Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottled 9/2012.

Pours a murky dark red with a foamy reddish-white head that fades to nothing. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is sour, tart, and funky with raspberry, wood, and acidic aromas. Taste is much the same with sour fruit flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of acidity on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very good beer with some really tasty fruit flavors.

Thanks to Ryan for sharing this one. Served in a Half Acre taster glass.

A - White foam settles to a collar, wisps, and a few specks of lace. Hazed pink body with some visible suspended sediment.

S - Lots of raspberry, as you'd expect. More malt character than I was expecting from a lambic. Some fruit acidity, but only mild funk and sourness. Nice, but not particularly complex.

T - Taste is a less sweet, with some mild lemony lactic sourness and underripe fruit character to it. Vaguely seltzery, with moderate tartness and pucker in the finish.

M - Pleasant moderate carbonation, light body, with a dry finish. Some acidity, but not excessive. Perhaps a tad light for a 6%, but otherwise quite style-appropriate.

D - I enjoyed this and found it very easy to drink. Perhaps not a big enough upgrade over Framboises available to me locally to warrant the pricey shipping, but I'd certainly drink it again it if I were Belgium.

The beer is a beautiful radiant ruby hue and appears still. The aroma brings a huge dose of fresh raspberries. Tart raspberry in the flavor. Smooth like water. Virtually no carbonation. A beautiful showcase for the fruit. Elegant balance of sweet and tart raspberries. A terrific lambic from De Cam.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Bottledatum 9/2012. Slow gusher.

Appearance - Hazy pink body. Chunky bits floating about. Looks like pieces of raspberry. Some surface wisps remain.

Smell - Raspberry aroma is strong. Funky and lemony. The slightest hint of acetic acid.

Taste - Lambic flavor is stronger than the raspberry up front. Wheaty grain up front. Sharp lactic acid. Lots of raspberry in the middle. Finish is extremely sour and the acetic acid comes back.

Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Very sour. Medium body.

Overall - I liked it at first, but it wasn't as pleasant as I drank it. Too sour and simple in its profile.
