Clear red-mahogany colour with very pale pink colour. Good head retention.
Sharp raspberry aroma. Quite sweet. Almost jammy.
Sickly sweet, candy like raspberry flavour. Touches of barnyard funk that makes a lambic a lambic. For me, too sweet.
Medium body with moderate carbonation. Okay.
I don't really like this style of sweet lambic but I had the bottle to cook with. Interesting and not as offputting as I expected.

Amber reddish color with a thick one finger pink head with medium retention and leaving laces.
Predominant aroma of sweet raspberries and honey.
Nice flavor, sweet but not cloying at all. Its friendly tartness cut down the sweetness. Notes of raspberry juice, guaraná soda, green apples, strawberries and mild vinous oak. Dry aftertaste with a mild acid sensation.
Light body with sparkling carbonation.
Refreshing and balanced Lambic Fruit, not too sweet, nor acid. A bit juicy, but amazingly easy to drink.

A: Pinkish brown colour, a mix of the two together, no visible carbonation, 2 fingers of white merangue like head.
S: Fruity, sour, a lactic quality like milk, jam like strawberry jam, a sweet quality like white sugar itself, like I’m about to have jam on toast as there is a malty breadyness as well.
T: Sour and sweet all come in together, then the flavours of again a strawberry jam, then a malty breadyness all come into play, fruit then malt on each sip. Not really distinguishing raspberries themselves, all along I’ve been saying strawberries as that’s more the taste I’m getting as perhaps its that muted, though its obviously a raspberry beer. Mostly its just a red fruitiness. On the burp its definitely raspberry.
M: Medium somewhat acidic and syrupy body. Low carbonation
O: Delicious beer. Says it’s the oldest Frambois Lambicus in the world. Drank April 21 in Kunming China. Got this one here from one of my 2 friends who sells decent imported Belgian beers. I haven’t seen this beer elsewhere in the world, even dare I say Belgium that I can remember. I think its great, but after having Cantillon I know this has sugar added. Certainly not as much as Lindemans, which is more commonly found here.
