Bottle. Cloudy golden pour, with an off white head. Tart, sour lemons, some raspberry, citrus peel, mild funk, a bit cheesy, and a bit sweet. The raspberry probably has faded a little, but still pretty good. madmitch76 (25344) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2015

Scopey 10K Celebrations in deepest Croydonia. Thanks to Paul. Very hazy gold - amber beer, thin pale cream colour head. Palate is light, crispy and semi dry. Very lemony tart start with a little orange providing some contrast. Initially it’s a bit too sharp but as the palate adjusts it’s refreshing. Light finish. Decent but any raspberry was lost in the lemon tartness.
Bottle share at Scopey’s 10K, many thanks to Paul for this rarity. 5.9% 2010 vintage. Hazy opaque dirty orange, still, small ring of white head. Aroma is intense raspberry, apricot, some background cowpat. Lovely smell. Body is medium, tingly carbonation, smooth, tooth coating sugars. Taste is tangy, rhubarb, lemon, buttery, sour but not too much. Not acidic at all. Very nice stuff. teorn88 (7687) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 27, 2015

Bottle shared at my 10K tasting. It pours very slightly hazy rose with a decent white head. The nose is fresh, sweet-sour, juicy, clean, light funk, vanilla, wood and raspberry pip. The taste is big tartness upfront, clean, crisp, tart raspberry, some acidity, raspberry pip, lemon sherbet and granny smith apple with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Good mouth-pucker. Very drinkable stuff. Pretty delicious.

Bottle shared in London during Scopey’s 10k - many thanks to Scopey. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy white head. A little raspberry and strawberry in the nose, mellow funk, lemon. Light sweet flavor with fleshy raspberry, pulpy strawberry, citric lemon bite. Light bodied with average, spritzy carbonation. Sharp acidic bite in the finish, up-front lemon, then undertones of raspberry, salt, straw. Cleansing, quenching, highly acidic.

Bottle split at Scopey 10K, massive thanks to Paulo, 26/11/15.
Golden orange with a decent light beige covering that dissipates to edgeing.
Nose is bitter raspberry, light smoke, berry tinged straw, funky, citric peel, trace of wood must.
Taste comprises tarte raspberry, light pissoi, dry rot, barnyard, funk tangy berry sherbets.
Medium bodied, fine to spritzy carbonation, drying close peppered with tarte raspberry leading to a puckering climax.

This raspberry lambic was reminiscent of New Glarus without as much thickness in the body or residual sweetness. Very similar in the aroma with juuuust a little more funk if you really searched for it, but a big fresh whiff of raspberries up front and center. VERY quaffable, dangerously so. Light sweetness on the palate but still chalk full of raspberry flavor and a little stinky cheese and lemony barnyard funk. Another long time wish list beer that lived up to the hype vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - AUG 10, 2014
(backlog) Bottle. Man i wish i got more of this. Ruby pour with some pink head. Cherry, raspberry, brett and sour aromas. Raspberry and tart tones dominate flavors, nice tart and sourness. HonusWagner (2218) - Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Generously shared by Ryan, many moons ago on Halloween.
Fanastic spritzy tartness with good raspberry character, a bit mineraly, awesome stuff.
