Big thanks to jon2465 for sending this my way.
Beer pours a very nice reddish-purple with a thin white head. It almost looks like a red wine. Beer smells awesome: sour raspberries really take over here - it smells a bit like a raspberry oude bruin. Flavor follows the nose, it's really quite fantastic. Raspberries stand out front, but it's very nicely sour with a bit of funk and oak lurking in the background. The flavors are pretty much perfectly balanced, not too sweet, not too sour, and fantastic. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and coats the mouth very nicely. This beer is absolutely fantastic, an absolute home run of a lambic. It puts something like Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus to shame. This is what a raspberry lambic should be.

Thanks to Jon2465 for sending a bottle my way. This was my top want for a long time.
A- Pours a gorgeous slightly hazy purple with no head.
S- A very inviting aroma with notes of ripe blackberries, yogurt, hint of cheese, musty funk, barnyard, red grapes and oak.
T- Extremely jammy with fresh blackberry jam standing out that is not overly sweet nor tart. The blackberry flavor is so authentic, I feel like there are seeds somewhere in this beer. Lemon yogurt, musty funk, oak, and red grapes at the end.
M- Medium mouthfeel with a low carbonation. Really nice finish with the blackberry tartness and funk lingering .
O- Well damn, this is a fantastic beer. Certainly one of the best US fruit lambics and one of the most memorable beers I've had recently. Incredibly balanced and complex. I sipped on my pour for over an hour.
