I am very appreciative of Stakem for sharing this 2008 bottled in '10 with Kegatron and me. Enjoyed from a Cantillon tulip to match. My 1000th bottle review

This is exactly what I conjure up in my mind when I think of a raspberry lambic, just outstanding in color and is beautiful sitting in the glass like a gem in its resplendence with a beautiful rosy glow and tight ring after collapsing from 3 fingers, the bead is tiny with light pink lace. The smell is incredible, just so packed with strong fruity and funky odor w/ light floral notes that are still punchy and fresh. The nose is intensely raspberry with kmild hint of sour yeast odor. I love the feel as much as the aroma with huge lactic acidity which seems to enhance the mild sweet tart edges of the fruitiness. There is a pretty dry finish, but semi-sharp with dry/acidic qualities and extremely high carbonation like champagne.

This blitzes the palate and mouth with both fruity sweet taste and very intense sour lactic infused flavor. The acidity intensifies as the beer is held in the mouth but there is enough sweetness in the flavor to balance from the full fruity raspberry enhancement. The taste comes off almost as bitter/spicy from the carbonic acid the high carbonation level provides. There is a puckering, mouth drying quality w/ slight woodiness and extra tart raspberry juiciness as it finishes with some residual berry, but the funk and bacteria sour flavors linger into the dry end. Simply a wonderful fruit lambic, not many out there that are this complex and able to be savored in the way I found this to be. Intense yet drinkable a true classic, one of the best I have ever had.
