call me crazy, but i thought this was pretty excellent. i mean, at least is has a true lambic base, unlike others, so i can forgive its overly intense sweet before the finish. its hazy pink in color, definitely looks like it spent some time maturing in wood, and has a great big, barley pink bubbly head, very belgian, and nice to see a lively fruited lambic. the nose is sweet fruit before beer, with a nice tartness from the lacto, and a mellowness. the berries provide some tartness too, which blends in well, but the overall impression of the fruit in both aroma and flavor is that its intensity is appreciated, but its sweetness is a little too much. thinking about the lou pepe beers, and seeing this one as an inferior product, albeit still a very very drinkable one, and one much more attainable. it really is aided by its high carbonation, and if this is the kind of beer you like, its outstanding. hard to hold it to a cantillon standard, that wouldnt be reasonable. its very well made, the fruit is lively and authentic, and although i wish for a little more sour to come though, i still really enjoyed this one. basically juice at this abv.

A: Pours a cloudy amber red with a little white head with low retention.

S: Framboise, champaigne and malt in the end.

T: This beer tastes like a champaigne, but more consistent and with a great sour.

M: Sour framboise drops with high carbonation and medium body. sour aftertaste too.

O: More champaigne than beer, its a wonderful beer to non beer drinkers!

11.2 oz bottle poured in a Jacobins tulip...Pours a dark blood red, that is very clear, interesting look. A huge purple head rises about four fingers, great retention and lacing...The aroma is very sweet raspberries not candied though, very similar to St. Louis Framboise. A hint of tartness of the finish helps to round this out...The taste is really nice, again sweet to start but saved by a nice strong tartness that breaks the sweetness enough to allow this to be drinkable.

A very successful fruit beet, albeit a sweet one. If you like the ST Louis, New Glaurus fruit beers this is for you.
