Consumed at LCBS 2010 with great ratebeerians and members of BA

Big thanks to henrik for letting me have the pleasure of prying this from his hands.

A: Pours a nice reddish pink with a thin white head. Lite on the retention and a few spots of lace.

S: Subtle yet wonderful aromas. Tart berry and oak. Hints of vinegar as well.

T: Tart raspberry and hints of mulberry. Mild oak with a nice lactic quality. Sour without being too much, a mild vinegar note. No oxidation at all.

M: Nice and crisp, perfect carbonation, with a nice tartness from the middle through the finish.

Those who say this one is past its prime are wrong.

Tall bottle brought back across the pond courtesy of Jeffo - cheers man! Enjoyed at a tasting, alongside two other raspberry lambics for comparison.

Poured into a snifter. Soft cherry in colour, quite hazy, and with a thin head that recedes into a fine ring. Nice looking brew - colour looks genuine.

Great nose on this, with the tart raspberries stealing the show all the way. A bit of funk and musk kicking around in there as well, but really this is all raspberry and I thank them for it.

Great tart lambic, with a good balance between tart raspberry and traditional sour notes, funk, musk and citrus. This brew sits at about my upper threshold of sourness (at least for now; I'm certainly improving in this regard), so this would have to be a brew that I would share with friends when the mood hits me just right. Fortunately, this was one of those times, and so the balance of this brew really did it for me. Carbonation is firm, but not overpowering. Lingering astringent finish.

Were it not for its rareness I would certainly keep one kicking around the cellar as an exemplar fo the style. Great brew.
