"Gran Cata de Lambics".
Stated 4,5%.
Really nice fruited lambic. Smooth, balanced, quite sour and dry, some astrigent. Very enjoyable.

750 ml bottle from the source thanks at Heather_B on the share. Nice ruby color. Aroma is bold raspberry, subtle cherry, mild funky yeast. Flavor is bold in the juice character. Tartness is just enough to remind me it is a Lambic and not just juice. Very mild pucker, great mouthfeel (effervescent). Delightful!

axl (1085) - Lund, SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2017

Aroma is deep, slightly sweet raspberries, raspberry seeds, light sour cherries, light almond, moderate funk, hay, some barnyard notes and slight burnt rubber. Taste is tart and quite acidic with raspberries, sour cherries, raspberry seeds, citrus, light hay, very light almond notes and light to moderate yet very present and noticeable funk. Medium, moderately spritzy mouthfeel, light to medium carbonation and tart and quite complex raspberry and cherry aftertaste.

pjotrapostou (362) - POLAND - NOV 10, 2017
Vintage 2016. Zapach świeżo malinowy z domieszką pestek od wiśni, lekko migdałowy aromat. W smaku intensywnie owocowe, wiśnie i maliny z przewagą malin, cierpki i przyjemny posmak, który daje dużo więcej balansu niż we framboos. Pyszne.

Piotrek4 (311) - Lublin, POLAND - OCT 9, 2017
(Batch 4) Aromat bardzo przyjemny, wanilia, skórzany pasek, a przede wszystkim swojski syrop malinowy, taki najlepszej jakości. W smaku ciut gorzej. Są kwaśne wiśnie, ale też niestety jest ogórkowa kiszonka. Nie ma tragedii zdecydowanie, ale brakuje trochę dzikości. Czuć że jest jeszcze młode. Mocno kwaśne i odświeżające.

2.7
Borresteijn (7494) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2017
75cl Bottle shared. 6% version, not sure which year. Hazy pink colour, off-white head. Aroma of lots of funk, battery acid, raspberries, stable. Flavour is very sour, funky, acidic, battery acid, raspberries, didn't get any cherries, sour finish. Light bodied, way over-carbonated. Glad to have tried this, but this is wasted on me.
