UPDATED: JAN 6, 2017 Couleur rouge un peu ambrée, aucune mousse. Fort nez vinaigre de framboise, acétique, avec de bonnes notes de fut de chêne. Gout fort de vinaigre de framboise, acidulé, acétique, note griotte, le tout assez intense. Legère note de chêne et forte acidité en fin de bouche. J’aime bien, mais moins complexe et subtile qu’attendue.

Bottle 37,5cl shared by Calisky. A red beer without head. Nose is intense on red fruits and lambic notes, lactic touch. Aroma is on red fruits, acid notes, fruit skin notes, very dry and acid, body is also very acid with red fruit skin notes, very unbalanced and difficult to drink.

Bottle shared with Rachel whilst watching Romesh Live. Cork eased out without so much as a hiss which backed up the lack of head or any carbonation. Aroma is tart, slightly woody raspberries. Pours clearish red. Flavour is acidic and very tart indeed. It being flat isn’t helpful in the enjoyment. I like a bit of a carbonation prickle in a lambic. Nice levels of sourness but doesn’t come together the way I’d like. martin00sr (4037) - Haderslev, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2016
Clear red amber, no head, just a few bubbles. Aroma has raspberries, light funk and notes of hay. Raspberry yoghurt flavour. Sweet and sour, tart and tasty. ajnepple (6606) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2016
375 ml bottle from Bottles & Bitters at Sloan’s Lake. Clear reddish appearance with minimal head. Aroma of raspberries, light oak and some funky sour notes. Similar flavor, rich and sweet with a moderately sour finish. Medium body with a mildly tart and puckering mouth feel. Nice.

Bottle (from Pothouse). Pours red. Aroma is sour raspberries, funk, vinegar, hint of acetone. Flavor is sour, vinegar, intense acetone, corked wine, raspberries. Overall: seems like good idea/base, but the intense acetone (infected? bad cork?) turns it really undrinkable. This has nothing to do with good beer/lambic period.

Stomache hurts but mouth is smiling.Nice. rodenbach99 (4572) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2016
Bouteille. Un liquide rouge sans mousse. Un nez intense d’acide avec des notes de framboises. Une bouche tout aussi acide mais avec des framboises bien présentes. On comprend pourquoi elle se nomme expérimental. Est-ce que l’expérience va durer longtemps encore, j’ai mal à l’estomac! Hanoi (951) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2016 Bottle. Nose is vinegar, oak, cheese, dough, green apple, lemon, raspberry tea, sherry, red wine vinegar. No head, very flat. Taste is overpoweringly acidic, vinegar, marzipan, raspberry, lemon, more acid, green apple, cranberry, vanilla brie in the very very acidic finish. Mouthfeel is flat and battery acid.This is the first lambic that I?ve ever struggled with acid and it detracts. According to Tim Webb, this is a barrel by barrel proposition, but this really isn?t good which is a shame from such good brewer. Rask0lnikov (1298) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 25, 2016
375ml bottle. 2016 edition. Pale red, pinkish colour. No head. Vinegar, acidic notes, raspberries in the aroma. Raspberries at first. Acidic notes. Vinegar. Raspberries and raspberrie seeds as well. Dry, acidic finish. Acididness and raspberries in the aftertaste. Rather medium bodied, acidic but good fruit lambic.
