I had a choice of fruits and raspberry is my favorite jam, so...

Cap and a cork on the bottle. Opaque and murky maple syrup color, some dark chunks. Initial carbonation was gone pretty soon, little to no head. Very raspberry aroma. Flavor is of fruit but was very fresh. I could almost taste the seeds and some stems. Medium body, a little cloying but there was minimal beer quality other than a slight malt muskiness in taste and up the nasal passages. Astringent at finish. Because there was no over-sweetness to it, I'll give this Lambic a head's up on a lot of American Fruit/Wheat brews. I tried to give it a medium high score as my skills at evaluating Lambics are minimal. Not a beer for me but its fun to taste unique styles in the world of beer.

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.
