My Bottom Line:JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAR 14, 2009
This immature P-Lambic develops enough tartness amidst its Fruit Loops-like quirkiness, but its juicy fruitiness, lack of funk and simplicity are disappointing.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is not much head atop the cloudy pink.
-This Fruit Loops-like character I’m getting might be the combination of lactobacillus, low carbonation and underlying sweet cereals.
-This was very drinkable, but felt underdeveloped to say the least. I would have been angry if I had paid lots of $$$ for bottles of this latest release.
-That being said, I know these guys can brew fantastic P-Lambics, so I will keep trying them out. I will be careful though...
nice in between sour and a fruit beer, tangy, w/ some raspberry. not quite a lambic, not quite a fruit wheat SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 13, 2009
Sampled at hellbilly’s hellraiser 3 gathering. Bottle courtesy of psprings. Pours the color of ruby red grapefruit juice with a thin head. Sweet and sour berry aroma. Flavor is slightly sour raspberries, wood and a bit of funk. Pretty good stuff. Thanks Paul! nuplastikk (6254) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2009
750ml bottle courtesy of ygtbsm. Big fresh natural raspberry aroma. Quality stuff. The raspberries flavor is refreshingly sour but mild and natural. Murky pink-ornage color. Smooth mouthfeel. Awesome. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 5, 2009
(750ml bottle, thanks ygbtbsm) Minimal white head atop hazy orange body. Aroma is medium sweet, raspberry, some funk/sour. Taste is medium sweet, raspberry sourness, light funk, wood. Light carbonation, light-medium body.

75cl bottle shared by YGTBSM. Mostly pink color with a hint of orange and a small head. Bright raspberry, with tart acidity, light funk, and a bit of cranberry in the aroma. Light berry sweetness balanced by a light tartness. Not as sour as the blueberry, and richer in the finish. Lightly carbonated but enough to move it over the palate. Mild, but pretty tasty stuff.

Bottle shared via psprings @ the Hellbilly Hellraiser 3.0 Tasting...THANKS PAUL!!! Ruby red grapefruit in color without a head to speak of. Aroma is of sour, unripened fruit. Again, can’t really distinguish that this is raspberry...but tasty. Lemon zest, vinegar, and funk. Not thick and viscous, not thin and watery. Right down the middle. jkwalking05 (4735) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2009
