maekchu (3911) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle from Asahiya. Very fresh funk, berries. Dark reddish/brown color, little head. Berries and grapes in the initial / slightly tannic, with hits to the upper palate and sinuses / finishes with similar smooth sweet berries. Thin-medium body, and a bit astringent. Taste is refreshing. A little beer that punches above its weight.

Usko (171) - Bavaria, GERMANY - DEC 6, 2013
Bottle.. Pours deep red with pink head, lots of yeast(?). Raspberry aroma, sweet and thick, thats it. Taste is lots of sugar, then raspberry, than sugar again. Medium body, medium carbonation, no bitterness. Strange mouthfeel of artificial sugaring.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 Tap: deep, ruby red color with a slightly pink/purple tint all around; same goes for the head, somewhat lavender in hue; big, chunky, but quick to recede. Aroma has notes of raspberry juice & raspberry jam; mostly sweet & just barely tart. Smells good, but it’s definitely a one-trick pony. Taste has a nice sourness up front that fades into a mid-palate & back-end sweetness. Raspberry juice, light jam, & perhaps a touch of grape & cherry notes, too. Not quite vinous & almost no present funk. It works as a very nice fruit beer, but isn’t what I want in a true "lambic"... So I’m torn.

On tap, poured cranberry red with a little white hat for head. sweet aroma of raspberries. Tastes like a tart carbonated cranberry raspberry punch. Sweet as can be and tart as I’ll get out. But those are what make a great limbic for me. Excellent drink.

Sampled at Tuscanora Mills in Leesburg. Deep red color with a pinkish head. Raspberry aromas with tart and slightly sour flavors. Not bad at all

Shared with wife at Gainesville HOB. Pours deep red with pink head. Huge sweet raspberry aroma. Flavor is super sweet and tart raspberries and sugar. Something slightly weird on the back end like sweet-n-low flavor. Not bad. Wife liked it.

kathouse (1893) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Strawberry and sour grape aroma is wonderful. Deep red with a creamy tan foam. Medium body. Good mouthfeel is full and refreshing. Strawberry and other red fruits fill the palate and the finish. Not overly sour as some others. Very nice.

kingstoni (2088) - FINLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Bottle. Hazy dark red color with a thin reddish head. Sweet and sour aroma of berries. Sweet taste with slightly sour finish.

jinroh (1597) - ESTONIA - JUL 31, 2013
Nice aroma of raspberries, some astringency kicking through as well. Taste syrupy, you can still feel raspberries, sourness, almost no malt nor hops. Aftertaste long and dry, a bit like wine. I guess this kind of lambic’s would be the first choice of those people who usually prefer wine or cider over beer. I like it.
