Churchkey had it, and it was good. Poured a clear ruby color with a small pink head - gone quickly. Aroma was very raspberry, a touch of funk in there that I don’t normally get from framboise lambics. Flavor was a fantastic mix of competing flavors, fresh fruit notes, aged lambic gueuze characteristics. Woah.

No head; deep ruby-cyclamen beer, lively carbonated. Roasted cherries, or heated cherry, mulled wine. Very fruity, sweetish-sourish, ripe raspberry flavour, and rasberry kernels. Only thing, finish is a tad watery. Well-carbonated, dry, fruity palate, light body. Excellent fruitlambic. Good work, Gert, an ideal one to wean the ignorant to the real thing.

Bottled beer. Strong raspberry flavour. Great sharpness and non of the artificial sweetness that comes with the more commercial gueuzes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2016 0,375l bottle @ Kaisla. Pours clear deep red with a low off-white head. Aroma is sour malts and raspberries. Flavor is sour malts with plenty of raspberries. Great. (8484-17) Re-rate with same bottle size and same place. A bit better than I remembered.

Une robe rouge et trouble se présente devant nos yeux, c’est visuellement très aguichant. La mousse est toutefois assez mince, mais laisse des traces suaves de dentelle derrière elle. Au nez, ça sent carrément la tarte aux framboises que mon grand-père faisait jadis. En bouche, les framboises explosent dans un chaos sucré et acide à la fois. Dangereuse et délicieuse.

Not bitter as it has no hops. Not sour like a lambic either. The raspberry taste is not particularly strong as with some other raspberry lambics that I have tried. Overall very good although I would have preferred a more sour taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ruby red and white head. Aroma is sweet with lots of raspberries. Some cherry too. Taste is sweet with raspberries but there is some cherry sourness in the end. Medium body and medium carbonation.

superspak (5682) - Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2015
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, best before 5/11/2016. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of huge tart/juicy raspberries, fruit skin, green apple, cherry, light lemon, hay, straw, grass, light pepper, toasted oak, light leather/funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of raspberries, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate oak barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big tart/juicy raspberries, fruit skin, green apple, cherry, light lemon, hay, straw, grass, light pepper, toasted oak, light leather/funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruit tartness and yeast spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of tart raspberry, fruit skin, apple, cherry, hay, straw, toasted oak, light leather/funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate oak barrel flavors; with a great sweetness/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Some mild notes of oxidation in the aromas and flavors as well; but added some complimenting complexity to the overall profile. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth, lightly crisp/creamy, and slightly acidic/tannic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is an excellent young fruit lambic style. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity/spicy yeast, and moderate oak barrel flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

mecafilo (219) - Perugia, ITALY - SEP 10, 2016
Bottle @ Elfo’s Pub, Perugia, Italy. Pours with a red clear beautiful colour, diminishing white head. Aroma is very rich in fruit notes, with some soury notes; very nice (if you like fruit). Taste is medium to heavy sweet, slightly to medium sour, very slightly bitter; nice. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation.
