38cl, from De Hopduvel Gent, sour fruit beer, not balanced, clear, nearly no head, nothing special, needs to be revised Brouwser (119) - gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 20, 2008
Bière aux reflets cerise. peu de mousse et d’effervescence. Un voil moyen à l’apparence de pâte de fruits.
Arome de fraise et de framboise avec un léger parfum suret.
Le goût rappel le jus de fruits, avec une pointe sûre.
Le palais est ordinaire.
Une bonne bière de fruit mais le caractère de leur gueuze y manque... renffisch (891) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 19, 2008
as far as fruit lambics go this a very harmonious not too sweet and not too sour version. The raspberry flavour are much mor in the leaves and pips than fruit. definitely one of the best. yumm. sorry, more drinking than rating, it’s too goooooood. thewolf (12940) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2008
Bottle @ Plan B., cph.Christian (13927) - Odense, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2008
Pours pale, lightly hazy red. Big frothy, white-pink head. Disappears rather quickly. Super fresh aroma of raspberries and light tarty funkiness. Rather spritzy mouthfeel, but a little thin. Mild, citric tartness at first. Some light (actually a bit disappointing) raspberries and a funky finish with weak caramel.
Pinkish orange with a small white head. Strong berry aroma, mostly raspberry. Dry fruity flavour, some raspberry and almond, only a little tartness.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2008 A nice and sour framboise in a 0.375 l bottle. Light red-brown color. Light taste of raspberry and also raspberry seeds. Flat carbonation. Typical sourness. mabel (10004) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2008
[1168-20080301] Bottle. Raspberry leafy fruit yeast aroma. Clear, bright red body with a medium-lasting foamy light pink head. Sour bready yeast and raspberry fruit flavour with a grainy finish. Medium body is a little more tart than sour. Great balance of sour and fruit, plus an excellent finish to the festival day!

Bottle. Clear reddish colour with a small white head. Sweet raspberry aroma and sweet sugary notes. Nice framboise. Doppelganger (1389) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - APR 26, 2008
Bottle, from Noel Cuveliers, Abele. Exciting start to this one. Uncaged the cork, started working the cork loose, and then left the bottle for a minute. Suddenly Bang! Foam! A bit of scrambling, and then eventually got things directed into a glass. The aroma was kind of elusive at first. Sweet, jammy...but there was something else at the edge of memory. Then I got it: donut! A maple glazed donut, the kind injected with fruit goo. Not elegant, but kind of fun. Flavor is more subtle than the aroma, sweet, but finds a balance with some nice dried raspberries. Softly tart finish. As a sweetened lambic I thought this was nicer than most. reakt (951) - Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2008
Thought it odd that I’d not rated this but bought and rated a bottle @ Lowlander a couple months ago anyway, sure enough, as I randomly scrolled through my old phone I found a rate from Ealing BF last year. It’s actually quite interesting to see the difference in my rating style since then, however the scores were amusingly only 1 point different. Oh well, at least it’s in the upper echelon of lambic fruits and I can just combine the two. Red with an orangey hue, like anodized aluminum, with a thin white head. Nose is initially sweet raspberry but theres also some strawberry and lemon in there along with the usual lambic tartness and funk. Taste is much the same, sweet with a little balancing vinegar acidity and dryness. I’m not in any way upset that I’ve had another, I’m just left with a sinking feeling that I may have had rates on the old sim card that my ex absconded with, D’oh!
