A-Clear pink while pouring, Deep bright ruby in the glass, highly carbonated.

S-Lots of raspberries, not much oak and a tad bit of funk.

T-Sweet raspberries, maybe some sugar, or just overly sweet raspberries. Slight tartness. The Raspberries really dominate here.

M-Medium bodied, a lot heavier than I was expecting, not much carbonation either.

O-I love raspberries but this was too sweet and didn't have enough funk/sour/tart whatever you want to call it.

750 ml corked bottle served in a Half Acre tulip. Thanks to pmoney for the share. Bottled 3/17/12, batch 71-09.

A: Pours a solid ruby, grapefruit color with an off white head forming on the pour. Recedes pretty quickly to nothing, but you can still some life in the body. Probably a dirty glass after all the other beers sampled.

S: Very tart raspberry, lemon grass with a light malty sweetness. Restrained funk, but obviously the raspberry is the star of the show.

T: Sweet raspberry with a tart raspberry jam aspect to it. Cracker malts with a sweet, cracked wheat flavor to it. Extremely acidic and sour finish to it.

M: A ton of carbonation with a nice light body. Super drying finish with an enamel stripping feel to it. Lots of pucker with a saliva evaporating dryness.

O: Definitely one of the most sour lambic style beers I've hever had. I definitely enjoyed this one however as I'm a fan of raspberries and I enjoyed the sweet, jammy-like qualities to this one as well.

The lambic was sampled at Winterfest 2013 in Indianapolis on 1/26/2013. Props to Upland for bringing several lambics.

Poured into the sampler glass from the bottle, the beer was a reddish hue like Cherry 7up with a nice tinted white head. The aroma smelled of sour fruits with a variety of berry notes observable. In the initial taste, one can immediately tell this is a raspberry lambic. The acidity seemed to mellow toward the aftertaste as the beer became sweeter. One also could detect vanilla with the modest sour notes. The aftertaste further displays quite a bit of natural seedy raspberry flavor. It is easy to tell his is made with real berries.
