750ml bottle, 2009 label, poured into an Echt Kriekenbier glass.
Pours a lovely raspberry red color, tones of purple and garnet, slightly hazy with a nice, thick, billowy pink head that has decent retention and leaves a touch of spotted lacing behind. The aroma is of fresh, fleshy, pungent raspberry, funk, light chewy oak and touches of vanilla. The flavors are right in line with the nose. Lots of freshly squeezed raspberry, oak, funk, light acidic vinegar, touches of sweet vanilla at the end. The body is great, it's juicy, thick, almost pulpy with a nice zippy level of carbonation that is very lively on the tongue with a great creamy finish.
Verdict: Spectacular fruited lambic from Cantillon and my personal favorite of the Lou Pepe beers. The raspberry is just so fresh and juicy and doesn't really need any support from other flavors to make this a spectacular beer, a great celebration of raspberry.
