Deep red colour, one finger of pink head, no lace. Smell is full of sweet, fruity raspberry, lightly funky, a bit of cheese rind as well, mix of sugary and tart berry juice is a pretty good description of this. Taste is of sweet berry up front, sugar coated raspberry and raspberry candy, mid palate of jammy berry flavours with a tart fruity aftertaste. Medium carbonation, medium bodied and lightly syrupy. A bit too sweet for my tastes perhaps but still quite good for a sweeter lambic something I could drink again easily.

750 ml green bottle purchased from LBCO for $9.85 CDN. Served chilled into glassware.

Appearance - a brilliant raspberry purple brilliance flows from the bottle that is hazy and capped by a finger and a half of pinkish head that will recede somewhat, but other parts will stay for the entire glass.

Smell - Tons and tons of fresh raspberries.

Taste - More fresh raspberries accentuated with a subtle tartness that shines through.

Mouthfeel - Smooth and creamy yet very delicate and light. Exteremly refined. Juicy finish.

Overall - WIth something as focused on one thing, as this beer is (raspberries) it can be hard to make a beer that is balanced inviting and make you want to go back for more even after the entire bottle is gone, yet this succeeded. While my experience with lambics is rather limited, this stands up as the best and most enjoyable one I've had something I could go to time and again.
