Dark raspberry red, with a fizzy head that billows and dissipates quickly. The head appears as a very smooth carbonation in a light ring around the edges of the glass.

The aroma begins with a very medicinal cherry/raspberry, blended with a lot of earthy/mineral notes, and a strong amount of oak. Funk is present throughout, though seems to play a little bit more in the background due to the strength of the other aromas.

Taste begins funky, and sour, as it moves toward tart and sweet with a big burst of juicy cherries and raspberries. Backed by earthy mineral flavours, the finish is balanced by very well-blended oak and funk.

Great feel. Not too light or heavy, with a very smooth carb.

Overall a great lambic, apart from the slight medicinal notes in the fruit (although this comes out more in the aroma than the taste).

Just a gorgeous raspberry red color enters the glass with an effervescent head of red tinted foam.

The nose is rather earthy, minerally and gravel like. I smell raspberry fruit roll ups and a malty underpinning.

The flavor is strongly tart, sour and a bit waxy. Sugary raspberry flavor mixed with sour cherry this has an earthy mineral flavor.

The feel is sprite, light, bubbly and carbonated but not too sharp.
