From notes on October 25, 2012. From a bottle to a tulip.

A-I got a minor gusher on opening, but the head was manageable when I poured-two fingers-and it dropped pretty quickly. The brew was opaque and, surprise, raspberry colored.

S-Strong on the, surprise, raspberry, but also some tart green apple, and a little cereal grain. I also picked up a little grape.

T-Taste mostly follows the smell, i.e., tart raspberry is dominant with some tart apple and maybe pear. Not the most complex, but not unpleasant.

M-Crisp and drinkable with lots of carbonation and a drying finish.

O-Not a bad effort. The beer was not as complex as the best lambics out there, but the fruit flavors were genuine tasting, not artificial as can sometimes be the case with fruit lambics, IMHO. If you dig raspberries, here you go!

Thanks to Thomas for sharing this one!

Served in a goblet, it's a dark crimson red with white foam that has the faintest pink tint to it. Spotty lacing and a delicate arc or two forms on the opposite side of the glass.

Aroma is subdued raspberry with moderate acidity.

Puckering raspberry acidity with a seedy dry finish. Juicy and fruity, though I'm told not quite as sour as the latest batch on draft. Light to medium bodied, easy to drink. Overall it's pretty good, not as wild or funky as I'd hoped, but it seems to be a good stand in substitute for scarcer traditional framboise lambic.

3.86/5  rDev -5.6%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Bottle: Poured a deep reddish color ale with a nice large pink color head with good retention with some light lacing. Aroma of sour raspberry notes with some tart notes. Taste is also dominated by some tart raspberry notes with some acidic notes and some light funky notes. Body is quite full with good carbonation. A tad too acidic for my taste and missing some funky barnyard notes but still plenty satisfying.
