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.

2011 at Moeder Lambic split with a fellow Murican I met.

Clear red and a persistent light pink tinged head.

Big ol' raspberry on the nose. Funky grassy and musty with some citric quality.

Light and tart on the tongue. Big delicious juicy raspberry on the flavor as is to be expected with this series. Musty funk. Finishes dry.

God this was great.

I saved this one to log as my 1,500th review. Big thanks to jcvanderbilt for the trade. Pours a bright juicy reddish pink with nice clarity and minimal head. The nose is unbelievable. Full of jammy raspberries, a hint of earth, layers of signature Cantillon funk, a hint of vinegar and oak, but mainly ripe fresh berries. I could smell this all day! The taste lives up to the delightful smell with fresh juicy berries, waves of tartness which are counterbalanced with sweetness. Each flavor pops as this is the tastiest lambic I have ever had the pleasure of trying. Mouthfeel is light with high carbonation. Overall, this beer is fantastic. Definitely the best of the loons I have tried and one that I will have to seek out again.
