2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Keg. Appearance- light pinky red, one finger white head which persists. Aroma- fruity, zest hints, strawberry dominates though. Taste- lots of strawberry, sugary sweetness, a little cloying. A bit too much sweetness but still very drinkable.
375 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear deep ruby red/amber/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense light pink head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of big juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, cherry, plum, blackberry, red apple, red grape, fruit jam/skin/seeds, hay, grass, wheat, bread, candi sugar, light pepper/funk, and yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of raspberries, fruity yeast, and malt/sugar sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big juicy/tart/tangy raspberries, cherry, plum, blackberry, red apple, red grape, fruit jam/skin/seeds, hay, grass, wheat, bread, candi sugar, light pepper/funk, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang, and light yeast spiciness on the finish. Lingering notes of sour/tart/tangy raspberries, cherry, plum, blackberry, red apple, red grape, fruit jam/skin/seeds, hay, grass, wheat, bread, candi sugar, light pepper/funk, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity yeast, and malt/sugar sweetness; with an awesome malt/sour/tart/tangy fruit balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Touch of puckering sourness. Light-moderate increasing dryness from sour/tart/tangy fruit. Medium carbonation and medium-plus body; with a very smooth, creamy/acidic/tangy/tannic, and slightly slick/syrupy balanced mouthfeel that is awesome. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 2.8%. Overall this is an outstanding sweetened fruit lambic! All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of raspberries, fruity yeast, and malt/sugar sweetness; very smooth and easy to drink with the modestly acidic/tangy/drying finish. Tons of authentic jammy raspberry fruit presence with balanced sweetness. Not as funky on the yeast as expected, but still highly enjoyable. A lot more acidity from the fruit, leading to a drier finish than other sweetened lambics I've had. Azote1488 (11) - Ñuñoa, CHILE - NOV 27, 2017

Bottle. Raspberry, sour milk, malt, light vinegar, and musty hay aroma. Reddish brown with minimal head. Moderately sweet raspberry, malt, lightly sour vinegar/lactic acid, and mildly bitter hay flavor. Good body.

Robe rubis dense, mousse crémeuse, mais peu persistante. Nez sur la framboise, une note lactée, un coté yaourt. Bouche à l’attaque fruitée, acidulée, équilibrée, agréable et ronde, avec une finale fruitée. La plus agréable de toute celles goûtées ce soir. matthewjk (1138) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 20, 2017
Not bad, you can at least say it is refreshing on a hot, humid summer day. The stevia imparts an artificial aftertaste that is not exactly pleasing. Sweet and sour elements are there as expected. Definitely not a re-buy at relatively expensive price point.

Very nice lambic, effervescent raspberry aroma, and nice carbonation really brings out raspberry flavor without being saccharine. Maracuja05 (2063) - Mainz, Rineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JUL 17, 2017
02-07-17 // bottle. Pours a deep red beer with a small white head. Sweet rasperry juice, like rasperry candies from my childhood. Light lambic acidity. josanguapo (2047) - SPAIN - JUN 15, 2017
Gift from Miguel. From Aldi. In Teku glass. After dinner. Not unpleasant, in fact nice. But doesnt seem a beer at all, more like a medicine for kids, like a new apiretal
