At Boulder Strong Ale. ’10 edition. Not very ’lambic’ like..but thin...having said that, it had an amazing raspberry nose and flavors. Incredibly fresh fruit for this age. Liked it more than New Glarus Rasperry if that tells you anything. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 17, 2012
On tap at Rackhouse Pub this was listed at 12% and I have to believe it based on taste and smell. The publican told me a batch of railyard went bad so they threw it in a barrel with raspberries for 16 months and this is what came out. Dark burgundy color with zero head, still looks good. Aroma was raspberry, wood, and high alcohol but still nice. The flavor was kind of sweet, raspberries and a touch of wood. This sort or reminded me of friek but better.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at rackhouse rare beer tasting, poured dark reddish with off white pinkish head, aroma was full of big raspberry, some funk, tart lemon notes, going into some biscuit and bread notes. Taste is big, sweet raspberry with a touch of tart lemon notes, finishing fairly sweet and bready as well. Nicely done. That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2010
Crushed at Fallng Rock with Honkeybra. Decent. Lots of raspberry on the nose with a nice tartness to it. Flavor is aight but a bit muddy. Not incredible but I kinda dig it. norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2008
On tap. Pours a cloudy garnet color with white head that disappears quickly. Big raspberry aroma. Mellow on the palate. Semi-sweet with a tart finish.

On tap at the brewpub. Loved this one. Total raspberry aroma was intense. The wave of raspberry flavor washes over your tongue in a big way. Medium in body. Great lacing to a visually beautiful dark brown beer. I thought this was simply awesome. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 22, 2007

Tap @ Wynkoop: Poured a hazy purple color with a pink head. The aroma had big raspberry notes. Very fruity with a hint of tartness... The flavor was lightly tart and fruity. Raspberry and tannic fruit skins. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 21, 2007

I haven’t rated many lambics but this one came across as pretty good. Sour up front but then that flavor subsides and the tart raspberry flavor comes through. A nice beer, especially for breakfast.
