in my attempt to introduce my girlfriend to the wide world of beer, i suggested she try a lambic, as she likes a variety of fruit beers and i also had never tried a lambic. i found this beer very satisfying. a very cloudy, juicy looking concoction that had a wonderful raspberry aroma. it tasted sweet like juice, with a slight tartness that was appealing. i wouldn't want to drink more than one or two due to the sweetness, but it would be delicious for breakfast. i look forward to trying others within the style and will occasionally buy different ones to experiment with.

Presentation: 12.7 oz green mini magnum bottle that is corked and capped, “Authentic Lambic Beer” stated on the label also the ingredients are : water, malt, wheat, hop, yeast, sugar, flavour, raspberry (20%). “Best before end” freshness date marked on the back label.

Appearance: The colour lays somewhere between burgundy and brick red, cloudy to the point of being murky in a way. Thin bubbly lace has a pinch of pink colour to it, some champagne like bubbles force their way to the top.

Smell: Aromas of raspberry puree or syrup, tart and yeasty with undertones of horse blanket and mustiness.

Taste: Moderate body with a touch of syrupiness in the start, semi crisp and smooth mouth feel from the tiny bubbles. Subtle sweetness of raspberries upfront quickly gets a one-two punch of tartness to give the mouth a puckering sensation. Small hint of barn yard / horse blanket flavour in the middle, hops are not noticeable. Yeast plays around in the back and becomes more prominent in the finish. Light suggestion of grain towards the finish as the tartness fades.

Notes: Perfect balance of tartness and fruit sweetness, very true to style and seems to been on the lighter scale in comparison to some of the more boisterous and some times overly syrupy fruit lambics which makes it an even better pick to pair up with a Sunday brunch.
